Re: Smartphones

Great idea my super techno friend.
I have a Droid Charge and think I am at the limit of what I need with a phone. It's getting too much.

Re: Smartphones

Mrs. Des wants one of these phones - an iPhone - but I am sure there are cheaper equivalents that do the same job?

iPhones rock and the app's are the best. Well worth the money, unless there just blatantly getting bent over

Yes it has come with swype, Ive been trying it out. Find it cool only problem I found was knowing where the next letter was on the keyboard .
One great thing about it is the voice recognition app, it makes it really easy to answer a txt quickly, no need to worry about typing it

Another update:
Camera is amazing
Music player sounds fantastic, even with the headset supplied, 5:1 channel, lovely base.
Internet and multiapps run really quick and smoothly

Re: Smartphones

Congrats on your new toy. I am now without a computer since the move and use my smartphone for everything. I recently did all the superuser rooting and new rom and overclocking ect. and in my opinion it was a waste of my energy. The new rom is cool though.

Dual 1.2 core processor, also it has the new android software(gingerbread)
Far more apps available than the iphone (not so tied down).
5* rating on most sights and its brand new, iphone4 is last years model.

Compared it with my mates iphone4 and we both agree its better.

Good deals atm for pay monthly, you can get it free for less than 30 a month.

Fantastic screen and the camera records in full 1080hd
