Has the term "Smart Phone" run its course?
No one would question that smart phones have become ubiquitous in the modern age. People who barely understand how Microsoft Word works have fairly high-tech devices in their pockets, and while not everyone who owns a smart phone uses it to its full potential, they still use it. But what do they use it for?
Take a look around a restaurant or a store, and you will see a significant percentage of the people there with their eyes glued to their phones. Are they dialing a number or checking their... Read more →

I originally got the HTC Desire to review (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ghRFtDD4t9M) but found that I liked it so much that it has become my actual phone.
The UI of Android is so good now that it allows me to get my work done, with the use of some great apps. I found in comparison, the iPhone is/was superb, but too distracting with the little games and utilities that ended up burning my spare time.

Great phone but looses out completely due to lack of language support for right to left languages used in the middle east and some of the Asian languages…
(Hindi, Parsi etc). Disgrace that in 2010 a product which claims tobe universaland is competingto become the leading OS for mobile phonesand other gadgets can't get this right - See support in Windows and on the iPhone DO NOT Buy as you may get annoying squares if anybody uses an unsupported on a web site, SMS, e-mail or other textual programs. Get withit GOOGLE Arabic, Hebrew, Hindi and the othet languauges are here to stay and form a big piece of the market

it seems like every US carrier now has a hero/magic based device and a nexus one/desire based device (verizon has droid incredible and droid eris, tmobile has…
the mytouch 3g and nexus one, at&t has the nexus one and sprint has the hero and EVO 4G - i know the EVO isnt nexus one based but it was what sprint used to replace its potential nexus one)

Had mine for 2 days now and I must say I am in love with this phone. I am not one to write a review, but everything is great. It's fast and responsive.
I was worried about the touch keyboard, but it works perfectly. The screen is amazing and the options of what it can do are incredible for one coming for an PDA+ dumbphone combo. (although I miss PalmOS PIM). My question is: is there anyone out there using some kind of screen protection? wjat kind. I dont'really like cases and was considering InvisibleShield from Zagg which I have used on some mp3 player and the like, but never on a touch screen. Will it ruin the screens responsivness?...

Confirmed for T-Mobile, but is there a release date?
Hey guys, I'm really really waiting on this phone, as I still have the G1/Dream, which is barely chugging along. I heard this was confirmed for T-Mobile, and had a supposed release date for the end of March. That's nearly upon us, yet I haven't heard any updates on it. Has it been delayed? I am very psyched to see many android phones in the pipeline and am in desperate need for an update to my hardware to take advantage of all the android 2.0 goodies. Thanks. -Tim

HTC Desire AT&T 3G?
I was looking at getting the Nexus One or the HTC Desire as a second phone to complement my iPhone 3GS. Will any of the two support the 3G band? I know people say the nexus one will be coming out because of the fcc filing seen, but I cant confirm this, so I dont want to buy one with only Edge, and then have a new one come out shortly after. Thanks

Flash 10.1 performance, laggy build?
Has anyone got a clip of it showing Flash content? Can it play HD smoothly? I've been trying to look for one but can't to find it anywhere. I noticed that the Desire has an animated background running, although when switching through screens there was visible lag. Can it be put down to a build that isn't finalised, or the chronic issue that plagues most, if not all Android handsets of laggy transitions?

Verizon release?
All the information leaks regarding this device show both GSM and CDMA versions of the device. Different rumors point to different releases for the device, and don't really mention carriers. The most information leaked, such as here, http://www.androidcentral.com/htcs-2010-android-sm... , refers to an April release, but I've also seen plenty of stuff pointing towards January. Has anybody heard more about this? I currently am testing a Motorola Droid on... Read more →

The phone to take Android to the top?
I have been waiting a long time for this, ever since seeing theHD2 specs and then finding out it ran Winmo 6.5! I think this could be the phone to officially take Android to the top, especially if it performs anything like the HD2 in terms of hardware, but of course running Android 2.0 will give it the edge in the OS stakes. I like the look of the industrial design but I just hope it is made from solid materials, looks a little plasticy in the new images that have just come out. Can't wait...
