Samsung Wave II?
Samsung Wave II?
I've checked the Defy out and so far it's in the top of my to get list if I can't get a desire. But It's a rugged phone(splash/dust/drop resistant). Are there any phone like this with this quality in the non rugged list? Maybe using the money spent on rugged to get an AMOLED screen
Woah, The redbull pricing is amazing. :O
I'm really tempted to go that route... Anyone know what number porting costs?
Will the redbull network run through Cell C? I've never used Cell C, how is the reception? Service etc?
http://www.theinquirer.net/inquirer/...h-owners-happyMOBILE PHONE MAKER Sony Ericsson has started rolling out an update to its Xperia smartphones that will offer multitouch support for its flagship Android device, the Xperia X10.
In a blog post, the company also said it will deliver optimizations, bug fixes and some language additions. The multitouch functionality won't be provided to X8 or Xperia mini owners, though.
Sony Ericsson originally had no plans to support multitouch for the X10, but in a blog post last year it said it would, due to a technological breakthrough.
This might be a bit of consolation for long-suffering Xperia owners, who have been quite vocal about their dissatisfaction with the slow pace of the company's software updates. For example, some owners are still waiting for an update to Android 2.1, all the while watching similarly marketed handsets from HTC and Samsung already running Android 2.2 since last year.
But this update is very far away from being Android version update software. On its most recent blog post, Sony Ericsson has had to remove a few posts from critical Xperia owners, most likely due to a few venting their frustrations with the company.
Of those comments that survived, Ismail echoed the thoughts of many when he wrote, "What a useless update. We need Froyo, don't you hear our voice?? If you ignore your customer needs, you'll lose your market." ?

A truly great phone indeed.
SE has lost touch and is already planning to release the arc, play and neo.
All with out dated hardware and software.
SE has done it's best to bury negative comments and lie about the device.
And has breached rules once again by suddenly no longer supporting the device.
Also the issues with restarting and overheating still continue to plague the x10 and it's users.
A x10 staff member admitted that the x10 was a massive learning curve "at the cost of the customers!!"
See where this is going?
Even so SE does no longer support the x10... they still don't mind keeping on selling them.
SE customers where robbed.. end of story.
And it's not just x10 users...
vivaz, x1, x2, x8 and saito users report similar ****.
Where the hell is the dude that wrote the nag article for the x10?
I would love to hear the comments on this.
My next phone will have to be tegra powered.. Dual core with a n-vidia GPU FTW~!!!

1) SE have to adapt their UI to work properly with any Android release. Thus far 2.1 is probably the only update that early adopters can look forward to, but as no-one actually has an inside line to SE we can't say anything for sure. And Timescape/Mediascape is a pretty huge job to adapt for.
2) Carriers messing around with the firmware to suit their own needs and software.
Also, SE was out of the game for a long time, and has only recently become relevant. And they're not the only ones leaving devices in the dust, remember that.
Also what good is a phone that can hardly be heard or lags the moment you get a call??
Not on a R7000 phone!
SE is already planning on releasing it's new line of droids..
And the hardware is already out of date.
The arc, neo, pro and play = ****.
SE was out of the game cuz they chose to screw it's customers since the X1.
Also the lack of tech support, the 3 times a phone must be sent in for hardware repairs.
How does one justify that?
Timescape/Mediascape are mostly to blame for the x10's lags and burps.
and the methods of implantation were.. bad... very very bad.
plus the SE x10 roms are filled with horrid bloatware.
And how do you keep selling a product that is no longer being supported?
SE's intentions are clear, they want money without the effort.
Also SE has clearly stated that "they feel 2.1 is perfect and even better than a vanilla installation of 2.2 or 2.3"
Blatant lies as 2.3 brings in alot of optimizations and features to a android device.
So SE can burn in hell with my x10.

Both feature an 800MHz CPU which is decent. I don't really know the difference between the two brands of CPU.
One thing that bothers me is that I can't seem to find out what the RAM and internal memory id exactly for the Ideos. Huawei's main website only has a couple of press releases on the phone, and nothing more...
Being that Motorola is a better known brand(to me) I would probably go for the Defy. My brand of choice is still HTC. I think I have gotten used to the Sense GUI for Andoid in the last year and it would be difficult for me to switch to vanilla interface or another GUI...
Motorola uses Motoblur and from what I can see it has some features that makes it better than the sense and some features that makes it worse. I'm thinking the Defy so far. They are mostly equal in specs but the defy can take a beating... it can safely be fully submersed in water which is orsum. I'm thinking I might just install vanilla Android on it if I get it. I'll see...
Any other opinions?
I'm waiting for Motorola's tegra2 gaming phone.
I can wait... :)
Also i wasn't fighting or anything i just find it sad that sony just could not make the x10 what it was supposed to be.
Minecraft coming to Android?
This could be pretty cool to kill some time. I wonder how they would integrate controls on touch-only devices.While a final release hasn?t even been reached on the PC platform, Minecraft is already busy developing a mobile version of the game. They considered sending it out of house for porting, but ultimately decided to do it themselves. This port will be available for both Android and iOS later this year. When the game will shed its beta tag, however, is unknown.
I'll let you know if I come across anything on this in the future...
Hopefully I will be able to upgrade to something sufficient for this sort of game/app at the end of this year.
I'll still keep my eyes open for any news on the official Minecraft port...
So I rooted and flashed my HTC desire with the gingerbread ROM (Cyanogen mod7).
Certainly improvements in speed.
I'll see if I can upload some screenshots
Got my Samsung Galaxy S today! :D Could anyone please recommend some apps that I should install (besides the ones on the first few pages of this thread)?
