Mordath, in all honesty, if you're making a handset choice with your penis then you're an idiot.

well i've just read from the nov issue of US maxim that studies show that you are 10 times more likely to get laid if you'fre sporting an iphone compared to android phones.

i mean really, the iphone does look sexier and a head-turner, that goes if you're a hater or a lover ^_^

I think Nokia wlll have to go with Meego or something like that soon. Symbian has been there for such a long time, however it proabably has now less apps than Android, even though it's so old and so popular.

I dont know what all the complaints are about with how often google are bringing new versions out, I'm using a htc hero with froyo using a custom rom, and I never have any problems at all. so at the end of the day its not googles fault the phone manufacturers take so long to update their handsets, and why they release them with bugs again isnt googles fault. and when gingerbread is available, I'll probably update to that, when the hero never will be officially. So the secret is when a new version comes out instead of crying like little girls about when your phone is gonna get the update, just have a search online, and see if you can do it yourself with a custom rom, otherwise just shut up!

But I don't get the point of your comment really!

old phone was iphone 3gs but then i got the htc desire cos of the world of opportunities it allowed me and thanks to the rapidly evolving android os i just keep getting more and more from my desire :D
oh but then again having a desire i dont really have issues with having an old version of android since htc has been pretty fast rolling out the new iterations :)

If you are a manufacturer using the exact same os without any modification as you competitor, then what sets you appart? what is going to make a customer get your over te other, other than specs. I can buy a dell pc if i want to or i can go get a cheap custom computer from my local computer shop, they both run windows.

So dont complain about bloatware mate, i dont want my galaxy to be identical to a htc desire. I like my swype texting and mobile ap.

on topic 3 years is a very short time to achieve what android has done. good work google, keep it up.

just because you have a smartphone doesn't make you automatically smart.
if you can't get rid of the bloatware manufacturers put in your phone like pc manufacturers do to your puter maybe you should go to symbian or buy a motorola startac or nokia 3400

what about these androids, ios, wp7 being available for sale or as free ware,
and the user gets to download them & the user manually installs it on his compatible handheld device.
Just like we are able to do it on Comp's which come Os empty.
Phone manufacturers have to be worried about giving the best possible hardware for the price they take.
Who knows, may be double bootable phones will be available too.
