Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970Hi David. I'm also from SA. I was also a die-hard SE fan, until I got the Innov8. I love the Innov8. Being a woman (with small hands), I find the Innov8 a bit bulky and heavy compared to my previous phone (SE W880), but am getting used to it now. I'm sure you will love the Innov8 too. Good luck with your choice.
Forgot one tip for better battery life
Turn off optical mouse.
Actually Dpad works just as quick.
Or just enable mouse when using the internet.
Anonymous, 10 Aug 2009why i can't install jbak TASKMAN?Re: Jbak Taskman
What version are you trying to install?
If it is the latest one you need to get a developer certificate (not easy but I got one which allows me to sign my own apps)
Look for version 1.30 which allows you to install it ,, Does same thing basically ..
Google Jbak Taskman 1.30.
I am going to post just 2 tips to increase battery life.
The rest you have to find yourself.
1. Download and install Jbak Taskman and after installation stop ''screen capture''.
2. Disable Themes effects settings>themes>general>options>themeeffects>off
also run a movie or music in repeat mode for the entire night until the battery is completely DEAD. Then charge the battery fully with phone OFF.
That is the last time I am going to post this.

Run some music or a film in repeat mode with the charger hooked up, Let it run all night...............then unplug charger, let the film run again over and over until the battery is COMPLETELY empty and phone turns off
Then plug in the charger (not the USB one) but the AC charger and leave it charge with the phone off,
Before doing that (this is important) download and install Jbak Taskman and disable ''screen capture'',
this is what did it for me.

I've swap my N95 8G for Innov8 and I do admit that I'm quite disappointed specifically with batt life. It even gets warm when I'm browsing the net which something I haven't experience with my N95. And installing 3rd party app is not hassle-free. The only thing that is commendable is the build quality, but for me the battery issue ruins everything.
