Re: Android/Linux for CDMA Touch Pro 2

I agree, I've had android up almost all day, I don't really care that much about sound right now, vibrate is good enough for me, but bluetooth is important for business useage... but I like android soo much, its hard to stay away.

I went those 8 hours and got 2 freezes where if i let it sit for about 3 mins it would go back to normal. everything was working good, text, twitter, gmail, market, smooth and reliable as could be for something that is still in development.

I am very impressed and this COULD be used on a day to day basis IMO if you don't care about EVERYTHING working 100%. just my $0.02
Agreed. In fact I opted to start using it as my primary OS. I just use my spare battery. When it dies I'll switch to winmo until I get home at which point I'll recharge the spare and start with android again tomorrow. I've really learned to dislike winmo over the past few months and am very disspointed in WP7.

Oh, and my favorite feature in Android is a simple fix on a pet peeve I've had with WM for years now. When I ignore a call it doesn't show up as "missed". I always wondered why Winmo thought a call was missed when I purposely ignored it. Nothing missed about it.

Re: Android/Linux for CDMA Touch Pro 2

When I use to have the HTG G1, i use to only get 8 hrs on it.... so this is really not too much off of what I use to have.

Re: Android/Linux for CDMA Touch Pro 2

I dunno if I got a dud or not but I bought my wife a Samsung Moment, the thing goes into airplane mode by itself and even though its fast as hell, it just dont feel right after using WM for many many years, feels more like a LG phone or a Razr. As an OS, M$ is by far superior. I know we all bitch and moan about WM but after playing around with a real Android phone and not just an SD card setup, I am not convinced yet Android will be the way of the future. I am not ready yet to part ways with WM. Just my 2 cents.

Well it's certainly not as hackable (android, i mean).

I've never seen an iphone or another android phone with the ability to dual-boot a second OS like we are doing right now on a Windows-based OS. So you gotta hand it to WinMo; it's easily the most versatile OS on the planet

But hacking isn't for everybody. In fact, those of us in this forum are an "elite few" who even know how to tweak in the first place. Most everyone else doesn't like to deal with doing what we call a hobby (tweaking our devices)

That's why the iphone and android are so popular: you get all the flash of a smartphone, but all the "tweaking" is done for you. Most people like that, others (like us who flash custom ROMs cuz we hate that aspect) don't.

WinMo's problem is that it's ancient and has a lot of dead weight it's carrying around. That's why guys like MightyMike are so excited for WP7. It's going to purge out all the old crap that lingers with WinMo and, therefore, make it comparable to the iphone and android phones that have lots of bling and new features

I can say I like the quickness of Android and I like browsing the internet on it too. It's not as painful browsing as it is on WM. I do consider WM to be very slow compared to Android for web browsing. Other than that, I don't see alot yet that would make me use Android all the time. I will continue to tinker with it, maybe it will grow on me.
