Played with it...
It really is much nicer in the flesh..err plastic. I played with one for around half an hour at the weekend in a Vodafone shop. The screen is very responsive and the App market is growing all the time. I can see huge potential for the Android system. My problem is should I buy now or wait and see where the Samsung i7500 is heading in UK
I stopped using WinMo as it's too slow, unstable and the UI is years out of date no matter how you dress it up with things like Touch Flo.
@Rob Haswell - agree the street view is very cool.
@koichan - Totally agree HTC has some very nice hardware that Android would look great on
Hans, try to keep it on subject, please. I'm from Europe as well... just fyi do you know where is South Carolina vs South Dakota? Maybe you do, but not many Europeans know, yet they all expect everybody to know everything about Europe.
To be more accurate, I was not comparing size of continents. Each country has it's own separate network (yes own by few big players) and thus you have lot of small markets, US is different and people expect to have same coverage and rate across whole US (btw. I can call from any US city to any US city for the same rate, can you do the same in Europe?).
Also don't forget the population differnce (call it densite if you want).
Yes, it really sucks in US and I wish it would change.
Colleague has one of these
...and it's very nice. The on-screen keyboard is nearly good enough to convince me to ditch the TyTN2 and get one now, but I'll see how he gets on with it first. I soooo want to move to an Android device but the G1 is just to fugly and I really want a hardware keyboard.
The only other thing stopping me migrating away from WinMo was the lack of SatNav, but with AndNav (free) and CoPilot coming for Android, plus imminent releases of other goodies like an Android client for LogMeIn, this platform is starting to look extremely attractive.
Black would have been better than white though. :-\
Got the phone
It looks much nicer in real that it does in pictures.
Considering the price, beats the iPhone hands down - in fact, even if they were the same price, I would say it is nearly as good.
4 x faster than that OAP?
that typed "Mary had a little lamb, it's fleece was white as snow."
But could he spell though?
