The Email app is a doddle to set up
The inevitable Twitter client - and the inevitable, overexposed Stephen Fry
The 2.8in, 320 x 240 screen isn't an ideal size for browsing
Plenty of apps to try, maybe even buy, in the Android Market
Hurrah for 3.5mm plugs
Glad to see they've got a normal headphone socket - perhaps manufacturers are finally realising that stupid proprietary connectors are a major source of phone rage and user grumpiness.
Best phone by HTC
I would prefer to go with HTC Tattoo Smartphone because it has a clean finish, pleasant to the eye and touch. Despite a plastic shell, not creak under the fingers. Same goes for the touchscreen which does not suffer, unless treated wild, no particular weakness. For probably a target of early adopters who want to install a Android smartphone, the silver finish, with a gradient of black, and the logo of the operating system from Google back to the Tattoo are young and apparatus connected.
re screen res
yes, skype for instance isn't in the market when I search for it
I like the phone although the battery life is atrocious.
Screen resolution and android apps
I had heard that because of the low screen resolution a lot of android apps aren't compatible with the phone and don't even show up in the app store. This isn't mentioned in the review, is it indeed the case?
the on-screen digital zoom bar and camera/video toggle are features of Android 1.5 as well.
