Security for virtualized datacentres

In an ideal world, yes, but the resistive screen used on the 845 isn't particularly responsive, and I resorted to the optical navigator rather more than I should have needed to. It was very irritating, for example, to try to sweep through the main apps menu only to have an app think it had been tapped and run.

Side

If anything lets this handset down big time, it is the poor responsiveness of the screen. I found it immensely frustrating and a constant irritation.

The HSDPA tops out at 3.6Mb/s. This isn’t a deal-breaker, but I’m used to higher from my HTC Desire - reviewed here - and in that context the 845 felt sluggish.

Vodafone has taken the opportunity to pre-configure Vodafone Music and MyWeb, which is part of its 360 service. These are accessed from the main home screen, as are email and contacts. There’s a row of four soft buttons along the bottom of the every home screen that take you to the main menu, to messaging, to the dialler - see, I said you don’t need those Call and End buttons - and allow you to move between thumbnails of home screens.

You might need that thumbnail view. You start out with a row of seven home screens, but can stack rows on top of each other. After adding my eighth row of seven I got bored. How many shortcuts is one person likely to need?
