    Default Official Android discussion thread

    Couple of week back I bought a HTC magic for Rs. 26,000 from a neighborhood retailer. Technically this is my second Android phone the first was a self flashed Openmoko's Freerunner. The piece I have is an imported set from Vodafone UK. In India the same handset is available through Airtel but without Google goodies including Android market [Edit: Firmware update not only enables market but also Sense UI]. This omission is a mystery to me. No one buys a Rs. 27K phone only for making calls and sending SMSs.

    This is not a review. But once you power-on the device it's Google all the way. IIt comes pre-loaded with Google maps, Google Chat, Android Market Place, e-mail client. Sooner or later there will be an Android phone for everyone . I will set the ball rolling with lots of pics. So here we go:

    Unboxing:

    Android is the Future of Mobile World!

    Hero is the best available Android as on date!



    hero is better than the iphone cos:
    1) multitasking (running several apps at once is useful)

    2) open development (no rules for apps so it has more potential than app store and its easier to make an app for android. also it doesnt need approval from anyone)

    3) much more customizable than iphone even if u jailbreak it

    4) flash support for browser. currently it needs improvement but there r a few games u can play online and watch video from several other sources than just utube. iphone doesnt hv any flash support and wont get it bcos it goes against some of the apps in their store. android will.

    5) trackball for better navigation

    6) better autocorrect for typing

    Thanks dude!
    I am away for my sis's wedding so I am kind of unable to update the thread. Will do it very shortly. Battery life is extremely shoddy probably my only gripe with this phone. With that kind of usage it will last around 8 hours. Thank goodness for min USB port I can charge whenever I can through my comp.
