Something exciting for your Tuesday morning – screen rotation comparison!

April 6, 2010

EuroDroid posted an article as equally sarcastic as the one I am now posting. Haven’t you always wanted to see a comparison for browser screen rotation? The phones being compared are the iPhone, HTC Desire and the Sony Ericsson X10. See below and try not to get too excited after you notice that the HTC Desire wins easily.



A detailed HTC Desire review from UK T3 Magazine

March 31, 2010

T3 have published a more detailed review of the HTC Desire on their site. They have acknowledged that the Desire is an iPhone-beater (not killer because you can’t kill a phone that’s already sold millions can you?).

Here are a few snippets:

Right now, let’s put aside that dumb phrase “iPhone killer”. The fact that a phone is better than Apple’s all-conquering, landscape-changing, gadget-genre-inventing device doesn’t “kill” it, any more than Chelsea defeating Man United means that that particular football team is dispatched to the Araldite Glue League (Northern Area). But make no mistake: this phone is better than the iPhone.

As we mentioned, the Desire is one of the most powerful Android phones on offer, and it shows when you pick it up for the first time. It reacts to your slightest touch, slipping between home screens without a hint of slowdown, and allowing you to open multiple applications without destroying the user experience.



7 reasons to NOT choose the HTC Evo 4G over the HTC Desire

March 25, 2010 have posted a nice little article telling you why you should choose an HTC Evo 4G over a Google Nexus One.

That’s all very well for US users but what about us UK folk who probably won’t see 4G for another 5 years?

Well I’ve put together my comparison list for reasons NOT to choose the HTC Evo 4G over the HTC Desire. I will use the same comparisons that Androidandme but will use the Desire as the example phone rather than the Nexus One


Mozilla stick with Android and ditch Windows Mobile

Mozilla Firefox Fennec

Mozilla Firefox codenamed "Fennec" for Android

Mozilla have made an interesting move in ditching development for Windows Mobile phones and are now only supporting Android (and Maemo) phones.

This comes after Microsoft removed NDK support. There are no plans for iPhone or Symbian support easy so we’re all pretty lucky.

A very early beta version of the browser was shown off some months back and Mozilla hope to have the latest version of Mobile Firefox, or codename “Fennec” out later this year.

Add-ons are supported by the way and more are being converted to work with the mobile browser too.
