What should I use as my temporary phone?

August 7, 2011

Well my poor little HTC Desire S will be shipped off tomorrow by UPS to HTC repairs. This is to have the USB socket/mainboard repaired as I mentioned in my previous post.

It can take up to 7 working days for the repair to be done so that’s more than a week I’ll be without my phone 😦

I have a couple of phones I can use in this time of mourning – firstly I still have my Nokia N95. This  was a great little phone in its time but now, with the demise of Nokia, Ovi and S60, it might be a bit old-hat.

I also have a new Nokia 6303 Classic phone. This runs a custom S40 6th Edition.

Do I want to just forget about having a decent phone and use the Classic or should I attempt to be able to tweet and update my Google+ on my ancient N95?

From Symbian to Android

March 10, 2010

I have yet to get my HTC Desire and experience the frightening change from Symbian to Android but Stefan Constantinescu has.

He brought himself a Nexus One and details his first few weeks in the big “switch” to Adnroid. It makes quite an interesting read for people like me who have yet to get an Android device.
