The HTC One X – So close yet so far

April 6, 2012

Well, I’ve been patient enough to wait for the HTC One X to come out and thought I’d go have a look at it seeing as my contract with T-Mobile is now up (has it really been 2 years since I started this blog?!).

I went to my local T-Mobile store to check it out and jesus – it’s huge!

The offer I had from T-Mobile retentions was to stick at my current £10/month tarrif (100 minutes, unlimited texts/Internet) and pay £260 for the handset – not a bad deal at all really considering how much the phone is worth.

Anyway, I went and checked it out in the O2 shop (where they had a non-dummy version) and it was a lovely device but just incredibly big compared to what I’m used to. I’m not saying I wouldn’t get used to the lovely 4.7″ screen but it is quite a big jump up from the Desire S.

I was all ready to buy the handset from T-Mobile and do a HTC One X Vs HTC Desire S comparison review and video but they didn’t have the handset in white sadly. If they had, I would have been writing a very different post.

I know white phones are a bit ‘ooh look at me’ but I felt like I wanted a change from the usual black colour of my Desire S. So anyway, I didn’t go for it in the end. I think I’m going to hold out and see what Samsung have to offer with the Samsung Galaxy S3 handset which will hopefully be officially announced on the 22nd May.

Patience hurts sometimes.

Plants Vs Zombies for Android now available to download for free!

May 31, 2011

Finally, after months and months of waiting; Plants Vs Zombies is finally out on Android and best of all, today only, it’s FREE (usual price is $2.99)!

Here’s the bad news: it’s only available via the Amazon App Store.

BUT, here’s the good news: even if you don’t live in the UK you can still get Amazon App Store working on your Android phone. There are some instructions here on how to get the Amazon App Store UK working on your Android phone.

Plants Vs Zombies Android out tomorrow for US

May 16, 2011

PopCap announced earlier tonight that Plants Vs Zombies and Chuzzle would be exclusively hitting the Amazon App Store for US customers tomorrow (16h May) – for FREE!

This is very sad news for us European customers as the Amazon App Store is STILL not available to us. What have we done to be treated like this? PopCap have not announced if or when the games will be available through the Android Market which obviously has the larger user base. Perhaps like Angry Birday Rio it’ll just be an exclusive for a few weeks or something?

So close yet so far to having Plants Vs Zombies on my HTC Desire.

It's in sight but not in reach just yet for UK users
