    Which HTC Shall i have?

    Just looking for some help here to make my mind up, Orange contacted me earlier today because i can now upgrade my phone.

    The guy said they are going to expand my current tarrif:

    Currently: 1200 Minutes, Unlim Texts, No Data
    New: 2400 Minutes, Unlim Texts, Unlim Data

    That part is fine, he said i can have the new Nokia N97 but i dont really want a general phone i would like a HTC so i asked the question if i could have one of the new HTC SmartPhones.

    He said i can have any of them at no extra cost because of how high my bill's are on a regular basis i have like so many points on my account which is fantastic

    But what HTC do i get? i like to HTC Touch HD after seeing EduGod's since him having that is there a newer model out that has more features?

    Ta

    James.

    Touch Pro 2 is getting good reviews in my office. The N97 is a smart phone btw (has a slide out keyboard and simbian s60 OS)

    Be very carefull if the HTC has wifi and you intend using it Orange lock it down so its nearly impossible to use , forcing you to use their data network. There are work arounds ( look on google) but its a real pain.

    I've got the TouchHD - absolutely LOVE it!! Have played with the Pro2... but too bulky, and love the screen on the HD. There are rumours about HTC Firestone (HD successor), but nothing official, so wouldn't bother.

    Can't comment on how Orange lock it down though as got mine via CPW.

    I got the HTC Magic through Vodafone last week and it's brilliant: Touchscreen, WiFi, Android. It's also got loads of apps available and since Android is open source, most of them are free. I'm not sure if you can get it through Orange though but I highly recommend it if you can.

    Touch Pro2 for me too... I wouldn't say it's much more bulky than a Touch HD and there's no going back once you've had a keyboard!
