    Low hanging fruit
    I'll go first

    No self respecting ICT technician would own an Iphone

    Give it to your wife/girlfriend/daughter and go and buy an Android

    An interesting reply. What, in your opinion, would you say puts Android in a different class? I've never really looked into it but if there is a good case for it I may be tempted to get one.

    Android Apps are very cheap or free, plenty of Lite versions, for starters.

    Its probably not good enough reason for you, but I have three main justifications 1) Its an Apple, and I personally think their products are more of a fashion accessory (an expensive one at that), 2) Android is an open os and can offer benefits such as multi-tasking and 3) is now being used across various products and by numerous manufacturers that surely this is where future developments are likely to take place, continual improvement and OTA updates.

    Mine was purely tongue in cheek to wind up some fellow IPhone loving Edugeekers

    Android has reached the stage where normal people can use them and don't think they are geeky.

    My desire and my girl's IPhones are functionally very similar and as easy/nice to use as each other.

    There's a lot more choice in the Android world . My wife went for a Legend as she wanted a smartphone to Facebook on - liked how mine looked/worked (same as IPhone) - didn't want to fork out loads of dosh up front /high month tarriff- but wanted something physically smaller than an Iphone/Desire.

    I'm having a lot of fun (or pain ) in developing an app for Android and I like the open source attitude and lookling forward to seeing if Flash works nicely with it when HTC release Android 2.2 for it

    regards

    Simon

    I think we should get back on topic to be honest. Its not helping the original poster

    I find these handy:

    VNC Viewer
    RDP
    Ping Application

    I used the built in mail and calendar app allot.

    apps on my iphone that I find useful:

    - Last.fm
    - tuneinradio
    - skysports football scores
    - engadget
    - dropbox

    I have heard the tom tom app is good but expensive.

    would not bother with facebook app as its slow and crashes when I try and post comments.
