    HTC must be a bit hacked off that Google have dropped them as handset maker... probably something to do with Google wanting to kill off Sense?

    £549 for the unlocked version!!!!!!!!! If it was priced the same as the Nexus One was at launch I'd consider it, but not at that price.

    It does look like a tasty device, but it'll only be affordable on contract really. I'm never going to spend over half a grand on a phone...

    Another challenger in the game of "can we make Tom buy a smart phone" - this one's onto a loser though, battery no real improvement, but more "guff" = tied to the wall. Also - no keys = bad nooz for ol fatfinger here

    You don't have a Smartphone Tom! Wow that does shock me! I thought with all the technology in Smoothwall Towers you'd have been a gadget king! Please don't say you still have a Nokia 3110 hehe

    Not hugely surprising. He did do his presentation from a notepad at the Edugeek Conference... Its refreshing to see someone actually thinking about what they need rather than buying into the crowd mentality that is so common now. I've got staff who can barely use computers who've bought iPhones but don't use anything more than the phone/texting aspects...

    The thing that annoyed me most was the fact it's virtually identical to the Samsung Galaxy S. I know I'm a bit vein and only want to get rid of my Galaxy because EVERYBODY seems to have one now but I'm not paying £550 for the priviledge.

    Now Exclusive: LG's 4-inch Android phone with dual-core Tegra 2 and 1080p video coming in early 2011 -- Engadget looks interesting!

    Samsung's other Gingerbread phone is out in February 2011 and looks far more impressive.

    Not quite it's a 6xxx, and the battery lasts next to forever, and it makes calls and texts. I *would* like to be able to do a bit more internetsy stuff on the move, but I am not willing to pay so high in battery life/size/touch-screen related irritation.

    I look at some and think so what, you can play some stupid game about irritated avians, or update your facebook on the train - these are not use cases of a phone for me.

    Edit: this does not mean I don't like gadgets.. but I am fussy. Canon 40D, Kindle, and squeezebox being my favoured electronic devices.

    If you ever find your UTM starts sprouting features more suited to a breville sandwich maker, you will know I've gone "all iphone"
