Android love

October 23, 2010

Today I had the pleasure of setting up a box full of HTC Desires and Samsung Apollos. Client is replacing his vehicle tracking system with a bunch of Google powered latitude phones. Have to tip my hat, the solution the clients booking system & capabilities of these phones is going to be awesome. Specially when you think of how much money is spent on vehicle tracking these days. Lot of fun watching 13 little icons around my office all being tracked, felt like something out of a movie!

The Samsung Apollo was surprisingly good for a budget alternative. I liked it, felt good in the hand, typing was easy on the touch screen and it made sense. Would be a nice first android phone for someone looking to spend less than £20 a month.

Speaking of contract costs, T-Mobile just reduced the HTC Desire monthly contract to £25 from £30 on standard domestic contracts(600 min, 500 text unlimited internet and flex boosters). This is to account for the HTC Desire HD that launched yesterday.

HTC Desire HD is pushing beyond the 4? screen and even less battery life. When is too big too big, and when is too little battery no longer practical? welcome your feedback.
