Those are two apps that I am interested in trying. I also really want to get Handcent to work, but probably will reserve the reason why it doesn't work in another thread, something that hopefully an upgrade OS can resolve if Sam keeps their hands out of it as much as possible.
The reason I got the phone is because doing the research, it is/was the best in specification basis, android phone. I don't know too much about the N1, but can it be used without unlocking on Tmobile? I don't have the information, but not sure about the Moto Droid either. Those are the next in specs, the one I have been watching on Tmonews is the HD2. So the N1 and HD2 might have better hardware specs as it comes now, but isn't that how it always is with technology. If it wasn't though, we wouldn't be advancing by having new advancements come out year after year. But at the time I got my phone, it was the best they had to offer, and it had features that I was looking for, albeit it might have some overhead downfalls, such as Samsung's touches to the OS and Tmobile's specifications, right, I mean the phone was made exclusively for Samsung. It's like, when I used to work for Wal-Mart, I heard that the reason the TVs were cheaper, was because they had one feature out of it to meet the specifications that Wal-Mart demanded in order to create the deals.
Not to get too far off subject, but I run a technology podcast with a friend. We started getting into a discussion about ISPs today. There might be some advancements with providers providing blazing fast speeds, but there really haven't been consumer mind blowing options. You got the big tycoons that are comfy with what is going on, but now Google is proposing offering in cities of 50K+ fiber to the door with Gigabit speeds. That's revolutionary in itself, but we have been technically stuck in the speeds until recent years with Verizon's Fiber service. Why, well you got big cable companies, and big dsl companies, that they have equipment to provide higher speeds, their techs in the field will tell you they are capable, but do they capitalize? No, they won't, because they are making the hefty penny of it all.
That's why I like technology more than networking and ISP business, in the sense that it is almost bionic and evolutionary. The reason being is that there is so much competition that someone has to create something better year to year to have a market share. I'll bet with Google's prospects we'll see battles with the FCC and other companies over it to try to limit it, or we'll see a big jump in offers from ISPs to provide faster service. Why? Because there is a new competition pretty much right on the door steps.
So, sorry for the long three hour book writing, lol. I am passionate about technology, really. It has its pros and cons, but I knew getting the phone, I'd be paying for it well after something new and better came, "20 month plan", but it does all the features and things that I drooled about back in October with the flip phone I was using. I really wanted more, and I currently have more. I am happy, so you know when I see someone with a phone that isn't as good as ours in a manner of speaking, I still point out their benefits. Though they might not have a magnetic compass like me
