Very nice thread. i've got a Backflip.
What are the colours for in the version chart? The Dell Streak looks interesting, its a shame they don't sell a non-phone version
[QUOTE=jlj1;23734835]What are the colours for in the version chart? The Dell Streak looks interesting, its a shame they don't sell a non-phone version[/QUOTE] Blue means the device has official updates for that version. Green means they ship with it.
Droid x. can't wait for 2.2 to come./
there are a few phones missing from that chart

I've been using android for ~6 months now, and honestly my next phone will probably also be an android phone. I love it
You should note next to the device name what regions it is available in. I don't think the Nexus One is available in Australia :saddowns:
I love android, never gonna use iOS or Symbian again, this kicks ass Rooted HTC Dream (G1) Cyanogen Mod 6.0.0 RC2 Running on Android 2.2 (Froyo)
Added some devices, I'm going to need some help with this list. If I upload the source illustrator files can someone do a few devices?
What would be the cheapest device with a keyboard? I'm really interested in replacing my BlackBerry Bold with one, though leaving a physical keyboard behind isn't going to happen.
I fucking love my Droid. It's amazing. I just wish they had said something about the Droid X before buying it; it came out literally a day after the 30-day exchange ended. Anyone know if they announced anything concrete about Froyo's release for the other Android phones? Also, Ben, I THINK the Droid is the cheapest now at $100; I think its price dropped due to the Droid X.
[QUOTE=BenJ;23739101]What would be the cheapest device with a keyboard?

I think a newer Droid 2 with a keyboard might be coming soon but on the cheap the original would be best.
[QUOTE=BenJ;23739101]What would be the cheapest device with a keyboard?

HTC's soft keyboard is actually easier to type on than a hard one when haptic feedback is enabled. You can just vaguely spam what you want to write and it gets it every time lols. I have a samsung galaxy lite/portal/spica running android 2.1 with a ricer kernel. Silky smooth, 2 days of constant use on a charge and only £110 without a contract lawl.

Droid X!
Got myself a Nexus One running Cyanogen 6 RC1 and it's easily the best phone I've had due to Android itself. Just waiting for android 3 to come out, the tech specs on some of the phones are incredible :D Any good android tablets coming out? Stuff magazine says there might be a Google tablet released in August. Otherwise I'll probs get a JooJoo
Android doesn't feel like a mobile OS to me. It feels like something that you'd see on touch pads or something. It feels to cluttered for a small phone screen.
I am planning on getting a HTC Desire ASAP is there anything amazingly wrong with the phone or a better phone for its price
Even though the X is out, (I don't know if the X is available yet in Europe) I'd still go for the desire.
Droid X has E-fuse, same clock on cpu, less ram, slightly larger res and near enough the same screen size. E-Fuse will be bypassed soon tho Oh and a better camera

Nice to see an Android thread, I just got my Samsung Captivate 3 days ago and I'm loving it! Could anyone suggest some apps to get?
currently updating my Hero to 2.1 because I just haven't gotten around to it yet
I never grew attached to the Android system. I've always preferred the iPhone OS. Maybe if I had be developing apps, I would have preferred Android. I just found a lack of applications that suited my needs.
