What do people think of the Motorola Backflip? I want to get a droid but I'm stuck with AT&T. I already know about the no third party apps installing and the yahoo search but there are a few workarounds to that.
I'm looking to get a new phone, currently on a caveman flipphone. Anyone know the differences between the Droid X and the Droid Incredible, / which is better? Aside from being from different manufacturers, of course.

Aside from being from different manufacturers, of course.[/QUOTE] The X is bigger, and has a HDMI output. The incredible is basically just a bit slower and a smaller screen
X also has a 16:9 aspect ratio which is better for pretty much everything. better for movies and 16:9 media (see: everything), better for web browsing (it's either wider or taller depending on the orientation), and navigating menus is better (taller means more can be seen). Incredible is on snapdragon which is quite overrated, the OMAP the droid x uses is very zippy and the most powerful for computations right now. the difference between it and the Galaxy S series, if you were wondering, is the Galaxy S series is exceedingly more powerful with graphics than the Droid X, and the Droid X is more powerful with calculations and CPU related shit
If it's not against the rules to ask, does anyone have an apk of Swype for 480x320 devices? I'm running Android on my iPod and I'd rather use Swype than the Android keyboard. If not, can anyone recommend any decent keyboard replacements that work on 1.6?
Similarly, could anyone please go to the Market, download twicca (if you don't already have it) and backup and upload its .apk? It's a free app, and I have access to the Market, but for some reason I can only download a bogus (current version + 1) version that doesn't start, doesn't have a logo and isn't listed anywhere on the internet.

Evo is a great device but it's highly overrated.
well right now the two greatest android phones (of those that are well known and/or carried by popular carriers) in the US are really just the Droid X and the Evo. and really i asked some woman who was talking on a Droid X what she thought and she was like "IT DOES EVERYTHING IT'S GREAT" and at the time i sort of wanted one and was all excited and asked "cool cool like what amazes you about it?" "I CAN BROWSE THE WEB" i guess, because of the advertising campaign, the basic features the phone comes with account toward "everything". anyway my point is a phone is only as popular and successful as its marketing. both the Evo and the Droid X have some serious ego stroking marketing.
[QUOTE=M_B;23754215]well right now the two greatest android phones (of those that are well known and/or carried by popular carriers) in the US are really just the Droid X and the Evo.[/QUOTE] What about the Nexus One and the Galaxy S series? They are both great too and have costum ROMs unlike the Droid X.
[B](of those that are well known and/or carried by popular carriers)[/B] Galaxy S hardly has any coverage, AT&T is too busy pushing iPhones to give a shit about other phones, and T-Mobile just has too many smartphones for it to really matter. Nexus One has never really been mentioned anywhere outside of tech blogs or tech sites. and again T-Mobile has too many smartphones as it is for them to have an advertisement saying "HEY LOOK WE HAVE ANOTHER SMARTPHONE" and have the public really care about it [editline]01:17AM[/editline] also the nexus one is pretty much unbuyable right now, isn't it? Google ran out, isn't going to order more, and supposedly T-Mobile is the only carrier you can buy it from now and I don't even see it on the website [editline]01:24AM[/editline] the thing with Galaxy S: it'll gain more momentum when Sprint gets theirs out. the reason being they're going to advertise the living shit out of it. Verizon isn't going to because it's not part of their stupid elite Droid series. you know, the Droid "series", the reason average Joes all think the Eris and Incredible are at all related to the Droid. doesn't mean anything other than the manufacturer came to them and was like "hey yeah i got this great ass phone advertise the shit out of it have a dick load of money and pay me later" see unless Samsung at the last minute is like "wait a minute hey verizon slap Droid on the name here's a bunch of dough thanks", Verizon is still going to keep their advertising focused on the Droid X. with T-Mobile, they have too many android phones as it is for it to really make any difference as in a week or two they'll be advertising another, and the advertisement would be small anyway, mentioning "Samsung Vibrant" at the very end of an ad, for example. with AT&T, as mentioned, the iPhone is really their top priority. it's what pulls in the money. every other phone from AT&T for the last 2-3 years has had pretty lame advertising compared to the ads from both them and Apple for the iPhone. [editline]01:25AM[/editline] does any of that make sense?
[QUOTE=M_B;23754311]does any of that make sense?[/QUOTE] Makes perfect sense. Though, you're wrong about T-Mobile. I've been seeing dedicated commercials from T-Mobile for the Fascinate. Obviously nothing from AT&T though.

Easier to do this when everyone can edit.[/QUOTE] Get this shit on the OP. We did a fuckton of phones.
I'm on a boat right now I'll do it later. [editline]09:46AM[/editline] Oh wow, ajax quick reply works on my droid.
Froyo for the desire is comming after this weekend in the Netherlands.
Already out in UK :smug: Now I just need the phone :sigh:
I'm still waiting for Rogers to push the update for my HTC Magic so I can at least get 2.1. At first it was early summer, I think now they expect some time in August...
[QUOTE=compwhizii;23748569]Posting them will be nice.[/QUOTE] You could take a look here: [url]http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Android_devices[/url]
Very nice thread OP, I hope they get Froyo working on HD2 smoothly, will it be possible for it to make calls? I have yet to find a flawless WM 6.5 ROM, at least something that doesn't glitch out rarely.
[QUOTE=jlj1;23740983]I am planning on getting a HTC Desire ASAP is there anything amazingly wrong with the phone or a better phone for its price[/QUOTE] I've got a Desire and it's a wonderful and powerful device. The only downsides are [list] [*]Design: It's not looking really cool in my opinion. But you can add shells and covers to it to make it look a bit better [*]Physical Buttons: You may say that physical buttons are cool (they are!), but they wear off! I've got my phone now about 2.5 Months and I got problems with the back-button being unresponsive sometimes. [/list] Anyway, the Desire is cool and once FroYo is out (announced for this weekend) I'll make it faster with FroYo (JIT-Compiler FTW! Up to 500% Performance Boost)
Froyo on Desire now :v:
I would like to point out in OP, the Hero is actually the G2 touch, as the G2 only used a stylus. [editline]05:09PM[/editline] Also I need to root my New g1 I'm just scared.

I would rather have an android phone, but with all the apps I've gotten since my Ipod touch, I'm stuck with Iphone. I don't want to pay for an ipod touch either. I do love the Android OS, and might get the Archos 7 eventually.

When does HTC deliver the new superlcds for the desire
