    Software which does what?
    Nothing really.

    Manufacturers often take a while to update to the most recent version of Android (my phone has been completely abandoned) so this allows users who wish to to install the newest updates before they would be available (or against the abandonment of the manufacturer).

    What phone were you thinking of getting?

    HTC Desire or Wildfire, maybe the HD7. I don't pay much attention to phone technology, or at least haven't, so I've had my current phone for ages. Time to upgrade though, and as I'm getting a contract I may as well get a decent phone and a free wii or w/e they want to give me :awesome:

    HD7 is WinMo.

    Out of those I'd get the Desire. The Wildfire just doesn't cut it.

    Out of the three the Desire (HD?) is best?

    Why?

    Thanks for helps. XD

    Depends.

    If you want a meaty screen the Desire HD is best.
    If you want a fast phone without the meaty screen then get the Desire.
    If you are on a budget get the Wildfire (or consider the San Francisco).

    I don't know what I want. Something not bulky and with a decent battery life that is fast at responding as texting on touch screens has always pissed me off.

    Wildfire lags terribly when texting (sometimes).
    Desire is smooth
    Desire HD would probably be too chunky for you and have too poor a battery.

    How's the Desire's battery?

    I am half tempted to keep my w890i and get a sim contract :mmm:

    At least I won't have to keep the same phone for two years

    I don't know for sure, since I've never owned one. But considering the Desire HD can survive a day of conservative use then the Desire will be better.

    What about if I was running labour intensive apps on it? Some games and a liberal amount of wifi use?

    That sounds reasonable. There is one the Desire Z. What's the deal with that one.

    It's got a keyboard... It's good, apparently.

    The Desire's battery life isn't brilliant, just adding that one in. It's to be expected though and obviously depends on usage.
