    Been using Dolphin HD for the past 2 days and I'm very impressed, love the gestures and generally it's smoother than the Android one.

    Worth me switching over to Mini?

    Why would you come in just to post that?

    Last time I checked there wasn't any movement to have these games ported over in any way. I can assure you I haven't lost any sleep whatsoever over not having these two games.

    I was under the impression that Gameboid could run older Gameboy games? If it does she's better to just have the one app instead of the two.
    I Googled one time, and apparently GBCoid uses something different from Gameboid, so Gameboid can only play GBA games and GBCoid can play GBC and GB games :proud:


    This one time, I tried going up to 710 MHz lol, but things seemed to run more smoothly at 691

    My keyboard seems a bit more laggy though (I've got CF 1.7.3 atm)

    The OP said he wanted to ***** about the iPhone so I felt like *****ing about the Android, albeit more indirectly.

    This is exactly what I said when my friend suggested I download Dolphin HD, lol I've said this whenever anyone has ever told me to replace my default with X app, pretty much every time the market app is much better. I would at least give it a go, nothing to loose right :dontknow:

    Do you think the Desire will ever be ~£130?

    It's a feature that improves efficiency when browsing. Say for instance I want to go to my bookmarks instead of exiting my full screen mode, the going settings and then bookmarks (or whatever process it usually is). All I do is press the gesture button on my screen then with an imaginary pen I write a symbol and it will take me to bookmarks.

    This can be enhanced even more. e.g. I visit engadet often so I have a gesture for it, I press the button then do an EN symbol and it will take me to the site straight away. You can configure any action in the browser to a gesture e.g. with one press of a button I can be on any preconfigured website, access any part of my settings and menu and even switch tab.

    It means I never have to come out of Full screen mode.

    New - Not for at least 18 months time if even that
    Used - Maybe sometime next December I guess. It's been such a popular phone.

    Thinking of getting a new phone?

    Erm... I'm just anticipating my Hero becoming wholly obsolete sooner or later. I think I'd prefer the Desire to the Desire HD, and I can wait for more than a year until it's a price I'm comfortable with

    How weird that HTC desire costs slightly more than samsung galaxy s, when the samsung is slightly better.

    If all goes well I'll have my S i9000 is 36 hours.


    You guys are gonna have to reccommend me a load of apps n what not.

    Edit: oh wait, I think I was looking at desire hd, they look so alike to me.

    Oh right I see. Some of the functions are probably just quicker pressing the button on the touch screen but I can see how it can be quite handy.

    Is there an option of importing bookmarks onto it?

    And if you know, what's the difference between the Dolphin Mini and Dolphin HD?

    When I installed it it just had all my bookmarks already in the browser so I'm assuming it does it automatically. I have no idea what the difference is but I imagine the mini version is very light weight so won't have all the features of the HD version. I've heard it's very fast though.
