    Not quite sure what they are (faster? like in computer processors?), but sounds good. Life would be so much easier if Nokia just went with Android
    Dual core is what the up and coming top-enders have. It's the best way to futureproof yourself.

    Yeah, Symbian is just depressing now. My mum got some kind of Bejeweled-like game on her phone because I had Jewels on mine, and I nearly cried.

    She had to uninstall it about a day later because it made everything crash

    What's the talk about 4G phones then? Like I saw on HTC thunderbolt or something. Is that just in America?

    Why does nokia insist on going with it? I've experienced apps making my phone crash too :mad:

    You can only have 4G phones where there are 4G networks.

    Unfortunately we do not have such networks in the UK, yet.

    I don't know really. What phone do you have? Does it use Symbian S60 or Symbian^3?

    I'm not entirely sure why they're bothering with Symbian^3 lol, but I guess it's good to have some variety :dontknow:

    It would be very tragic if Nokia went with Android. It's all well and that lots of people adopt the OS but too many is also bad, it makes them dependant on the OS. Android should really only be used by manufacturers which by themselves offer atrocious OS's ie. Samsung, Motorola etc... Nokia still have a decent OS.

    Question :ahee:

    If I make system/app R/W, can I move apps I've got from the market to there and they'll update normally (overwrite rather than a new apk)?

    Does this mean the Desire HD could do the same?

    I don't think you can tbh. Give it a go though!

    I'm liking the HD2 - everyone seems to want it to live forever. I'd get one if I honestly had enough cash to do so on a whim.

    Okay, I'll see if there's anything that wants to be updated right now

    Are they still really expensive?

    I wonder if I could get Orange to send me one :mmm:

    edit: Nothing needs updating right now; I'll wait a while. I just realised I'd have to make the whole of /system/ R/W, wouldn't I? :erm:

    £200 on fleabay. I'd be amazed if Orange still stock them tbh!

    And yeah, I'd think so. You can get away with it I reckon so long as you're very careful with what you put on there.... I wouldn't risk it though!

    I find that 90% of the things I try do with my Hero aren't and probably never will be necessary.

    :ditto:

    Is the browser/text lag a problem with phones other than the Hero?

    That's the only thing that irritates me about this phone. :shifty:

    Yeah, it's a Hero thing that one. Best thing I found is to turn off all haptic feedback and any flashy keyboard animations and live with it.

    Still, not long til I can* upgrade.

    *Whether I will is another thing entirely. Now that Honeycomb has been confirmed to have hardware acceleration in it's UI and will eventually come to phones, yet again I've found another reason to just hang on a little longer...

    God damn it.

    It's a problem on the SF too. If you are typing on a page in the browser, the texts lags a LOT. Pinch zoom is also little laggy (but not if you have one of the good custom ROMs).
    I don't expect you'll get any issues with higher end Android phones though, although they all have that signature jerkiness on the browser lol Be proud google, can't even iron out this fault(!)
