    I really wish Motorola would sort out the Xoom, it was quite obviously rushed out. Hopefully there will be an update by summer fixing the bugs, oh and flash.
    And the Micro SD slot too...it was rushed, no questions about that.

    Unlimited texts ? BBM (well it sorted does but you know...it's only for Blackberries) :p: I've got a lot friends who use BBM so I might be tempted into getting it...they're too cheap to get WhatsApp

    We need some more 7" tabs. I don't like the 9/10" ones they are too big for one handed use. I think only HTC are releasing one? I'm surprised Samsung Galaxy Tab isn't getting a new 7" only the bigger sized one. Plus 7" screens would make a nice sat nav. You could probably have your phone and the map on one screen :awesome:

    Dixons are taking preorders for the Xoom for £435 with a discount code. :K:

    Tempting tbh...I can sell my Kindle for about £90 and get this for just over £300 if Quidco pay up...:sexface:

    Question: I seem to have to press the power on button everytime the screen locks itself, can I not just tap the screen instead?

    As for rooting, what do you folk recommend I should put on my phone?

    Yeah, that's about right.

    How do you mean? What apps? What bootloader? Custom ROM? (I can't remember what phone you have)

    Man, really didn't think it could get this complicated.

    - Where do I get apps?
    - What difference does a bootloader have?
    - Custome ROM? Is this the firmware stuff? Yeah I guess, though how does Android 2.2 differe to any other ROMs?

    HTC Legend.

    I'd stick to the market for apps. Some require ROOT access (Such as Shoot Me, a screen grabbing app).

    The bootloader controls what happens at boot. A custom bootloader will allow you to flash custom ROMs.

    A custom ROM is the OS itself. Some phones have custom ROMs taking them to newer versions of Android (ie Hero has them from 1.6 - 2.3.3). Others allow for greater overclocking or even just the removal of operator bloatware.

    Honestly, I'd take a loo over at XDA forums to see what you want/need/can get.

    It would mean you're phone will have to stay on, it can't sleep which means you'll end up wasting battery when you're not even using it. It also stops you from accidentally putting the screen on, say if you reach into your pocket you could end up calling someone. You'll get used to it though.

    You're using an older version of Sense so I'm not sure if it will be the same. But in the people app if you go menu, then it should show a menu option called 'view' and from there you should be able to highlight what conatacts the phone uses.

    I assume it must have transferred your sim contacts to your phone somehow.
