    Doesn't seem so.

    It comes free on HTC phones I think.

    The basic version (view, can't edit) came stock on my moto.


    In other news, it just kicked out a Quadrant of 1310, whilst on 2.1, can't wait to see this badboy on 2.2 :woo:

    Hey guys,

    I'm after an android phone atm (because my crapberry is bricked/dead). Just wondering what anyone would suggest? I'm going to uni for 5 years so I'm gonna be skint after this summer so hoping for something that's got decent internet speed and will be reliable i.e won't die on me after a year (like my crapberry) and has a decent battery life and has good specs overall giving it a bit of futureproof-ness (definitely not a word )? I don't mind shelling out a couple-few hundred as long as it's a sound investment...

    (Checked out the review sites already but just after some personal experiences...?)

    Nothing is future proof. By 2014, mobiles will be 75 times more powerful than they are now...

    Desire / Desire HD would be a good shout in a month or two when then next Desires are released.

    Edit:

    On another matter, Cronos GB with ondemand governor is very, very nice.

    Indeed it is. I can be done in SetCPU, but I've been doing it in;

    Settings > CM Extra > Performance > CPU Settings > Governors

    I found the Cronos one wasn't too hot (which I think Feeyo fwill fix with a kernel update, but I seldom bother with the mods). There's a performance one there too!

    Never tried on demand tbh...battery life on my SGS is pretty decent atm so it probably won't hurt :p:

    On the Cronos forums there is a SGS section but nothing in there yet. Maybe they'll port it to my phone like Cyangenmod but have to wait and see....

    I think the more you shell out now the longer a phone will last but you are looking at some seriously highend stuff like Moto Atrix or Samsung Galaxy S II

    That would be good but after engadget's review, I'm waiting on the Atrix
