    Whats this motorola and google doing a deal all about?
    Can I have a noobified version please.
    Google bought Motorola largely because of various ongoing patent discussions and battles. This way it gets full access of Motorola's patent portfolio to advance Android, and it also gives Android a dedicated hardware manufacturer.
    It could prove interesting to Android as a whole though because Motorola may get preferential treatment over other makers like HTC and Samsung, which may end up pushing them over to WP7 because Nokia have expressly stated that any software changes they implement will be available to all hardware makers. That's all "possibly maybe" wait and see though.

    Essentially what it boils down to is Apple make iOS hardware, Nokia make WP7 hardware, Motorola make Android hardware, and HTC, Samsung and LG make whatever they want to make because, aside from Samsung's Bada, they're not software companies.

    It's surprisingly good: with moderate to heavy usage it still lasts a day (24 hours) - I charge it every night so the battery life has not yet been a problem.

    Iccc. I actually flashed it today and tbh it looks quite good actually. The thing i love the most about it is the htc sense thing which allows you to remotely findout where ur phone is, wipe da data etc etc.


    However the only thing is in the notification bar, i see loads of random things on top (they are most probably the apps that r running in the background). Is there any way of getting rid of that (so it shows notifications only!)? Also most importantly the thing takes more than 5 minutes to boot (literally!). Is that normal or have i done something wrong here mate?

    There is a mods and add-ons thread for the ROM that has a link to one which modifies the notification pulldown. As for the boot-up, yes it does take ages. But it's very good once it's loaded. If you haven't already, you probably want to install SetCPU and set it (initially) to 'smartass' - this will dynamically adjust your CPU speed to trade-off between battery life and performance.

    I haven't actively avoided so, but I haven't come across a paid add that I actually want - so far they've all been free anyway.

    I added a few videos to my Sensation, they are in the .avi format and are over 100mb each and I play them using the MX video player from the market. The pictures lag badly and doesn't keep up with the sound, is there any way to get around this?
