    OK, then the answer is no - I don't think Android is a fake iOS.

    Seeing as we only have eduroam I can't really help but at least eduroam works
    It doesn't, that's the problem. I still need to use the proxy script regardless of what connection I opt for.



    Anyone in this thread have a Galaxy Nexus?

    The Nexus S was also made by Samsung, and the Sense ROM was ported. I expect that if HTC update Sense for ICS that the same thing will happen with the Galaxy Nexus.
    Where is that?

    Just found out I can't play .avi on android devices

    I'm on the verge of switching back to WM but the only thing stopping me is android has more and better apps at non extortionate prices and it supports flash.

    MixZing. I'll try MX Video. Thanks

    Didn't work

    The video shows up but when I click on it, it prepares to be played and then skips onto the next video which isn't avi file format. Could the file size be an issue? It's 701mb and an hour and half long.

    AVI is a container format. More relevant is the codec that your video was encoded with.

    Having problems with my HTC Legend. Some of The apps on my homescreen hadn't come up fully so I removed them off my homescreen and went to put them back, but for some reason they'd disappeared off my phone. When I try and redownload the apps I get a error message saying 'Application cannot be installed in the default installation location' Anyone got any ideas?

    What you can play is dependent on the file formats your phone supports. The SGS and SII support pretty much everything. What phone do you have?

    Try MX Video Player and install the codecs it asks for.

    I love this Galaxy Nexus phone but specs wise would you not be better off with something like the SGSII or SGnote? Dunno if they'll be update to ICS though:confused:

    mvideoplayer only plays what is natively supported by the phone

    SII has been confirmed to be getting ICS and pretty soon I hope.

    Other than the camera's sensor resolution, the Nexus has the same or slightly better specs than the SGSII in almost every respect (especially the screen, which is perhaps the most important). Whether that's worth an extra £100 is a judgement call...
    I'm not sure about the Note (though it's incredibly smooth), but it's size is the deal-breaker on that for most people.

    As a result of: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...0#post19840090 I've kind of decided I'd need a 3G TP in order to justify it :/

    Can you possibly have a look at the link I posted above and see if you can see anything in settings that could help me?
