    Oh yeah, so it does. I just tried it out. You have to select a point on the map and then select street view from the options listed. You can't just drag the yellow man like on the desktop version

    not really the point though. more a point of customer satisfaction, when you give a release date you tend to make it. Fair enough they need to do more testing and what not for the sense (as i've read) but then why not give a longer release date?

    Swype works for all Android phones and its free on their website!

    Also, the Sense keybaord should be possible to get hold of too.

    Beautiful widgets does.
    Initially it won't (HTC told them not to have it like that) but you can download similar themes for it.

    TV on your Android (or other device tbh, but it works on Android, so I'm posting here)

    I've had a quick go with it, but I'm at work so can't test fully. Seems OK over H though.

    Hi guys,

    So i am seriously debating between iphone and android devices and i've got a few q's.

    - Android says that they have about 20,000 + apps, i can only see a handful here : http://www.android.com/market/paid.html
    where are the rest?!

    -Games : How good are they on android in comparison to apple ones?


    Thanks!

    Not all apps are paid for. Some of those numbers include games.

    Games are getting better tbh. We're getting loads of 3D games that all look pretty good now. This thread has a video of a few of them.

    Interesting! So what is this open source thing about the android market? Surely if you want to make an iphone application, you can do so, cant you?

    "An Application may not itself install or launch other executable code by any means, including without limitation through the use of a plug-in architecture, calling other frameworks, other APIs or otherwise," reads the terms and conditions attached to Apple's iPhone SDK. "No interpreted code may be downloaded and used in an Application except for code that is interpreted and run by Apple’s Published APIs and built in interpreter(s)."

    Basically, with iPhone, unless it works they way Apple tell you to, you can't write it. This does not exist on Android phones.

    Edit: It means that the iPhone, as it stands, will never have Firefox or Flash Player for example.
