When you say there's no app store what do you mean Mark? Does that one not have the Marketplace?

I updated my Touch HD to run the latest version of Windows Mobile 6.5, and it now has the Windows Marketplace in the start menu. Anyone else here with an HTC from earlier in the year should do the same! google xda developers.

It's also for sale: http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=220498450471&ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT

I also have the magic, ace phone.

So many apps for it and nearly all are free, battery is good, camera isnt bad, screen very easy to use.

The recent software update has improved it loads.

I wouldn't say the battery was good tho tbh, have to charge mine every night. Gets a lot of use tho and wifi, gps etc is on all day every day. No big deal tho tbh.

Takes some getting used to, especially if like me your used to Nokia and Sony Ericsson etc.. phones.

It all makes sense now though, more phones should use the Android OS, excellent software imo.

I was sceptical about the touch screen keypad at first, but it absolutely pisses over standard phones now I'm used to it. Seriously, the amount of apps available is unreal. It appears there's not a lot it can't do.

Cool little things too, like say I'm going somewhere, type the name in on the google search bar, it'll come up on google with the place in a second, then just click "get direction to from current location" and it'll navigate you there, etc. TV guide, little desktop post-it notes, everything is just ace The games are pretty cool too if you're into them. Best of all for me tho, the internet looks just how it would on a PC and fits on the screen perfectly. It used to be a real chore coming on CS on my C902.
