I've got a HTC Desire, tis grand like. Just use it for browsing, email, some clever travel apps, podcasts and poker (Live Hold Em, class).

Can someone tell me some other cool stuff I can do with it? I'm clueless.

Yes well afaik they are not going to give the new one a number (4) its just going to be called symbian os from now...

What about porting apps ? is it possible ? there is a particular iphone app I need for work (a calculator) that isn't available on android or symbian,
its a pain in the hole.

Tbh, I was happy with just making calls and texts....

I walked into the apple shop on opera lane last week thinking it was just a phone shop looking for a protective case for my N8 & a gentleman named Pawdrick argued that because my phone is cheaper than the iphone4 then it can't be as good even though the iphone4 has 5 & the Nokia N8 has a 12 megapixel camera, I can connect a high definition television to mine, iphones can't do that & to be honest I've never used an iphone but there was nothing I could see it has that mine has not.

Except a much higher price tag & anyway itunes is stupid!

Just because his bollox has more pubic hairs doesn't mean his langer's longer like!

Im sick of anything with an i infront of it being deemed better than a counterpart. I worked for apple once, great products, but so are most high end products. All they got on others is itunes really when it comes to the ipod range. i think the ipad is pointless. iphone users annoy me when they say they can put thousands of songs on their phone, yeah you can do that with any phone, just get a decent sized memory card. In my experience, people with iphones have very little knowledge of techie stuff
total bollocks.

Apple products are very, very good.

I've used all different phones, I used to work in technology so I know my shit. The iphone just works in an intuitive way for me. Other phones are either an imitation of it, which is a bit pointless unless you want a cheap scabby version of an iphone thats not quite as good, or are technically better than it but not as pleasant to work with.

I have a blackberry through work and I appreciate it for work but its nowhere near as pleasant to use in personal life as the iphone.

You can squeal all you like about it and get on your techie high horse, but you dont get a product as successful as the iphone without it ticking a lot of good boxes.

What I hate is what bitches the competition are to Apple. Apple release an iphone, QUICK everyone release a touch screen phone that looks like a borderline patent infringer on the iphone, only not quite as good. Ditto the ipad. Its sad that there is such a lack of innovation from the rest that they dont try and do something truly different to apple as well as just adding a few technical superiorities over iphone. People wont switch from apple for minor shit like that.
