Yep i saw it last week and also read about it on an android forum where people had managed to already hack the phone, I think this is why it got hot.

Seems like a good buy for the specs and the posssiblilty of hacking it further for a sub £100price. I was going to get one untill I changed my mind and bought the 90p nokia from the link on this forum :) untill I decide which smrtphone to get. Maybe a desire or a galaxy

I did fancy getting a desire, but then htc decided to launch desire hd and z versions, so i thought, well lets try android os first, and see how it works, and there is always another day of an expensive handset.


thanks for your reply, cheers

Well from what I have read last week you will not be disapointed for the price if you just want to see what android is like and if i remeber right it also has android 2.1 on it too :)

ordered cos was curious about how the android os compares to the iphone, and for the money its pretty good. Unlocked, Rooted and reflashed the SF and its a pretty good device, a little sluggish at times but i really do like the customisability of android over iOS. Don't get me know the iPhone still a good phone and really quick and snappy, but andoid seems like the next level.

i def would say its a good entry level toy for experiencing android at a very cheap price

does get a bit slow, but i suppose doesnt happen in the htc desire

that was - sense live wall paper
and downloaded the fancy widget 1.3

and you need the launcher pro to get those buttons on the bottom
