Why I wont be buying another android handset…

Why I wont be buying another android handset… direct from the manufacturer again. With Google selling handsets which always carry the cutting edge of android tech and receive OTA updates, being stuck with a manufacturers vision of android ala sense or motoblur while the main platform moves on is just plain unappealing. As a Hero owner it’s happened once already that we missed a platform update, and as Froyo is being frosted as we wait for HTC to bring us Eclair we’re going to be a build behind again.

Brian Swetland, Android’s Kernel guru mentioned that Gingerbread has been chosen as the name for the build following Froyo, meaning work for it is being planned, I can see Hero owners being left behind again, as will Legend etc owners, so sorry HTC as nice as sense is, I’d rather be rocking the latest build of Android than have a few nice widgets that others have copied and improved on.

quick rant

Why the **** ****etty **** **** **** does the Hero insist on losing it’s Scenes on swapping of SIMS??? I understand it dropping back to default incase it was a different user but it should still have the user defined ones available FU HTC.

The problem with Text Messaging on the Hero

So it’s time to air a grievance I have with the HTC Hero, one that has bugged me since I have had the handset, it doesn’t time stamp a text message after a few hours, for someone who needs to know when a message came through it’s a complete nightmare, especially after the care that HTC have lavished on the call history as shown in the images below :-
