Isn't that phone specifically designed for online social butterflies? You know, like having everything you need right off the bat to visit Facebook/Myspace/Twitter/etc?

I currently have a Droid 2 right now. It's a pretty bad ass phone.

My favorite android apps would have to be...

- Akinator

- aTilt 3D Labyrinth

- Barcode Scanner

- Tesla LED (Uses the camera flash as a flashlight)

- Xpiano

You really get hooked onto the app marketplace fast.

Were you able to update past Android 1.6 by rooting or is the hardware the limit?

You have AT&T, don't you? They have the Samsung Captivate, a Galaxy S phone., that runs of Android and a customized Samsung UI. I don't like the Galaxy S just because of that.

Found this interesting article where some guy who tried hacking his Droid X ended up having to resort to drastic measures to get it working again. The guy talks about it like it's really a huge overall problem for Android, but I think he seems to have forgotten that the Droid X has an internal design that makes it very difficult to get root access on.

Benchmark tests of the T-Mobile G2.

The results are very impressive, better than the Nexus One's 1GHz processor.

I've been wanting an Android phone for a while so I can get off of this shitty AT&T service without having to jailbreak and unlock my dad's iPhone as well. However, before I switch, does anyone know if there is an app similar to MyWi? (For those who are curious, click here and scroll down.)

Maybe this will help.

Just be careful if you're actually get an android phone and you want to root it.

Bumping because tonight I successfully rooted my EVO.

Now the only problem is to be able to do something with it. Custom ROMs are out of the question right now since CyanogenMod can't do 4G or HDMI out, so that was out of the window. I got Metamorph and tried to test it by installing a new battery icon, but it didn't work. Maybe there's something I overlooked.

My parents are letting me get a new phone, and I've narrowed my selection to 3 phones. One of them's a Blackberry, the other two are Android phones: Droid Incredible and Samsung Fascinate. Right now I'm focusing on the Droids.

I know one guy at my school who has an Incredible and another guy who has a Fascinate. Both of them say their respective phones are good, but I'm having alot of trouble deciding which one I want. Any suggestions fellas?

(My carrier is Verizon if you don't know.)
