Which one to get? Moto D2, Moto X or HTC Inc? Are there some other options that I should also be looking at.

I'd go for the Droid X, but the Incredible is really nice. I just like the bigger screen. Waiting for the Galaxy S is also an option.

I do, but this building kills my reception down to "G" so the download would take forever. No open wifi signals around me and I don't have my cable to plug it into this pc here.

Why did you just get a G1?
Ive had the G1 since June of last year,been running CM since I got back from my deployment in May. Though, if the G2 comes out anytime soon it looks like Ill be modding that one too. I hate getting any of these new ones since I love my G1 so much, the keyboard is what keeps me from switching, Ive heard bad things about the Mytouch Slide, from what Ive heard and seen about the new G phone coming out, it seems like an acceptable replacement. If it doesnt have a Physical keyboard I wont get it

Can you confirm if ADHOC works now? That's what I really want. Then when I put CM6 on my tablet I can have my G1 in my pocket running Barnacle and be browsing the web on the tablet through the phone's connection.
I feel that its faster, but then again, when I switched I redownloaded everything due to the new way it handles SD card Apps. I dont have anything to test with AdHoc at the moment. My laptop stopped working on my way back from Mildenhall. If I get a hold of a friends laptop Ill test it out, but so far its worth the tradeup from 5.0.8. What I would do is a Nandroid back up and if you dont end up liking 6.0.0 you can always switch back

Anyone on 2.2 care to comment on this:

Quote:
Flash On Android Is 'Shockingly Bad'

"Ryan Lawler writes on GigaOm that although many have touted the availability of Flash on Android devices as a competitive advantage over Apple's mobile devices, while trying to watch videos from ABC.com, Fox.com and Metacafe using Flash 10.1 on a Nexus One over a local Wi-Fi network connected to a 25-Mbps Verizon FiOS broadband connection, mobile expert Kevin Tofel found that videos were slow to load, if they loaded at all, leading to an overall very inconsistent experience while using his Android device for video. 'While in theory Flash video might be a competitive advantage for Android users, in practice it's difficult to imagine anyone actually trying to watch non-optimized web video on an Android handset,' writes Lawler. 'All of which makes one believe that maybe Steve Jobs was right to eschew Flash in lieu of HTML5 on the iPhone and iPad.'"

I for one watched the second half of the patriots game last night on my tablet through a justin.tv flash video feed using 2.1 and Skyfire, and aside from it buffering a couple times it was great. I also watched a bunch of Engadget videos. I would think that native Flash would be superior to Skyfire...

Btw if anybody cares I'm still not regretting buying this tablet.

It gives me half the capabilities of a netbook, at half the size, for half the price. Fair deal.

Flash worked great for me when I used it. It is slow to load youtube videos in forums, but it works if you are any bit patient. It is hard to press the play button sometimes. That 'mobile expert' can .

The browser in 2.2 actually embeds the youtube vids in threads?

I figured it would make you click a link to get to them.

Regardless, I'm really happy with the lastest Skyfire release (2.3.3 iirc). Most videos play just fine and quickly enough.

Maybe on crappy slow phones, but I haven't had any of those issues on my Nexus One. I've been using Flash before it was publicly released.

Methinks it's user error. Flash 10.1 is an order of magnitude better than Skyfire's implementation.

Anybody here ever root/swap ROMs on a Samsung Moment?

A buddy of mine does work for NASCAR and therefore was given a free promotional Sprint Samsung Moment phone along with a year of service. I told him I'd root it for him and set it up for tethering, etc.

I'm probably going to load this 2.1 ROM on it:
http://www.sdx-developers.com/sdx/ca...-2-1-dd10-rom/

Anybody have any experience with it?

Anyone using the app TiKL? It's a push to talk app that uses data instead of minutes. Which I think would only be helpful if you were somewhere with wifi and no reception. At any rate, it's pretty amusing, if someone else has it installed you can beep them and start talking without them having to answer or anything.

It's pretty rough, and could use alot of features, but it's a neat idea.

edit: it's free in the market.

Question: I'm eligible to buy a new phone at discounted price w/ 2yr contract at with my current AT&T contract until Dec, unless I want to pay an early upgrade fee. Are there any potentially fantastic amazing Android OS phones coming out around then or anytime between now and then? My phone is crap and the battery is on it's last legs. I'm wondering if I should just buy a battery and limp it along for a few more months or just pay the $75 early upgrade fee and get a Galaxy S or something along those lines. I really don't want to deal with this phone anymore. (LG Vu)

Just happened to see this:

MIT app turns your Android phone into a supercomputer... of sorts
Quote:
Oh, sure -- a few people have called Google's Nexus One a "superphone," but suddenly, that nickname has taken on a whole new level of meaning. A team of talent from MIT has put its head down in order to concoct a new Android application that can come darn close to solving complex computational problems in just a fraction of the time that it'd take a bona fide supercomputer. The goal here is to let researchers and scientists convert to Google's mobile OS, but if you aren't falling for that one, it's also designed to "let engineers perform complicated calculations in the field, and to better control systems for vehicles or robotic systems." Of course, the models that are hosted on the phone do require a supercomputer to create, but once certain formulas are embedded, the app can then compute approximations in mere seconds rather than hours. Best of all, rbAPPmit is available for download as well speak in the source link below, but we'd probably wait for the (presumably thick) user guide to surface before diving in headfirst.

It's hard to say. The rate of development of Android devices is mind bottling. I don't think you can go wrong with the Galaxy S though. Unless something better comes out, it is probably what I'll be buying.

I left out important informations... we wants WiFi tethering, aka mobile hotspot. For that you need root + barnacle, or root + custom ROM, amirite?

My contract is almost up, so pick a phone/provider for me. Criteria:

Phone requirements: I want a decently snappy Android phone with a GOOD physical keyboard. I know you touchscreen fanbois will mock me for this, but I have my reasons.

Service: My current provider is AT&T, and my phone service has been okay here, but my customer service has been teh suckage. On top of that they screw up on my bill every other month and then give me the runaround on getting it straightened out.

I've had a friend's Spring Samsung Moment in my possession for the last 1.5 weeks and the phone reception seems pretty much identical around here to my phone on AT&T. Sprint promises me 4G coverage here by the middle of next year sooooo...

T-Mobile coverage here is HORRIBLE, so please don't suggest them. I tried them and I got zero bars in my house, and 1 bar at the end of my driveway.

Do I get a Moment or Epic and go with Sprint? Droid2 on VZW? Or does AT&T have something coming soon that is worth waiting and sticking with them for?

Also, does the Droid2 have a good keyboard? I absolutely hated the one on the original Droid, but love the one on my G1. The one on the Moment is pretty good too.
