just rooted my Droid and installed a custom ROM from Sholes. It's got the 2.1 launcher and a few of its widgets, and it increases the chip speed to 600Mhz. So far me likely.

The Work Email app isn't native, its just another app that just so happens to be included in the default bundle. It can be removed without any issues. Im using touchdown and so far its been complying with policies that we have set. Those are just pin and timeout requirements. It won't ever be able to fully support all of the policies that winmo does, iphone can't either.

I've heard clocking it to 600mhz kills the battery super quick and turns it into a spaceheater... let us know how that turns out.

from what I've read, neither of those things actually happen. I have the SetCPU app from the marketplace and it will tone it down when it doesn't need to really crunch anything. Since it was just done an hour ago, it'll be a while before I have an idea.

Thinnest Android phone with a slider keyboard:

http://www.engadget.com/2010/01/09/i...en-probably-e/

The Inbrics M1 is a slider handset with a (great) 3.7-inch WVGA AMOLED display, 3 megapixel camera, front-facing VGA camera, 16GB of built-in storage, microSD slot and all the other usual trimmings, but what's particularly stunning is that the phone is not only half an inch thick, but it has a full QWERTY keyboard that's surprisingly clicky and typable. The phone is running Android 1.5 right now, but it should be up to Android 2.0 by the time it hits the market in March. The biggest concern is the 800MHz Samsung processor, the same chip that's in the Samsung Moment, but the interface (as demonstrated in the video after the break) is smooth as butter, and they demo'd it playing back 720p video just fine.


I'd post pics but apparently imageshack is borked. Sweet looking phone though.

sadly I couldn't keep that ROM installed for very long because the phone was locking up way too regularly just browsing through the launcher screen and whatnot. So now I just sit back and wait for 2.1

I picked up a new-in-box G1 off CL for $100 and got it unlocked for at&t ($16).

Digging it so far...


Anybody figure out how to search forums using tapatalk? If I could do that it would be a very useful tool.

Anybody try WiSyncPlus yet?

http://www.gearsoft.mobi/products/product/3

I dropped $3.75 for it in the App Market. It brings a feature to android that I missed (coming from a WinMo phone), and that is scheduling when you want to sync your calendar/mail/contacts with Google. Doing this can drastically improve battery life.

I've got it set to:
-sync my stuff every 30 minutes, only between the hours of 8am-6pm
-turn off my data connection when my screen is off
-turn on my wifi and autosync whenever i plug it in to charge

It also has buttons to easily enable/disable things manually. Pretty slick little app, and I'm betting it'll double my battery life.

Features
WiSyncPlus's unique combination of features is designed to provide incredible synchronization control while drastically extending the life of your phone's battery. WiSyncPlus does so without getting in your way. How can it do this?

* Make and receive calls without issue. WiSyncPlus does not interfere with normal, voice operations.
* SMS texting works without issue. Sending or receiving SMS text messages is not a problem - so long as you can see signal bars on your phone.
* Prevents all Internet communication until you allow it. It even stops Google's core services from constantly networking in the background!
* Force synchronize your phone when you're ready rather than wait for Google's "tickle".
* Schedule periods when you want your phone to allow Internet communication.
o Set how long and the frequency of each event in a 24-hour period, 7-days a week. Allows for easy creation of both weekday and weekend schedules.
o Multiple events can be scheduled per day.
o Automatically enable/disable your data connections (WIFI/Cellular) when you want to allow network communications.
o Force a synchronization on your schedule rather than wait for Google to initiate.
* Optional advisers notify you of ways to save battery life based on your current operating environment. This is just another way WiSyncPlus can save more power than any other application available for Android.
* Automatically enable your cellular and WIFI connections when you turn your display on. Save battery when you don't require Internet access. These features means your connection is available when you want it.
* Enable cellular connection and/or WIFI connection, and synchronization when you start charging.
* Disable cellular connection, WIFI connection, and synchronization when you finish (disconnect) charging.
* Turn off cellular connection, WIFI, and event event scheduling when your battery becomes critically low.
* Optional Roaming Protection automatically disables your APNs as soon as your phone begins to roam.
* Optionally prevents enabling your APN when your phone is roaming to ensure you don't get dinged with data roaming charges. It even prevents scheduled events from enabling your APN when roaming. This is just one way WiSyncPlus can save you money.
* Automatically disable your cellular and WIFI connections when your phone goes to sleep. And I don't mean idling your WIFI connection, which still uses battery and periodically wakes up and communicates with nearby access points. WiSyncPlus remembers to turn it off, so you don't have to.
* Easily disable or enable schedule events without the need to delete and create. Provides power and flexibility to more easily support your changing schedule.
* Automatically synchronize your phone when connected to a WIFI access point providing Internet Access.
* Optionally enable a notification to easily turn off and on your Internet access; WIFI and APN.
* Optionally be notified if WIFI is left on but not connected. This prevents your WIFI from draining your battery when WIFI is not in use.
* WiSyncPlus now has twelve shortcuts. With one click on your desktop you can:
o Toggle APN
o Toggle WIFI
o Enable Auto-Sync
o Disable Auto-Sync
o Force Synchronize - your customer configuration
o Synchronize Calendars
o Synchronize Contacts
o Synchronize Gmail
o Lock APN to prevent scheduler from turning it off.
o Lock WIFI to prevent scheduler from turning it off.
o Enable APN and Launch Browser
o Enable WIFI and Launch Browser
* WiSyncPlus remembers if you manually enabled Internet access. Should a scheduled event fire which would turn off your Internet access, WiSyncPlus doesn't allow it. That's just one more way WiSyncPlus works hard to transparently work with you.
* More features and actions are already planned! So go on, what are you waiting for? This is a "must have" application for every Android phone.
There's also a freebie version does nothing more than turn autosync on/off whenever wifi turns on/off.

Curious to hear your results. I definitely like the "no sync while the screen is off" option.

I've been running Sholes ROMs for a while now, and they are great. However, two points:

1. The 2.1 launcher sucks badly. It's horribly broken on the Droid. I would recommend not using it until 2.1 is officially released.

2. The latest Sholes ROM also enables compcache which has been causing issues. Disable it, and the ROM *should* work without lockups.

9.5 hours of mixed use today... some wifi browsing, I downloaded a few apps, a bunch of texting and phone calls and the battery is at 50% power right now. I've got it set to sync every 30 minutes.

I really like my g1, hacked to holy high hell. Running cyanogen's rom, and the 1400mah battery.

Trying slide screen now, I like it I think. Also got the weather app/widget from the nexus 1 via xda forums.

I want a snapdragon phone with a qwerty keyboard... debated the n1, and the droid isn't enough of a bump in power to justify going to vzw.

Is it just the QWERTY that's preventing you? My previous phones have had either on-screen or physical QWERTY and the Nexus is very usable.

I got my Moment and I'm loving it so far despite one problem...something got messed up when I activated and despite being able to do everything else with the phone (text, e-mail, web, etc), I could not access the Droid Market. I would get this 'could not establish reliable data connection' error. Did some research and found out the cure was a factory reset. Did that and now everything is working 100%...too bad I now have to redo all my contacts.

Your contacts aren't in your Gmail account? If not, you should put them there. You'll never need to enter them again -- probably.

All my contacts were on my ancient 3+ year old phone and I could not transfer them over. It is all good now and everything is working perfectly.
