    I've just upgraded my phone from a POS tocco to a HTC HD mini

    spec not as good as the HD2 (processor and ram are smaller) but it'll do

    yeah i know, but i blagged an early upgrade and even windows 5 phone would be better than my 'shitslung taco' atm.

    biggest annoyance though is if voda still stocked the hd2, that apparently would be eligible for a free upgrade, not going to hold breath on hd mini having the same as the processor is half size and ram is a bit smaller

    Ive just bagged myself a htc desire for free on an 18month 25 contract. If i had wanted the iphone i would have prob had to pay 15 a month more on a 24mth contract and then still have to pay a stupid amount for the phone!

    Iphones although maybe good arent worth the money to me! Especially when i hate touch screen but appears to be the way all newer phones are going Thought i'd ease myself in with out to much outlay.

    I didn't like the iPhone touch screen at first, but love it now (unless I'm wearing gloves)

    Back on topic:
    I've been reading that the new Windows 7 blows all the old stuff away.

    having decided to do some proper digging about now (not really followed the windows phone thing properly, but have said for ages next one will be) i've found some of the specs apparently required...
    Screen size; 480x800 or 480x320 pixels - mini has 480x320
    Memory; 256MB - mini has 384 MB RAM and 512 MB ROM
    Camera (?) - 5mp - again check!
    Processor needs to be a ARMv7 Cortex/Scorpion, both the HD2 and HD mini run qualcomm, so i think this can be got away with as the hd2 will get free upgrade, but it is 1ghz, not 528mhz...
    either way if an upgrade is purchasable i think i'll chance it, if my wifes netbook can take the jump from xp to 7 home premium with no issues, this might be possible as well...

    edit; the more i look at wm7 the more impressed i am with it, BUT it feels a bit too much like the 360 interface on some of vodafones handsets, and i wasn't too impressed with that, being geared heavily toward multiple facebook/twitter/etc status updates and making the whole 'social network' thing more easy. that's not so much what i'm after.

    when you think about it, we just need cyber brains with an external memory bit to replace the use of fb/twitter/etc to share stuff with people and it'll be like real life ghost in the shell... almost... but that would be cool. unless windows crashes my brain

    symbian rules all phoneOS's, that is all
    We don't believe in the star system. We want the focus to be on the music. If we have to create an image, it must be an artificial image. That combination hides our physicality and also shows our view of the star system. It is not a compromise-daftpunk

    I've been an Apple fanboy for ages, but I'm not into iPhones at all. In aerospace we use them to test system integrity as they are one of the worst known sources of interference!! Even in "airplane" mode they can break squelch on aerospace radios. We have a reported case of a pilot having a passenger removed prior to departure because they refused to completely shut down their iPhone.

    Personally, I use a cheap Nokia (great reception and sound quality) and an iPod touch for music and apps. If anything happens to the phone, meh, who cares. Just replace it. Modular, baby!
