I went to this shop one day and asked the shop owner and smth like this happened: Excuse me sir. Whats the advantages of Android
He goes: Well its the latest Software
Puzzled im like: So? Whats so good about that?
He answers: It the latest software.
I go: So what makes it so special?
Gets a bit angry: LOOK! ITS THE LATEST SOFTWARE DAMMIT!

So i come out and go visit a friend of mine who happened to have just recently bought an android based mobile. So i ask him: Cool! But i have a question. What makes android special?

He looks at his cell phone for a while then at me and says: Well... its the latest software?!!!
It has HUGE benefits.

Not having to use a program like i-tunes to transfer files to or enable your device.

1. I can connect my Android device to my pc, and mount it as external storage. To break it all down for you, connect the Phone to PC, and drag and drop files to and from.

2. Flash support.

3. Like mentioned earlier, Custom ROM's, Kernals, and Themes. There is a growing community of developers that are hard at work everyday making improvements and tweaks to the original software. Most of the time, for the better.

4. Not having an i-phone... Sorry, Had to jab that one in there.

5. A wide range of devices, anywhere from starter phones to some far out high end devices.

If you like to tweak, tinker, customise, and not live in the walled in garden of Apple, Android is the perfect choice.

If you're not into any of that stuff, want to use the phone out of the box and not change a thing on it, I'd recommend you to an I-phone.

I flashed a custom HBOOT today and there's so much more space available on the internal phone storage, even though I'm using App2SD with a 1GB partition for it on the SD card.

I also thought it went wrong at one point, as when I restarted, I must have missed the boot animation and thought my phone had turned off as nothing was coming on the screen, so I thought I'd bricked it, but as I had to make a nandroid backup and restore it after flashing the HBOOT, it was just Android taking a while to load

That first boot after a custom rom flash can be an eternity sometimes. Usually takes a few minutes, and every second feels like a minute.

Alrighty, I thought you'd like this info Dinesh. A 2.3.2 Gingerbread ROM has just been leaked for the Samsung Galaxy S a few hours ago.

This is just a beta build, and I'm not really going to mess around with this one just yet. There's a list of things not really working.

Hopefully the Devs get this one ready for prime time soon. The advancements of CM7 should really take off now.

I'm hoping to get an Android Device - not an iOS device. But there aren't so much Android "stuff" in New Zealand.

There's an official version of Gingerbread primed for the I9000 Galaxy S's, isn't there? Give it time for them to work their magic on XDA and it'll be put together for every version of it really.

I've read that the Nexus S is being released in Australia soon. If you are able to get that, then I'd go for it. It's a very nice phone.
