For a very very long period I have been watching friends and collegues using smartphones like Apple iPhone and HTC Hero. I was never in doubt: Smartphones brought a new meaning to cell phones – a very positive twist! I have had problems however deciding on which way to go – the Apple (iPhone) or the Google (Android) road. The Microsoft road might be interesting, but I have not actually seen one in action amoung my friends – so for me it was never an option.
Yesterday I bought a smartphone: An Android 2.1 based HTC Legend
I will try to write here on my blog about my experiences with it – I will create a page “HTC Legend, pros and cons” and “Developing apps for Android based smartphones”. I am looking forward to doing so and hope to bring usefull information to people who are in doubt about which smartphone to invest in. Also I hope to get response from current users of smartphones here on my blog. Developing apps for Android is an area which I will also look into.
For now I will leave it here – later I will edit this post, activating the links to the pages mentioned above! Oh and finally I would like to show what my 4½ years old daughter “invested” in – just to put in contrast what an IT-nerd at the age of 45 is turned on by!
