Well, I have already defected, but I hang around.
I have my A5IT 500GB which eventually after most of the bugs were fixed with updates (sound familiar!) became a top notch device. Then the battery died and LO! you can't get one replaced unless you send it back (RMA) for the pound of flesh cost.
I have my Gen 8 A70 which is OK, cheap (Charbax's mantra) slooow, bug ridden, but OK and Yeah CHEAP!! (say no more).
Then I bought a HTC Flyer 32GB 3G (sim free BTW Charbax so dont quote contract prices please) for AED2949 here in Abu Dhabi and by golly, the extra cost WELL worth the lack of hassle!! I hear they have dropped the price of the WiFi only in UK to less than UKP400.
Just holding the Flyer feels good, a little heavier than a 8GB A70 but solid. Display is crisp, viewable from all angles, non of the A70 weird image to each eye in portrait mode due to bad angles
Flip the display and it ROTATES, it does not dissappear whilst you twiddle your fingers waitin for it to refresh.
And HTC Sense 0n Gingerbread 2.3 is a dream, dual panel emails almost as good as Honeycomb, which BTW s arriving for it soon.
The addition of a pen so you can input on the screen is a little limited at the moment but I find it excellent to comment on any email or attachment then send it back.
OH, bloody 'ell. I sound like a a HTC version of Charbax.
At least one thing about Charbax has to be said, he may defend Archos, but he is always willing to let the other side speak or we would not have a competitors thread!
