An HTC named Desire. OK, two HTCs...

Consistancy again lacking

When are HTC going to realize that releasing so, so many handsets in such a short amount of time will be their downfall. How on earth do app developers maintain a standard when their are so many screen resolutions and other hardware performance factors to cater for. Everybody (non-iPhone owners I'd add) complain about being locked into the iPhone walled garden, but you know what? It's a flipping HUGE garden to play in. No I am not being a fan boy, but iPhone are winning the hearts of the application devs because they know they can write code for a particular hardware and it will work, and work beautifully. NOT so with Andriod (I won't even visit MS in this discussion) - because Andriod devs, don;t know what they are writing for from one month to the next. HTC - STOP flooding the market with new models every 3 weeks. Fail in the long run.

It sucked anyway

Awful quality, every time somebody called me, I needed to phone them back on a normal mobile connection. And it would only play through the speaker phone ... WTF???, unless you had a hands free earpiece, so everybody could hear your conversation. CRAP.

Depends on your income

@ JonB

83k / trip risk of 4 years. Not Bad??

That's bad, very bad. I guess if your normally earning 20K per year, it's 'not bad' - 4 years income (tax free mind). But those of us on significantly higher than 20K pa, this isn't a good method to earn money.
