So last week I decided to get a new phone, I thought I should get rid of my iPhone 3g s, so what would be a worthwhile upgrade iPhone 4 maybe. Well no. Simply put it would cost me too much of £450 in the UK. So I decided to get a android phone, maybe it was because it is cheaper I picked up a HTC desire s for £400 only £50 I know but is it worth it. Yes it is, with a 1ghz processor and 800mb of RAM it is fast and with a S-LCD display is better than the iPhone 3g s. But why did I move to android what better does it offer than ios well I decided to tell you today.
Simply put ever user is suited to a different OS system on a phone and weather it be ios, windows phone 7 or android and user must decided what suits them best for there everyday needs. Android offers for me a great way to keep everything together, simply entering my Gmail account allows everything to be synced with it upon choice, calenders, contacts and even notes without hassel. I have also found may options through certain apps that allow me to simply put music on my phone wirlessy and fast which could not be archived on a iPhone without jailbreaking, android does this out of the box. Personalized windows is also another big incentive for me as I like customizing things. HTC offers many ways of personalizing things through the use of skins and beautiful Widgets. Widgets provide a great way of getting relevant information without opening apps up, something which I think ios was missing and hope they anounse it with ios 5 this summer. Fair enough though the android app store is not as good as apple app store but in time it will get better. In all Android for me is a great option and I’m loving using it more than I did with ios. It provides me with a great phone OS and is veg easy to use and work and many people l, just like with ios are willing to hack the software and customize it differnetly all the time. Would I recommend Android, yes but with caution for people who like things simpler and maybe easy to use ios will be better but again it depends on the user. Comment and tell me what you think?

On the 15 of December last year Infinite Dreams told the world that there game Jelly Defence was coming to the iPhone. Nearly 8 months on the game is still not out why? My theory is that with two new devices out since that time (iPhone 4 & iPad) that they have to change there game to cater these idevices. Even is this is the case there website http://idreams.pl/JellyDefence ha posted nothing since not even any screenshots or information. Nor have they posted any information on any forums. What ever the reason I’m begging to think that they may have abandoned this game. O well.
