Eric, is it possible to upload "your own mp3 ringtones" to Drift?
Thanks in advance.
bogus battery life
So I charge it up overnight and bring it to work. The second day of my dear Drift's life saw just moderate text messaging, less than 30 minutes of talking, and a few minutes of entering in some of my phone numbers. Due to a busy day, I didn't have much time to do anything else with it and yet again, it was completely dead at the end of the day.
I don't know about you but I'm used to getting a solid two days...
I have a few questions before I buy. Thanks in advance!
1) Is the accuracy of the GPS comparable to that of a stand-alone GPS device? How is quality affected in the city or inside a building? Could I pinpoint where on a city block I was?
2) Can you see your raw latitude and longitude?
3) Now this is a long shot: does anyone know how the you could expose your GPS coordinates to a third-party website or application on the phone? Could anyone write a program like Google did and put it on the phone?
My first question was whether you could use the ...
I was wondering what your initial impressions of the Web Browser... I'm a Sidekick3 user, and one of the main reasons I use the fone are for its web-browsing features^^;
I stopped by a Helio dealer today, (they didn't have a drift) and played w/ a hero to see if I would be willing to pay the $200 cancellation fee w/ T-mobile in order to get a Drift....
Unfortuantely... I found it slow, and impractical... I don't mind WAP only, but the fact that I have to exit the browser to do ANYTHING else on the fone really kills it for me... The SK3 isn't the GREATEST Multi-tasker, but I can switch between processes really easily, without having to stop one in order to do another..
Did samsung improve anything? Is it any snappier? are yo...

The MP3 player...
(sorry for all the questions, these have been keeping me up at night!)
first the bad news, because it answers your question. The only thing you can do while the media player is playing is send or view text messages. you canno...

External stereo speakers?
"finally" able to...?
Just wondering, when you mention things like:
"Also the Drift is finally able to read mp3s, movies and pictures you load on the device yourself by using mass storage mode."
What exactly do you mean by "finally" - what are you comparing the Drift to? On my Hero, I have tons of movies music and photos on both my MiniSD card and the internal memory.. also, the Hero has always had the option to auto-save photos you take...
Thanks for all the great pics!
