lg g2x ice cream sandwich

I know there is an unofficial development in the works but it does not support voice yet (defeats the purpose of a phone). However I am seeing today that the LG optimusx2 will recieve ICS at some point. My understanding is whether it's branded t-mobile or just straight up LG it's the exact same phone. So this means that ICS is coming both officially and unofficially to the g2x? *crosses fingers* f the new phones btw...

Best app to sync with outlook

I was hoping for suggestions from peeps with experience with different sync apps.

I am looking for a very user friendly app. Preferable for free, but I will be willing to pay $50 for a solid, user friendly app.

I need contacts, calendars, task and notes.

Thanky in advance!

Android app for movies and tv shows. . .

I recently found out about this app called Ginkgo Video Pro, there's a one time charge of $5, the file size of the app is only 300kb's, so it doesn't take up much internal memory, and movies & tv shows get downloaded to your memory card. This Friday is my next payday, I'm gonna download it then. Just thought I would tell others here that might be interestes.

Phones with trackpads/trackballs?

Can someone tell me which Android phones have a trackpad or trackball? I am a blind tech enthusiast and I refuse the iPhone cult my blind friends have joined. I like open source but I need navigation options. However, I do not like phones with keyboards. Which of the current offerings in the primary carriers has hardware with trackpad/trackball navigation? Thanks, Brian

BlackBerry vs. Android

Can someone point me in the direction (and or provide info directly) of where I can get a good quick comparison of the Android OS vs. BlackBerry?

I was all set to go for the BB 9900 (TMobile is my carrier) but was told to rethink that choice and I have to admit the initial sticker price on the device has made me pause. My main interest is the access to email on the go and good sound quality. I am tech savvy but do not desire a steep learning curve. I just learned about the Samsung Galaxy S II coming out for TMobile tomorrow and am now researching that device but am open to other suggestions. If anyone has left BB for Android I would bevery interested in hearing about your experience(and also why you made ...

Where we usually are shopping?

I always shop on ebay to buy less than that in the case of the same quality, but can not buy the cheapest products. Now shopping has become more B2C e-commerce platform, so allow me to find the product were lower, saving us a lot of money, such as the purchase of jewelry gadget I like to go:, I like to go to Amazon to buy books, etc. . And prepare a more adequate comparison sites to ensure that we find a better product, and then help yourself to save more money, I would like to share their own favorite sites!

Purchased products are generally what we are most concerned about?

1 arrival time. If this is not urgent, then we are not within the normal range too concerned about it, if we hurry, we often decide whether to buy.
