BGR and iPad

BGR's Zach Epstein recently wrote a featured editorial blasting tablet manufacturers for not following Apple's lead. He then blasted them for many of the same choices that Apple made with the iPad.

I couldn't leave it alone, so I posted a rebuttal on my site. Please read. Thanks. ... »

T-Mobile LG G2x gingerbread received on 26 July 2011 - OTA

I received the G2x OTA (Over-The-Air) Gingerbread update Tuesday morning. I seem to be one of the first ones however. (Android 2.3.3, Kernal It took about 11 minutes. It is only slightly different visually.

I haven't noticed any real differences, except that it hasn't "locked up" or re-booted itself....yet. Keeping fingers crossed :-)

Android-er to be.

I currently own a Blackberry 9700 which I loathe, for a lack of better terms, and I am looking to go Android, on T-Mobile.

The two phones I have in mind are the LG G2x and the upcoming HTC Sensation. I know that the LG G2x runs a stock version of Android and the HTC has the 'Sense'.

Aside from looks, what does HTC's custom user interface offer up that the stock Android does not? Is it a big deal, or mostly vanity?

And lastly, does the phone being version 2.2 or 2.3 really make a world of difference?

I'm really looking for some helpful insight, so if all you plan on saying is "HTC sucks!" or "LG sucks" or "Android sucks" or "Get an iPhone" or something empty-headed of that sort, please don't.

Thanks in advance for any help!

New market

Has anyone else seen this? Its ugly. I just activated a CLNR phone for someone and BOOM there it was. Its ugly as sin but has added books and movies to the categories. Looks like the only option is to rent for 3.99 on movies.

This is a DX2 that I am looking at. Has anyone heard if this is only for this phone or it will be for any new android?

Also I noticed the verizon tab has disappeared, Which is sweet, because I want one of the AT&T specific applications.

None of AT&T phones will work on their LTE system?

I think I just figured out that non of AT&Ts 4G phones will ever work on their LTE system (different from Verizon's LTE) when they finally complete their backfill.

Say it ain't so!

If this is true, then I bet a bunch of folks are buying 4G units right now, thinking that they will eventually be able to reap the benefits of AT&T's LTE system later!

If I have a prepaid plan with t-mobile, and I recently bought off an android from a friend. I know that the Moto Cliq XT is an old phone, but am I able to use the same SIM Card with it? And would I need a data plan in order to access the web or would upgrade to the prapaid plans that have data would get it to work? Another quick question, would the old sim card affect the text messages? Thanks for helping me. I'm not familiar with the tmobile phones. Sorry.

Android Question

Just a quick question, and I think I know the answer, just want a second opinion.

Android requires how much internal memory to run smoothly without impacting the UI or Hardware of the device. Obviously I understand that it will depend on paramters of the phone...I.E. CPU, RAM, etc. etc....just wanting a general idea.

Samsung Gem help!

Honestly, I have never been on a forum thing before and I am not sure this is even the right category for what I need help with. Might as well ask anyway though.

I have a Samsung Gem and I am trying to send a picture to my aunt. I know that I can send pictures, but the picture never sends. It usually says that the file is too big. Any suggestions on what to do or why my picture won't send?
