Bluetooth not backwards compatible
My One X is 2 months old, i did not see this upgrade coming!
It hangs/crashes in spates - several times in a day then nothing for a few days. Battery will last day on phone use only but putting wifi or bluetooth on drops that and screen brightness needs to be minimum possible.
Worst of all I cannot use it with bluetooth system in my new citroen as the older protocols it has installed are not compatible with those on One X. Mr previous sensation XE worked OK.
Vodafone Gateway v Virgin Media = femto fail
We have the original Vodafone gateway unit which worked fine in itself but was switched off a long time ago. The problem was the ntl/virgin media connection which continually timed out and dropped the calls. This also slowed down our other internet activity. We were caught in the middle; Voda saying their device worked correctly while VM said our internet connection problems disappear when we turned off the Gateway device. I am convinced VM detected the device traffic and slowed it down deliberately so they did not carry Vodafones traffic without them paying for it! The engineers denied it of course. Home femtocell great when it worked but was completely unreliable technology/service.
Berners Lee was right again - why NOT to buy apps!
This is the way that Apple, twitterbook et. al. are privatising the internet.
If you want this android information, or any other information, get onto a web page and find it! With improved facility to keep favourites/bookmarks and sync them across devices, most browsers are much easier to use now when looking at the same site for updated info. DO use the web pages and keep the net open and working to modern standards. DON'T buy into closed access/walled garden systems.
Sony won't be happy!
Now I know it's Friday and I promise I have not got the beer goggles on yet, but it looks like you forgot the UMPC category that Sony created for itself. In case you are not as old as me thats Ultra Mobile PC. Perhaps you need to find a new pub with bigger beer mats to draw the new chart on!
