New Phone


So, we were relatively early smart phone adopters. I had a Google G1, wife had a Nexus One. She upgraded to an Incredible and I got the Nexus One (I still need to sell that G1).

After the last Android firmware update to 2.3.3 I started encountering problems. The touch screen wouldn’t respond properly once in a while, if I put it in a pocket the screen would go nuts with clicks, opening stuff, etc. I also got a number of app conflicts resulting in force closes for stuff that had been running properly before. Keep in mind, I never rooted the thing to install a customs ROM (I recommend CM7 – rock solid, highly customizeable, seems to clear up many of these types of problems; wife runs it on her phone and I have it on my rooted Nook).

So when the HTC Sensation 4G came out I grabbed one. I like it.

This one should tide me over for a while; hopefully long enough to determine if the AT&T/T-Mobile merger is going to actually happen, ‘cuz if it does I’m out of here like Speedy Gonzales the second my contract expires.
