    You can buy covers for anything on eBay.

    Regardless, I just said that "some people" would buy a new cover. I'm not one of those people. I'm always looking for an excuse to buy a new toy.

    Speaking of which, I've had my previous phone for a year now, which means that I feel like getting something new. Anybody interested in an HTC Trinity (P3600) PDA phone for $200 (with Windows Mobile 6.1, GPS, WiFi, 3G, Bluetooth, and pretty much every other feature that phones have these days)? I thought I was getting a bargain when I picked it up slightly used for $300 USD (which was $450 AUD at the time), but I guess I should have gotten an older model if I didn't want it to depreciate.

    And still, no one has satisfactorily proven, that it isn't opposite day.

    Where's the "none of the above" option. "Other" doesn't cut it for me. All touch screen phones are a wank and a complete waste of time and money IMO.

    Maybe. Well I still want an iPhone, and my dad's birthday pressie gave me most of the money for it!

    Currently tempted to buy a 16gb 3g iPhone which is $600 at the moment. Expires tomorrow though, so I'll have to ask mum to use her account to get it!

    I'm 18 in 28 days, doo-dah, doo-dah. I'm 18 in 28 days, doo-dah doo-dah day.

    That's just skill... I'm always losing stuff (purse, bus pass, money, clothes), but never managed to lose a phone =)

    Memory capacity problem is usually rectified by SD card (getting cheaper every day!). Even though bigger RAM makes PDA faster.

    Recently I decided to get a new PDA/phone after some research decided on HTC Touch HD. Having bought it I recalled this thread and came across your recommendation. Speaking of coincidence...

    Yes! That's another thing about Apple's brilliant marketing... they make you think that the iPhone is the only way to get a 16GB hard drive on a phone. I have a 16GB microSD card in my Windows Mobile phone.

    That 16Gb on iPhone - is it RAM or HD?
    If it's HD, is it still faster then SD?

    BTW, I only have 8Gb microSD card (had 2Gb on the old phone).

    Another question:
    I could not work out the time when TouchFlo was introduced (found some references for 2007). Was before or after iPhone?

    -Sprout85 =)
    512Mb Rom
    288Mb Ram
    8Gb - micro SD card

    Windows Mobile is an OS used by PocketPC. Currently 6.1 is the latest with 6.5 coming out soon. HTC Touch HD has an upgrade option (to 6.5), but I'll wait until 6.5 is tested out (and maybe a patch or two released). I never rush with installing latest version of Windows

    On the subject of being lost - layout of your post makes it easy.

    I think the iPhone has a hard drive, but I never really notice the difference in speed... especially if you buy a high-speed SD card.

    No it is using flash memory. i.e the 8GB, 16GB or 32GB.
    The memory in the 3GS is 256MB.

    Started using my HTC couple of days ago.
    So far I was happy with two exceptions:
    1. Many applications (especially old) are not ready for high definition screen.
    2. Strange problem with emails - can see them in the preview, but when I open them can only see empty screen - the body is missing completely. Called HTC, they said their procedure is: delete email settings and recreate them. if it does not help - hard reset the device. What the heck!!! In other words their support leaves a lot to desire.
