I feel a fire burning in my hands, almost like an excitement I felt once before.... That's right, I've decided to give the Droid camp a go. In some ways, it was by accident really.
When I sold my Storm Trooper 3GS, I had to resort to using a trusty ol'Nokia E52. A great workhorse, exceptionally good to use. Except... it wasn't a touchscreen device. It didn't have a big screen. It didn't have apps I could download freely (ok, I'm not saying OVI isn't decent enough). It made me feel... incomplete almost.
Then, my brother came back from overseas and planted (an inception? =/) into my thoughts. "Why not an Android?". I brushed it of at first, but then the seed grew. "Yeah, why not an Android? Why not....".
All the more my E52 suddenly felt so lacking. And, with the iPhone 4 so difficult to source (no way was I gonna pay obscene prices for local ones), AND, a door opened for a Samsung Galaxy S deal to fall through.... I dived in.
For a day.
Long story. But I was hooked.
Anyway, I'm now an owner of an HTC Desire! Its been a week and a half of spending time with the Rebel Alliance (sorry for the lingo, I'm a Star Wars fanboy). There were times when I felt the force within to stick with the Empire, but no. The decision has been made. I will stick with it.
And, to be honest, I am quite enjoying the life in the android world. I can still do what I used to do on my 3GS, only differently. Facebook is there, Twitter is there, Whatsapp is there (now). I'm reconnected to the world.
Over the next few weeks, I intend to write up a bit on my experience. Stay tuned!
