I have finally got a replacement for the hated HTC Desire. I has a Nokia N8. Oh god, it's SUCH a relief. The speaker is a little bit tinny, as opposed to unlistenably awful like the Desire's. Podcatcher is a free podcast client that actually works. You can easily set up different notification tones for email, tweet and text message. You can easily rearrange menus, stop and start applications, delete applications, etc.

Contacts (those that I have left, anyway) have synched seamlessly with google, and there is a fabulous contact merge function, as opposed to "linking".

Most important of all, the first battery charge, which is never an optimal charge, with very heavy usage, lasted nearly two days.

I've had it for three days now, and I am so, so, SO glad.

The one downside, the one thing I miss, is the back button. That's a tiny price to pay, given that most apps have the "back" touch area in the same place, for all the upsides.

Anyhew, happy Jennie is happy, and also has a new mobile number. If you have my old number it now no longer works. If you need my new number and haven't had a text from me telling you what it is, you can find it on my friends-only contact details post, or you can leave a comment here letting my know to contact you with it.

Now we just need to think of a name for it... ;)
