The ipod updates were always a worry that the think would completely reboot or something. Not very user friendly.

Using my IPhone as internet connection for PC. Been looking for a way to get value for my unlimited data package.


Let's see how the upgrade goes.

They are eventually going to be like a replacement of a small computer out on the road. Definitely useful to lots of people.

Couldnt get an iphone (the Boss made my stick to the docomo and the family plan) but, no matter this past Monday I bought the new release from docomo: the HT-03A better known as the "HTC magic".

It is a brilliant beast of a phone, the Google Android OS is very smooth and fast and the apps from the Android market are awesome and mostly all free.

Choosing between a iphone or this phone would be like choosing between a BMW or a Benz. Both are excellent.

Also it was really cheap to buy - only about 30000yen (or by installments) which is less than half the price of all the top line Japanese models now. All you can use internet for a shade over 5000yen a month.

The only problem is the battery - it drains fast,and it comes with a spare battery in the box. If you can live with that then you are golden.

If you are a docomo user who wanted an Iphone but didnt want to leap to Softbank, I recommend this badboy.
