My name is jono and I have a problem. I'm addicted to gadgets. That's my excuse for getting yet another new phone. I have been so pleased with the HTC brand that I wanted to stay with them but I really wanted to switch my OS from Windows Mobile (which has just too many problems for me) to Google's offering, Android. After a bit of research I settled on the HTC Hero. I'm convinced I made the right choice.
I am a bit of a Google addict. I use them for my Gmail, Contacts, Calendar, documents and of course blogging. This made the choice of an Android phone an obvious one and it really works. The first boot of the phone prompts for your account details and this immediately syncs up everything. In addition, the entering of Facebook, Twitter and Flickr account details also links everything in so that by simply viewing a contact it will show me what they have been up to.
Of course the main thing about Android is the market. Akin to Apple's App Store, Android Market allows you to choose from and download 100's of great applications. If you are looking for a serious contender to iPhone 3GS, this may well be it.
