New Theories for a New Time

Android on newer devices


The Freerunner is OK for its age, but it lacks a keyboard, a camera, 3G, and support from the official Android Market. Plus, it runs Android 1.6, whereas all the current phones run 2.0.1 or 2.1. So with considerable trepidation at the move to somewhat less-open open source, I broke down and bought the Motorola Milestone now that Telus has it available for sale in Canada with North American 3G frequencies. In fact, I bought the first one at one of the Toronto Telus stores, so maybe I bought the first one in Toronto. Anyway: So far so good; I hope to do a detailed writeup one of these days.
