    Default New Phones

    Hey,i was thinking of buying several phones online since they are generally cheaper and some of those models are not available in singapore.Htc's Evo 4g,Google's Nexus One,Apple's Iphone 4 and Htc's Droid Incredible are on my mind presently.I would like to ask peoples who are using any one of those phones above whether they can use the phone for calling/sms-ing in singapore with our local telcom,m1?

    The HTC Evo 4G won't work in Singapore because it's a CDMA/WiMAX/EV-DO phone.

    The equivalent for GSM/HSPA+ has been shown apparently: http://www.engadget.com/2010/09/15/h...irst-hands-on/

    Yup, the equivalent to the Evo is the Desire HD. Actually it looks just like a HD2 with Android and new hardware.

    Actually, other than the physical keyboard, the Desire HD would be the flagship Android phone alongside the Galaxy S.

    The Desire Z has a smaller screen, slower processor (800Mhz vs 1Ghz) and slight lesser amount of memory.

    Oh and according to the HWZ report, the phones should be available in Singapore next month! Hooray!

    You can put Android on the HD2, doesn't look very difficult too. Hit up the wizards at XDA.

    How does it compare with iP4 & galaxy S when it is on android?

    the crappy winmo is an insult to the hardware that houses it.. IMO..

    Wah thread digger.

    Now that WM 7 is out, I don't think anyone would say those words anymore?
