Last week I got a hold of the HTC G1 Android Developer Phone. This (how else) was preceded by a big fight with my cellular operator who insisted that I will take a data plan.
Ok, I said to myself, I bought this phone so that obviously mean I will use cellular internet. "So how much is that data plan?" I asked the representative.
"It's 1000K" she replied. "1MB?" I asked in wonder. "No, not 1MB – 1000 KB!"
That's when I understood she has no clue what she's talking about. Furthermore, this "joke-data plan" was limited to WAP browsing. Oh come on!!!!
And I can't replace it for a real data plan; I have to add money on top of it!
Well, I do not want to bore you with this specific war, because this is only a prolog for this post, but let's just say it pays off to be stubborn. I ended up with no obligation to any data plan (which of course I took one, but now I can cancel it any time).
Now that I've got THAT over with, I got around to checking out this wonderful phone (and forgive me iPhone fans – I'm not saying this is BETTER than iPhone, only that it's DIFFERENT).
