Swapped my HP Mini NetBook for a Vodafone Smart Tab 7 running Android Honeycomb 3.2.Quite a capable little tablet.Dualcore 1.2GHz,1GB RAM,16GB internal memory ect
I never needed a tablet but I got to admit this thing is growing on me.7" inch is perfect.
Honeycomb 3.2 has got to be my favourite Android release.

Freaking awesome for browsing, I use mine in landscape whenever I use it like now, some days I just use it, but most of the time I'm on my GS2 because its faster and more compact.

Awesome thing about tablets is their ridiculously long battery life, smartphones, laptops/net books simply can't touch tablets at battery lifetime, I sometimes forget to turn off my Tab, and I comeback to it 5days later and its still sitting there with 35% battery, its madness, they take quite a beating, constant use I can get a good day or two, I've never managed to get it to die between charges from 100% to 5% in a day.

Hi all!

it's been a while, I trust everyone is doing well

I recently lost my laptop and I can now upgrade my contract. Which phone would you advice me to get on mtn since I don't have a laptop for the time being, my 2 year old HTC desire doesn't do it for me anymore

I'm considering the following current & future phones (though I must say, I can't wait any longer)

1. Galaxy Note (it's rather too big)
2. HTC one X (When it becomes available, anyone know where that will be?)
3. Samsung Galaxy S3 (When it finally gets announced lol)
4. Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 (No voice communication sucks, will be forced to keep the desire)

thanks guys!

Wait for the HTC One X to arrive...unless the GS3 arrives sooner, lol.
If you want something future proof for the next 2years you'll need to get one of the quad-cores.

Get the Galaxy Note then, if i was in your position i'd find it hard to pass the Note, that HD Super AMOLED display is drool worthy, you could then use both it and Desire, and it will be getting Android4.0 ICS with Premium Samsung Suit soon.
