garvani: Cant say ive ever had a problem typing on a resistive screen.. All 3 of my touch screen phones have been/are resistive, you get the odd wrong letter but i put that down to fat finger/typing to fast Cool


Capacitive screens are feather-touch sensitive. Resistive tend to be easier to use with a stylus.

The Eken M001 is resistive and a pair of cut off knitting needles enhance two-handed typing enormously.  


Plus if you chuck in some steel wool you can whack out a volkswagon while you text.

I got one for my wife. It is a awesome phone for that price ($200).

Replaced ROM with this one

http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=802893

Tested Mr Edition Rom and it's Spinoff. Wifi did not work on those ones.

Just a question though. Are Vodafone Prepaid phones locked to the network. I got a prepaid phone 3 years ago and it was not locked. Just wondering if they changed their policy

3g: I've been using a Vodafone 845 for a week or two now, evaluating it as an alternative platform to Windows Mobile/CE. I find it a good phone, having used Android 1.5 on a Sciphone N19 and 1.6 on an Eken M001.

Anyway, now that I've received my tracking number for my own personal Vodafone 845, I thought I'd mention (if people haven't already seen) that the Warehouse have a special introductory pricing for the Vodafone 845 for $199 (half price).

They are sold out online, but you may be able to pickup one instore.

Enjoy.

I just ordered one from Vodafone NZ on line.

For that price I'll have a good look at it and may flog it through TradeMe before Xmas. Or keep it as a backup or a gift for one of my daughters. :-)

UPDATE 12:50pm: Just got email saying the phone has been despatched and I will have it soon.  So either later this afternoon or sometime tomorrow. That's pretty cool.

lokhor: so did the Mr. Edition rom work or not?


No, the WIFI is not working on that on that one. Use the Celestial Teapot one. It is easier to overclock with that one.

Plus it has a pretty sweet opening logo.
