I am sitting at work wistfully looking at parallel importing sites and wishing that Telecom had a decently powerful android hand set. I'm a mac user, but the iPhone has never really done it for me despite the fact it has more polish...

Anyone else on XT hoping for a decent android handset?

you could always turn this thread into a "I wish telecom had" kept the same or better price scheme on its new mobile network.

Main reason I did not change it was cheaper for me to stay with vodafone.

johnr: There is already a thread about this on GZ


That might be true, but it was more along the lines of what is available as opposed to how many people wished something was. I thought it was a rather brusque reply to the question considering I was ready to take advantage of a sale and get a hero and switch back to vf.

iPhone I think still has the best touch interface out there but there are differences of opinion I guess. Think I like android because its still a little geeky.

If only Telecom had.....someone who could turn up to work for me, read my emails, attend my meetings, and let me know which one's are worth me dealing with.

Oh sorry, was this not the purpose of this thread?

Who needs caffeine? The occasional beating and air would do it here..
