Hi there, I'm wondering which HTC phone is telecoms Okta touch seen here:
https://www.telecom.co.nz/mobile/shop/front/0,,204449-201928,00.html?action=/mshop_viewHandset&productCode=OKTATOUCHG&ph=moshp

I'm guessing it is either the HTC p3450 or the HTC p3452?

Cheers,
Jeremy

Ah I see now why you said "its a version of".  The telecom version is actually a P3050, which has double the RAM and ROM as the original Touch

Thanks for the link, very helpful!

it is a pretty cool phone. ive got one atm. there are a few minor annoyances that pop up. the main issue is making sure that telecom have actually put you on the right data plan. my first bill was around the 400 mark due to their error. they sorted it out and refunded it to their credit

I've heard some horror stories so have been keeping a close tab on my spending via the telecom website - pretty handy

I'm now looking in to the different software available - I also want to get my hands on Android OS, but I think I will wait till there is a more official release rather than the developer kit

Do you think it will be possible to install Android on the Okta?

yes, Android done and verified working, was superb to have such an early working proof of concept release back when it was done.


Okta touch is officially an "HTC Vogue", you should find lots of info on this specific CDMA device by using those keywords.
