NZtechfreak: Anyone else pulled trigger on one of these?
Pre-ordered from Mobicity today, they anticipate stock of the black One tomorrow and also expect enough stock to cover present orders. Naturally I'm not holding my breath for it to arrive on that timeframe, since, well, major device releases never ever seem to go quite to time.
I look forward to your review of this handset when it arrives.
As well as your normal thorough assessment, would you also please comment on the following.
Does the new 'Blink View' home page that is the centrepiece of Sense 5 have any feeds that are relevant to NZ? Can it be turned off so that you have a traditional android homescreen? My guess is I will need to continue with a third party launcher such as Apex if I don't like HTC's version of live tiles.
Since there is no ability to expand the memory, I would like to know how much storage having Zoe enabled will chew through, and on a similar track whether the reduction in raw pixels (be they 'ultra-pixels') makes for a better result or not.
Does the TV blaster function have access to NZ EPGs? Once again, my guess is no. Is it programmable, i.e. universal remote style?
