    if you don't understand what the radio does, don't change it. you'll probably end up bricking your phone

    Gingerbread basically just adds a nicer UI, a much improved keyboard, and lots of other little features (one I really like is the battery graph that's built-in).

    A radio is a separate firmware that controls stuff like wi-fi, GPS, network, etc. They're kinda "permanent", as in flashing a different ROM won't change the firmware. Lots of ROMs mention recommended radio firmware to use with that ROM, so it's strongly recommended you just stick with them. However, it doesn't hurt to use other radios
    I see, thank you very much :)

    Elaborate? As far as I can see it's pretty much the same process as flashing a custom rom

    And most important: It the conditional garage collector is now a concurrent garbage collector. This will get rid of the lags you get sometimes when the GC was running.

    Radios are sort of like the phone's drivers. It is the same process as flashing a ROM but some people do it via Android SDK.

    HTC Desire, or HTC Legend? I'm leaning towards the Desire but I want your opinion. Is the Desire more bulky? Does the higher resolution and better specs make up for it?

    Get a phone for now. I suggest HTC Desire. Desire HD if you need a big screen.

    The Legend's only advantage is the price, if that's not a problem get the Desire.

    But I'm not looking into spending a ton of money on a tablet. I have about $250 to spend and don't really need to wait for 3.0 overpriced ones if I can just get an older (but just as capable) tablet that I can upgrade which brings me back to the question:
    Say if I get a tablet with 2.2 installed. Can I buy it, then upgrade it to 2.3 and then on as updates come out? I read there might be a limit based on specs off of what I've read on Amazon. Apparently on some tablets its dangerous to upgrade yourself? or is that just for people who have no idea how to install Operation Systems?
    I'm not looking to do major stuff on this. Just play some games with friends, watch movies, videos, surf the web and such and whatever the Marketplace has to offer that I will use.

    actually... after review the list of tablets I was interested in, I had to cut a ton after reading reviews or seeing they were coming from China. Right now I am only really interested in one and thats the Advent Vega and its either not released yet or incredibly hard to find. And the Archos 101. so I think I will wait till 3.0 tablets come out.

    yea so just nevermind my posts. that was a bad mistake on my part. I should have researched better to realize theres hardly any quality ones out.

    Paypal has been losing trust online for a while now sadly, their usage fees and account freezing can't be helping.

    You could always run a flashlight app in the background while you record, I did that on my D1

    Definitely, the Desire has a way better resolution. I once held both in my hands at once. While you can see every pixel on the Legend, the desire resolution is so high that you barely see any pixel. But the legend is better looking.

    Get a phone for now. I suggest HTC Desire. Desire HD if you need a big screen.
    Another alternative with a better screen would be the Nexus S. It's also better looking than the normal Desire.

    Waiting for a 3.0 tablet is the right choice, yes. It offers so much more good software quality and the tablets using 3.0 in the future will also be better and slim compared to the current one. In my eyes, nearly all current Android Tablets are prototypes because Android wasn't really developed for tablets so far (resolution etc). That's where 3.0 will be perfect for.

    I think Cyanogen uses ADW as a default launcher. Dunno how much memory it uses, too lazy to check out. But I can guarantee that memory is not a problem, even with many apps running.

    One thing I've noticed is how, on xPiano, I can only press 2 keys at the same time ("multi-touch") whereas on my girlfriend's iTouch you can press 3 (maybe 4, I can't remember)

    Is that a fault of the app? Or just the Desire's hardware?

    It's not the apps fault, as I can use 4+ "keys" on my Galaxy S.
