Anyone in here using Evernote? I have just started using it and I think it's a GOOD app. My question now is if it is possible to share information between an iPhone 4 and a HTC Legend. I'm on the Legend and the missus is on the iPhone and we would like to be able to access each others notes etc via our own phone. PLEASE help! i have tried to google for answers but found nothing useful. Perhaps I'm just googling the wrong key words... :duh

Kongregate Arcade looks like it may have some addictive games on it - http://www.kongregate.com/android

It seems to package together a whole bunch of flash games. Free apk download from the link above.

SE - Gingerbread is like jumping from iOS 4.1 to 4.2 - minimal change. All apps will work no problem.

Upgrades are done when the carrier releases them and are over-the-air. If you want to root your phone (equivalent of jailbreaking) you can install the latest OS once the hacking community develops/tweaks it for your device.

Anyone here use Samsung Kies? Any idea what type of file format music needs to be to be transferred to my mobile? Ive done it before, but the current lot Im trying to transfer wont do it, just tells me the file format cannot be transferred. Also its just deleted all the songs off my phone that I had on it! Is it easier (or possible) to bluetooth the songs from my laptop to the phone?

Between those I'd go for the nexus s. Simply because of the NPC chip that will be utilized over the coming year. You'll also get updates first as its the official Google phone (unless you plan on rooting). You won't regret getting either of them just that the Nexus S is new and improved so to speak.

I'm trying to wait patiently for the Motorola Atrix, love the look of the docks; and the bluetooth keyboard, little worried that they seemed to be locked down quite heavily though; in terms of being able to root, might be a problem. How many of you think rooting is a must with Android? I have thought about shipping in from the US, is this possible with most phones, just sticking a Sim card into the phone? Would I have to pay the VAT when it passes through customs?
Thanks

PES 2011 on Android is pretty swish. Looks like they got the PES5 engine and put it on the phone. Pretty good controls considering its touch screen.

If you open your phone as a standard Windows Explorer document viewer when you plug it into your laptop, you don't need to use Kies at all. In fact I only found it useful for upgrading to Froyo and haven't used it since.

Mine transfers mp3s fine.
