I've always known about Arka's current job.

Anyone really know what's up with him these days?

I'm considering getting a refund for my N1 and getting a Desire instead Think

Choosing between those phones has to be one of the hardest hardware decisions ever.

Just keep your N1, it's a great piece of kit.

I thought it was already dispatched?
Don't regret anything Mark, if you haven't got anything to lose then you may as well try it I guess.

Desire looks a lot better and I hate the fact N1 has a trackball, that's seriously old school.

Deciding factor could be speech-to-text and turn-by-turn Google Maps... need to know if Desire will eventually support this. Phil seems to think it has the voice feature already now but I can't find anything to back that up.

Yup, it's dispatched but I have 14 days to get full refund. HTC should hopefully collect it, reclaiming VAT/Import tax will be the complicated part but I don't mind that sort of thing.

I like the trackball, what does the Desire have? Optical trackpad?

Yup, it's like moving from ball mice to optical mice... in a year or so it will be frankly embarrassing to have and those things get dirty and break. I knew this before I ordered but more I research, Desire is looking better.

I've demoed both (trackpad and trackball that is) at the 02 shop and much preferred the trackball, just my preference in terms of functionality, trackpad looks much nicer but most of the Blackberry trackpads can be overly sensitive.

It's all about looks because you don't need the functionality with these phones, so I don't even care if track pad is annoying to use.

I'd rather have functionality, both are nice looking devices.

I have the file that's mentioned (links also on Page 2) and have just tested it. It works - kinky!

Also, there's bugger all reason to use the trackball/sensor. About the only time I do is when scrolling around form fields in the browser.

Does it use the official Google cloud technology for it? Or is it an app that does it all locally without Google?

This post comes from my htc desire via the google speech recognition stuff. i have not edited a single word and it seems to be fairly accurate. as i'm adverse looking like an idiot, i am unlikely to use this in public areas. still it is very impressive technology.
