I'm with 3 so assuming I don't pay by MB, I think it will be same cost as UK while I'm in Germany.

Three charge 1.25 per MB for data roaming...

What's the difference between this ^ and an iPhone?

Beyond the features Mark mentions, both the N1 and Desire have a much faster CPU, which means web browsing is snappier. They have a higher resolution screen as well (2.5x the number of pixels)

Last time I spoke to 3, they said I could use my 1gig allowance in Europe with no additional cost and I successfully did this in Italy last year.

As I previously said in my post, I'm not referring to paying per MB. If I went over my limit, then yes roaming charges would be expensive.

But anyway, I could be wrong as they might have changed this, I'll make sure to find out before I go.

Sounds like that's referring to people who don't buy an Internet allowance in advance... so when you pay per MB it's expensive. I'll ring 3 and post up.

iPhone is only a good phone if you jailbreak it, the camera is also pretty poor compared to the handsets of its competitors.

I'd much rather have a HTC phone that runs Android.

So it seems I won't be using the internet abroad but at least GPS inside the phone doesn't cost money and I can download an offline GPS map application... so should still be helpful in Germany while I walk the streets like a tourist Smile

Mark, how long before you create a mobile version of the site, or an iPhone/Touch App?...
