It seems that my anti-Android rants have come back to haunt me like roadside Chili. Get the scoop on my first day with my new Android phone.

Quick, someone call the FBI. Ken Hess has been replaced by an alien being!!!


Enjoy the phone! And the camera!

All these devices are "good" just a question of degree. Regardless of the vendor, they beat having to carry a brick or pocketful of quarters!
It will be interesting after using a Windows phone and an iPhone for so long. It's a bit different but we'll see.
I expect it will be like moving from a Wintel PC to a Mac. Similar, but different.

Like driving a car in the UK. Same idea, just on the other side.

Have fun with it. Maybe now you will be removed from the Android hit list :)
Ya i was one of the ones who scolded you for "never an android thingy" article. You can ask me a few questions if you want before you write another review. Remember, Android is not iPhone. You can do much more with it, but you have to know how to unleash its full potential. If you use Gmail on Android 4.0, you will never be able to go to another phone. Ever :-)
+Hamid Marc Afsharieh I am glad you posted or I wouldn't have seen this!

+Ken Hess has come to the dark side! If you are looking for some good free apps to get started with I have a few that I would recommend. You can find my quick reviews at or full reviews on the site I write for Like Hamid said, the Android phones have a lot more capabilities than your Windows or iPhones did but take a little more work sometimes to get it to that potential. I would like to see what you think about it in a month or so.

Whatever you do, don't use an Ice Cream Sandwich phone until the updates are available for your phone. Seriously! It will make you see the fragmentation! :) If you are happy with GB then just use it. You won't know what you are missing. Plus, when you do get there it will change your whole perception of what Android can be.
Thanks. If anyone else has app suggestions I would be glad to have them.
Yes, Dimitry, I just paired with my Apple Wireless KB. Awesome.
I guess it's just my dumpass not knowing what u want to know about. My suggestion is 2 right ur own articles.
Anha, you seem nice. Logon to and find you a nice boy or girl or whatever you're into and be happy. Don't let what ol' Ken says on ZDNet give you so much heartburn.
I have that effect on people. And, this was a positive look at my new phone. Just think what a bad review would have gotten me.
I don't understand what you're trying to say.
Hm...  Well, Ken. I think that maybe you should never say never. Maybe replace those words with, "I highly doubt that I'll ever..." ?
