You know that mobile web 2.0 is finally mainstream when over 50% of a standard issue PC magazine is devoted to mobile computing and mobile web 2.0!
- e.g. November 2010 issue of NZ PC World http://www.pcworld.co.nz
- Also breaking stories in NZHerald and Newsweek feature mobile:
- How the Cell Phone Is Changing the World – Newsweek http://bit.ly/c3bgdG
- Smartphone wars in time for Christmas – Technology – NZ Herald News http://t.co/xSHlvxc
The Android OS 2.2 update is now available for the HTC Desire in NZ – just installed via wifi directly to HTC Desire. You need 25MB Ram free to install, although the update does seem to free up a little Ram after the install.
The update brings several obvious new features:
- 3G to WiFi Hotspot app
- Graphics appear better
- Better quality Video recording
- And other stuff I haven’t found yet
Definitely worth the update, and nice that the update was painless. I’m liking Android – apart from the dodgy adds you get in some free apps.
