Available 25th May weekend auction?

I oso want. :drool:

On a more serious note. *Pun not intended.*

I was just beginning to psyche myself up to join the android gang with a Note II and now this. :frustrated: What's in here that's not there in the old device?

Buds, I am also thinking of ditching my iPhone and join the Samsung Note II gang. Samsung has bigger screen so it is easier to surf internet. However, iPhone is still more user friendly. Dilemma... dilemma...

Yes, the iPhone still are still the most user-friendly. There is a learning curve for Androids and the different UI offered by different providers add to the confusion. Mrs CKS, the consummate techno-phonic, just switched back to the iPhone from her Samsung Note, complaining about the difficulty of using the Note for voice calls, although she likes to browse on the Note.

If you are impatient with technology, better to stick with the iPhone. Less frustration. If you like to customise your smartphone, Android offers much greater flexibility. I particularly like the Android widgets and Android desktop, which is something the idevices lack.

Thanks, Chief, for the advice. What is UI?

Chief, why do you want an 8" device? Just curious.
(We have one 7" tablet and if I were to buy another, I'd get a 10" tablet next.)

Portability and weight. Try to hold a 10" iPad for more than a minute when you are lying in bed, and you will get what I mean :)
