It astounds me that Google took the easy way out and didn’t make a version of the phone for LTE networks. No one likes the fact that the carriers (Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, & T-Mobile) really hold the power in the U.S. cell phone market, but you can’t just ignore the reality for a high-end phone.
Essentially Google & LG should have taken a cue from Samsung; make versions that work for each carrier and then sell their own unlocked versions. This is rather disheartening. Fortunately, I buy phones every two years — and thus I’m waiting for the next edition of the Nexus.

I don’t know if I will ever change to a Portland area code (mostly 503, some 971.) Maybe when I change cell phone providers after my contract is up.
(Verizon wants to force me onto tiered data unless I pay full market price for a phone. After the way my Galaxy Nexus was pretty much behind the curve of HSPA+ models on AT&T & T-Mobile, no thank you, Big Red.)

I mean, it’s a Nexus so it fascinates me, but I’m not breaking contract for a phone with a max of 16 GB storage and no micro-SD slot. I’ve not owned my current phone for a year yet. There will be another Nexus before I need a new phone. However, the wireless charging orb is freaking awesome.

I think this is my next phone in a month and a half. I’ll be watching the announcement and unveiling on YouTube like a big dork in 15 minutes.

Tumblr Android app verdict.

FIX THE FREAKING PHOTO POST FUNCTION ALREADY.

The rest of it seems nice and functional. However, getting a force close when I try to post a picture is incredibly annoying and defeats most of the app’s purpose for me.

staff:

The Tumblr Android release has been getting some pretty good press!  I’ve also been seeing the odd issue cropping up here and there.

I wanted to let everyone know that we’re working on it. Expect a patch soonish. :-)

about time y’all did some work on it. Reserving judgment, because I’m downloading the new version now.

Please, oh please be true. If this thing comes with stock Android 4.0 and has 4G capability, it’s my new phone when my upgrade kicks in come November.

Okay, the Tumblr android app is trash

mattgorman:

It’s so much easier to just use it through the browser.

it works for basic stuff like posting photos from the phone but otherwise it’s shite and needs a total re-vamp.

TUMBLR STEP YO MOBILE GAME UP.

I wish I could mash the mobile versions of TweetDeck & Seesmic together.

TweetDeck’s notification system is better and its “Me” column lets you see every re-tweet, response, comment on an FB status, liking of your FB updates or comments, and keeps it all in one unified column.

Seesmic lets you actually post to FB pages, has auto-complete for Twitter usernames, lets you change your profile pictures, Twitter trending topics, and shows the full list of who’s following you. Also, its developers seem to update more.

Someone please get their shit together and make the ideal app here.

I’m addicted to this game now.

Android 2.2.

My OG Droid got the update last week and everything became wonderfully zippy. I’m still trying to figure out what all has changed, although I must admit it’s nice that Android has finally figured out how to attach Google Voice functions to any Bluetooth headset with this update.
