    “Hopefully they don’t take over the device with their useless bloatware”

    LOL! You know, we know and everyone knows that is exactly what will happen!

    • *sigh* Yeah we do. Well, hopefully it’s 19 apps like on the Desire.

    The specs on Mobicity say it isn’t NextG compatible – which aint great for a smartphone.
    But, the SonyEricsson website says it is “UMTS/HSPA 850” compatible – I understand that this is what Telstra calls NextG.
    Anyone have any idea if the ones Telstra will sell will be NextG compatible?
    Or is this just a mistake on the MobiCity site?

    • There are two versions of the device U20a and U20i.

      Telstra will be selling the U20a which is 850/1900/2100MHz UMTS, which will work on NextG fine.

      The one you are looking at on MobiCity is U20i which is 900/1700/2100MHz, which will work on all other carriers in Aus.

    Are you kidding? Yes Telstra usually adds a fair bit to the branded devices, but it’s usually stuff that it pretty handy…

    * My Place – access various Telstra services with two clicks (you don’t know how many times a day my family and I use this!).
    * RMC – browse and view Mobile Foxtel like on a “normal” television, complete with interactive ticker (show “on-now/on-next”, and allowing quick channel changes).
    * Scan Code – read QR (Quick Response) codes.

    Heck, I’m disappointed when my new phones DON’T have these applications (something that is all-too-common with regards to “RMC”…)!

      I’d say you’re in the minority there.

  • Hey just thought i would say something.. This is the third time that I’ve visited your blog in the last 2 days looking for completely unrelated things. Spooky or what?
