Dan is a die-hard Android fan. Some might even call him a lunatic. He's been an Android user since Android was a thing, and if there's a phone that's run Android, chances are he owns it (his Nexus collection is second-to-none) or has used it.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.

Not just Telstra is a joke, the way the release of this device is handled is one too.
Announced globally in August, again officially released in Australia in November, yet, no carrier actually seems to have it in stock, only grey imports. As much as I love Samsung and a Note 2, announcing something without availability just to annoy the fruity company seems a poor strategy.


And Telstra, sometime next year, what a joke.
