Question New to Tattoo!! Need some tips....

hey all, I just purchased a new tattoo unlocked cause i lost my htc hero last week, which my damn insurance will not cover (long story) it was stolen but since i put it down at a cash desk, they wont cover it.

anyway i loved the hero but i needed a anroid phone which was less expensive so i got a good deal on a semi new device. my question is

1. is their a update i need to get?

2. is 2.1 update officially out yet?

3. also i heard not all apps work on the tattoo, is that tru?

i have purchased a app which is the driving thoery test app, i hope ill be able to get it on the tattoo.

i sure well hope i can set my own wallpaper & stuff, i hope the basic stuff works on this phone. it looks like a real compact phone compared to the hero

now i should get the phone by weekend so i want to update the whole thing, not sure if its be done already, ill soon find out but any pointers will do.

cheers

Tattoo is still unfortunately stuck with Android 1.6 and due to this we cannot use Bluetooth for file transfer (this thing is making a lot of users very upset).

Having the Tattoo a smaller screen resolution compared to the majority of Android phones, there are apps that will not work.

Also the camera is quite crappy (no auto-focus, no flash) so it is not possible to read barcodes.

This is where iam so confused..cause theirs some people say all apps work but you gotta install them as apk files etc. some say it dont at all...i hope the update comes soon, as i dont feel like rooting the device. i lost my htc hero 2 weeks ago and it was rooted, runs so smooth so i had to purchase a cheaper phone in the meantime. didnt feel like splashing out on another hero. heard the tattoo is great thoe so i look forward to finding out how well it works. cheers
