    I think I heard that an android software update (maybe I'm thinking about android 2.0) fixes that problem so that more apps will work with different screen sizes.
    It's nice to know that the phone price can be kept down and not slow down the phone even with htc sence on the phone.
    the screen size contributes to this (7 screens with 4 less spaces on each screen means 20 less spaces to put widgets, which sounds bad but does free up memory)
    as android continues to update the screen size will matter less and less.
    not sure when the tattoo will recieve this update (or if it already has)
    however the problem may never be completely solved

    Also: I'm pretty sure the phone has to come with the android market.
    You don't have a choice, It's built into the phone
    there is no way to get rid off it.
    your phone WILL have the android market
    maybe your thinking of something else (Like 3g service)
    without 3g service you'll still be able to enjoy the android market as long as you have wifi

    hi Sweed,
    FOA thanks for the reply... it is invaluable to newbie like me.:):)

    let's just hope Tatto will get the update :)

    regarding the Market app, i am very sure Tattoo for Malaysia is not bundled with Market app. users here are relying on SlideMe or 'rooting' (i have no idea what that means though :eek: ).

    Your welcome.
    But I've been pretty sure that the market place is built in and can't be removed.
    If you don't have it then I guess you can root your phone and then follow these instructions:
    (I know what that threads for, but this is the same basic concept)

    If you don't have the Market then your probobly missing alot of other google applications. that thread will help you get them

    ok thanks for the link. i will give it a go. :)

    fyi, i just bought a Tattoo today. so it is confirmed that there is no Market inside. but the salesman installed so many apps inside which i have not had the chance to view yet. the phone is still charging...:D

    the price for Tatto in Malaysian ringgit is RM1350
    HTC Hero is RM2350. expensive... too bad... i hate the design anyway... :D

    sweed you would be very wrong in your assumption

    really anything (program) can be removed from the phone

    and in the Malaysian release of the tattoo there is no market

    i am currently trying to find a way to get it back
