    I still contemplating the purchase of a Htc Desire Z or HD.

    Meanwhile I am studying the many apps on Market ,
    some look so promising that I want to download them in advance ,
    but pressing the download link does nothing.

    Example here of an application that wont download :
    http://www.androidfreeware.mobi/download-trutv.html

    What am I doing wrong ? I am use to Palm where you can
    download the ''prc'' file and install it later via the sd card .

    Thanks for your help.

    The download link isn't for downloading the app to your computer, when you click it, it sends the download over the air to your phone and it downloads it.

    Fine , now I understand ....thank you for the clarification,
    some informations are quite hard to find .

    Is it to say that I absolutely need a data plan or I can download/install
    the application via Wifi ?

    The way you repay people for help is just hit the thanks button when someone helps you, then as you learn more you help others.

    I was an Android noob at one point and learned a lot from this site. I love the Android community.

    I'm still an android noob. I got my X Jan 3rd and really had no idea what to do since it was my first smartphone. But I went to sites like this and read all that I could and I am getting confident about what I am doing. I'm almost ready to start playing with ROMs.

    Just stick around and you will get the hang of things too.
