Like OMG guys lets talk about this some more. I'm pretty sure I wasn't using WiFi.
it cant be done son. IPhone wins this round. go home. stop taking shrooms.
IT CANT BE DONE!!!
disclaimer: please dont take anything i said above personally. Thank you.
But I thought...CDMA was superior!? You mean the iPhone is better for realsies?
The iPhone on AT&T's network is kinda like a Formula One car on icy roads. I'll take a DROID on Verizon's network anyday. In fact . . . I did.
it's too bad thats the only thing the iphone can multitask...phone and web. just today i was multitasking intensely texting, browsing 3 web pages and swapping between them while they loaded, pandora, and using torrent fu to add/manage my torrents. and i got one call which paused everything i answwered it, turned on wifi while i was on the phone, and went back to what i was doing while talking (well minus pandora lol)
just me but i'd rather be able to juggle all that rather then just talk and web.
What does it matter if it can't? I don't browse the web while on phone calls. I DO however browse the web while other apps on my phone, and the iPhone CAN'T do that.
It was so bad teh kitteh did it him self in.
I surf the web all the time when on a call. My brother calls me all the time asking me to look up something for him. WiFi is so ubiquitous that I nearly always have a connection.
LOL that gif is awesome
Hey!!! That's my Colt 1911!!! Stainless and everything. ShaWeet!
know whats really cool that iphone might nevr have and we already have?
Full flash support. I was using my eris today and thought "i wonder if i can
play games on it on addictinggames". well i tried it out and it works perfectly,
i played sniper assasin 3. it was really laggy though.
ok , whaaaaaa? full flash .....did i miss something
The Droid Eris has flash lite support.
Flash 10.1 should be coming to all Android devices sometime within the next couple of months.
What exactly is the difference between flash lite and 10.1?
One serious question. How do you folks do it in an CDMA network where you can't be online and making or receiving voice calls the same time. The modern smartphones like Androids, iPhones, Win Mobile and co are always online (at least mine is). So are your Droids not always online? How is it with push mail then?
usually it's like lower versions of flash like flash 8 but it's not complete as i understand it
This is why Android is superior on TMO! At least in New England. FAST AS ****. Multi-tasking, I can text while I drive, shoot video while at a stop light, make phone calls with my eyes closed. Its all in there.
You cannot use Data and Voice simultaneously. For example, I cannot surf the Internet while talking to my friend. Yes, e-mails will not come through while I'm on the call as well. However, when I hang up the phone, any website I was logged onto prior will still be open and any e-mails that were queued will then deliver. This is a minor issue for me.
Sounds like the typical driving experience in New York..oh wait you said shoot VIDEO..nevermind.
A phone being 'always' online does not mean its always pulling data or having data pushed to it.
For 'smart phones' the tower will signal the phone there is an incoming voice call. The phone then suspends data operations and presents the voice call. Once the voice call is dealt with it resumes data operations.
New england?? Maybe Eastern MA and some southern parts, but western MA has horrible tmo service, GPRS is normal and Edge is like finding gold. Forget about Vermont, NH, Maine because your SOL in 90% of them. I had Tmo for about 1 month and it was horrible, I would lose service if I moved my G1 a few feet one way or the other. No 3G at all until I got to Leominster, or Amherst, and it was slow at best (highest speed I ever got was 1.6mbps DL) but the majority of the time I was stuck with GPRS and maybe some Edge, if nothing at all. Had to unlock it and go with AT&T, no 3G was a even trade off for actually having service. Now I enjoy Verizon, getting 2.4mbps DL all day and never losing 3G even in the back ass woods like rt 202 to Amherst.
