I am not a mobile phone connoisseur - in fact I think I don't like them - but I do like the android ones a little! In fact I think gingerbread is the way to go. So I am a mobilephobic and not too savvy about them. It is fair to say I joined here to pick all your brains rather than give opinions and insights. So why would I prefer android OS? What are the advantages?? If I get a phone operating on say Symbian 3 will I be able to ask about it on this forum or would I need to join another? So many forums and so little time!!
