Day 1 – Quick Impressions of the #telstradesire

Ok…. this is one of those quick and dirty blog posts that show quick impressions only…. and not a great deal more.. but is a way of me putting these thoughts down before they get lost after using the device for a while.


  • It feels nice in your hand.
  • It feels fast, but then given less than 10 years ago this was the fastest processor for home PC’s it should :-).
  • It works…  one of those you can pull it straight out of the box and hit go kind of devices, which it should be.
  • It doesn’t work… the app store whilst easy to use still just doesn’t have that slick ordering system.. if you know what you are looking for it is fine.. but hunting can be tedious and there doesn’t seem to be a sense to the order of things in the store.
  • I have fat thumbs… the onscreen keyboard is just tedious still… I’m sure it is just me coming from a non touch screen device but I am having trouble typing on it.
  • Flash 7 video means that I can watch all the ABC News stories… which for me is a huge win. (and with Flash 10 coming soon an even bigger win)
  • Charging from USB is kind of a last resort really… unless you are going to tether the device for the day.. plus it into power.
  • Having to do a firmware update to get the GPS working well that kind of sucked… one hopes that the general public shouldn’t have to go through this.
  • 2Gig SD Card… well that is a joke… it is a step down for me from my 8gig storage on my N95-8gb.  Sure it is upgradable.. but why should I have to.  Your average Joe public is going to see a phone with 2gig of storage and a phone with 8gig of storage and say that the other phone has more “RAM”.
  • The SD Card is tedious because you have to remove the battery to access it.
  • The Battery is Removable.. another battery is on my list to buy next week… if you are going to power use this device all day you’ll kill it… so more $$$
  • I already worry that I am going to break the back just accessing the SD Card, HTC NEED to make this a slot.
  • I miss my dedicated buttons on my Nokia for the Camera on the side.
  • I miss my TV out option that my N95-8gb had… sure it was only analogue quality but it was better than nothing.
  • I’d like a front facing camera please…
  • The headphones with mic work very nice.
  • Once I get my head around tweaking all the Scenes better I’m going to love them…
  • The GPS is really good.  Very fast to get a lock on the first time, very impressed with that.

Now comes the real test… 4 days holiday and lets see what the phone does and more importantly whether I can get used to it…

First impression is that is a very nice device…

and I’ve created a new Flickr Set here for photos from the Device
