Android Phone

I am trying out the WordPress app on my android phone to see how it works.  It works pretty good.  Now I can blog from my phone which is cool – not sure how much I’ll use it because typing on a phone isn’t nearly as fast as typing on a keyboard.

So far I’m pretty happy with my LG Optimus V from Virgin Mobile.  The phone was $150 and the accessories added another $50.  I like that I can keep up with my personal email and business email from the phone and Facebook is nice too.  Blogging is just a small plus.

My only real gripe so far with the phone is the battery life.  I’ve been trying out apps like JuiceDefender and GreenPower and I do notice an improvement in battery life.

The only thing that seems strange to me is that you don’t exit apps.. you just back out of them and then they seem to keep running so you have to run some other software to kill running apps – strange.

Update:   The LG Optimus V with Virgin Mobile has major problems with 3G not workingUnfortunately, it is not being resolved in a timely manner by Virgin Mobile.
