Learning the Shift and Android
So I switched over from a Sprint Pre to the Shift a few weeks ago, but have only really settled in with the new Shift for the last 1-2 weeks (it took a while to resolve some issues I'd had).
Now that the Shift is working the way its supposed to, I have to say that I'm really enjoying it.
I greatly miss Web OS, just about every day, but I'm really liking the Shift quite a bit. The hardware is great along with the phone being zippy/quick and all of the apps for just about anything imaginable.
A few things I've been wondering about, though.
1. Is there a new OS, an upgrade, we're supposed to be getting sometime soon? If so, what is it expected to improve? I'm a bit uninformed, still, about the different Android OS's, their differences and what that means to me and my Shift.
2. With my Palm Pre, I was a regular forums lurker over in Pre-Central and every day, there were a lot of posts with helpful information. One of the differences I'm finding, here, is there appears to be much less posting. Then I realized that the amount of posts are perhaps comparable, but that there are so many Android devices that the posts are spread out quite a bit into different sections for different devices. So, in looking around for helpful information, should I be looking at the posts in the Evo section? Do the things posted in there apply to those of us here with the Shift?
3. Which leads me to wonder about the Evo versus the Evo Shift. I'm aware of the basic differences (i.e., size, processor, camera, keyboard) but I'm wondering whether for all intents and purposes, if they're basically the same aside from those hardware differences. I have no interest in switching. I'm merely wondering.
I appreciate the thoughts and information. Thank you.
