HTC Desire HD update coming

From Twitter:

European Desire HD / Desire Z users – look out for an update rolling out from today that will make your mobile experience even better. [@htc]

But it isn’t a Gingerbread update:

To clarify, the Desire Z/Desire HD update is a maintenance build based on all your feedback. Gingerbread is not a part of this update. [@htc]

I have yet to receive the update though. I’m using SingTel from Singapore. HTC has not revealed much on what the update contains.

Just got an Android

I finally gotten a HTC Desire HD as some may know. What I like about it is really the browser.

Not surprisingly the Android platform has applications that are — how shall I put it — less exciting. Compared to the Apple iPhone it has a lesser application store. Notable applications on the Android includes Gmail, Twitter and Maps.

Google did Maps very well and give it away for free. It’s the app that I am most willing to pay for but can’t.

What’s lacking in the HTC Desire HD for me is a Japanese keyboard and battery. The Desire HD can last me for a day, sometimes less all thanks to the huge screen. Sense UI is a beauty to look at but I wish users can easily uninstall applications such as Peeps and Teeter. The keyboard height is a little too tall for my liking too.

Overall I like the HTC Desire HD especially the small little features to discover of the user’s hand is holding the device and then reducing the ringtone volume. That’s a neat touch and it delights me that the phone is design with much consideration of how the user can possibly interact with the phone less apparently.

Reported sick today

For today and tomorrow — as I predicted — I will be sick. I am down with a bad flu and a sore throat. I don’t even have my laptop with me and most of my stuff are in there.

I’ve been wanting to do some stuff lately:

  1. Buy HTC Desire HD
  2. Renew my fixed internet subscription
  3. Get the Citibank credit card with the SMRT logo
  4. Buy some new shirts and socks.

Since I saw the HTC Desire HD phone last month, I’ve been wanting to get my hands on it.
