I have not had the chance to really use the Incredible S, but from all the latest Android phones I had the chance to play with for at least five minutes, I liked this one best. It holds very well in your hand, has great materials and a good size. You have to touch it to understand. :-)

Anyway, if you are in the market for an Android phone, consider this model.

What is the past experience with OS updates from HTC? Does HTC follow Google's Android releases and offer/provide vendor OS updates (including Sense UI) in a reasionable time or are there chances that I get stuck with the pre-installed OS version 2.2? In other words: Would I have to buy 'as-is' or with the chance to partcipate in the Android evolution (for a certain period, say 2-3 years, and including security fixes)?

Sowas macht bisher nur Apple.

Nothing heard yet about the Nokia E7, bad news?

Ludwig Deruyck, 2011-03-14

@vowe: Genau dies ist meine Beobachtung und Befürchtung. Moderne Smartphones sind Kleincomputer, und nur wenige Hersteller wie Apple, RIM und Nokia pflegen die bestehende Produktfamilie noch eine Zeit lang. Gerade das Stopfen von Sicherheitslücken wird für mich daher immer mehr zum Entscheidungskriterium. Und Google bzw. die Mobiltelefon-Hersteller vergeben hier bei Android einen möglichen Vorteilspunkt. Dann wird es evtl. doch ein iPhone werden ...

Ludwig, sort of. I don't like the E7 more than the N8. Actually I like the N8 better than the E7. I will hold off further judgement on Symbian until Nokia's releases PR 2.0 and maybe even wait for PR 3.0.

The N8 has a wonderful hardware, the E7 adds the keyboard, and loses the excellent camera.

Honestly, once you have Swype installed on the N8, who will miss a physical keyboard? It is just a step back. Try Swype and you will never want a click-ety-clack-type again. Especially since it comes with (almost) as many keyboard layouts as you might ever need. (I am using english/german/thai...)

Ist Swype nicht wie Schreibschrift? Ich bin an der Tastatur doppelt so schnell wie mit dem Kuli.

Also für mein HTC Desire gab es mit etwas Verzögerung ein Update auf Android 2.2 (habe ich aber noch gar nicht gemacht ;-) und Gingerbread (2.3) soll auch (im Sommer?) kommen.
