During a previous post, I had instilled the virtues of the HTC Desire smartphone as one of my gadgets of choice for my upcoming Road Trip in September 2011, when I’ll be cycling the 3471km route of the 2011 Tour de France. I have since upgraded my smartphone to the Desire’s bigger brother, the HTC Desire HD.
Although it is a step up with some quite obvious improvements, there are also some let downs. I doubt if these let-downs will affect owners coming straight into the Android platform, but anyone upgrading from the original HTC Desire will, I think, probably feel the same way.
During my upcoming Road Trip in September 2011, I’ll be cycling the 3471km route of the 2011 Tour de France, without a team car or any other assistance. During what some might consider a Mad Adventure, I’ll be reliant on a few pieces of technology, one of which will be my smartphone, the HTC Desire.
To be more precise, I would consider the current run of Smartphones as small Internet enabled touchscreen computers with the ability to make and receive phone calls. When I say Smartphones, I’m talking about the Iphones and the ones using Google’s Android operating system, such as the HTC Desire.
