So I finally got myself an Android smartphone (better late than never), and find myself spending almost as much time playing around with the phone as I spend by the pc.

It was hard to type on this tiny swype thingy keyboard to begin with, but am starting to get a hang of it now.. I think.

So as the thread title says, post something, perhaps share your twitter or facebook. As long as you make the post from a phone or tablet.

I will share my twitter thing as soon as I figure out how. Lol

I recommend Opera Mini as a phone browser-it uses less data and looks good too! .
I am NEVER calling my avatars 'toons'.

Thanks, I'll probably give it a try.

So far the built-in browser seems to work pretty good though, a bit tricky zooming in on full sized websites perhaps.

Hence why I use chrome on mine, though the big screen helps too

I'm not too fond of touch screen keyboards in general. It seems like they are all made for girly twig fingers and not guy fingers. My phone is famous for making most of my texts look like Engrish at best. I miss my Sidekick 4G but it just isn't powerful enough for today's mobile use.

Now posting with Opera Mobile app, and all I can say is thanks for the tip.

This browser is way better than what came with the phone. The zooming, menus and handling in general feels very intuitive.

*Didn't even break a sweat posting this.*

Touch screen tech has come a long way since I got my first smartphone back in 2005.
My first "mobile" phone was about half the size of a regular brick.
