And also, what is a good, stable and fast version of Android that you have running on this phone? I tried Android on my TP2 (Gingerbread) and was really impressed with it, but the CPU really wasn't up to it so I switched back to WM6.5. Hope someone can give me some real user experience thoughts.
PS. Also, when the keyboard is slid out, is it totally flat to the screen, or does the screen raise a little? I canīt seem to find good information on this aspect.
I came from the TP2 and my mytouch digitizer just died so I looked at what phones I could upgrade to and decided there is nothing out there comparable so I'm sticking with the mt4gs.
You will miss the keyboard tilt but not having that allows it to be smaller and lighter so it's not as much of a brick in your pocket.
You will also miss the 5th row and the arrows on the keyboard but you get used to function shifting for the numbers. Having to copy paste with your finger on the touch screen sucks when you used to be able to do it on the keyboard. There are always concessions but this was a good move for me and it worked. There are other phones out there with 5 row keyboards (only a couple) but they aren't HTC and I think a couple of them are Verizon so they are CDMA. There was only one that I can remember that was an AT&T phone which I would have had to get and then unlock to work with t-mobile.
