you still happy with it Linoman?

It is alright but I do find the device buggy at times, not to mention the battery life decreases with time. I would rather get the Moto Defy

I just went back to compare the MB525 review(Defy), and i see the RB, HD phone scored higher,even though user opinion scored the Defy higher.

I see GSM areana rated the DEFY a tad higher then the RBM HD.

Suppose its all down to different tastes ,but i prefer the Defy due to getting way more love and attention internationally, due to being so darn tough and highly overclockable!

Been using it as dev phone, and no problems here so far. Not everyday you find a cheap stock Froyo handset that doesn't break when you drop it.

I got the Defy over this thing. Overclocked Defy to 1.2Ghz stable. Big improvement in homescreen/menu thanks to OC. Battery is good too.

Stupid Q....
How many Android people here have more than 1 Android phone?

I know I have 3 But I thought I was the only one that was nuts

There's one big difference right there with Android vs iPhone. Find me an iPhone user with more than one iPhone (that isnt broken) :p
Android rocks.

I must say, i'm finding it TOUGH to beat the original G1 keyboard... anyone happy with a keyboard model?

Seems decent enough, especially considering the price.

Desire Z has quite a good keyboard IMO, though I've become very used to the Gingerbread onscreen keyboard.

I got the Defy and have already updated it to Android 2.2 and rooted it. VERY happy with the device, makes my HTC Hero look like a 3310, or worse, an iPhone :)

Here is XDA's Defy Wiki, everything you need to know to get Custom ROMS, rooting and even overclocking. Some people have reported getting the CPU up to 1.4GHZ!
