Vodafone really keeps rockin´ my socks – Vodafone Affiliate-Master Andreas sent me a brandnew Motorola Milestone (it´s called “Motorola Droid” in the US)! Naturally I would be a typical iPhone user, but since I´m foremost a heavy user, eMailing and twittering all the time, the lack of an actual keyboard combined with my clumsy fingers really drove me away from Apple´s prime mobile product. If there would be an iPhone with a keyword, I´d immediately switch (and also probably build Steve Jobs a small shrine…). But so I ended up with the G1 phone, which I actually kinda liked a lot. Ok, it wasn´t an iPhone, and it looks & feels a lot cheaper, but the perfect integration of GMail, which is my eMail-adress of choice, made me fall in love with it. It´s basically a BlackBerry for heavy users of Google services – sweet!
But I can´t of got sick of my G1 the last couple of month, it began to develop some weird bugs, and started to just drive me crazy. Good thing I met Andreas in Las Vegas, who told me about the release of the first real Android 2.0 mobile -> the Milestone, and also promised to drop me one in the mail…. and well… I finally got it
I really gotta say, I love the Milestone! Ok, the keyboard is a lot worse then the G1´s version, since the keys are not really seperated from one another. I was pretty fast typing on my G1, but I kinda suck right now on the Milestone… but like with all new interfaces, I guess I´ll get used to it pretty fast. I love that there´s no data transfer whatsoever, since all my data (calendar, email etc.) is stored with Google and in the cloud (please don´t start with some paranoid BS). I love the new Android 2.0 OS, although it really doesn´t look all that different, but there´s definetly been some great improvements under the hood.
My buddy Shoemoney is using the Milestone (or the “Droid” for him in the US) too – head over to his blog, and read his review.
Are you already driving traffic to the No.1 mobile network in germany? If not, you should definetly contact Andreas or the guys over at Active Performance, who do an amazing job managing Vodafone´s great affiliate program!
