I bought a couple of apps on market, but for all the apps, the status is "order pending". Over 24 hours have passed.

Is anyone else facing this issue?

Yes sir. I understood my stupidity immediately after I posted in panic! see, how serious I am with my battery issue!

The code does nothing new. The spare parts of CM7 have the same functionality.

Yes! you are correct. This was the first purchase and hopefully I get the refund. Can somebody confirm please?

Somehow,I seem more addicted to :

1. Greedy Spiders
2. Drag Racing
3. Raging thunder

Angry birds is addictive and I managed to play Angry birds some 32 levels..then Rio and Seasons 2011..

I have not restored trackid in about 10 installs, but soundhound?Always.
Found soundhoun to be able to catch hummed/whistled tunes much more than trackid.

But hey, that could just be my humming/whistling!!

totally. greedy spiders is crazy fun. will try out the other games as well.

I downloaded this reckless racing game today and I am sure to uninstall it - no fun. i mean what's the point of an android game if it needs onscreen controls to steer - that's what the accelerometer is for, no? Simply crap. Now downloading asphalt game data.

That ways Defy's ginormous internal memory is really useful. of the 1.3GB available to user, i moved in 2 days from 300mb used to 630 MB used courtesy this sale

EDIT: Just tried Flick Golf. I LOVE it. Ideal game to pass time - super addictive and technical as well. BUY BUY BUY - trust me on this one!!

Okay... Updated angry birds seasons. Cannot play without data connection. But ads are not showing up.
Btw trackid available in Sweden market is good. Soundhound in the previous versions was not good may be I should try latest one.

The moto RAZR is a good option too,or you could wait for the galaxy nexus

I somehow did not like Samsung Galaxy S II as much as I liked the Note (probably because it may get replaced soon). Moto Razr looks awesome though, I'll try to get my hands on one to see in person this weekend, I hope Croma stocks Moto Razr.
What models in HTC do you suggest I consider?

Dont worry about size and fitting in pocket. I dont find any issues with its portability.

Two hand operation is must, but tell me which touch phone dont need that. While with other you can do some basic functions via one hand, but majority of time you end up using both hands. With Note you always have to use both hands.

That massive 5.3" screen is damn good and resolution is just excellent, I can actually do a lot of stuff on it.

S Pen, S Memo, S Planner are very handy features, though would be used less but there are conditions where you need them.

I have tried opening and checking out the Office apps (Doc, Spreadsheet, Presentations) and believe me, Note is very much capable of letting you view them.

I do not like to use Bluetooth much, so that is my ONLY major concern with Note, otherwise I loved the display and the device. Apart from that, a lot of my phone usage is Emails and Text/Internet as against the calling part and Note serves that purpose perfectly. Probably, need to get a hands on on Notes a couple of times more and then decide.

Well if you want the best manufacturer STOCK experience.nothing beats SENSE,on that note check out the sensation XL and the EVO 3D

I think the motorola RAZR is a brilliant package.it has the Super AMOLED that the S2 is famous for with a QHD resolution ( the SII has a lower WVGA resolution) and a much better build/form factor.non removable battery is a bummer though
