It's gonna be even faster than 2.2, which offered a huge performance boost on its own thanks to a just-in-time compiler for Dalvik, the virtual machine layer Android executes apps in. Android 2.3 adds a concurrent garbage collector the Dalvik VM, which Google says "minimizes application pauses, helping to ensure smoother animation and increased responsiveness in games and similar applications."

Now I think I made the mistake of buying a Legend instead of the Nexus One looking at what N1 users are enjoying! Here I am still stuck on 2.1!

Once your contacts are on Google, you can configure your SGS to display them. And whenever you create a new contact, create it as a google contact.
Hi,
My HTC wild fire had a very cool option.(i think it was Transfer data)

Using Bluetooth it transfered all my contacts from my Nokia 9300 in 2Min Max.
The best option i have ever seen.

Or wait for Indo-Chinese phones to come up with Android - like Fuzitel, Airfone, Lava etc.

oho,
then please advise in my case,

I use two mobile, one cdma and another gsm.

I need a handset and i am opting for dual sim so that i don't need to carry two phone.

As 3G services are going to be started within next month, naturally i should go for a dual sim + 3g phone.

As per posts in this thread, android is best OS, so i am looking for dual sim+ android 3g.

As there is no phone available in the market with my requirement, what is best option for me,

1] should i wait for some time?
2] go for andriod available in market with single sim and carry two handset?
3] go for samsung duaos dual sim and forget about 3G service?
4] any more option?

hi ,

it is only phone in the market which comes near to my requirement.
I had chosen that phone earlier costing @ 12 k,
only flaw is that it has not android OS, so i rejected it.
But it seems that i have no alternative.

so, kya karu?
samsung star duos lock kiya jaye?

Thanks in advance.
Best way of copying contacts from Symbian to Android:

1. Copy all the contacts to E71 memory card and then copy to a PC

2. Copy all those contacts to Google Contacts

3. Sync your andorid to google contacts

AND ITS DONE....

i tried the same for my X10 and its one of the ways of doing it along with keeping a backup of your contacts...
