    What's the build quality like Paul?
    How does it feel in the hand?
    Are the contact edges sharp or rounded?
    How snappy is it during use, does it lag much?
    Finally, are you planning a good old fashioned MoDaCo ROM for it?

  2. zippyioa added a post in a topic Did you buy a Nook Simple Touch - share your adventures here!   

    I placed my order online early on 1st May directly with Nook, I got a "your order will ship soon" email a few hours later, then it all went quiet.
    I had almost given up hope until I got a despatch email late last night.
    The tracking links sent me through to UPS. Apparently it was collected from the Netherlands, then went to Belgium. If all goes to plan they should deliver to me in the UK sometime tomorrow.

    For those who are still waiting, I hope you get yours too!

    Android with the benefits of an ereader is just too tempting! :)

  4. zippyioa added a post in a topic Swype is finally freed from it's OEM / Beta shackles... too late?   

    I've been a Swype beta user since it was first released. Over the years I've tried lots of competitors, but ALWAYS returned to Swype. It's always seemed more accurate, easier to add custom words to its dictionary and, to me at least, in use it seems faster than any other keyboard.
    Despite being happy with the beta I immediately purchased the version they released today, mainly to show my appreciation to Nuance, but also because I guess the beta will probably get dropped soon.

    Just to confirm, have you successfully paid for something with it FourQ?? If so, where and with what type of card?

    I've not tried it yet, but prior to editing I was getting the "device not ready" message
    As soon as I rebooted wallet loaded without errors.

    It also had the Mastercard I previously added to the play store (this is the first time I've ever been able to add a uk card!)

    I was having the exact same problem with my stock rooted S3

    Eventually I found a site suggesting to edit the build.prop

    Copy it and save a backup somewhere first just in case, then using a text editor open and edit the following 3 lines so they read:

    ro.product.model=Galaxy Nexus
    ro.product.name=yakju
    ro.product.device=maguro

    After editing, save and reboot your phone and it should work as long as you copied the Wallet apk to the right place and added all the relevant permissions

    Looks like Google Wallet on the S3 is locked down to certain carriers according to Googles twitter post just now

    I'm getting exactly the same, and its very annoying as everything else works superbly!
    I have noticed that the users who show up with no text in their post are iPhone users.... is that the same for you?

    I assume this change will only affect new connections rather than those on existing plans?
