90% of any apps should work fine as long as the dalvik engine is ported ok, and I'm sure Intel have done a good job in that. The issue is anything that uses machine code for speed, and things like cyanogenmod.

Most people won't even know it's a Intel processor.


That might be true for Apps. But the drivers and kernel patches etc will need to be ported to Medfield (the intel Atom CPU) and remember this is a Generation One Intel Mobile CPU...
Pricewise the one on sale in India costs quite a lot (£190 or £240 from memory) so the Orange version might cost more than the Monte Carlo. Having said that Orange are Selling the HTC Windows phone for £100 PAYG with a £1.50 unlock on ebay that has a good spec and aluminium body. - Shame about the OS ;)

I can imagine from a devs point of view it might be a pain in the arse but if intel / google do a good point intergrating it into the sdk then it may just be a point of just changing a flag during compilation. http://www.android-x86.info/ has got a bunch of info for the curious.
The HTC HD7 is only £100? Can't find it on their site so must just be clearing stock.

You are right clearing stock IN STORE ONLY nothing on line. Windows Phone 7 has issues as you cannot add memory via SD card, even though some phones have SD card slots ?!! This unit ships with 8Gig only so you cannot upgrade. Folk who have tired report problems even with high end branded MicroSD cards. Not sure why Microsoft are shooting themselves in the foot. The release rate for patches and updates is really slow. Makes the G300 sound issue patch fiasco look fast! 9 months + for minor fixes to the camera. Also Microsoft have not confirmed these pre apollo phones will be upgradeable so the Mango units might be cul-de-sacs but for around £109 and the cheap unlocks via ebay (£1.50!!) then it might be a good buy for a solid bit of kits with a new OS.

There is no issue receiving calls I think he was exaggerating the issue. I've not missed any calls or texts prior to installing the leaked rom although I did sleep through one alarm out of about 11.


Do you know how to change the alarm timeout? Its really annoying that it times out after a minute.

I use DX Clock. Great app with loads of options.

Reg Medfield, Intel are trying to create market share. If its too expensive or at a price point of similar phones, people will go for the known manufacturer. It is also made by an unknown manufacturer. Benchmarks look good although it is an old chip architecture.

Guys, this thread is going horrendously off topic!

Can we please just stick to the U8815 audio

on the speaker issue. I remember there was an issue with the ZTE Blade/Orange San Fran's when they came out didnt they.

Im surprised there isnt an update prompt when you get it new, as the speaker issue now seems to be fixed...I guess it could be something to do with Vodafone there I guess

Yes. Something in the update sets the speaker volume. The vodafone stock rom does not have this instruction

Unofficially yes, if you install different software than what the phone came with. Huawei are releasing an official fix tomorrow (so they say)

If you are not with Vodafone any more, will you receive this update through your current provider any way? (GiffGaff in my case...)

Good question. You may not get an automatic notice but you can do settings > about phone > online upgrade
