I'll be the first to admit I'm no early adopter. I'm also not the most patient cat. I've been waiting patiently for Samsung to release the Player 4 stateside (was to be here in the spring) but now that Apple is sueing over said device I had to get creative. Looked for something that had most of the features of the Player 4: Android OS, GPS, music player, Wi-Fi, a good camera and at least some video. Found it all in the HTC Hero and got one cheap online.
This is my 1st smartphone (see above) and I don't forsee ever activating it considering the ease of finding hotspots. Actually, I think my LG is pretty smart, just not this smart. I'm seriously impressed! Downloaded an app called Runtastic and it's...well fantastic. Now I can run, bike, etc where ever I choose instead of taking time creating maps from mapmywalk.com and guessing. Just hit start and go! Then I remembered this thing called Pandora and downloaded that. More awesomeness! Loving my Crystal Method channel. Already got me through a bike workout tonight and I really thought I was done for the day, at least that's how I felt, but there I was sweating to the beats and enjoying it. Still looking forward to Samsung's Player 4 but now there's no hurry. There's even a cool Sparkpeople App. Rock on!
