Hey guys!

I know some of you guys remember me. I just converted over to the android platfrom. I'm not missing my zaurus anymore. It' modded with cyanogen mod and rooted of course.

The only thing I miss from my zaurus is the ability to write small notes on the image application with my stylus. Other than that, I don't miss my zaurus. It's starting to collect dust. the phone does it all even bluetooth audio to a bluetooth speaker system. I currently have 200 games and growing, movies around 50 of them full length, office application, awsome picture taking device...My medical ency and drugs fron unbound medicine........it covers it all.gps navigation and google maps well and beyond what i expected. you guys have the phone yet?

What "the phone" are you talking about?

My wife has an HTC hero. It's ok, but I can't stand trying to type on the touch screen. And lost phones have gone cheap and used capacitive touch screens which meant they don't work with a stylus or in very cold weather.

If I got a smart phone it would be Android but it would have to also have a physical keyboard (like the my touch slide). I wouldn't dare touch an iPhone appliance. With the amount of control Apple has over their products they should be paying ME to use them.

I'm also not sure about a few things Android does though. Can anyone explain any fixes for this? One issue I have is if I open a couple of programs and switch around to something else, it seems to auto close the other programs so when I go back to them they are "reset" and anything I was doing on them is lost. It seems I have far less control over things on Android than I do on the Zaurus or a PC.

I have kinda given up on getting a smart phone. There hasn't been one that would fulfill my requirements, though the N900 comes close but lacks usb host.

My guess is that newer versions *should* be able to handle this problem better, I found the following article to be quite informative, although it does not say which version she is talking about.
