Walking with Android 2.3.6 on LG E400

And this week end, I’m gifted a brand new LG E400 which is powered by Android 2.3.6 . Coming from the world of Maemo 5 , ie Nokia’s N900 , personally I miss a lot of things.There’s no physical keyboard to type-in and I’m not comfortable with their built-in keyboard.

OMG! there’s no CONTROL key in the left corner of keyboard lay out. As a programmer[?] , how can I run my life without Ctrl+C and Ctrl+V ?

They said it’s powered with Kernel 2.6.38 but there’s no console to command the phone.I hate it at most.

I’m missing the High resolution video playback and It ask me to accept the DivX (VOD) licence to play some proprietorial video formats.I can’t read the beyond three pages of their legal licence as the font size doesn’t good for my vision.

Most of all , there’s no task manager or Dashboard as like Maemo .

Yet to verify all the features of the operating system once I connected to internet.My mobile service provider Vodafone charge me INR98 for 2GB/month , which is not enough for Maps and Voice. I think VoIP and Video Chat might struggle with the 2G bandwidth.

And thanks for the contributors , those donated INR1250 for my mobile.As I’m donated a new mobile, the donors are refunded with their donations. Thanks for your support.

I’ll update my experiences without mobile connectivity for the past three weeks in a new blog.
