The smartphones can't run the software that was produced for the old phones which used Java Runtime Edition (JRE) (as far as I know, anyway!). I already had my JRE phone, but was finding that many of the offers were for the smartphones, and to be fair, the current trend is very much towards smartphone apps, since that's the future, and I don't know if there are now bookies who only have a JRE app these days as opposed to having something for the smartphones (android / iPhone).

If had to choose only one device, then from the point of view of the gambling side of things, I would have to choose an Android device, since they outsell all the others by a considerable amount, meaning that the software developers are targeting those, which means more offers for that handset. From the personal point of view of using a phone/communication device, then at the moment I much prefer my c902.
Cheers CL. That makes sense.
Anyone looking to get a mobile for betting purposes. I have a brand new unused motorola atrix for sale complete with the work and play kit. Runs off android but that's about all i know as its still sealed in box.
PM any reasonable offers before i bang it on ebay.
And before people preume i'm some cap wearing phone stealing hoodlum this is just an unwanted upgrade from orange. I'm prefectly happy with my iphone 4 but just wanted to renew my contract for better terms.
Betfair app on iPhone for me
Folks, just about to finish my current mobile contract so looking to upgrade...
Need something that is good for mobile betting and the odd call and is available with my cash back company on a good deal....
My 2 choices at the moment are Orange San Francisco Black and a HTC Wildfire S Black....
San Fran is a bit cheaper than the Wildfire.....
Anyone care to share their thought's...
Performance wise you're probably looking about the same on the san fran and wildfire S, their processor's are both 600mhz. (How snappy they are in operation loading betting apps etc)
The wildfire S is the new version of the wildfire and has a screen res of 320x480 whereas the SF has a res of 800x480. This basically enables you to see more on the SF on the same page.
All in all i would plump for the SF based on it's bigger screen res and slightly bigger screen size 3.5 vs 3.2. They both run on android and there's plenty of apps that are good and compatible with betting sites, Zoombet is a great app for betfair it's super quick alot faster than the official betfair app.
Samsung Galaxy W
Had a play of this today. Priced £250ish in the three shop.
Decent phone and basically a bridge between the ace and the S2.
Damn fast at 1.4ghz, and a 3.7 inch screen.
Looking at the specs it seems comparable to the htc desire s.
Looks and feels like a decent phone and a decent price for those that want a proper sized phone with a half decent spec without paying sill money.
Post Thanks / Like
I'd go for an Android phone. Maybe because I own one and am happy with it (Samsung Galaxy S)
Now I would probably buy Motorola Defy (or Defy+) because of it's ruggedness. Although I have dropped my Galaxy S five times from pocket height to wooden floor as well as asphalt and cement and it is still working
Hows the battery life?

Anyone use a tablet for offers?
Was considering picking up a cheap android jobbie for the bigger screen and tethering it to my iphone to share data instead of going from app to app. Think for less than £€100 you can pick up one which would have a fair sized screen but be completely mobile and allow several screens/tabs open. Anyone doing this or similar? Thoughts/Feedback?
