    So I have just bought 100 quids worth of the iHome Android landline

    http://www.wirefresh.com/binatone-d...ones-almost-sexy/comment-page-1/#comment-4909

    Seems a bit slow and unimpressive at the moment to be honest...If I were you I would wait until someone makes a better one..which they should, it's a great idea

    One reason for getting it was to rapidly get numbers into it without typing them all in. (I mostly use the mobile for business but I have a landline anyway for my ISDN voiceover recording studio and I hate paying mobile charges for all those 0800 or 0845 or 0870 numbers...)

    But even though I can email myself a VCF address card the phones email reader cannot open the VCF file...grrrr

    Any ideas as to how I can get addresses from my mac/iphone to the iHome?

    I am enjoying learning the Android OS...but

    “The unit uses Android 1.6. This cannot be upgraded due to the limitations of the chipset installed.”

    Well, it is a *Binatone* product! Can the thing access the Android Market?

    after a long time..yes indeed I can access the Android market!

    is there a magical app that will help me out?

    Can you not export all your iPhone addresses into GMail and then read that on the phone?

    sounds plausible!

    I have set up a new gmail account...will export iphone addresses to that...

    and then we'll see

    thanks mate

    The real strength of Android is the google synchronisation with your contacts, calendars, rss reader etc.

    For example, I heard a reminder go off on my mobile upstairs the other day. Couldn't be arsed to go upstairs to silence it, but as I was logged on downstairs I just altered the reminder in google calendar and silenced the damn thing without moving an inch!
