Recommendations on a Sub 200€ Android device.

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hello all, so I came into some money recently (a friend of mine wants to buy my terribad HP iPaq for 100€). Ever since android came out I always wanted to own an android device, but sadly the only experience with smartphone OSes are Symbian, WinMo, and iOS.

Is it possible to buy an ok Android device for around 200€ on pay/go? I don't mind if I have to deal with a QVGA screen BTW .

EDIT: So far I've found the LG P500 and the HTC wildfire...however the HTC is a little bit out of my price range :s.

Get the wildfire, its got a majority of better specs, and HTC makes android incredibly awesome on the mid priced phones.
It will be worth every penny

Samsung galaxy ace is by far the best midrange android right now, it might be a bit out of your budget but mind you for a few bucks more it takes you in a completely different league compared to the wildfire and the LG.

And btw between your 2 options I will take the LG over the HTC.
