androidbruceyes 01:50
valorieand the lack of a keyboard isn't a lack?01:51
androidbrucei used it the day it released01:51
valorieI should have known01:51
androidbrucewell I suppose if you aren't used to an onscreen keyboard it would be tough 01:51
valorieI've not used a smartphone, 01:51
androidbrucebut that's many users01:51

valorieall ARM, right?01:53
androidbruceof course, all android devices are arm based01:53
valorieok, this is all new language01:53
androidbruceyeah 01:53
valorieI hear people talk about ARM, but have ignored it up to now01:53
valorieI guess i should pay attention01:53
androidbrucewell in all reality you would not really need to know that it's arm based as an end user01:54
