HTC 8S Windows Phone - Atlantic Blue
HTC 8S Windows Phone - Atlantic Blue
Offered by Direct savings
Price: 169.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Super Value., 21 July 2014
The longer you own this phone the more it becomes part of you.
While limited as to the number of Apps available the 8S does very nicely thank you. Perhaps it is not for the younger market with all the relevant gimmicks? It does however, have everything that a traveller/business user would need including an excellent downloadable diary app., good weather forecasting facilities, financial market updates et., etc.,

I was not impressed with Windows 8 OS on my ageing desk top, but on this phone it comes into its own. It has a good reception ability and manages to receive signals in areas that my previous phone could not. In short it works very well with similar processes and ability as the Windows RT series. The finger touch screen is slick and moves easily where and when required, with a solid feel to the whole instrument. Adding an expandable memory card increases the power of this smart phone and subsequent photos are of excellent quality, especially considering the cost..
I give this little phone a 5 star, simply because it would suit the older user and satisfy all their needs, including an excellent GPS should the need arise.
While SKYPE can be used, the phone does not have a front face camera, a little disappointing, but at the price understandable.
When I see my wife's smart phone I would have liked a slightly larger screen, but then again, price does place its part.
Everything about this little phone feels good and at the price is a great purchase. It came sealed and well packaged. Keep with your service provider as a smaller than the large SIMM card is required, see specs for details.

I learnt Latin at school over fifty years ago. How I wish this nook had been available then. A super intro into the classics with plenty of historic background. Thank you

5.0 out of 5 stars Total value for money, 21 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
While it will probably not compete with ipad etc., this little tablet will do everything that is asked of it. It took me 2 mins to connect the wi fi, and not only am i attached to in house network, I I also have hot spot accessibility. I am impressed with the quality, as it will compete with instruments double if not three times its value. I would advise the purchase of the leather keyboard case, but everything else is supplied. Delivery was quick and efficient, mine took only four days. If you are going to buy a tablet, why spend hundreds when this will do,... oh yes..., unlike the Chrome net-book, the tablet is Skype friendly, and also comes with a pleasant array of essential apps. The battery charger is now UK friendly. The 40.00 layout is really incidental when you think of what you are getting.

Great value for money, and while I struggled a little to balance the view, the quality of lens is outstanding.

1.0 out of 5 stars Very poor value, 2 July 2012

The buyer gets the impression they are receiving a 'leather' product. It is a very poorly manufactured plastic product which is overpriced and not worth the effort.

This little product does what it says it does, and is value for money. It needs cleanup software, and deletion of unwanted software, but this can be done with free downloads. A very good entry level android for the executive who has limited finances. There are good planners, and word processing software, free if you are prepared to look.
A good buy.

The Greatest Show on Earth: The Evidence for Evolution
The Greatest Show on Earth: The Evidence for Evolution

5.0 out of 5 stars We are honoured!, 3 Nov 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
There is a brilliance that permeates through the pages. No only does Richard Dawkins make compelling arguments, he brings the reader closer to the reality of our interdependence with nature. While the material may create conflict with the religious philosophies, so much a part of our ancestral heritage, it does leave a question begging, and perhaps unanswered! The why and how of life still remains a mystery, and perhaps it will always stay that way?
Richard Dawkins does not destroy the belief systems of our world, he only asks that we search for answers with the facts presented, and refrain from staying fixated to a world that cannot be argued on reason.
This is a thoroughly enthralling, informative and entertaining book. A must read for any who wish to research deeper into the hows and whys of our wonderful life.

4.0 out of 5 stars Gnostic Gospels, 14 Mar 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Gnostic Gospels (Hardcover)
An excellent insight into another chapter in the history of Christianity. Reading these 'omitted' gospels, one can see why the Church rejected so much when the Bible was created. I would recommend any serious religious researcher to read these gospels.
