I have a phone on pre-order. (Because it's not been released yet.)

Today, I note that the advertised price has dropped £40. And on checking my order, that price drop also applies to existing orders. This is good of the supplier, because it saves me cancelling and reordering at the new price.

Also, the sun is shining.

Last night, I booked a hotel room for the 27th of May, in Oxford, being the Friday night before the Write Fantastic do. Anyone here fancies meeting up for dinner or whatever, perhaps at Chutneys or similar?

Yay for prices going down :)

Which phone did you go for in the end?

The Galaxy S 2 - big screen, Gingerbread, 8 MP camera, able to do full HD video, pretty much everything the Nexus S has but with an SD slot as well. I kept looking at everything else, and kept coming back to this one. The only downside (apart from it being pretty expensive) is it's not out for another 4 weeks. OK, 25 days now.

I'm hoping so. The one potential worry is battery life with the thing running the larger screen and a 1.2 GHz dual core processor. On the other hand, bigger handset means they put a bigger battery in it than the Galaxy S (while still being slimmer than the iPhone 4), and the new screen technology apparently draws less current than the screen on the Galaxy S.
