Hi Tom,

Yep, I am using it as my main phone.

The Galaxy S3 may be a good phone, I have the Nexus.

You can also get the Xperia range from Sony which have hardware keyboards.

If you download the Eyes-Free keyboard then you will get a virtual D-pad as
well as a keyboard.

Here's some links where you can figure things out:-



Some podcasts:-

http://www.blindtechsupport.com then select the Android podcasts.

http://www.thatandroidshow.com, where I am a cohost.

And finally, join the Eyes-Free discussion list by sending a blank message
to eyes-free+subscribe at googlegroups.com.  Note the plus sign before the word
subscribe.  You'll be most welcome there.

All the best

Hi folks,
How accessible is icecream sandwich right out of the box?
does any flavour of it have a keypad?
Is there any way to scroll. Previous versions had a scrolling device.
Anyone tried the latest Samsun.
