PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless InfoWorld's Serdar Yegulalp provides an in-depth tutorial on how he rooted and upgraded his Motorola Cliq XT, one of many Android phones made infamous for not receiving further Android updates beyond 1.5. 'It turned out to be quite an odyssey, with twists and turns I describe here in order to help those who wish to embark on a similar journey,' Yegulalp writes. 'Was it worth the trouble? Yes, in the sense that learning how to jailbreak your own phone is a valuable skill, and I got much more functionality out of the Cliq, when I was expecting to simply junk it. '

Well, there is one obstacle that can get in the way - money. I had a limited budget when it came to buying a phone. The Nexus S was beyond that budget. But it's not that big of a deal for me, I like to tinker. And you're right, the Nexus S can be bought everywhere in Europe. It also has a really sleek design, it's a great choice for a phone.
