    Hi,

    I’ve been playing with Milestone since Friday and I have a few questions.

    1. Loads of apps are missing from the Market (even apps I’ve paid for). I know there is a sticky posting that mentions this, but does anybody know why?
    2. There is no pinch and zoom on Google Maps. Is this just my device?
    3. The stock browser isn’t reflowing the page when you pinch and zoom. I’ve switched to Dolphin so this isn’t such a big problem but odd.

    Cheers,
    Pete

    Hey Pete,

    1
    where did you buy your Milestone from?
    It is proven, that milestones, that are not bought via a certain provider (like via amazon) dont have FULL access to the market. That is a developer related problem.They can limit apps to certain OS builds/software brands/credit card provider.

    Hi,

    1. Bought it from from Expansys. If thats the case then I'm a little more than annoyed!
    2. Ho hum, don't use maps that much so not a huge problem.
    3. If you zoom in the browser the text is not reflowed so you need to pan right to read the page. This works fin on my old G1 and Dolphin.
