Of course there is a limit to what is too far. But I don't think Verizon did anything that went past the line. Did Verizon do any of those things that you list later in your post? No. They know better.Verizon poked fun of the iPhone with their iDon't ad, which was a real success in getting people talking about what the Droid was. Now Motorola did the same thing with this commercial. It's poking a bit of fun at a phone that suggested to be the iPhone.Now you see lots...
Might not have to wait for long.http://www.fool.com/investing/high-g...he-iphone.aspxhttp://blogs.computerworld.com/andro..._safari_chromehttp://androidandme.com/2009/08/news...e-from-iphone/
I guess someone hasn't been reading the tech news! Android is starting to pop up on anything that has a touchscreen. Tablets, smartphones, picture frames, netbooks, and even a freaking in-car system. I'd say Android is proving itself very well. Droid has proven itself too, with at least 250,000 sales during its launch week and on track to hit the 1 million mark before the year's end. For a phone on 1 carrier, in 1 country, that's very impressive. But back to the topic....
HI! BILLY MAYS HERE FOR POPS-A-TOWER. THE FAST, CONVENIENT WAY TO PUT UP A CELL TOWER WHERE YOU NEED IT WHEN YOU NEED IT! I'm sorry, but I couldn't resist. Is is still too soon?
Exactly. If you're downloading apps at 56K speeds (exaggeration, I know), it kills the experience too. No matter how great the UI of the phone is.
They could always turn that Apple logo into the flash...
With 250,000 sales on a single carrier in a single country in about a week (and counting) and accounts for 25% of all Android net traffic use worldwide, I'd say plenty of people care about the Droid. Please take the Apple blinders off. The Droid is the phone that finally put Android on the map as a significant competitor. But back on topic. I find Apple's rejection amusing and not surprising. But like others have said, discussing it is just free press for Droid...
I fail to see how that's any different than what Android will do to improve. Those "major new features" on the iPhone were actually needed items. MMS, copy/paste, video camera in the 3GS, 3G radio in the 3G, etc. That's pretty much hardware/software fixes too. Has the screen increased in resolution? Or maybe the AMOLED that we all hoped for? Or a thin slider with a physical keyboard? The Droid and most Android-based phones that are coming out already have those...
I would assume the exact same thing. Cut the prices and introduce hardware/software fixes as time goes along. We all know that the slide-out keyboard can definitely be done better. Maybe up the screen to AMOLED too. And the Droid was released with 12,000 apps to back it up. With those impressive sales figures, I can only think that the Android platform will draw more and more developers. The name (Droid and Android) is out there now and people will continue to buy...
Looks like we got some solid numbers!http://blog.flurry.com/bid/28266/Dro...e-Week-1-Sales Basically like I've been saying, in between the 100,000 "Verizon store thumb guess" and 400,000 "what about the addition of sales from other resellers?" marks. Considering that the Droid only sold in the US on Verizon (as opposed to the 8 countries the 3GS sold in), I'd say that's really impressive.
