I find that the big carriers are only interested in giving me what they want in a phone, instead of what I want. The past examples of locked-down features, Windows Mobile on everything (horrible OS), etc... demonstrate this, so Android could really be great--I could get a phone to do what I want it to do. I'm kind of psyched.
The T-Mobile phone is probably junk. T-Mobile doesn't have much 3G rolled out, so I don't think this particular phone will do much, but the next one (on other carriers) could rock! With a bunch of 3rd party apps. Heck, if Apple was really smart, they'd be working on an Android version of iTunes.
I'm not sure why this will kill iTunes, but it will eventually allow more people to have an iPhone-type phone without having to pay out to AT&T.
Also, Apple is killing themselves with all the stupid moves on the app store. Too restricting. Android could open things up if the big carriers can loosen their grip.
All this remains to be seen, but since you opened this to discussion, I figured I put in some opinion.
I'd really like to check one of these out -- without seeing the OS, its hard to tell, but I think the market is begging for something better than Win Mobile.
just figured id start a post about it...
It's interesting, but I think it's rly too early to speculate, but i bet there'll be a ton of e-pundits preaching an iDoomsday.
Looks like preliminary reports make it sound pretty luddite-proof. but i have to say the phone itself is pretty intimadting to common folk...
Maybe they can just co-exist...
i dunno whast do you guys and gals think?
