iPhone For Verizon: My Thoughts

It seems like iPhone is doomed to fail by waiting this long to go multi-carrier. In January the iPhone will be released on Verizon, but will anyone really be that excited except for current iPhone users. also by doing this I see MANY people seeing no point in getting an iPhone with AT&T anymore because I always hear how bad the signal coverage is.

Anyway, there are so many Android phones that are out now and coming out in the future that seem to out class the iPhone. I keep saying that the only thing that I see that iPhone still has on Android is that there App Store is more matured that the Android market. The iPhone App Store has MANY more apps more companies and people develop for iPhone because they were the dominating force in the cell phone market. Once these companies realize that there are just as many Android users as iPhone users and start to hire more people to Develop for Android we may see the markets start to even out. seeing many more of the same apps on Android as there are in the iPhone App Store.

After this happens I see new Verizon customers picking up an Android phone rather than an iPhone. But of course there are still the the Apple fans that will stay loyal to Apple and stick with the iPhone. I am now using an iPhone as a secondary device that I carry around to check out the App Store mess with some apps and explore the OS.

What do you think will happen when the iPhone is released on Verizon as far as Apple’s profits and AT&T’s losses?

Chrome OS Tablet?

So I have been hearing about this tablet recently that is supposed to release on Verizon at the end of this year on Black Friday. The tablet is going to run Chrome OS and is being manufactured by HTC. In the picture it looks almost identical to the iPad but that could change because it is of course, just a rendering. I guess we can assume it will have a capacitive touchscreen, bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and since it is on Verizon, will be on EVDO Rev.A. Would be nice if it has a camera or two including a front facing camera for web chat. Now I would assume to compete with the iPad they would want to have ADOBE FLASH and some sort of native video chat software.

My question is why continue with chrome OS why not just use Android and integrate some of the features that they want to see on the  Chrome OS?

Galaxy S Gets Froyo In September

I can’t wait for Froyo to be released for my beloved Samsung Vibrant… With all the talk of the speed increase in Froyo and the fact that the Galaxy S phones are already amazing, I can’t wait to see how the new update performs. Above is the tweet that confirms the release of the update by Samsung UK Mobile. Right now the only phone with 2.2 is the google Nexus One, and next inline are the Droid X on Verizon and the EVO4G on Sprint.
