The network battle!


Ever wonder about the Android lineup on AT&T? The best that they have is the Samsung Captivate, but compared to its sibling the Samsung Fascinate (soon to be offered on Verizon)  it’s lacking a flash. The flash to me is a simple feature that could make or break someone’s purchasing decision. Other than the Captivate, there is the Motorola Backflip and Dell Aero which I think is a joke! Is AT&T purposely picking less superior Android phones compare to it’s Verizon competitor?

Is this the carrier mobile war? After all, Verizon did launch a Droid does campaign purely targeted at AT&T.  To add to this war, Samsung is going to launch the Galaxy Tab on Verizon.   This will be an interesting battle to keep our eyes on!


GoogleChic, for most people flash is not the deciding factor, an operating system or user interface is! 😀

If you want to turn your back on the iPhone, which other smart phone would you pick? An Android phone? Now if you want an Android phone, which carrier would you go to?  The company that boasts hoards of Android phones and whose campaign slogan is “iDon’t, Droid does”? Verizon has done a good job of dissing AT&T. Is it because Verizon did not get the iPhone deal? GoogleChic, of course everything in the mobile world is related to the iPhone! 🙂

I’m curious to see how it would play out if the popular Verizon iPhone rumor is true! Maybe, Verizon would decide that it would rather make more money by investing in the iPhone than a bunch of Android devices.

If Apple did offer Verizon the iPhone deal, I can certainly say that Verizon would snatch it up like a hungry wolf. After all, Verizon has waited for 3 long years to be served the best meal there is 😉

Dell is no Apple!


GoogleChic, your “ever evolving Android”  has left another device in the dark? 😉 The Dell Steak Mini is being shipped with an old Android 1.6  and promising an upgrade ..god knows when. Is that Dell being lazy or what?

Now, I am not sure if it is a iPad wannabe or an iPhone wannabe! Too small and expensive to be an iPad killer and too big and again expensive to be an iPhone killer. Yikes, talk about a design blunder!!

You think Dell Streak will make the cut?  I think NOT!


Google’s ever evolving Android platform didn’t leave another device in the dark. Dell needs to get their act together and help themselves. It does look like Dell is trying to play catch up as 2.1 has been leaked in the UK but they’ll need to move fast since we’re now on 2.2!

AppleGirl, don’t fault Google for Dell’s inability to keep up. After all,  there are plenty of devices from HTC, Motorola and Samsung to choose from; unlike the one device, one carrier choice. 😉

By the way, Dell Streak is more of a “mini” tablet so you’ll have to at least give Dell credit for attempting to try something new. They are trying to stand out, so “Dell is no Apple” because they don’t want to be!

Check it out for yourselves and let us know what you think!
