What about the iDont?
Anyway, my wife and I both got Sprint HTC Hero Android phones the first day they were available for sale, sold, done.
Now the amusing timing with this announcement is because it was literally just yesterday I mentioned to my wife that unlike the iPhone, one phone, one vendor, one global set of apps, that the Android platform wasn't playing on the same level field.
For instance, I suggested that one phone company could either make some exclusive killer apps to entice people to jump to their network, or dangle money in front of existing app makers for iPhone to port with one year exclusivity to Verizon, Sprint, etc. or some such nonsense.
Not even 1 day later Google announces my worst fear:
"Hey, look at this cool new Google MAP Navigation but none of you early adopters of Android can run it, neener neener Verizon's keener!"
So my wife was ready to bail on our Sprint Hero phones because the initial 30 days on our new phones isn't up yet and switch to Verizon to get the cool new phones.
Maybe that's the whole timing of this release by Verizon is to snatch everyone off Sprint before the 30 days is over and our contracts are locked in.
If it was deliberate, nice play.
Twice as much memory, a real hardware keyboard, a flash for the camera, I am really tempted.
We'll see where I stand on this in a few days as I really like my Hero, but hands on with the Droid could make me jump providers for the first time in years.
We shall see!
