And it's probably GSM, too. .
I really REALLY want a Windows Phone 7 Phone (Don't knock it till you try it; IMO it's one of the best OSes out there that all the others could learn from) but Verizon has stated they aren't going to carry any new WP7 phones unless more LTE devices roll out, so all The Big Red gets is the crappy HTC Trophy.
What's childish about not wanting a sequel to Microsoft's last OS monopoly ?
I lived through the 90s and early 00s, I saw what Microsoft does with control and marketshare. I said no thanks then, I say no thanks now.
I actually like open standards and interoperability. 2 things Microsoft wasn't about and still isn't (Embrace, Extend, Extinguish, that's what they do).
But when Apple does it, it's OK? Because iOS is hardly open or interoperable, and Apple's trying to sue their competition out of business.
When did Apple have a OS monopoly that resulted in locking out all other players because of proprietary and closed protocols being made the only compatible technologies out there ?
Oh right, never.
Forgive me, I'm not standing up for either argument, I buy products on a "what I like" basis, but what you have mentioned there is all I see Apple doing nowadays.
It'll take ages to reach NZ though. Just out of curiosity, what's wrong with the Titan in your opinion? Just too big?
That thing is gigantic. It's like holding a tablet up to your head or something. Of course, that is assuming that people actually use their phone as, you know, a phone or something. I can't imagine carrying around something like that every day. It makes me wonder where this insane screen size war will end.
