Who cares anymore?
I have been closely following this devices journey to the market since it's "debut" in October. Google may well have built a fantastic OS, but the combo of them, Samsung, and Verizon have TOTALLY F'ED UP the marketing and release (?) of what should have been a game-changing phone in the uber-competitive smartphone wars. I personally wouldn't hit a dog in the ass with a Razr....and the Rezound looks nice enough, but the beats thing isn't that high on my list, so I'm not dropping 3 bills and wasting an upgrade on it. So the GN comes out in europe, and within 48 hrs theres a SERIOUS volume bug issue....more crap press. More and more previously supportive reviewers are pointing out what a "Three Stooges" this whole release has turned into.
I've just recently started tinkering with my X2, got it rooted and Molten flashed onto it, and I'm getting happier by the day with it......and at the same time, getting MUCH less likely to "upgrade" to the GN....whenever the Lords of GSV deign to provide it.
I love the openness and ability to customize of the android system, but this debacle is NOT helping the cause of getting more quality devices into the hands of the masses....and I'm sure is also painting more smirks onto the smug faces of the "isheep".
