Will orange UK be gettin any of the upcoming HTC phones soon?
Orange are getting the Desire this spring
ANy truth in them gettin bravo ?
Orange appear to have put HTC on the back shelf.
And are investing heavily into the iphone market.
It would be commercial suicide not to, April will see the Desire on Orange accoring to reports.
Exactly, if there's gonna be a hard slogged out war between Android and iPhone, why not have them both on your books and benefit?
the war is ages away, Apple reign supreme currently, I fear Android will always be predominatly a specialist market, well in Europe at least, Im not sure how Android is shaping up over the pond.
I saw a report that said baisically that The iPhone has 50ish % of the smart phone market, with Android tipping in at about 25%, but that 25% is a growth of something like 1100%.. Ill find the link
I'm not entirely sure that Orange are aware that Android even exists. Within a couple of weeks of the iPhone arriving they released an Orange Wednesday app, I've never seen any Android apps from Orange despite them carrying Android phones for much longer.
Good point, Cost benifit ratio's obv are not right yet for them to devote the time.. maybe!
Or maybe Android users are more likely to Download pirated Films, rather than goto the Cinema
That made me chuckle, you got my kinda sense of humour !
Not a Paramedic too by any chance?
Agree though, Orange have gone hammer and tongs at the iphone since they've acquired it.
Its an Easy market though the Phone sells its self, to Women and techniphobes, Could you imagine what this forum would be like if half the iPhone users suddenly switched to Android..
The fact that the back comes off and you can take the battery out would scare the life out of them!!
My friends wife just got a white Hero on 3, he's still stuck in the 90s on his iphone. In the last 24hrs I've had at the very least 30 phone calls that start with the line.
"how do I..."
I've worked out some people shouldn't have Android phones.
I think the iphone sells well because even though it's classed as a smartphone it is very very simple to use. I can see her returning the Hero to 3 in the next few days.
Noobs shouldn't get Smartphones!!
The problem for the carriers and manufactures is trying to appeal to both groups, those that can understand and get the best from their so called smartphone and those that are moving from a so called dumbphone. It's a difficult balancing act. It'll maybe take other manufactures to grasp the concept of Android and make it more user friendly. A kind of Android/iphone hybrid.
It would be interesting to see which ones are working on Android phones and which aren't.
Whilst I love my HTC Hero I can see the drawbacks for someone who doesn't understand what's going on under the skin, Android is not for everybody whereas even an idiot can work an iphone. Apologies to any idiots out there!
I like it like that, makes me feel special inside :-D
Do you rekon the Evo will ever make it too orange??
