HTC Droid Incredible Smartphone Review | Macworld
Wow. Some serious fanboys and kool-aid drinkers there.
Oh man, that is truly hilarious.
I love people who bash open source software as if it's extremely buggy, unstable, vulnerable, etc. These people have absolutely no clue what they are talking about. I guess they can enjoy their phones/computers with proprietary software that have very specific hardware requirements. It must be fun knowing that if you want to upgrade from an iPhone without changing your OS, you have to upgrade to... another iPhone.
What's also nice is that proprietary technologies are almost always significantly more expensive. While Android phone technology will develop at an insane rate (and manufacturers will have to price aggressively to compete with other Android phones), the user ultimately gets a larger selection. The iPhone user gets to wait a year for a new Apple phone to be released, which is usually just a slightly upgraded version of the previous phone with a hefty price tag.
As evident by hardware technologies like HDMI, USB, firewire, etc AND open source software like Firefox, OOO, Ubuntu & other Linux distros, 7-zip and so forth, universal hardware/software is the DEVIL!
From the review:
"While the Nexus One has four touch keys, the Droid Incredible has four physical hardware keys running along the bottom (Home, Menu, Back, Search). I actually prefer the Nexus One's touch keys, though, as it gives the phone a more streamlined look."
How could the reviewer possibly get that wrong? And not just wrong by the way, making a strong statement based off of something that isnt even true.
HAHAHA, wow. I had a reply from another post i put that said the incredible should come with a toilet paper holder so you can supply the iPhags with something to wipe their vaginas with
There are many more mistakes. The review gives an erroneous description of leap to see multitasking???? I think this reflects very badly on them. Did they even have an incredible or just copy off other reviews?
I think they just figured everyone else had one, so to generate some traffic, lets make one up....all the good writers with phone knowledge are taken, have the girl from the mail department write it. tell her to make stuff up if she doesnt know the answer.
Looks like it was originally done by PC World and reprinted in Mac World since they're sister companies.
There's a reason why they call it Jail Broken. I prefer to have an open OS. That's why I switched from Win Mobile to Android. I don't like the direction Microsoft is headed. It's like big brother is watching to make sure you don't miss use a device that you purchased. I'm very impressed with Android and think the Incredible really is...
Even funnier, they have a pic of the Droid Incredible at the top of the page...with four streamlined touch keys.
