I got my ad ready to go last night, going to post it Sunday after I get the Inspire in my hands.
The Email I have been waiting for! looks like you guys will get your teaser video very soon!
"All locations should start receiving the HTC Inspire today (Thursday) or Friday.
At this time, we are not able to sell the HTC Inspire till its official launch date: Sunday, February 13th.
The phone has not been added to the Activation Wizard and won’t be till Sunday, there are to be no outright sales till the launch date also. "
I assume there will be a few in-store models to test?
you assume correct
Lol guys check out my last comment in the att launching unlimited mobile to mobile
Noah Kravitz of TechnoBuffalo pushes his review of the HTC Inspire 4G!!! One of the few things that I don't agree with about this review is something he didn't even say. At the end, he put up a caption that said "AT&t's Best Android Phone until Atrix 4G Ships". That is wrong, sir.
Ugh...Noah and his tech reviews frustrate me. His gripes are about OS, like sound settings is stupid. All the way back to the G1, this is pretty much the standard way of doing things.
Thanks for posting this review of Android, HTC Sense, and ATT wireless coverage in the Bay Area of CA. If you come across any Inspire reviews, let me know
Yea its like they never used android or sense before idiots
LMFAO. Where was the phone portion of the phone review? Why was it a session of Noah showing his ignorance of Android OS? Ugh....
Its pretty pathetic no?
I'm still having a tough time deciding btw the Inspire and Atrix. I know both have its pro & cons, so on my day off on Monday, I'm going into AT&T and 'test-drive' the Inspire to see what I think of it. Can't buy a phone until the Feb. 20th so I still have a little time to decide which one is right for me.
The bloggers who bash android have been doing it from day one. I realized that was not going to change when I read an all out slaughter of the OS at the hands of Boy Genius. The opinion of bloggers like him (and apparently noah) don't phase me in the slightest.
On the bright side, Jon Rettinger is supposed to be getting HIS hands on the Inspire. Jon is pretty fond of Android, so we will see a good review out of him!
Lol well to be honest, its true. Android compared to the iPhone is complicated if you don't know it. Once you get to use it, you'll understand "Noah" that most notifications and sounds are application specific.
Aaron of Phonedog pushes pt. 1 of his review of the HTC Inspire 4G. Good review so far IMO: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wACWGRILrTo&feature=feedu
The unfortunate truth of the matter is,
If you own an Android device or are used to them (which you would think Noah is by now) then it should be no problem and reviewers will rave good things about it.
If you own an Iphone, and is not used to android or do not have much experience with it, it can come off as a challenge.
The biggest hint and reason to Noahs ranting: at one point in the video you can hear that tri-tone notification sound - the iphones.
Yea its obvious he's an isheep
Here's my take, for what it's worth.
First the obvious: iOS and Android are two _different_ mobile operating systems.
Just because they are both phones, people make a lot of assumptions. They compare them, and since the iPhone is so widely used with so many out in the hands of customers, people who have never used Android immediately notice some of the differences and then criticize the Android phone.
Next is the fact that our society emphasizes the negative, and sells negative news. Therefore people are so quick to be negative, they miss the goodness that is Android.
If they were less lazy and willing to learn something new, they would find that Android is a much better OS. Why? Because Android is built from the ground up as a true multi-tasking operating mobile operating system.
To make my point very simple. An iPhone is a phone that also has some features of a computer. An Android phone is a computer that has a phone included in the device. The only true multi-tasking device is Android. The only device with proper file management is Android. I could go on and on but I'm sure that most of you already know this.
As an iPhone user, what attracts me to android is the ability to download files and do what I want with the phone, not what apple wants. When I had a mytough4g, the first time I downloaded an mp3 from audiko.net and made it a ringbone on the phone, I was absolutely amazed.
Magical, wasn't it?
Man, this guy really rips the battery. Says he didn't get thru the day once in 5 days with moderate use. That sucks.
If the battery is anything like my Aria, it will take 2 weeks of usage to go from "awful" to "decent".
I don't know if we can put much stock into these reviews if they've only been using it for a few days.
