    Dell does not make or design anything they sell. They are a 100% marketing company which means some cheap Chinese company probably produced the phone which also means FAIL.

    There are only two players out there. Apple and HTC.

    Every other Mfr does not have the engineers or know-how to create great smart phones. Just look at the Moto Droid. It sucks.

    easy.... Verizon did an excellent job with unprecedented marketing campaign. They even hired psychiatrists to work on their marketing. Yes people were blinded with hype. Yes the Moto Droid is nothing special. The hardware is bulky, the keyboard blows, ordinary TFT screen, uncomfortable to hold, D-pad is a joke

    I really have no opinion of the Droid. But by this logic, the iPhone is far superior to any phone out. Marketing can go a long way to selling a product, whether it's good or not.

    Isn't HTC a Chinese company? Not sure where the iPhone was made, but I'm quite sure it has some Chinese components in it as well.

    Going back to the topic, I love the design of the Thunder. I really hope phone manufacturers, can experiment more on other materials other than plastic for the shell.

    As far as the Dell, I personally like the Flash better because it's supposedly gonna run Android OS

    Ew.... it's thicker than my Hero... and it's.... blocky..... I'd rather have an iFail over that POS.

    Also, the Droid has decent hardware, which makes it attractive to most people. It's not that it's the best phone out there, it's all to do with marketing. The Nexus One is by far, specifications wise, superior to the iPhone, but it has VERY limited marketing. There's no AD's, there's no real commercials for it, it's completely relying on being sold over the internet. Nobody can go in and TOUCH the phone and actually hold the physical embodiment that is the phone.

    Marketing and representation are well over half the battle with selling these phones. You could have the next biggest thing and then throw it on the market, but if someone else comes along and copies your idea, but somehow makes it worse, then MARKETS it, they are going to have superior sales and representation over you, even though you have the original thing sitting in your hands.


    Long story short: Just sales records don't show how good something is. It shows how well a company/business thrives and how big their fan/user base is. Marketing and hype lead to people wanting something as well; no hype, no wants.

    I hope Dorito goes here and leaves HTC Droid Incredible forum. We should gather all of the flaming ummm... bunnies, all in one location so they can hopefully "bunny" each other to death.

    How could you say that? Dorito is actually a pretty smart guy. Some of his comments may be a little bitter sweet, but this stuff isn't just garbage you get off any old radio. I believe that the grim facts are that he is delivering what we all need to hear. Of course the fact that he is always right, at least that is what he will tell you anyway, only helps you appreciate him even more. Maybe one day, we will all wake up and smell the coffee.
