Re: Smoked by WindowsPhone Challenge?

The challenge is rigged somewhat in their favor so you have to do some preparation. There was a chart posted a while back on reddit.com/r/android/ which had some hilarious results (like an iPhone 3GS...

Re: Why do people say MeeGo is dead?

Last I read, Intel dropped out / gave up on Tizen, leaving only Samsung. Might be wrong though.

Re: OOOH! Ubuntu on Android... (Apologies if this is a repost)

Not sure what you mean by boot a PC to Ubuntu. Like use the N900 like a bootable flash drive?

What Canonical is doing is making it possible to run Ubuntu off an Android phone (at least from the...

Re: The Epic Android Thread

I think Google has started doing that already, if not they are starting with ICS (there was an agreement made a while back though I think it only applies for new phones). Don't know when it's exactly...

Re: The Epic Android Thread

Nexus Prime for me. Even with the other ICS phones scheduled for release they are still going to have skins and go through two or three companies for updates. For example, if I have a T-Mobile brand...

Re: MeeGo vs Mango

Cause Elop was Microsoft's 8th biggest shareholder. I think he's 9th now.



I've never been a huge fan of the Tile interface, starting with Microsoft's experimentation with it on the XBOX 360....

Re: The Epic Android Thread

It's a Nexus phone for me! Just have to wait until the unlocked GSM variant comes out in November. I doubt T-Mobile or AT&T will carry it subsidized. Verizon probably has the lockdown on that.

Re: The Epic Android Thread

My upgrade from T-Mobile is available. So I'm waiting on the Nexus Prime to see if I want to buy it unlocked or just get the Galaxy S2.

Re: Should I a Nexus Prime, N9 or just keep my N900?

Why not get a dumb phone and use the N900 as a mobile tablet computer? I find that I don't use the N900's computing abilities as much as I use to. I myself am probably going with the Nexus Prime or...

Re: Apple keynote - iPhone 4S announced

It'll recover when Apple announces their earnings. But this tends to happen with Apple stock for product announcements because of over-hype.

Re: Apple keynote - iPhone 4S announced

Yeah I had to look it up. It seems more integrated than Google's current operation and definitely more context aware. Though I have no doubt Google had already planned to further integrate voice...

Re: Apple keynote - iPhone 4S announced

I haven't had time to watch the conference (busy making changes to a a usability study with mobile devices after a dry run). But what makes it different from Android's voice capabilities?

Re: Gary Birkett (aka lcuk) RIP

Wow. I never met him but from interacting with him from e-mail and the forums he sounded like an awesome guy. Always had interesting projects too that I enjoyed using. May he rest in peace.

Re: Let's talk Nokia stock!

Re: What makes people want WP7?

The appealing thing about WP7 is its XBOX LIVE, Zune, and Windows integration. Which is great if you use those services. The only problem with the LIVE integration I've seen so far is it doesn't seem...

Re: Google buying Motorola - now will MS buy Nokia?

Yeah. Does that mean your stock splits? Or does it stick with the main company?

Re: Google buying Motorola - now will MS buy Nokia?

They will probably diversify between Android and WP7. Google will probably do the vanilla experience, and hopefully push Samsung and HTC to do a better job with their custom ROMs.



Yeah and...

Re: Google buying Motorola - now will MS buy Nokia?

What happens to your stock in a company if they split like that? E.g. If I bought Motorola stock and then they split.

Re: Let's talk Nokia stock!

The only reason I haven't counted Microsoft out yet for WP7 is because they've at least shown they are somewhat competent in competing on the game console front. So for specialized experiences (as...

What do you guys think between the HTC Sensation or Samsung Galaxy S II? Though I'm sticking with T-Mobile.
