Android is the new operative System made by Google and others companies. Is an Open Source OS that any manufacturer can use in their phones, not like Windows Mobile or iPhone.

Spyros/Cesar.s.c., 28 Apr 2009Samsung is the Captain in smartphones, and has only two enemies. 1st: HTC, but HTC makes only ... moreNO! U r totally wrong! Nokia is the largest smart phone manufacturer, look at it's Symbian OS taking over 60 percent of the market share in smart phone category.
samsung, your way too rush to use a android os phone, you've didn't think that android will have a new version of this os, and other mobile phone manufacturers are waiting for it, like s.e., they delay using android os, because they are waiting for the newer version of this os, and nokia which is actually making a big strategy to use this os, and LG which i think will use this os in their verson of twelve meg. phone
Wow you are so blessed with your knowledge of your phones. The last thing from SE i bought broke, as did the camera, hard drive and phone. So SE will be the last thing i buy. Unlike my Omnia which has survived a bath, washing machine and countless drops etc.. and still works perfectly!
And than came the complete, tunnel vision, one tracked minds. Below this opinion.

I think this phone hit every possible aspects that the HTC failed to include in their Android phones.
1. 3.5mm head-F*ckin-phone Jack. As a long time owner of HTC products (I had Tmo US MDA, Tmo Wing, Dash, and now G1), I still can't grasp why HTC still using microUSB port as audio out/data/power.
2. AMOLED screen is a progress and I'm pretty sure it will catch on to many touchscreen phones in near future. Better durability + requires less power than current LED LCD = longer lasting battery life
3. bigger battery capacity. one of the big complaint for G1 is battery life, and I can say it is true. G1's stock battery is only 1150 mAh, while this phone is 1500 mAh. I barely able to last for 12+ hrs from a full battery without the phone dying, or having less than 10 percent of charge left.
4. Better camera: 5MP autofocus + FLASH !!!. something that HTC should've done when releasing G1. if 5MP sensor too expensive to keep production cost down, they could at least put LED flash for it.
I do have some personal issues with the design. No trackball is a let down for me. I love it on my G1. It's like having Blackberry without the crappy, outdated Blackberry OS.
The stand-out buttons kind of kill the aesthetic of the phone for me. I like how G1 buttons are flush with the body and has same color. Kinda give that slick look and feel.
My last critic would be no actual keyboard. I know it has on-screen keyboard, but no on-screen keys can do better than actual ones. Plus, G1 has one of the best keyboard that I've ever used on a smartphones.
I will have to say that Nokia and Sony Ericsson era has already gone. Samsung is now the best.
Samsung is the Captain in smartphones, and has only two enemies. 1st: HTC, but HTC makes only smartphones. 2nd: LG: LG has made a deal with microsoft, and it is said that LG will launch about 30 winmo phones into 2009. Sony Ericsson + Nokia = Nothing interesting.
Anonymous, 28 Apr 2009dont worry coz they are waiting for Android 2.0 and than you will see that SE phoneSony Ericsson cant hit Samsung. From smartphones, SE has only a winmo the Xperia (made in HTC) and a Symbian, the IDOU and it will become a failure!!!
zenderady, 28 Apr 2009This is going to rock. If it will be priced at euro 300 than it will have an even bigger impac... moreBut be sure, this is not gonna be under 500-600 euros!I believe in Nokia! maybe if you ask me I choose SE but this time I'm gonna buy a 5800 XM! Not a brand can give such a specs under 400-500 ;).
