  • The AT&T retail box contents may be slightly different, but this box contained a USB cable, A/C charging adapter, battery, and wired stereo headset.

  • Things changed last week

    Last week I was a happy Linux geek, using Ubuntu and feeling smug about not having to own a MacBook Pro to get stuff done. And I was looking forward to thumbing my nose at the iPhone users in my life when AT&T finally got around to offering a usable Android phone.<br><br>Then the iPhone 4 arrived. And it kicks the cr@p out of just about all Android phones.<br><br>So now AT&T would have to <i><b>give</b></i> me an Android phone and knock $15 per month off the plan to get me interested.<br><br>Weird, huh?<br><br>I hate to say it, but Android is looking kinda shabby right now.

      Really? Shabby? Wait until the Froyo update when the iPhone 4 drops. Android has caught up with apple in 3 years and had passed in many ways. Now Apple drops another phone, beautiful yes with limited functionality still with Orwellian names attached and people are gaga. iTunes is your enemy my friend, the cloud is the future.

  • More powerful droid phones continue after iPhone 4 fad

    The same month iPhone 4 comes out we should be hearing about Motorola's awesome new Droid phones that pack a punch that iPhone 4 can't even put a candle to. That is the beauty of droid phones, you have choices and there a lot of great droid phones out now that surpass the iPhone 3GS and even equal the iPhone 4. HTC Incredible and EVO 4G speaks volumes of the droid phone technology and when high performance players like NVIDIA, Samsung, Motorola, Texas Instruments, Qualcomm amongst many others, we know by the end of this year we are going to see 2.5 GHz processors in Droids blowing the iPhone 4 away.

  • 1-2 million buy into this "fad" iPhone.

    The iPhone 4 "fad"?

    1-2 *MILLION* phones will be sold before the phone is even shipped to anyone.

    That's some "fad".

    How long will this current (3 year) "fad" last? Another 5 years?

    I have now used the Aria for over a week now and it beats any HTC Windows device . . .Period! Even with the weak processor is screams, is stable and I have not dropped a call. The UI is flawless but i would like to add a page or two to the main screen.
    The only minor issue I have is attempting to manage how the SD memory is managed.
    A very cool and full featured device.
