Sorry for the delay in posting but I have been rather busy with work and recovering from the drunken madness that was a Panda Birthday week.
A lot of excitement going on in the mobile space with Dual core, updates aplenty and the like and I think this is the perfect time to talk about something that Mobile customers have continued clamoring for.
A stock Google experience device….
yep.. no Motoblur, no Sense Ui, no Touch wiz… just as the day Google made it.
But here doesn’t every carrier give their customers a device like this?
because at the end of the day the people that make these calls in product, marketing and the like want a “unique” customer experience for each device. They understand that they arent going to sell 5 million stock devices no matter how much the vocal twitter community asks for it.
“but Sprint has the nexus S” yea I know and its a nice device for last years specs.. Truth be told a dual core currently stock monster in the waiting in the wings more then likely going to be outsold by one running a “fun and enjoyable UI” on top of Android.. Because in mobile its become all about exclusive devices and services..
Ask those who got excited about the Nexus One bout disappointment…
Sadly as Nexus sales show customers do not want a stock device that they have to tweak to their liking. They want a device they can turn on and quicky setup Facebook and other services that normal people use.
I have actually started advising Verizon customers looking to get a device to go for a droid charge or HTC Thunderbolt. The Sony play is almost stock but specs are rather lacking for a long two year commitment.
Or if you really want Stock.. that G2X is looking rather nice and Tmobile is service is quite decent in some areas but as always Verizon is the gold standard..
So the next time twitte dude that roots his devices (I dont root) and keeps yelling AOSP (90% dont know what they means) ask him how many soccer moms he knows that want to run stock android..
So thats what a panda has today..
Tune in soon for a update on the upcoming droid line.. Charge, Bionic and the like..
