Ah yes, time for the next crop of “xxxxx phones will beat the iPhone”. And like the other competitors they will fall in the iPhones shadow. People like the iPhone because it’s simple, thin and easy to use. When you get a iphone it comes with 5-6 apps and you buy the rest. Throwing numerous gadgets onto a phone won’t persuade users to use your phone.
I wonder what the battery life on the Galaxy Beam is going to be during a presentation?
Battery life was my first thought as well.
Who needs a 41 megapixel camera?
Who needs a projector built in their phone?
The market for these so called iphone killers will be small.
Not very long...
You could have 100 zillion gabillion pixels and it won't make a good photo if you don't have optics good enough to take a shot that's any better at that resolution. How are they going to fit (and pay for) a lens of sufficient quality in a cell phone to make 41 megapixels any better than 6-8MP?? Typical geek think -- improving the specs on the digital electronic stuff will somehow make a better product without thinking about the mechanical, real-world, meat-space parts of the equation.
The battery is rated at 2000 mAh which gives a lot of hours if you are not using the projector, but then I’m not sure that the projector would be feasible for other than on the spot, short presentations.
Perhaps, but I’m thinking that if the electronics are capable, the mechanics will follow.
Some people will buy a particular phone for a particular gadget, the products will fill a niche.
My particular issue is, as I get older, I have a hard time reading from a little screen. One of those phones with a 5” screen is looking pretty good to me.
I don’t know, unless they’ve made some serious cost and quality advances in lens-making. Maybe.
I like the ASUS Pad Phone concept, because I will be able to use one Wireless Data plan for all of my devices. Right now, I do not have Wireless Data on my tablet or laptop, because there is a separate charge for each account, which is far more expenses than the devices, over time.
What none of these phones have is iOS. I don’t trust any device that requires a Google account for optimum use. I would consider a RIM Playbook if they added 3G and a no contract phone deal for a modest surcharge. HP’s Web OS coulda been a player. But no Android for me.
Why does anyone need all of the bells, whistles, and apps on an iPhone? What bright, shiny new and overpriced features will the next iPhone or iPad3 have?
bleeech.....sometimes too much is just too much
Well, I have a Samsung Galaxy which has been good. Got a hold of a friend's iPhone and found it anything but easy compared to the Droid OS. Smaller screen, more searching through menus. Really couldn't see why anyone would pick that phone other than name recognition.
The kind of overpriced features that will make millions of people want to have one.
Exactly. After a threshold, the quality and size of the lens the dominant factor in picture quality.
