  • iPhone 4 Sold Out – How this will impact the sales of Android devices?

    Posted on June 16th, 2010 Erik Baeumlisberger No comments

    Pre-orders for iPhone are temporarily suspended

    AT&T  announced early this AM that it has halted pre-orders for the iPhone 4. Both the AT&T website and Apple websites were slammed yesterday, as hundreds of thousands, perhaps millions, applied for the pre-order.

    Reports of a new ship date are slowing coming to light. Customers are reporting that their iPhone 4 pre-order confirmations are stating the new ship date as July 2. With an estimated 1 in 100 orders being fulfilled yesterday, how will this adversely effect Apple?

    It remains to be seen if sales of the EVO and HD2 see  a boost in sales during what some have called, “The iPhonecalypse”.

  • HTC Aria – AT&T’s second Android phone this year announced

    Posted on June 14th, 2010 Erik Baeumlisberger No comments

    HTC AriaToday, AT&T has announced the addition of their second Android phone this year.

    It is the first on AT&T to run Android 2.1 and the first to include HTC’s Sense UI. With a screen size measure a demure 3.2 inches, it’s outmatched by the current generation iPhone and the massive 4.3 inch screen available on the Sprint EVO and T-Mobile HTC HD2.

    Of course, all the usual suspects are present. Gmail, Google Maps, Google Nav, YouTube and the Android Market are all pre-installed on the device.

    At a price of $199 (a $100 rebate is available), it appears to us that this phone is geared at the entry-level smartphone market. With the drop in price of Apple’s iPhone 3Gs to $99, it reamains to be seen if AT&T customers will consider the HTC Aria as their next mobile device.
