It’s been a few weeks and the dust from a very active CES for phone announcements is beginning to settle. AT&T and pretty much every major OEM announced phones. Motorola and Verizon announced a few rehashed devices, one of which launched on January 26th, 2012. Nokia and Samsung were fairly busy as well.
That leaves me to ask you all one important question. Which phone are you most excited about and how long are you willing to wait for it?
I am most excited about 2 phones, the Nokia Lumia 900 and the HTC Titan II. I am really looking forward to the Nokia Lumia 900 the most mainly because of the Cyan color, the unibody construction, and I am itching to use Windows Phone more often. The main issue is that I am on Verizon and won’t be able to purchase the Lumia 900 when it drops.
So which one?
I can’t get excited about an Android phone shipping with Gingerbread now that I have had my Ice Scream sandwich. This reminds me of a certain carrier launching a certain OEMs phone with Android 1.6 when 2.x was being shipped on other products.
I can’t get excited about the Samsung Galaxy Note either. Don’t get me wrong, I love a big screen, but the Galaxy Note’s screen is insanely large. I believe it should be classified into a new category. Micro Tablet or Mega Phone? The Note has sold well overseas and I expect that it will do fine in the US as well, but I’m not interested.
I can’t get excited about the revamped phones either. All the updated models add additional features or specs, but are they being updated too soon? Droid RAZR and HTC Titan owners are just getting settled into their new phones and there is already a new version. Should the owners of those devices be upset? I know I would be if I got locked into a 2 year contract 2-3 months ago and my phone had a new version drop already. How many versions of the Samsung Galaxy S II are there now? 4 in the last 6 months, maybe more?
So tell us why you are excited about the phone you have your eyes on!
