Next Gen Phones
Fancy next generation phones are all the rage lately and there are a plethora of articles exploring the ins and out and features of all the types of phones. Comparisons of all types of phones can be found that look at price, speed, ability, available apps, extra features, service, etc. The big players in this phone game are Apple’s iPhone, Google’s Nexus One, and the HTC Droid. Each phone has its benefits and drawbacks and all seem to end up costing you roughly the same amount in the long run, so it comes down to preference between the pros and cons of each. The iPhone is the clear front runner currently in usage, which is fitting since it was the first on the market. It also boasts the largest amount of apps available by far. It is limited though to only running one app at a time on it, and it uses AT&T as its carrier, which has been heavily criticized for its service. The other phones don’t have the same number of apps, but some do run multiple apps at the same time. They use different operating systems and have different carriers. Having Verizon as the carrier for the Nexus One seems to be a big selling point for that phone as its service is far superior and you aren’t left in “dead zones” so frequently.
