Android Is Knocking On Our Door. Help, Apple
Hard to ignore the momentum of Android smart phones. And that wave is literally crashing on my doorstep. The spouse keeps voicing interest in an Android phone.
Reasoning is pretty sound. She’s on Verizon, and talks much more on the phone than I do, therefore reception is a must – particularly in the confines of our apartment which still has crappy AT&T coverage. She’s unwilling to switch to AT&T just for the iPhone. Her current contract ends after December.
Ever since the iPhone 4 came out, I’ve been saying: wait. At least through January when Apple will probably announce the infamous Verizon iPhone. I’m still pumping the ecosystem, shared apps thing but those arguments are failing vs. the prospect of a Verizon smart phone – that can be relied on to make phone calls.
I can probably stave off the Android invasion until February. A Verizon iPhone would make a swell Valentine’s Day present.
But if there’s no Verizon iPhone by then… Hello, Android, I suppose.
