Side by Side Breakdown: iPhone 4 vs. EVO 4G

Well today was a busy day (and a little embarrasing) for Apple. Not only did their WiFi service not work during one of their demonstrations, but most of the glory of the iPhone had already been outed by Gizmodo. In return for ruining their iPhone 4 glorious debut, Gizmo wasn’t invited to this year’s WWDC.

But that is neither head nor there, what is great is that the iPhone 4 is official, has some cool goodies and coming out at the end of June! So for all of you needing the latest greatest handset from Apple, your wait is only a little while longer. For those of you who’ve already read the specs on the site or blogs, you may still be considering the one alternative to iPhone 4; the HTC EVO 4G. In my honest opinion, I love the design of Apple’s new iPhone 4 but I feel that several items are lackluster to suit my personal taste. #1 no flash. Sorry Apple, but I want to be able to view flash, like when I was at the dentist office earlier today for a check up and while waiting for my Doctor, I was watching a walk-through of the new iPhone 4 on viddler. I sure couldn’t do that on the new iPhone 4. #2 Cost. It is going to cost me an arm and leg, close to $120-$150 per month, to get the same service I can get from Sprint (with unlimited data + free mobile to mobile calling) for under $90 per month, with tax. According to BillShrink, it would cost me almost $600 more over a two year period and that doesn’t include the fact that AT&T will not have unlimited data any longer.

So to each his own. I love the look at extras the new iPhone 4 comes with but I also know that there will be even better Android based handsets, that are far more open, get updated more frequently and in several ways are superior to iPhone 4 in a few key areas. Then again, the iPhone 4 new screen resolution, addition of a gyroscope (which opens up all kind of app possibilities, Flash drive, talk time (quoted not actually tested, but Apple is usually good about their testing quotes), an AppStore which is far superior than anyones and A4 processor are a pretty compelling reason to get the iPhone 4. So this boils down to your personal preference. If I had an extra $600 a year, I would probably get an iPhone 4 too. My recommendation, get the phone you wan and works for you the best – because you’ll probably be a whole lot happier than listening to tech blogs or your fanboy friends.

Touchscreen Battle: iPhone vs Droid vs Droid Eris vs Nexus One vs Palm Pre vs Blackberry Storm 2

In the battle of touchscreen sensitivity and overall performance, Moto Labs has pitted the big boys of touchscreens: iPhone vs Droid vs Droid Eris vs Nexus One vs Palm Pre vs Blackberry Storm 2. The video below shows a script written for MOTO’s laboratory robot and then re-ran the original the comparison to see how the touchscreens stack up when the lines are drawn by our robot’s slow and precise “finger. Kind of wished we could have seen the Nokia N900 next to these phones. Check out the video below.

HTC’s HD2 officially coming to T-Mobile, Winmo 7 announcement at MWC?

Microsoft opened CES last night with talk about Windows 7 and gaming. What they didn’t go into detail about is Windows Mobile. Steve Ballmer, CEO of Microsoft, did happen to whip the HTC HD2 out of his pocket for a second. He said the HTC HD 2 will be coming to T-Mobile ‘soon’. T-Mobile currently has a mailing list set up so you can be notified when the HTC HD2 will be available. Go here to get your name on the list. In case you have forgotten, the HTC HD 2 is the device with a monstrous 4.3″ screen at 800×480 resolution, 1Ghz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, 512 MB of ROM, 488 MB of RAM, and comes with HTC’s Sense UI. Ballmer also decided to throw out a bit of a tease for what’s to come.

Ballmer said that there will be more details on Windows Mobile at the Mobile World Congress event which is held in February.  We are hoping this means they are launching some new hardware with 6.5 and finally announcing the long-awaited Windows 7. LG reaffirmed this likelihood at their press event by saying “Windows Mobile 7 will be on devices later this year”. So get ready folks, it seems that the time for Microsoft’s big move back into the mobile forefront is just around the corner.
