 iPhone 5 Release Makes Japan’s KDDI Pull Off Android Site

What could be more demeaning than the fact that someone takes off your product in an anticipation that another product is ready to surface in the market. I would find it absolutely lousy and discouraging but then that’s how businesses work, you promote what will sell. Especially when both products compete severely with each other, and both are bound to make you huge profits. I am talking about the Android and the Apple iOS based iPhone.

image thumb1 Can the HTC Camera Be Beat? Can HTC Interface Ever Change?

The latest in the T-Mobile HTC 4G Android Phone lineup, the Sensation, is already being considered one of the best smartphones either company has ever been involved with. It’s 4.3 touch screen display and overall length of nearly 5 inches with a width of 0.44 inches gives it a lanky look. When compared to the iPhone, however, this quickly becomes the phone’s definitive style. Simply put, the HTC Sensation as a model overrides the cool factor of the iPhone, which is honestly an incredibly difficult thing for a mobile phone to achieve these days.

The battery life is almost too good to be true, and if I didn’t see it for myself I wouldn’t believe it. Two hours of music, an accumulative hour texting, count one more for talking, then another hour for browsing and four more for goofing off and gaming, and I still had plenty of power left. With the phone I have now that would’ve needed a charge before I had time to finish my second-to-last dungeon for the day.

Don’t be addicted to technology. That’s what I would recommend to anyone who isn’t yet. The concept of waiting for the right device to make the purchase is a totally pointless thing to do. Why? Innovation. I guess it won’t be wrong to state that there is a new smartphone being rolled out every month. It is evident that I feel the emptiness of not having the latest Android smartphone, which is the Samsung Galaxy S2.
