There really has not been a lot going on lately in the cellular world. It seems that 2009 is going to be a year that can be summed up in one word; Android. Pretty much all cellphone manufacturers are jumping on the Google OS bandwagon. Palm could also rise from the dead this year with Nova, but we will only know that after CES, when we find out what Nova is.
Yesterday, we saw some possible spy shots of the G2, which looks like an Android version of the HTC HD. Today’s rumors are that Sony Ericsson seems to be releasing their version of an Android phone, and it looks pretty amazing. It has a huge touch screen and a slide out full QWERTY, kinda like the N97 running Android.
In other news, we recorded our first podcast yesterday. It is called Like Mob and it will be available on iTunes shortly. In the podcast, Aryeh, Itamar, and I ramble on about all the newest cellular developments. In this episode, we talk about Nova, the G2, the American 5800 Xpress Music, Samsung’s Android phone, the Nokia E63, and how the iPhone is on sale at Best Buy and is now officially unlocked.
Let me just warn you that our recording setup was not ideal this episode, so the audio quality left room for improvement. Next week, it will be better.
