iPhone 3GS or N97? Here Is Your Answer!

As I posted earlier this week, a lot is going on in the mobile industry lately, and people looking to buy new phones are now met with a much wider selection of top notch phones from which to choose. The market is filled with highly advanced and a feature filled phones such as the Nokia N86, Samsung Omnia line, Sony Ericcson Satio (Idou), the new Android devices by HTC, and much much more. With the tens of new and exciting mobile devices being announced every day, there really are two names that stick out from the rest. I have been asked by tens of people now, what I think is a better purchase, the N97 or the new iPhone 3GS.

A lot going on in the mobile industry in the last few days and Israel is in the hot spot (no pun intended). Let’s start with the fact that all 3 cellular providers; Orange, Cellcom, and Pelephone recently announced that they will be launching the iPhone 3Gs over the next few months.

So out of the 150 thousand phones they will sell in 2009, 100 thousand will be iPhones?!

They invited a group of bloggers and twitters (their definition, not mine) to hear about the way Orange operates, in terms of choosing phones, marketing them, testing them, and selling them. It was a very interesting crowd, mostly people I communicate with on Twitter and have met at a few events before. When we arrived, we were greeted by the top executives of Orange, which at least for me, showed that they meant business.

Motorola Following Palm and Coming Back to Life

One of the companies struggling most in this hard economy is Motorola. Now, I am sure the economy has some part in their hardships but I am pretty convinced Motorola itself is not exactly innocent. I cannot remember the last handset coming out of Motorola that even remotely excited me, since of course, the Razr (you know you loved it the first time you saw it too). So now the people over there at Motorola have to be thinking how to get back in the game. What does Motorola have to do to become relevant again?
