What can we make of this credit card spending by smartphone platform data from Pageonce? That iPhone owners spend like crazy, and WinMo holdouts are probably saving up for a new phone, for starters.
Seems there's at least one mystery HTC smartphone making the rounds today that's bucking the company line and not running the Sense UI in any way shape or form, "augmented features" be damned.
Even though Microsoft has been strict in regards to what manufacturers can do with the Windows Phone 7 interface, HTC said late last week that the Sense UI would nevertheless find its way onto those devices, perhaps in October.
See, a guitar made up of phones isn't just about the music. It's about bringing people together. And by "people" I mean mobile operating systems. Presenting two Android and WinMo devices and an iPod Touch, united to play Cracklin Rosie.
That luscious HTC HD2, the near-perfect mobile that had it going on in all the right places, save the WinMo 6.5 OS, is seen here doing the impossible: Running a Windows Phone 7 Series ROM. Updated.
The WSJ has confirmed that Mic will introduce their newest mobile phone OS on Monday at the Mobile World Conference in Barcelona. WinMo 6.5 is dead; long live Windows Phone 7.
A small Zune software maintenance update released today's got three glaring references to drivers for phone devices. The collision of Zune content and Microsoft mobile software is basically imminent, sure, but are these the Zune phones? Probably not.
All of that Project Pink/Zune Phone rumor madness is back with one statement by Jefferies analyst Katherine Egbert:
If Phone Arena's leaked roadmap is correct, Sprint will be launching an Android WiMax phone from HTC in 2010.
For $15 a month, a Zune Pass subscription is a pretty great deal. The only catch, seemingly, is that you also have to pony up a couple hundred bucks for a Zune. Except! Turns out you don't. PocketNow shows how:
I still don't know why the Omnia II's 3.7-inch AMOLED touchscreen is resistive, but the WinMo 6.5 phone will go head-to-head with Verizon's own Moto Droid. Leaked docs suggest it'll be $200 on contract after $100 mail-in rebate.
