In a reply to an irate customer’s email regarding the iPhone 4′s problems, Jobs reportedly told the customer to ”Retire, relax, enjoy your family. It is just a phone. Not worth it.” And now Apple fans are tying up their hair and taking off their earrings. Yikes! Jobs better watch his back. Apple fans are scrappy. Shiver me timbers.
I’ll tell you what’s not “just a phone” – the HTC Evo 4G. I spent the last 8 days in LA to meet with developers, studios, and adult content producers in an effort to lure them to the open side. I’m so happy I had the Evo with me because bitch is a killer device. If there was any resistance to going Android (almost none), all I had to do was flash the Evo to squash any objection.
What particularly got panties wet were the 4.3 inch screen, faster load time, Android 2.1 support (rumor: Froyo soon), Flash 10.1 support, and the dual facing 8 megapixel primary and 1.3 megapixel front facing camera. Think of all the cam-chats! The phone can also be used as a wi-fi hotspot for up to 8 devices. This came in handy when a producer wanted to show us something on his iPhone but couldn’t get connected to wi-fi. (For those of you that don’t want to pay extra for that service, check out this root tutorial.)
The Evo begs the question: Are you sure you want an iPhone 4?
