Socoder -> Handheld Coding -> Andriod UI may beat iPhone UI

Sun, 24 Aug 2008, 11:23
A company has developed a user interface for Google's Andriod project that may just give the Apple iPhone a bit of competition. I am an iPhone owner but I have to admit that this looks wicked.

|update| These are just concepts. It's also been noted that you would need a very powerful phone to render these graphics. |update|

Looks fancy, but I only use this thing once a year. I keep trying to justify getting one of these fancy phones but I know I'll never use it.

I like to think of it like this. A fancy smart phone is like your "mobile device".

When your at home you can use your computer and when your on the go you have your mobile device.

Still, an iPhone costs a lot. I must admit that this Android UI looks really nice, though.

Yeah, same here.
As nice as it is, I'd rather have a pocket device that "Just plain works"
After all, I really only bought mine to be a camera, in the first place!!

I only have a tracfone, all it really has is a calculator and alarm clock. If I need anything more fancy, I just pull out my pocket-pad (a pocket-sized notebook) an djot things down in there.

As nice as that interface is, its hard to justify the price. But then there are those who would pay for it. Plus many cellphone companies give you a discount on the phone you choose. The iPhone was unique because it offered a touchscreen with a streamlined interface. Everyone else is just trying to catch up.

Well another thing a lot of people miss, is the power of a smartphone. I can understand them being pricey, but it's not "just a cell phone".

My iPhone runs apps, plays movies, and even can view PowerPoints and PDF files. It's quite a powerful little device. Now I understand it's expensive, but comparing it to a cellphone is just unfair.

I still rather use my old nokia that has noting special. i use my psp for everything else on the move, movies, music,photos, internet, games, alarm, e-book reader etc.

I would buy a iphone but to be honest... data plans and bill phones never suit me since my pay-as-you go meteor (network provider) phone can text any other network in the country for free (expect the monthy 20 euro update to keep it).

O, and the fact that O2 in ireland is a complete rip off compered to any of the other phone networks provider.
