So we’re starting to hear a bit more about Android. There’s more at Engadget Mobile. Am I the only one who’s having a hard time getting pumped up about Android? I guess that could change once we see further builds and get closer to the release date.
- Would you accept mobile advertising in exchange for free email service? 79 percent of people surveyed in the UK, German, Italy, Spain, and the U.S. would. Further, 98 percent of consumers said cost is what’s holding them back from trying these next-gen services.
- Next time you’re shopping for a mobile phone, don’t spend as much time comparing prices. Instead, look for other differentiating features, like data, early termination fees, and phone selection.
- More mobile games? We clearly love the idea. Verizon has expanded their game catalog to include “Qwikies.” They’re flash-based mini games, which cost five bucks for two uses. That seems steep. They’re also launching some Flash games through Mobitween.
- Verizon now has an exclusive on the Motorola W755. It looks exactly like the KRZR. Maybe the face will be less fingerprint-prone. It’s $69.99 after a $50 mail-in rebate and the signing of a two-year contract.
