01/06/2009 - Too Many Android Phones to Count
The execs at Google are happy to let the public know that no less than 18 handsets running Android will be on the shelves by year end, for sale and ready for use. Most of these handsets, though, will not be available in the US. And, the OEMs of these handsets are not being publicised.

It wasn't until late 2007 that Android was released on the carriers, and most phones take 18 months on average from concept to being on a shelf for sale. Meaning, we are actually about to see the promise of numerous handsets hitting the marketplace. Its not a big mystery who the OEMs are (check out the open handset alliance list of OEMs), with HTC, Moto, Samsung and others all making announcements over the last year. For Moto in particular, there is a lot riding on the introduction of their first Android device. many pundits have weighed in on the coming Android tidal wave, its good fun watching as the market takes shape. Releases never happen as quickly as you would like, and certainly speculation is rampant on the impact Android will have on the smartphone market place. Apple is kicking ass right now, Blackberry is dominant for business users and Nokia sells more phones than every other OEM combined. Android has a big challenge ahead in terms of gaining marketshare.

Matt Richtel does a nice job on the NYTimes blog on the subject. My favorite part, though, comes from one of the comments:

Rumors of ATT and Verizon bringing out android phones seems interesting since neither belong to the open handset alliance but I think are charter members of the Crippled Handset Alliance.

Its so true that those two firms go out of their way to simultaneously claim they are 'open' and yet produce the most closed systems and devices.

24/11/2008 - Inventory Problems Cloud Storm's Launch

Whether the long, cold waits - and, for many, ultimately empty-handed departures - were down to a security issue or general inventory problems is still not clear.

28/07/2008 - Verizon gets a bite of Apple's success

Verizon Wireless has exceeded analysts’s predictions and posted impressive second quarter earnings of US$1.88 billion.
A key factor in the results was increased smartphone sales, which now account for 30 per cent of the US carrier’s device sales.
Denny Strigl, Verizon’s president and COO, even went as far as to give the build up of interest for the 3G iPhone’s launch earlier this month some of the credit for his company’s results.

20/06/2008 - Popularity of RIM's Blackberry Curve points to strong Q1 results for handset maker

The success of Research In Motion’s Blackberry Curve will ensure the company announces good first quarter 2008 results, according to analysts.
Simona Jankowski, an analyst with Goldman Sachs, said results, driven by US sales of its Curve at Verizon Wireless, were likely to be at the high end of current guidance when revealed on June 25.
“Our view is based on very strong retail checks suggesting that the Curve remains the most popular device among consumers and small and medium businesses alike, partially offset by a softer enterprise environment,” she said.
