Acer Joins Android Army, Demotes Windows Mobile

,----[ Quote ]
| Fanbois and girls alike constantly debate the future mobile
| operating landscape. Is there room enough for all of the
| current platforms or will there be just a few? From a
| consumer standpoint, thereâs room for plenty of competitors
| â after all, choice is good, right? But more choices can
| play havoc with the finances of the companies that produce
| handsets. With a fixed budget of resources â in a tight
| economy, no less â handset makers need to judiciously
| manage their resources and devote them strategically.
| Acer is reportedly doing just that, says Digitimes, and
| theyâre adding to the growing trend of phone makers who are
| joining the Android army.


Linux-based phones : Why are GNU/Linux users treated as second class?

,----[ Quote ]
| Iâm aware that some will read this post as me whining
| because I bought an HTC Hero without checking if it worked
| with my GNU/Linux box. Just to be clear: I was fully aware
| of these limitations prior to purchase. I donât tend to
| sync my mobile devices with my desktop(s). I do back them
| up and right now thatâs all I need. So in reality the sync
| issue isnât a problem for me â other than the firmware
| upgrade for which I must borrow a Windows box. But I â like
| many â chose the HTC because the software it was based upon
| was free and I wanted to support companies and products
| which utilised it. The same thing applies to other
| manufacturers. So, specifically HTC: Where is the synching
| and upgrading for non-Windows users? and generally for all:
| Because of your use of free software, GNU/Linux users are
| an increasing part of your customer-base, start recognising
| and addressing that factor you may well lose our custom.
