If you want a question answered in the next segment, just put your question in the comments! Here's what we covered in this episode:
Simple question: Why don't android apps include "close" buttons that will force the program to be removed from memory?
Hardware-wise, the market is now saturated with "me too" 4.3 inchers. I know this is not where screen sizes stop!! I haven't been too excited about mobiles since the first 4.3" HTC HD2 (daily driver, hacked) and Dell Streak (waiting, waiting, waiting, disappointed....did not jump due to ATT + 1.6). I know Acer is outting a 4.8", but seems to be elongated. The 5" 4:3 ratio seems to be a perfect medium with both screen real estate and pocket-ability.
Any forecasts for the next few months on hot mobile hardware coupled with enticing software to get me out of my boredom? Dual Core Streak 5 Opus?!
I'm still using the HTC Touch Pro 2 on Verizon, and have been holding out for an awesome phone all this time. I've been out of contract for over a year, but I don't care much to leave Verizon. I'm deciding between the HTC Thunderbolt and the Motorola Droid Bionic. The Thunderbolt seems to be essentially an HTC EVO on Verizon (with no real upgrades from last years technology), but the Droid Bionic seems to be a promising "future-proof" phone.
Can you do a comparison and possibly a recommendation of the two (HTC Thunderbolt vs. Motorola Droid Bionic)?
Will the next windows device be from Nokia? if not who will beat them to market?
Do you guys at Pocketnow think that Nokia will actually benefit from adapting the WP7 OS or do you think they will end up failing in the end.
What do you think "multitasking apps" means as announced from Microsoft? Do you think this will add some method for fast app switching to wp7?
I have the Samsung Fascinate on Verizon and I wanted to know if I should get a new dual core phone when they come out or just root my Fascinate and try to add faster ROMs
