I'd like to see the new Droids that are coming out as well.
I am really feeling like I need to buy a phone with NFC. This stuff takes off so fast once people realize how useful it is.
Galaxy S III is NFC, right?
Its kinda like buying a new TV. Sure the non-HD TV does everything you want, but why wouldn't you want a TV that has all the features that are out? Kinda like how I feel about the iPhone. Sure the new iPhone has plenty of good features, but why wouldn't you want NFC?
It seems to me that it's not entirely clear that any one phone has the absolute best specs and features. It depends on which specs and features are most important to you.
A thing I like also about the SIII is the removable battery and memory. If the current battery isn't lasting long enough for me, I can buy a bigger battery. Can't do that with iPhone or Razr. Or if I've realized I've run out of memory, I can add a bigger SD card to beef up my memory. So sure, my phone comes with 16GB, but I have a 32GB SD card as well, so I should have no problem running out of space.
To me there's not much difference between Lumia 920/Iphone 5/GS III. Most people stick with what they have because all the money invested in their respective app ecosystem.
I'd like to try out WP8 or IOS 6 but I'm not purchasing all the games/apps I have all over again.
This thread needs more politics.
The iPhone Stimulus:http://www.nytimes.com/2012/09/14/op...ulus.html?_r=1A recent research note from JPMorgan argued that the new iPhone might add between a quarter- and a half-percentage point to G.D.P. growth in the last quarter of 2012. How so? First, the report argued that Apple was likely to sell a lot of phones in a short period of time. Second, it noted that although iPhones are manufactured overseas, most of the price you pay when you buy one is domestic value-added — retailing and wholesaling, advertising and profits — all of which counts as part of G.D.P. Finally, it took some plausible guesses about the price of each phone and the number of phones sold, and used those guesses to make an estimate of the impact on G.D.P.
It’s all pretty straightforward. But the implications are wider than most people realize.
The crucial thing to understand here is that these likely short-run benefits from the new phone have almost nothing to do with how good it is — with how much it improves the quality of buyers’ lives or their productivity. Such effects will kick in only over the longer run. Instead, the reason JPMorgan believes that the iPhone 5 will boost the economy right away is simply that it will induce people to spend more.
And to believe that more spending will provide an economic boost, you have to believe — as you should — that demand, not supply, is what’s holding the economy back. We don’t have high unemployment because Americans don’t want to work, and we don’t have high unemployment because workers lack the right skills. Instead, willing and able workers can’t find jobs because employers can’t sell enough to justify hiring them. And the solution is to find some way to increase overall spending so that the nation can get back to work.
(assuming cars made in Detroit cost no more than $200)

The specs argument is so hard to really distinguish. You can say a phone has a better CPU, but what are you really talking about? Can you really tell that your browser booted up a second faster or that a game is running a couple fps better? I don't think so.

"Weak right 40 gut. Yum! Yum! How bout that one baby!"
couple of questions.
i've been using android for several years (with no complaints) but would like to give the iphone a try.
1. how much are they with a 2 year contract? (verizon)
2. is learning the ios going to be like starting over or will most of it kind of feel intuitive from my android experience?
3. will i be able to use my old android (incredible) as kind of a mini tablet without having service on it?
I have the SIII and use Google Wallet everywhere it is available. I think its pretty sweet feature as well as DLNA and WiFi Direct.
Just some things NFC can do
