Introduction

Phones

Motorola Droid 2



Featu
res:


The phone also has pre
-
loaded applications like NFL Mobile, Need for Speed Shift,
Skype Mobile, Blockbuster On Demand, a Kindle feature and a handful of integrated
Google services. The Droid 2 has a little bit of the Droid X in its storage ca
pacity, which
can grow to a massive 40
-
gigabytes, and its ability to act as a 3G mobile hotspot for up to
five other devices. It has a bit of the first Droid in it, too, in that it still has a 5.0
-
megapixel camera, something a few newer Droids have moved p
ast.



Carrier:

Verizon



Opinion of Verizon:


Great network, but I am upset that all Verizon phones require a data plan as of
Jan.2010



Plan Options:



If cost were no option,would I get this phone:


I would buy this phone if funds were unlimited



If I have to pay all costs,would I get this phone:


If I had to pay for the whole venture, no I would not buy this phone

Samsung Epic 4G

The latest in the Samsung Gal
axy S family of phones, Sprint's Epic 4G runs on the
Google Android 2.1 platform and features a 4.0

inch "Super AMOLED" touch screen

gigahertz processor and supports
blazing
-
fast WiMax 4G connectivity for
data downloads. It also doubles as a hotspot for
up to five Wi

Fi devices to share the 4G simultaneously. With its slide
-
out QWERTY
keyboard and social media apps, the phone makes staying connected with friends on
Facebook and Twitter a snap. Other feature
s include Bluetooth capability, Swype text
entry and a 5.0
-
megapixel camera with high
-
definition video recording. For navigation,
the Epic comes downloaded with Google's Navigation app but can also subscribe to
Sprint's Navigation service.



Carrier:



Sprint



Opinion of Sprint:


Sprint is a decent carrier, their network is not as robust as Verizon but costs less.



Plan Options:



If cost were no option,would I get this phone:


Perhaps not, it seems inferior to the Droid. And
runs an earlier version of the same
OS



If I have to pay all costs,would I get this phone:


No

3G, longer battery life, an internal compass,

e individual plans, family plans, pre
-
paid plans, and data
-
plans.




IF COST WAS NO OBJECT WHAT WOULD I GET?

I would get the iPhone 4G.




IF I HAVE TO PAY ALL THE COSTS WHAT WOULD I GET?

I would and do have the i
-
Phone 3GS.


Conclusion


I
n conclusion
, with the advance in cell phones comes many powerful tools to the
user. Instant access to email and the internet anywhere enables the user to be far more
productive than before. But this technology comes at a price, both financial and
otherw
ise. These phones are just downright expensive, from the hardware to the apps to
the plans. And from my observations, people with these phones are always glued to them.
To them it seems the piece of plastic in their hand is mo
re important than anything
else.
