PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "Ballmer's visit takes place shortly after LG Electronics' executive said during an earnings conference session last week that the company is planning to focus on smartphones running on Google's Android mobile operating system. The executive also said LG is taking a step back from Windows phones powered by Microsoft's platform, adding that it will 'continue research and development efforts' on Windows Phones." Anyone surprised by this should have their peepers checked.

...with ICS available on just 1 phone (Nexus) that I know of 6 1/2 months after release


You missed the HTC One S - Gradient Blue on T-Mobile - 4.3-inch 960x540 Super AMOLED screen, 8 MP / VGA cameras, 16 GB flash (no µSD), Snapdragon S4 dual-core 1.5 GHz processor with 1 GB RAM. Not a bad phone.

Also two cousins, the HTC One X on AT&T and Evo 4G LTE on Sprint - larger 4.7-inch, 1280 x720 resolution Super-LCD screen, 8 and 1.3 MP cameras, Snapdragon S4 dual-core 1.5 GHz processor. The One X has 32 GB flash (no µSD), while Evo 4G has 16GB of flash plus a 32 GB µSD.

Not as many options as I would like, but two from each major carrier except Verizon is still a decent presence - the same number of options you have with iPhone, I believe?

Full disclosure: I bought my wife a Nexus for Mother's Day (May 13 in the USA). Shhhh...
