i know some people feel cheated having boughten a droid, because every month a better, new and improved model comes out. i personally am probably one of the worst. (i have commitment issues..) But, in two years, when a million of us droid users will have our contracts expire, the phones will be peaking much stronger than they are now.
this probably doesn't make sense because new "superphones" are coming out every week. but, the superphones of 2012 will be lightyears above the superphones of 2011 (much farther ahead than 2011 was to 2010, respectivally).
why? well, (THIS IS MY OWN WEIRD PERSONAL OPINION (that probably makes no sense (which i'm probably jus saying to make myself feel better))) the superphone of 2012 will pretty much be at the spot where they can replace laptops.
in one years time, we will get the specs pretty much nailed down. 1.5 gb ram. 1.5 ghz processor. (yes i know outrageous, but every week they grow ton with each phone so why not). but these will take time to perfect and ballance out with battery life and performance, and weight, and bugs, and features, so in 2 years they will be perfect. ALSO, if an iphone comes out in the next year, that will only feed the laptop-replacing phone revolution. with all the specs, features, accesories, and perfection of future (2 year) superphones. BUT,... why wont they keep growing this rapidly after 2 years, well because they will be so poweful and laptop replacing, that small tweaks, features, and specs will be added the next year, then in 4 years, well Who Knows..
thank you, i hope this made some sense, but i really just wanted to type it out to make myself feel better, and to see if ANYONE agrees. (and i hope you could understand my arguments).
I thought the entire thing up in like 20 minutes, so its not put together greatly.
p.s.- they will replace laptops eventually. its not even a question. Soon bluetooth keyboards will be small and portable and very easy to use on a phone. (i figure that is the one thing that makes laptops a question, the keyboard, but a tiny foldable BT keyboard can fix that.
Edit: I forgot: why now if android has been out for years? Well that's simply because android was on tmobile and is now on every network and with the droid campaign has quickly become the forefront operating system for smartphones
Edit 2: honestly, I LOVE my droid, I'm not saying I'm already ready to upgrade, I'm not THAT discontent of a person. However, I think many droid users get a little envy when they hear about a phone with specs twice as good. BUT I REALLY AM CONTENT WITH MY DROID, I JUST WANTED TO SEE IF ANYONE AGREES WITH MY PROPOSITION
