Mobile phone maker HTC surged in popularity with phones like the HTC Touch, and the HTC TyTN II. However, recently HTC found discord with users for failing to deliver mobile phones with appropriate video drivers.
When HTC buyers voiced their concern, HTC issued a statement that suggested users buy newer models to get fully functional devices. As a result talk of a class action lawsuit against HTC is now circulating.
The maker of the popular high selling LG Chocolate, LG Electronics is another mobile phone handset manufacturer that can use the Open Handset Alliance to boost their presence.
I hope that by conforming to the Android standard LG will no longer deliver mobile phones to the US that are behind what LG delivers elsewhere. An example of this would be the LG VU highlighted at CES and the LG Viewty.
The Open Handset Alliance is a perfect opportunity for Motorola to rebound from recent market failures and leadership changes. Motorola CEO Greg Brown must decide how Motorola will grow under his leadership.
At this point, the choices appear to be providing cheap phones to the masses or by dominating the smartphone arena and by creating better convergence devices. I’m hoping for the second option.
In recent years, Samsung has created several attention grabbing mobile phones, but has not released a popular feature rich handset for the US. The Samsung Blackjack and Blackjack II are the best attempts.
By taking advantage of the Android platform, Samsung can focus on creating and releasing more powerful, feature rich phones to more users.
At this point, Android dominance is up for grabs. I hope that the companies take advantage of this period of transition in mobile technology. Now is a great opportunity, seize the moment and do something significant.
