Other cellphone providers

Now that the you-know-what hoopla has come and gone, I'm wondering how much real competition it will be, and what Verizon, Sprint, and T-Mobile will be doing to respond to it.

From my observations, it seems like the market segment that buys the T-Mobile Sidekick seems to be the most heavily impacted because that is the segment that views style over substance.

Regardless, I hope they have some good WM 6 based PocketPC based phones coming out, preferably better than current offerings by a decent amount.

Are you implying that "you-know-what" is living up to the "hoopla?"

I forgot the psychological term for it, think cognitive dissonance, where even if something sucks, if its highly expensive and sought after where people pay a great price for it in time and money, people will make up reasons to justify why they did what they did.

As for phone companies, I'm hoping that T-Mobile makes a decent PocketPC based phone. The Wing is just an MDA with a little bit more memory, and WM6. :/
