    Zinio is not a phone

    Also does anyone else think this leads to an eventual larger problem?

    Welcome to the revolution!

    Check out the Phone Comparison. The Sensation is going to be a huge hit.

    As you get started in Android, check out the Getting Started thread for help especially with transferring over contacts, calendar, photos, music, videos, etc. And then see the walkthrough on the Settings.

    Oops. fixed.

    Look at it this way. This is devices, not just phones.

    Each maker needs at least one good offering at each of the roughly 7 sizes:
    S <3" phone
    M 3.5" phone
    L 4" phone
    XL 4.3" phone
    XXL 4.5"+ phone
    XXXL 7"-9" tablet
    XXXXL 10"+ tablet

    Each US carrier wants a version of each size customized for them:
    At&T
    Sprint
    T-Mobile
    US Cellular
    Verizon
    and at least one in each size for the rest of the world.

    The primary makers are HTC, LG, Motorola, Samsung, and Sony so you have:
    7 sizes x 6 carriers x 5 makers = 210 Android devices in the market plus the other 8 makers.

    There are only 98 Android devices int he market right now. Of the 60 new Android, 45 will replace existing models. They still will need at least 100 more current models. And then everything has to be refreshed every year at least.

    Android is seeing 400,000 activations/day right now or about 145 million a year and the activations are increasing rapidly. If Android does 200 million activation this year, they need about 200 models to each do about 1 million each.

    Think of it like athletic shoes. How many different models does Nike need to have one model for each of the 12 common sizes in the 7 main types for men and women? But they have multiple styles for each segment and size. And there are 4 other major brands. But if you are trying on shoes, there may only be 2 pairs that you can really consider out of a store inventory of 1000 pairs.

    Smartphones went from one-size-fits-all Palm then BlackBerry then iPhone to styles and sizes for everyone.

    Just like shoes, get whatever feels best to you.
