Does it concern anyone that the Moment is not popular?

What I mean is that until this past weekend there was hardly any advertizing. Some of the major accessory providers like Seidio don?t even support the product. Maybe Sprint has other plans for their Android Keyboarded phone.
However when I was in my Sprint store the agents were pushing the Moment real hard.

One of the reason's I've thought about the Hero, because if the Moment isn't popular, then why would Sprint take time to update the firmware? I'm wondering if they're waiting for the Moment with the tv chip?

I've been seeing, both in stores and on tv, Sprint revving up the Moment's ads a little bit more than usual. Talked to quite a few reps that have it as their personal phone, and they love it (so far as I've seen). I think, especially with the new DTV chip, the Moment will start to move into the same light as the Hero. When you compare the specs, the Moment is the second fastest Android-powered smartphone on the market right now (behind the N1).

I think we're going to start seeing a whole lot more of the Moment (but not too much more..this is Sprint after all. lol)

I've seen the Moment in Sprint commercials.

moment was released in november... and just now their advertisements have come out. :) i think sprint was pushing the hero late last year...

plus, like someone said earlier, with the moment version 2 with the dtv chip, i think they're going to be pushing it even harder. hopefully, some accessory companies (seidio especially) will pick it up.

Oh yeah, I remember seeing a whole crap-load of HTC Hero commercials but just recently I started seeing the Moment being featured. :)

Sprint could capture the market if they lowered the price a bit just to slide under the Vz Android (Pun in there somewhere)

But this worries me that I may have a dead end device. Time will tell so I hope the 2.x loadware slides out real soon. (Pun # 2).

The worst case would be to see adds for the new Moment II with HDtv. That would suck.

It's a device that runs Android with an 800MHz processor. Not exactly what I call a deadend device. I mean the 8330 Curves are due for and update that device has been on the market for almost 3 years now. 2 Years as a CDMA device. That and seeing the new Sprint commercials with the moment, is very cool.

We will get 2.1 Love. It is DESTINED!!

. When you compare the specs, the Moment is the second fastest Android-powered smartphone on the market right now (behind the N1).

Just looking at Megahertz is not an accurate way of determining how fast or powerful a piece of technology is. The Moment has an 800 megahertz processor, the Droid has a 550mhz but it also has a powerful Graphics Processing Unit built in (GPU). As far as I know, the Moment doesn't have this. Translation: The 3D graphics in Android 2.1 will likely work better on the Droid than the Moment (Note, the N1 is 1Ghz and has a GPU, woah!).

So it's probably a great phone, and fast, but not the second fastest when you break it down.

Every device is a dead-end device. It's just a question of how soon.
