At T-Mobile, they don't seem to have a competitive product (despite the long warning from Steve Jobs). What they do have is some catchy slogans: "Phones you love. Plans you want. Free shipping on all phones!"
At Sprint, they ask if you want to experience life at SprintSpeed™ and have an exclusive product called the Upstage™ by Samsung in a cool red color.
Motorola has the MOTOROKR 26™, which seems to be targeted to the 18-to-35-year-old-music-loving-men segment. With clean lines and an appealing silhouette, MOTOROKR Z6™ slider is true Motorola high fashion!
The Samsung Black Carbon™ is part of Samsung's Ultra Edition line, and for good reason. It's ultra thin, ultra powerful and ultra cool. There's a lot of good stuff packed into this beautifully sculpted, stylish slim slider, including global GSM quad-band flexibility.
LG has the Born to Shine™, which is a shiny mirrored finished metal body phone. "The moment you place "Shine" on a table, you will notice how the attractive features of this phone catch the attention of those close by. This is a natural human reaction to all things that shine. Its design was inspired by the luxurious shine of metal, creating a simple yet chic look and feel that will undoubtedly make you and your phone stand out from the crowd." Wow!
Nokia is the only one that I saw, thanks to Giga OM's blog, that has a competitive product. It's the Nokia N800, which supports Skype, has an Adobe Flash browser plug-in for watching videos on the go and supports up to 8GB memory cards. Well, those are three things Apple's iPhone can't do!
Where's the buzz? I am not sure. Frankly, I would have expected a much more aggressive assault on the iPhone given all the warning and flawless drop date by Apple. But I guess I am just way too competitive!
