First Reactions to Motorola's Android Phone

winnerThanks to a comment on another post, we’re able to bring you one of the first reactions to Motorola’s inital Android handset.  Here’s what Global Equities analyst Trip Chowdhry has to say

Contacts have seen the new Motorola Android Phone, and all feel the phone is extremely well designed, and probably may be a winner. Contacts tell us that it is slimmer than iPhone, capacitive touch screen seems more precise than iPhone and feels faster than iPhone. The native processing of code on Motorola is much faster than anything out there.

Excited yet?

We can’t tell which handset he is referring, nor whether he knew of others.  Either way, that quote alone is enough to send our pulses racing.

Based on what he’s heard and seen, Chowdry forecasts Motorola to spend at least $70M on advertising.  Could be just what Android needs – a handset maker to advertise on top of whatever else the carriers are doing.
