Analyst: “Honeycomb Has Little Chance of Mass Adoption”
Oh boy, here we go. This next post will no doubt start a flame war somewhere. Trip Chowdhry, an analyst from Global Equities Research, has based his entire forecast of Honeycomb’s success on the Motorola XOOM. Saying that Android 3.0 is “by the geeks, for the geeks, and of the geeks”, Chowdry complains of the XOOM’s battery life, standby time, and overall bugginess. And for that, he sees little promise in Honeycomb.
I hate to break it to ya Trip, but this sounds exactly like what you “analyst” types were saying about the G1 and Android back in 2008. Hope your words are tasty because we can’t wait to see you eat ’em. Someone should tell him about maintenance releases, patches, and updates. Oh, and while you’re at it, let him know that not all hardware is created the same.
Yeesh, some people.
