So I have a question. Now that the trophy has been out for a bit....how's it doing? Have you heard any news about how it's selling any people asking for it from you. Anything you've heard would be nice to know about. Thanks :)

I haven't sold one yet, and there has been no feedback at all from my fellow reps about customers asking for it. I've most definitely been mentioning it, but customers are buying up/asking for Apple and Google.

I understand, and think it's great so many of you support Windows and think it's superior, but now that the phone has been released, I'm reading a lot of the same glitches that all of the other OS's have, so bottom line, it's no better or worse then the others. And you can' t deny the success that Google and Apple have/have had.

You can't get any raw data from this, but at the time of this post there are 232 reviews for the HTC Trophy and 186 reviews for the Motorola Droid X2, which was released the same day, on Verizon Wireless's website. There are tons of factors that could play into this, but it seems like the phone is selling well for being a single phone, at least on the website. However, there are obviously multiple Android devices on Verizon's lineup, but I don't think you could ever say it isn't selling in general, just not at particular locations.

But you also have to remember that the Trophy is a brand new product while the DX2 is a very underwhelming update to a hugely successfull phone. A good amount of Dx users are choosing not to upgrade because they will get so little out of it: a slightly newer processor that is now dual core but the same screen and unibody, an older version of Android than is now available on the DX, and they loose a physical camera button.Verizon Cel Phone Enthusiast :)

I'm a bit slow but it just occurred to me. Why does Android have so many different phones with so many different specs. It must be a nightmare for the vendors to keep up with training of their people, updating so many versions of Android software. I'm using a Droid X for a few days and I must say. I am in a quandry as to what version of OS I have, which of the many Fart programs to download.
I'm going back to my Trophy and float along till Mango comes. Remember the Nancy Reagan slogan of "Say no to Drugs". Well I think Microsoft should adopt a variation of the theme with: "It just works!".
It was mentioned above how Verizon got Android going with the "Droid Does" ad program. Wouldn't something like "It just works" be something that MS and Nokia and others could use to show the masses that there is an alternative to IOS and Android?
It's Monday early morning and my brain is racing. Sorry for the silly ideas.

This is actually a GOOD thing and has contributed to Android's collossal growth. All iPhones are exactly the same (with each generation) other than the color and memory capacity. If a person does not like that design they have no choice but to live with it. Most WP7 phones are more or less the same too (different innards and different sizes but for the most part they are all black slabs). Android has phones of all shapes sizes and configurations. Black slap, front facing keyboard, side slide out keyboard, different screen sizes and resolutions, front and rear cameras. Android has it all, and at varying price points.
Dieter Bohn told Phil (Nickenson, the Android Central Editor) in n A Central podcast last year, that carriers are going to use Android to replace feature phones and he is right. Walk into any carrier store you are going to see maybe a third of the feature phones you did even a year ago. Some are WP7, iOS, or Blackberry but the vast majority are Android.Verizon Cel Phone Enthusiast :)
