DOCOMO carries wide Android array

by Breanna Lai, for KUAM News

Guam - If you are hunting for an Android phone, DOCOMO Pacific in has an array of the techiest cellular devices on the market.  Ron Brewster, DOCOMO's product/inventory manager, talked about about the specs of their different Android phones to determine which phone is right for you.  

He gave us a sneak peak to their two latest Android devices - the HTC Desire and the Samsung Galaxy S - both of which will not be on sale to the general public until sometime next week.  "The Desire, is the pseudo-replacement for the Nexus One, it's got a lot of refinements from the Nexus One, it's what I'm carrying right now.  And then we have the Galaxy S its our flagship piece it comes in 8GB, 16GB memory, super dialed very nice beautiful screen very large and they all run the Android operating system, which has a marketplace where you can download addition apps," he said.

So what makes Android applications different from the apps Apple's iTunes offers? Brewster shared why he is partial to these snazzy new gadgets, saying, "The strengths for the Android phone is one that its open source, so anyone who wants to make an app for an Android phone can do so.  So the market place is very broad.  There's a lot of things you wont see on a competitor's marketplace."

Like an iPhone, these Androids also have the capability to go horizontal to view a wide page or to stay vertical for easier scrolling. Some of the phones like the Galaxy S can expand and contract the content on their screens with the pinch-and-zoom feature, much like that of an iPhone.  Brewster says all of these phones have brilliant screens and are great for surfing the web.

"Definitely on the youth side, I would recommend the Xperia X 10 and Pro, its very small and cute you can knock out an e-mail or text message very quickly, so you can stay on top of what's going on with your Facebook contacts or Twitter contacts.  I would say on the business side a good move would be the Galaxy S - very strong, great processor, very robust the keyboard is nice and roomy so its a got a unique texting feature called Swipe, where it allows you to do a word by just to picking a word in your text message by moving your finger over the letter instead of just typing them," he said.

If you like the tactile keyboard of a Blackberry, the Motorola Milestone is right for you. Brewster says another Android popular with business customers is this phone (coincidentally the official phone of KUAM News).

Those of you recreational users that desire an all in one device should check out Sony Ericson's Xperia X10, as it offers all the great Android features with an 8.1 megapixel camera for great pictures and video.  So if you're in the market for a new cell phone, head down to DOCOMO Pacific in Tamuning and check out their latest products.
