The buzz is on!
Two smartphones that are quickly rising to the top of the “iPhone killer” queue are the Samsung Google Nexus Prime and the Motorola Droid Bionic.
The combination of runaway word-of-mouth, heavy rotation TV commercials and rampant rumor has generated serious buzz that Apple will have to (1) recognize (2) be sensitive to and aware of, and (3) soon challenge if they desire to and intend to maintain their significant and until now unchallenged leadership position in the emerging smartphone market. That here-to-fore unchallenged label is quickly falling away as leading Android competitors sense a gaping opening made possible due to the lack of an iPhone 5 announcement and Apple’s recent loss of Steve Jobs’ leadership.

The momentous hype that was the heaped upon the false start of the iPhone 4 is carefully being crafted and co-opted by the soon to be unveiled but now delayed Samsung Google Nexus Prime.

Soon I will endeavor to take some time to do in-depth analysis of the potential of each and others if and when I have the opportunity, or I will dutifully point you to other superior sources and resources that do that work.
What is certain is that things are soon about to change. Until now, Apple has had the game all to themselves. That situation is soon to be dramitically altered.
With your help and comments, we will do our best attempt to stay on top of the important blow-by-blow changes to come, as they occur.
Tighten your seatbelts we’re in for a rocky ride ahead as we head towards the holidays and new year.
But the ride won’t begin on schedule.
