Bombs away! Smartphone trends that crashed and burned

Quote:
Smartphone makers try a lot of things to get people interested in their phones more than anyone else's. Over time, though, we've seen that risks of the wilder sort often result in spectacular failure, as all but the most niche or misled buyers hew to what they know, and ultimately prefer: predictable, and sometimes pedestrian, hardware features and software services.

Companies that followed these ill-fated trends get credit for trying, but not much else.

I skipped all of it and went from an old flip phone to a Galaxy S II smartphone. What a great difference.

Not sure what's up with HTC I saw a phone of theirs just last year and it was yucky and at&t was pushing it ?
Commercials were just showing a new model supposedly with good speakers but with the track record Pass
It's Android time for me/ After two years with a iphone 4 which is okay but gets buggier every ios update.
