Mango - Tango: High End - Low End WP Devices for Verizon?
MadDogFL62

Good Lord!  Those Verizon iPhones, Droids and BlackBerries are expensive!  There are so many different models to choose from.  And regardless of what I choose, the cost is still sooooo high.

I think I will go with that prepaid phone from WalMart or Target.  (Bye Bye Customer - Bye Bye Contract - Bye Bye Sales Commission)

Wouldn't it be nice if Verizon could carry a dependable phone with a dependable operating system that was easy to use, easy to support AND came in a variety of prices? 

Land Rover and Kia.  Grady White and Jon Boat.  Harley and Schwinn.  All get you from Point A to Point B and do so in a desired budget and fashion.

So why not the Mango and the Tango WP Phones?  HTC/Samsung/Nokia mac-daddy devices for the high end user and an affordable Nokia/LG for the customer who likes quality and ease - but has a limited budget.  Apple and Google have promised this for years. 

Imagine not losing a customer to a pre paid phone?  Imagine offering a variety of phones that everyone can afford, but only supporting 1 operating system in VZW Support?  If common sense doesn't hit you between the eyes, hopefully greed will! 

Coffee's brewing Verizon.  Wake up and give it a sniff.

Might I add that Tango is an update to Windows Phone that all WP customers will get AT THE SAME TIME for their device!  Just like Mango!

Must be a frreakin' blast at Verizon Support in Georgia with the same phone running a variety of operating systems depending on whether or not the owner was "worthy" of an update.

...is that coffee that I smell???

I think that's one reason why VZW releases so many driods; they don't want to be bother testing/updating the OS for all the driods out there Smiley Happy  Why bother, just release another device; problem solved

How many Motorola devices and how many operating systems?

...and what does "fragmentation" mean?  Does it have anything to do wiht the fact that only 1% of the thousands of Droid phones out there run Ice Cream Sandwich - yet another OS is being pushed out to market?

Time to release some new phones to put a band-aid on that bleeding!
