Cingular Joins Platform Committee
Jul 12, 2006, 6:32 PM by (staff)
The OMTP announced that Cingular has joined the association of carriers and manufacturers. The Open Mobile Terminal Platform (OMTP) makes recommendations for handset and interface design based on the needs of carriers. The recommendations tend to focus on creating a friendlier and more secure experience for users, but also include technological requirements as well. Complying with these recommendations should make it faster and easier for a handset to be approved by participating carriers. T-Mobile, Sprint and Cingular now participate in the OMTP as do Nokia, Motorola, Samsung and Sony Ericsson.
Is it possible....
I mean you have the RAZR, and then the Blade, and then the Katana, and now this LG phone... Is it really just a trend, or something that these guys decided was best for the customer, to offer a slim phone for all carriers produced by the top manufatures.
Personally I really don't care that everyone pretty much has a thin phone now. I think the thin phone has become a desgin rather than a copy of the RAZR. You have your candy bar phone, your peanut phone, your flip phone, and now your thin phone.
what about verizon???????????
