smartphones stories

For smartphones to be embraced by 100% of the cellphone universe (and completely choke AT&T), they're going to have to be a lot easier to use. Or, there's got to be some dead-simple training tools to bring the uninitiated into the fold.

Google's already making great strides with its Android operating system, accounting for 28% of all smartphone sales in North America, compared to the iPhone's 21%. Now it's taken another leap forward with Android 2.2. Known as Froyo, the new version is at least two times faster than version 2.1, and in some instances a whole lot faster than that.
