Re: Prime
Yes, I think the Prime-Sprint deal is only good if you want to use it, say, around the holidays for shipping, then cancel. It's not a bad thing, though, to have that option. And as you say, it's definitely another way for both Sprint and Amazon to differentiate themselves. Since content will be another tool of differentiation into the future of telecommunications, Sprint's deal with Amazon could pay bigger dividends in the future.

Re: AT&T again with an Android fork phone...
Amazon seems to continue to have the "golden touch"--and maybe some of that "golden touch" might rob off Sprint Eventually as Amazon just came out with earnings and it blew away all expectations.     I could not help but wonder how long this juggernaut will actually continue!!!

Re: Prime
I too can't really comprehend the Sprint Amazon deal other than it breaks up the annual fee into monthly payments and maybe a bit of brand recognition for both companies to get the names out there in additional advertising. And it will be interesting to watch the IoT scene when "customers can simply and securely connect and control millions of IoT devices."

Re: AT&T again with an Android fork phone...
To me, it doesn't make sense for anyone to try and compete on phone hardware. Leave it to the folks who've figured out a way to somehow make money out of the devices and compete on software and services. In AT&T's case, they have so many other areas in which they have the edge that it seems odd to focus on hardware, one of the few areas they don't have a foothold, unless that's the only reason they're targeting it.

Re: AT&T again with an Android fork phone...
The choices are Dizzying--no question.    But, I'd lean towards continuing to stay positive especially with the Apps Ecosystem I depend on as I develop my start-up (including Animoto et. al)

Re: AT&T again with an Android fork phone...
@mhhf1ve that is very annoying. I run into that every once in a while even on my very simple phone.

Re: AT&T again with an Android fork phone...
> "too much bloatware as it is..."

It's actually gotten much better recently, hasn't it? Apple iOS devices are an expensive option to avoid bloatware (unless you consider Apple's own apps bloatware), but Google has done a semi-decent job of keeping some egregious bloatware in check.

It's a lot better than some of the older phones I've owned in the past... which were just filled with a minefield of useless apps that could be inadvertently opened to charge you for some service you never wanted to use in the first place.

Re: AT&T again with an Android fork phone...
@mhhf1ve agreed, we get way too much bloatware as it is.

AT&T again with an Android fork phone...
Last week, I thought it was an April Fool's joke that AT&T was going to try making its own Android-based Cyanogen phone with ZTE. It sounds like AT&T wants to keep trying to weaken Google's grip on the pre-loaded software on smartphones, but given that Amazon's Fire OS phone didn't really go anywhere... A Cyanogen phone from AT&T with bloatware is probably not going to get too many buyers either.

Re: A Funny Fools Joke
The "real reality" joke is quickly been over-used... Google's Cardboard Plastic joke did it, too... and it's just not that funny.
