Samsumg Blade vs. Motorola RAZR

David Pogue of the NY Times wrote a nice (and somewhat humorous) article comparing the RAZR and the Blade.  In summary, though the Blade is a physical knockoff of the more elegant RAZR, the RAZR's software is cloogy in comparison.

Excellent UI is key to making music devices sticky.  (see any iPod)  Motorola’s challenge with iRadio is that it has to work on any portable device with any configuration of buttons.  The iRadio team will need to invest serious resources into software design and GUI (graphic user interface) if they want to hit a homerun.

Just got some junk mail today from Sprint, they may be the first ones to sell these phones, and they are also going to offer streaming music as well as downloads.

Called 'Powervision', they will have six channels of music, and live TV and some other stuff, plus a music store to buy downloads from.

Here's the website as shown in the mailer.

Thanks for the info!
It sounds like Powervision and iRadio will be competing head-to-head for consumer mobile music mindshare... Are the 6 channels of music downloaded, or streamed real time?

The choice may become: 435 iRadio music channels vs. 6 music channels + TV...

Interesting -- thanks!
