About 6 months ago i took a job with a Tech startup in SLC, UT. Best job in the world. I get to travel, be constantly surrounded by technology and the perks that come alongside being with the CEO about 95% of the day... meeting various " big shots" in the mobile and enterprise sectors, mostly on campus.
This brings us to last Thursday. We had just gotten back from our offices in Boise...yes, Boise. Needless to say, I was in some desperate need of sleep. I was locking the door to my office, when my leg started to buzz. erk. The Boss. After no more than 2 minutes, i realized i'd be spending my weekend in San Mateo & Mountain View.
As I''m writing this, GOGO wireless is raping me. I do not believe I should have to pay for wireless on a plane... another time.
Anyways, without going into too much... I was told --- The Nexus Prime is NOT going to be the only ICS phone at launch. Google is very serious about the wide range deployment of ICS and is going to be announcing several Phones at the same time. HTC is in the work to deliver a device running ICS at launch that includes a dedicated Google + button, similar to the salsa or chacha (facebook button), but with no other buttons.
I dunno, this scares me a little bit. can't put my finger on it yet, but ever since we left that meeting i've been sick to my stomach.
Whether they're talking about it or not, I don't see such a device making it to market. It's a corny concept that I don't believe the masses desire. I mean, such a button is a complete waste of device real estate, which is the entire reason they're ditching buttons to begin with (larger screens, smaller phones). Interesting to talk about, sure. But it simply won't be successful if it hits market.
