Innovation in the mobile market and a surge of available Android devices have created strong interest in this platform. An Android device may be an option for those who want to:
- Upgrade from their older devices (e.g., Palm OS, Windows Mobile 5 and 6)
- Use an iPhone-like alternative with comparable capabilities
Although many of the latest devices — like Verizon's Droid X, Sprint's Epic 4G, and AT&T's Captivate — are being shipped with Android 2.1 software, IS&T expects these devices to be updated to Android 2.2 and can therefore recommend them.
REMINDER: All of the major carriers offer special pricing to MIT faculty, staff, students and affiliates. To compare service discounts, place device orders, get device upgrades, or request discounted service pricing for a phone you already have, go to IS&T's Cellular Telephones page, click on a vendor's link, and enter their site by clicking the Place Order button (certificates required).
If you have questions or need assistance setting up your device, see the Mobile Ninja in Hermes or contact the Mobile Devices Team.
