The carriers are working hard to find the right device to catch the growing market, but I am not sure that anyone knows how to catch our attention.
Palm has the Pre being marketed with and without Sprint, but last years CES darling is not exactly looking to build a ground swell of community. Which is a shame since they still have a lot of loyal palm customers.
Likewise HTC is making an effort to support their customers with commercials.
The reality is that social networks maybe the best way to communicate to the most likely customers.
The Fan Clubs of the devices on Facebook maybe the best place to reach early adopters.
Its clear the carriers are anxious to avoid another breakout by rivals.
