Howard Stern Considers Switching to Android, Told to Wait for HTC Merge

Howard Stern recently made his way onto the Android platform through the Sirius app, but if you listened to today’s show, then you’ll know he’s also considering switching to a phone running our favorite OS.  The 10-minute clip below is Howard’s conversation with Gary Dell’Abate (who recently made the jump to Android) and his initial impressions for the “DROID” he just picked up. What’s funny though, is the fact that one of his listeners who is some sort of a phone tester, apparently told him to wait for the HTC Merge to come out before switching over from a Blackberry.  Yeah, the Merge, the same phone that we’ve been told was cancelled on Verizon and is now headed to Alltel.

Clip is NSFW, but you should know that since it’s Howard.

    Baba Booey should make himself a Baba BooApp… any developers up to the task? Maybe a soundboard with his famous songs, and howard’s best insults against him…

      How ignorant. You don’t know why you hate him, you just do? Does and competent adult say things like that. Poop filled toilet? Are you 7? Come on let’s grow up.

    is it just me or does this app NOT multitask???? listening, switch out to text, audio stops after a few seconds…. lame!

    Last week he was talking about all the issues he was having getting the app on Beth’s blackberry. The phone that Gary just got on Saturday is a d2? I just heard him refer to is as a “Droid” so I wasn’t sure. But he kept referring to the buttons so it makes sense.

    sounds like the guy got the DROID 2 Global.
    [mentions “flat keyboard”]

    The problem is, he uses lotus notes. The Lotus Traveler app is horrible.

      Really? How so? It’s quite a bit more functional and intuitive than any of the non-GMail clients you’ll find shipping w/ a current Android device

        I should clarify, that the Travel Server service is the bad part. It’s a total hack of activesync with a focus on iPhone. So instead of being able to use the standard activesync clients out there in the OS, you have to use Lotus’s app which is based on SyncML. The Traveler server had severe issues with multiple directory integrations, lack of features compared to true activesync, etc. The front end server was also very unreliable with stability, thought I think this is more because of the authentication integration “tricks” that were needed.

        We abandoned Lotus all together after so many issues with it, and found that Good messaging was a much better platform for mobile device mess.

    Howard has enough cash to get whatever phone he wants this week and whatever phone he wants next week. Waiting on anything for someone of his resources is pointless. For him, buying a second phone is like what buying a second pack of chewing gum is to us.

    @joe1138 listen to 1 hour… you are misinformed

  • Longhairbilly

    I’m a few days behind. I heard last Tuesdays show today. When Howard was questioning Gary about his Droid 2, he asks was the internet better on the Android over the Blackberry. Gary’s response: “Ya, a little bit”. Really Techno Beaver? I’d say it blows my old Blackberry Tour out of the water.

  • Mayze23

    Who cares. How is this clown still getting airtime? It blows my mind how Stern, Drew Carey and Roseanne Barr ever became popular. All are lame with absolutely no talent whatsoever.

      Wow, another ignorant person who has never really listened to Stem. I used to think the same thing until I started listening, now listen every morning. Apparently millions of people agree with me so he must be doing something a lot better than the mediocre waiter job at O’Charley’s you have for $2 an hour.

      AGREED, I have listened to Stern he is rude crude and worst of all NOT FUNNY!

  • Makebelieve

    best show ever

  • Karnaj

    @joe1138 Have you everactually listened too Stern? If not maybe you should give him a shot. He is one of thebest (if not the best interviewers) in todays Media and extremely entertaining.

    • joe1138

      Yes, I have and I just don’t care for him.

  • Karnaj

    He has said that if he gets a Android phone he will be using the SiriusXM app.

  • joe1138

    Honestly why does anyone listen to this jack-wagon anyway.

    • Bob Jope

      It is called preference. The same things do not appeal to everyone.

      Really, it is that simple.

      • joe1138

        Fair enough. You obviously like him and I don’t. I’ll agree to disagree on this one.
