T-Mobile Sidekick 3 Review at Gizmodo

2 August 2006

Gizmodo reviews the T-Mobile Sidekick 3 and writes – ‘The trackball is a real winner. It lights up with all the colors of the rainbow—actually about 10—and is one of the best user interface tools I’ve seen on a phone. Phone manufacturers take note: Please let this be a rule, not an exception. Use the […]

T-Mobile Sidekick 3 Review

30 July 2006

The original Sidekick was released over 3 years ago, and was a hugely popular device. It’s successor followed the same path, and for that reason, I have no doubt that the Sidekick 3 will be very very successful. I’ll be the first to admit that this device isn’t for me, but that doesn’t make it […]

Stylus Pens

9 July 2006

I lost the stlyus for my Treo 700p a few weeks back, and finally got around to ordering a 3 pack of stylii, with the ballpoint pen on the other end. Pretty nice stylii, and I’m sure they’ll come in handy sometime. Of course, about an hour after I got the package, I found the […]

UMPC’s Suck

17 June 2006

I know.. not smartphones. Whatever. UMPC’s suck – and I called it way back in March. So hah! It turns out the rest of the world is catching on to the fact that they are, in fact, useless. They are too big to fit in your pocket, and thus serve no purpose. If I’m going […]

Who uses their IR port?

11 June 2006

A Treocentral topic inspired this post. One of the members, a new 700p owner, is trying to find a use for every feature on his new device Here’s my take. I think nowadays, bluetooth is the new IR. Most devices come with BT so sending stuff is not only easier ( no lining up ) […]

Vodafone, a large mobile phone company in the UK, just posted the largest corporate loss in the history of the UK. Now that’s serious.

Just announced, and soon to be live, YouTube is coming out with a mobile video upload service. What does that mean to you? All those goofy videos you took with your Treo or other smartphone can go straight to YouTube – without transferring to your computer first. Neato. Via TreoToday.

Brighthand has a list of the top 10 most popular smartphones and PDA’s for this past month, April 2006. The Treo 700w took top place, which should come as no surprise to anyone here. What did surprise me a bit was the Treo 650 – it ranked 5th on the list. For as long as […]

A company called Eye-Fi is finally working on a solution to the old WiFi SD card problem. With the current cards, you have to remove your memory card to insert your WiFi card. You also have to have a big goofy looking card sticking out of your SD card slot. Eye-Fi decided to put the […]

T-Mobile Sidekick III Receives FCC Approval

26 April 2006

For reasons unbeknownst to me, the Sidekick devices always prove to be pretty popular. I think there are much, much better devices out there, with better form factors, more features, and more overall functionality. But who am I to judge? You likes what you likes, and you buys what you likes. Via Dave’s PDA.

Faculty and students say the technology saves time and helps them provide better care, in addition to reducing medical errors. […]

Smartphones better than iPods?

5 April 2006

Duh. Of course they are. Either one of my smartphones does everything an iPod can do, and so much more. However, the iPod is sucessful to two main reasons I can see. For one, it is simple – it does exactly what it is supposed to do, exactly the way it is supposed to do […]

UMPC – What’s the point?

29 March 2006

I’m sure everyone who has the internet has heard about the UMPC – Ultra Mobile PC. If you don’ have the internet, then you’re probably not reading this, so I don’t care about you. I want to like the UMPC – I really, really do. After all, I love gadgets of just about every shape […]
