Kasey sent me an exciting press release this weekend from EverNote Corporation announcing that Fujitsu will include EverNote on their LifeBook notebook and Stylistic Tablet PC device. If you buy a new LifeBook P1610 Tablet PC that also has a touchscreen display you will get EverNote Plus and EverNote ritePen. EverNote Plus is a great application that lets you capture and organize data quickly and easily. ritePen is a handwriting recognition application that lets you write anywhere on the display of a Tablet PC. This latest partnership is great for both companies and if you haven't tried EverNote for yourself I highly encourage you to download a copy today.

I was browsing the T-Mobile USA website checking out the possibility of picking up my own RIM BlackBerry Pearl when I saw that the T-Mobile Dash has now fallen to US$149.99 after a US$100 instant discount and US$100 mail-in rebate.

The QWERTY keyboard smartphone market is hot right now and there are plenty of options for gift givers with multiple carriers.

I thought the ads were pretty funny and if you check them out make sure to watch the outtakes as well for a few more laughs. I am using a Windows Mobile T-Mobile Dash and this device lets me conduct a lot of my work on the go, especially these last couple days when I have had 3 hour commutes with the snow and ice in Western Washington.
Last week the U.S. Copyright Office issued a ruling that states cell phone owners are allowed to break their software locks on their devices. There has been quite bit of talk about this on the internet, but the ruling doesn't state anything about requiring wireless carriers to unlock your phone.
