Regulators should put wireless operating systems on probation

The regulators like the CRTC, Ofcom, FCC should be concerned with the opening up of wireless phone operating systems. It is a hacker's dream come true and will likely create vulnerabilities that are beyond the control of a telephone company's ability to secure, operate or manage if hacked.

My First Week With DROID

The Verizon/Motorola DROID is by far the most powerful and versatile smartphone I have yet encountered. My first week with the device was one of joy, adapting to the learning curve of the Android OS, and understanding the device's limitations.

King of the QWERTYs: T-Mobile Dash 3G

We posted the first of three parts of the King of the QWERTYs feature with the BlackBerry Tour and now are moving on to take a look at the T-Mobile Dash 3G. You can check out my earlier review for some other thoughts on the device since this feature will look at a few specific categories across all three forward facing QWERTY devices and won't cover the device in detail.

July 17, 2009 by podcast 19, back to chat with Joel about mobile gadgets

My mobile writing career really began with back in 2001 when Chief Geek, Joel Evans, gave me the chance to write about the latest PDA. My first short post was actually about the HP 565 Pocket PC in August 2001. Joel and Sal asked me to participate in this week's podcast and I had a great time sharing my thoughts on the latest gear and mobile news on podcast 19. We covered several topics and I think the show sounds great.

Windows Mobile; an operating system for adults

I just posted my first impressions of the SE XPERIA X1a, which is the Windows Mobile device with the highest specifications available today. Then I read Zack's post a bit later today slamming Windows Mobile so I thought it would be appropriate to address his issues and post why I think Windows Mobile still has a lot to offer even though today they get no respect, as Rodney would say.

7 reasons why the BlackBerry Curve 8900 is my perfect companion

Research in Motion via their PR company sent me a BlackBerry Curve 8900 to play with for a fortnight. I've just spent the last three days writing a post, of which by in the end of it thought was a load of boring, rambling nonsense, comparing the BlackBerry to a Windows Mobile device (which has been done anyway).

Review: Over 260 images and 5 videos of the T-Mobile G1 Google Android device

The biggest mobile news of 2007 was definitely the Apple iPhone and I think the biggest news of this year is the Google Android. I enjoyed my trip out to see the T-Mobile G1 launch last month and have now had the opportunity to use the T-Mobile G1 for almost a week. As a long time T-Mobile customer I am pleased to finally see a 3G device and one as functional and powerful as the G1. The G1 is not perfect, what mobile device is?, but after getting to spend time with it I am very pleased and happy I pre-ordered my own for delivery next week. You can check out my hardware image gallery with 57 pictures and my other image gallery with over 215 images that show every screen on the device, including pop-ups and options that appear with tap and holds on the display. I also have included 5 YouTube videos that show the device in action. The T-Mobile G1 is the first Google Android device and as I state below, the future success is largely dependent on developer ingenuity and involvement.
