I am a huge fan of Windows Phone and have most all the apps I need on this platform, but there are still some key apps missing and frustrating experiences that keep an iPhone 5 and Galaxy Note II in my mobile collection.
I am not a fan of long term predictions in the mobile space, it just moves too fast, and while I would like to see stats like IDC predicts I will have to see it to believe it.
Speculation on a possible Palm buyer has ranged from Lenovo to HTC to RIM and more. We can now put that all aside and thank the mobile gods that HP is buying Palm for a reported $1.2 billion. As a Palm webOS fan myself I have to say I am rather excited about the news since there is now a large company behind Palm and it looks like webOS will continue to be supported for years to come.
I am a huge Seattle Sounders FC fan and our family is a soccer family so I was pretty excited to hear about and see screenshots from the upcoming MLS mobile application from Cypress. This app will allow me to follow my team and received real time notifications.
I'm a big fan of the Opera browser, both in its grown-up desktop client and its mobile browser. It's my browser of choice on my Blackberry and it, along with Chrome and Firefox, are default options I offer to users.

Given that I've gone from a Windows Mobile fan to something of a Windows Mobile diehard in my phone use (I've been disappointed with the glacial development and short term solutions of the last two Windows Mobile releases even as I've enjoyed new features and the best mobile browser anywhere - Skyfire not Mobile IE, of course), I'm still undecided about how much I like Windows Phone 7.
I've been a fan of Windows Mobile since the first clunky SPV: I have a huge Outlook address book and being able to have all those numbers on my phone automatically, and read my email? That's been awesome for so many years that I can't imagine living without it.

If you're a big HTC fan, well then Christmas has come early for you. Not sure how it happened, but HTC's 2010 portfolio for the first half of the year has been leaked to the web, with images and specific details of at least eight new mobile phones.
Regular readers here know that I am a fan of the Windows Mobile operating system, even though that is not necessarily a popular opinion since it isn't the flashiest and newest OS. I have talked about the strengths of Windows Mobile quite a bit and was pleased to see my friend and MoTR cohost, James Kendrick, post a fair comparison article between Android and Windows Mobile. James takes a look at multi-tasking, available apps, user interface, and computer desktop integration. It was refreshing to see James award the advantage to Windows Mobile in 3 of 4 areas with the last one being a tie.
I posted a quick first impressions of the HTC HD2 yesterday, but as I was commuting home on the train I had a chance to spend more time with the media capabilities of the device and wanted to share a few thoughts and a video with you. As you can see the weather animations alone will turn you into a fan of tracking the weather, the photo viewer rivals the iPhone, and the HTC media player blows away the lame Windows Media Player Mobile application.
I've been a fan of the REDFLY Mobile Companion for a couple of years and purchased the C8N in November 2008. If you remember there are two models of the REDFLY Mobile Companion, the C7 and C8N, that give you a large display and keyboard to use with your Windows Mobile device. Celio Corp has been working on expanding their driver support and we saw a concept for Android back at CES. Today, we see the launch of a BlackBerry driver for selected BlackBerry devices, which makes the most sense considering there are so many BlackBerry devices in enterprise.
I am a fan of the Celio REDFLY Mobile Companion and I do use it with my Windows Mobile devices while I wait for continued driver support for other platforms. Today, Celio Corp announced their drivers for BlackBerry devices would be coming mid-Q4 2009 so this opens up a whole new world for enterprise customers. I think Celio did the right thing in targeting the BlackBerry platform after Windows Mobile because these type of people are a perfect fit for the REDFLY due to the ease of sending a REDFLY Mobile Companion out in the field with a smartphone.
I briefly tried the myTouch 3G and then went and bought the T-Mobile Touch Pro2 thinking these would be the best T-Mobile USA 3G smartphones for a while. We then saw the Nokia N900 announced with support for T-Mobile's 1700 MHz 3G network and I preordered one for myself. Today at the Mobilize 09 conference we heard from Motorola that the CLIQ will be coming to T-Mobile USA this Fall so we will get yet another powerful Google Android device and 3G smartphone on T-Mobile. I was thinking Sprint customers were lucky with all of their new devices (Palm Pre and Pixi, HTC Hero, Touch Pro2) and now we are seeing T-Mobile USA having plenty of options for the smartphone fan and as a long-time T-Mobile customer I couldn't be happier.
Regular readers here know that I am a big fan of the Evernote application that I use on my PC, Mac, and mobile phones. Evernote just announced an amazing new feature for premium subscribers (I have been a premium subscriber since day 1) that I am sure will be great news for many of you. Evernote now supports PDF Search capabilities so the PDF documents you upload to your account go through their search recognition technology engine servers and are fully searchable within minutes.
I recently purchased an HP H470 mobile printer. I have been a long time user and fan of the Canon BJC 50/55/70/80 series, but they stopped selling those quite a few years ago, and my last one has been slowly dying recently.
I admit to being a fan of Nokia devices, but think there are several areas of the S60 Symbian-based operating system that need improvement. I am also quite a fan of Google Android, especially running on my T-Mobile G1. The Guardian is reporting the Nokia will be announcing an Android smartphone at Nokia World in September. The Guardian does not list any source for this rumor, other than industry insiders, so I am not taking this possibility as fact yet. However, I do think it would be interesting to see a Nokia ASeries (Android series) or Nokia Android Tablet class of devices with Nokia's outstanding hardware and Android's powerful and user friendly operating system.
Palm is where I started with mobile devices back in 1997 and they have had their ups and downs over the years with me serving as a fan and as a hater during different phases of the company. I read Jonathan Feldman's article on being an ex-Palm user and have to also wonder how much of the excitement around the Palm Pre is due to our desire to see a company like Palm succeed and stay competitive in today's mobile space. As I wrote up earlier, the Palm Pre is a good start with many great aspects, but it is a year or so behind the Apple iPhone and several months behind the Android platform. We all seem to remember the good things in our past and try to put the bad things behind us, but we shouldn't be too quick to forget all those rocky times we had with our old Palm devices either.
Kevin and Matt spent a few days at CTIA last week and we started out MobileTechRoundup show #168 chatting about our impressions of the event. It was our first CTIA, but there was a lot to see for both of us. Some photos of the CrunchPad Tablet were revealed just before the show so we talked a bit about this and whether or not a new Nokia Tablet was something that would be viable too. James is a serious eReader fan and brought up the news that Barnes & Noble may be coming out with their own Kindle competitor that may further explain their purchase of Fictionwise/eReader. Invites also went out for a T-Mobile press event on 21 April. Is this the T-Mobile G2 Android device?
I subscribe to a couple of actual magazines and was just reading through Laptop this past weekend and found a very helpful article that I though readers here may enjoy. I am a major 3rd party application fan on my mobile devices and enjoyed reading the Best Free Smartphone Apps article in the magazine. You can view an online version of the article that also includes some recommend priced applications for the iPhone, Windows Mobile, and BlackBerry platforms. I posted my own S60 best apps on Nokia Experts to complete the mobile platform roundup.
Microsoft announced Windows Mobile 6.5 today at Mobile World Congress in Spain and as a fan of the Windows Mobile OS, I have to say I am pretty disappointed with the update and the 9+ months we have to wait to actually see it on any device. I have seen a few demos of 6.5 in action and in my opinion it just adds the UI enhancements we saw on Standard (non-touch screen) devices with Windows Mobile 6.1 and makes it more finger friendly. There is also an improved web browser (Opera Mobile already gives us a superior browsing experience) and some services that will be supported on 6.5 devices. I am sure we will see some cool devices come out in late 2009, but honestly there is nothing I see here that compels me to start saving up to run out and buy a Windows Mobile device.
