MobileTechRoundup show #109, Palm, unlocked devices and T-Mobile 3G

James starts off MobileTechRoundup show #109 by highlighting why a hosted Exchange service can be valuable to mobile enthusiasts and those with multiple devices. Kevin, James, and I then talk a bit about Palm, both the Foleo and the Engadget open letter. The new Nokia N95s revealed by the FCC have us excited and we chat a bit about buying unlocked devices versus carrier subsidized ones. T-Mobile may finally be rolling out 3G soon and Verizon is going to enable GPS in their device before the end of the year. We couldn't go a whole show without mentioning the iPhone and our freeware of the show is a way to do some basic hacking that is user friendly.
