Will users reject native 4G for Wi-Fi?

Long-term evolution (LTE) may be the technology that brings faster mobile broadband speeds, but research shows that users are rejecting native 3G connectivity for Wi-Fi, and, if history repeats itself, the same could occur for native 4G support in tablets.

What to do in Hawaii? Get up early and stand in line for a Palm Pre

If you listened to the last couple of MobileTechRoundup podcasts you heard me say I was not planning on picking up a Palm Pre. However, a few things occurred that made me rethink my strategy regarding the Pre. With the small number of available review units available (and no timeline of when I may actually get one to check out), my mobile device history that began with the use of Palm devices back in 1997 with the Pilot 1000 and fact that I still have a special place in my heart for Palm, and the fateful timeliness of having a business trip complete the day before the Pre launch I just could not hold back. I was out in Hawaii crawling around a ship for the last week and was scheduled to fly home on Saturday at noon. With no family or other obligations on Saturday morning, what else was a mobile enthusiast to do other than get to the largest Sprint store in Honolulu and get in line early.

Update: RIM has nearly twice the Apple share, gap should continue to grow

I've been doing a lot of thinking lately about the US smartphone market and in particular RIM (I may go buy a T-Mobile Curve 8900 soon) so it was quite timely when I read the excellent article from Michael Mace titled Watch out for RIM. I wanted to offer some of my thoughts concerning the US smartphone market and why RIM is the current leader and the one I think has the potential to move faster than Apple and others moving forward. The latest Gartner worldwide numbers show that RIM is number two, behind Nokia, with almost double the market share of Apple. I haven't seen any US specific numbers, but with the long history of BlackBerry devices here in the US I imagine their market share percentage in the US may be even great than double that of Apple.

Dilbert explains why we love our mobile phones

Readers here know that I have used tons of mobile phones over my history in the mobile space. I can always be found with at least one smartphone with me and am still ROTFL after reading the Dilbert comic that popped up in my RSS feeds this morning.

Opera Mini 4.2 for Android brings microSD support and video viewing capability

As I pointed out in a recent post regarding the current firmware on the T-Mobile G1 Google Android device there is a major issue with not being able to store applications or content onto the external microSD card. I get low memory errors daily and if I browse a lot with the device my browser cache fills up to 10MB+. Then when I delete the data I lose all my history, bookmarks, etc. and this really limits my usage of the G1. Opera thankfully announced today that its Opera Mini 4.2 product for the Android platform is out of beta already and available as a full release in the Android Market.

Use those old Palm OS apps on your Symbian device with StyleTap

My mobile device history dates back to 1997 with my US Robotics Pilot 1000 and I still have a few Palm OS applications that I enjoy using. If you have Palm OS applications that you still need to run and now have moved onto S60, UIQ, or Windows Mobile you can use StyleTap and still use most Palm applications. The Symbian (S60 and UIQ) version has been in closed beta for some time and according to the Symbian Guru the S60 version was just made available for trial and purchase (US$49.95).
