The tight integration with your iPhone packs a powerful productivity punch, bringing the best of mobile to your desktop and notebook. It does, however, leave one question in mind. Who needs an iPad now?
Ordering a pizza in the box with the dots using an iPhone app might sound simple, but it required deep integration into Domino's e-store system, according to director of Speedwell eBusiness Solutions Brett Wiskar.
While the yet-to-be released next-generation iPhone will almost certainly be an industry-leading device, I decided that what I really needed was 4G speed, Google's proven cloud integration and extended battery life when it was time to upgrade.
Though it has yet to hit the U.S., Spotify continues to make waves in Europe, continuing today with the announcement that it will offer playlist synching with Apple's iPod and iPhone.

Seesmic is an excellent Twitter application for your desktop and Android device that is now available for your iPhone/iPod touch. Multiple service integration is supported, including a cool Evernote functionality.
Facebook is an extremely popular social networking site that continues to increase in popularity. I personally can hardly stand the web version of Facebook and prefer to use a more efficient mobile version on my smartphones. With the new official Facebook client for Android just being released I decided to create a post that discusses the official Facebook clients (there are 3rd party alternatives in some cases) running on the iPhone, Windows Mobile, Symbian, Android, Sidekick, and BlackBerry platforms. While there is some slick Facebook integration on the Palm Pre and WebOS, there is not yet any official Facebook client. As you will see in the following comparison, there is one client that is clearly the leader with most all of the others at about the same level of functionality.
This is the chinese chess with 9 levels defined. It is exactly the same with the facebook flash version, but this is for iphone.The...
One of the primary functions I perform on my smartphones is listening to podcasts, which I actually listen to much more than music. Nokia has an excellent Nokia Podcasting application that lets you subscribe and download podcasts with and the iPhone has iTunes integration so syncing podcasts over is fairly simple. There are a couple of 3rd party apps for Android, but I was very pleased to see Google launch their own podcatcher called Listen. Listen lets you search, subscribe, download, and stream podcasts to your Android-based device.
Google is pretty well integrated into the iPhone, but one area where the Android OS has stood above this integration is with push Gmail. That has changed today with the launch of GPush (iTunes link), a Gmail push application for the iPhone available now for 99 cents. You can setup how you wish to be notified of your incoming Gmail, including through vibration, ringing or GPush icon display of unread messages. You will also receive a preview of incoming email with the sender's name and subject heading.
I was asked to consider what pieces of consumer technology had become so central to my life that I would never give them up. That is, you'd have to pry my cold, dead fingers off of them.
A "Perfect Storm": The Linux-based Android OS, and tight integration with Google's web services, running on BlackBerry hardware and connected to RIM's corporate messaging/calendar syncing infrastructure would be an unstoppable mobile enterprise device platform that not even Apple's iPhone, Windows Mobile or Palm webOS could dare to challenge. But could the marriage ever be consummated?
I think Twitter is so useful because it has many ways of updating: text message, desktop apps, web interface. Starting today, you can update your Facebook status via Seesmic's desktop AIR app.
I have been using Spb Software's excellent applications on my Windows Mobile devices for years and was very pleased to see them branching out to support other mobile operating systems, including S60 and the iPhone. I posted a review of Spb Wallet for S60 devices and now that the iPhone version made an appearance on the iPhone App Store I can share my thoughts with you on this excellent application. With the large display and Safari integration, Spb Wallet is a real winner in my book. You can check out the full press release posted yesterday and my image gallery and video of the application in action.
The key to making Windows Mobile a fiercer rival to the iPhone etc is, according to a New York Times interview with WinMob marketing bod Todd Peters, to put the operating system onto fewer handsets:"I'd rather have fewer devices and be more focused," he said. That way "we get better integration" between phone and operating system.
A couple of functions I enjoy on my Apple iPhone is interacting with my friends on social networks and via instant messaging. I have been using several different applications for these interactions and with the inability of the iPhone to multi-task using 3rd party applications this is not a great experience. Over the past week, I have been using the new Pinger Phone application that brings in my Twitter, Facebook, and MySpace social network friends and Yahoo!, AIM, Windows Live, and Google Talk IM contacts for a full and complete solution in a single package. There is also a server back end so that text messages can be used to notify you of new IM replies when Pinger Phone is not running.
At the AlwaysOn Summit at Stanford University, tech execs discuss the iPhone and whether they plan to use the device across their companies
With the recent announcement of iPhone corporate data plans more people in enterprise may be thinking about how to support the iPhone as a business tool. Steven sent me a press release announcing that HyperOffice is now iPhone ready and will allow you to connect your iPhone to corporate email, contacts, calendars, tasks, and notes.
I gave the iPhone an honest try and as I stated in a post late last week I returned my iPhone prior to the 14-day trial period. I found that the iPhone lacked features found in many of today's feature and high-end smartphones and thought I could just leave it all behind me and move on. However, the iPhone drew me back in hour-by-hour over the weekend and I just could no longer resist it so I just picked up a new iPhone at the Apple store a couple hours ago. Over the weekend I tried using a Nokia N95 tethered with a N800 and both are excellent devices in their own way and I actually found some new applications for the N95 that made me like it even more. However, the Apple iPhone is slick and so refreshing after using other Palm, embedded Linux, Windows Mobile, and Symbian devices over the last 10 years that I was pulled back to it. At this time, the iPhone isn't necessarily about features, but about smooth integration and a new user experience that appeals even to power users like me.
Apple touts the forthcoming iPhone as a 'breakthrough' Internet communications device. Maybe so when it comes to browsing, email, and SMS, but the iPhone appears primarily to concern itself with consumption, not production. Apple further appears to be passing on the opportunity to tightly integrate and leverage Google's innovations in email, blogging, and document management.
You no doubt already heard about the iPhone -- we witnessed something incredible at the MacWorld keynote in San Francisco today. It's true that other phones already have roughly the same functionality, but this is the first device to perfect the entire user experience.
