Gallery: Droid vs. iPhone

A brief gallery of the Droid from Motorola and Verizon Wireless. First by itself, then next to my beat-up iPhone 3GS. The Droid is definitely boxier and bulkier, but hey, you've got to put all those features (like its physical keyboard) somewhere.

MobileTechRoundup show #182, Moto CLIQ, ZuneHD, iPod nano, HP Envy

We missed recording last week due to the Mobilize 2009 event so MobileTechRoundup show #182 is a bit longer than normal as James, Kevin, and I chatted about mobile tech products. James and Kevin had a chance to play with the upcoming T-Mobile Motorola CLIQ Google Android device that will be tough for me to resist. I talked about my new Zune HD and iPod nano and then I learned about Opera 10's Turbo Mode on a PC. Opera Mini 5 beta is out for Java-enabled phones and adds some great new features, all for FREE. James also had a chance to swing by the HP offices and play with the new Envy notebooks that have features you may envy, but at a price you may not.

Review: Samsung Behold and Motorola MOTOZINE ZN5 on T-Mobile

This year we created the ZDNet Holiday Guide and while putting together the best feature phone guide I was particularly intrigued by the Motorola MOTOZINE ZN5 and Samsung Behold from T-Mobile. My contacts at T-Mobile promptly sent them both to me for a couple of weeks and I have had trouble putting one of them back in the box. The lines between features phones and smartphones are definitely getting blurred with phones like these becoming available at some great prices. Read about my thoughts and experiences with both of these devices below and check out my image gallery that has product photos for each device.

Great tips for using your cellphone as a smartphone

The lines of features, functionality, and price are blurring between cellphones and smartphones, but there are still many cellphones (check out my free phones and feature phones Holiday Guides) that are very good at serving as a phone that the majority of the people are looking for. Jeremy Toeman put together a good article that list how you can use even your current feature phone as a smartphone for many tasks that I think meet the mass market needs. I am reviewing the Motorola ZN5 and T-Mobile Behold and have to say there is some appeal to a standard cellphone.

Motorola MC75

Enterprises looking to deploy a rugged, versatile mobile device will be impressed by the Motorola MC75's range of features. However, you pay a premium for smartphone functionality in a hardened form; this phone is not only tough, it is massive to the point of being unwieldy.

Motorola Q eats batteries alive

When I first unboxed the Motorola Q, I knew I was in for disappointment when I saw how small its brick-of-a-battery was and what I'd be expecting the Q to do. To put it bluntly, to own a Q, which should involve taking advantage of some of its most prominent features, Verizon Wireless' prices of $199 (requires a two-year and online purchase to get the $100 discount from $299) or $349 for the one-year contract version (no discount available) are misleading and here's why.

Rupert Goodwins' Diary

Tuesday 11/7/2006 Motorola Semiconductors — oops, sorry, Freescale — has announced a new magnetic memory chip. This is actually quite exciting; magnetic memory has some chance of becoming the much-awaited universal memory technology, which combines the best features of flash, dynamic and static memory designs to work fast, keep its contents when the power goes off and be easy to design into circuits.
