I have a rather small personal music collection and rely on streaming music applications on my devices to enjoy the latest tunes. I started out using Pandora most of the time, then moved onto Last.fm, but have now found a new client that I actually enjoy more. Slacker Personal Radio is a very cool service that has (or will soon have) functionality on iPhone/iPod touch, BlackBerry and Android devices not seen in other streaming clients and that is offline caching ability so you can load up music onto your storage card and enjoy music when you do not have a wireless connection (such as when on an airplane). I also find that Slacker offers me a very nice selection of music without repeating songs as often as I see on Pandora, primarily due to their catalog that is nearly four times what others have.
With the current enthusiasm for 'real time web' in some circles, where some chose to notify the world of their every move - from geo location to their lunch choice to music currently being listened to - applications like the 'Type n Walk' iPhone application demoed above are godsend.

The one device that I have not yet had a chance to see in person was the Palm Pre and all of that changed at the Mobile Focus event last night. Kevin Tofel and I were able to corner Matt Crowley, Palm product line manager for the Palm Pre, and he ran through some things on the Pre for us. I asked particularly about 3rd party applications because I haven't yet seen any in action. He showed us Fandango, NASCAR, and Amazon Music on the camera and then we also heard more about Pandora. Check out the video below to see these apps in action and then a walk through some of the other main features of the Palm Pre.
I pop my T-Mobile SIM card into my T-Mobile G1 about once a week to see if there is anything interesting going on in the Android Market and I have to say there is not much that really excites me after almost 6 months of using the device. One of the reasons I purchased my G1 was because of the speculation and hype that the "open" nature of the Android OS would have developers churning out applications and taking the device to the next level. There were some excellent free applications available at or soon after launch, such as ShopSavvy, imeem Music, Bonsai Blast, PacMan, and The Weather Channel with the hope that priced applications would bring even more goodness to the platform. I personally have a few reasons that I have been hesitant to purchase applications from the Android Market and am curious if other G1 owners feel the same.
