No plans for Android consortium in Aus

Google has announced plans to form a consortium of US mobile carriers and handset manufacturers to deliver more timely updates to the Android mobile platform, but, for the time being, Aussie owners are set to miss out.

Do Windows users trust Microsoft to keep them safe? Seems the answer is "No!"

If last week's BlkSoD (Black Screen of Death) FUD-fest has taught us anything, it's that there are a lot of Windows users out there who view both Microsoft and the whole Patch Tuesday/Automatic Update mechanism with a great deal of suspicion. It seems that when PCs go wrong, people are quick to point the finger of blame at Microsoft and any updates sent their way down the Automatic Update pipes.

Holiday Gift Guide 2009: Smartphones

The lineup of cell phones has expanded a bit, but a significant number of what we see in that category are updates to existing models. The real innovation in the mobile phone world is in the area of smartphones where we see the Apple iPhone, Palm WebOS, Google Android, RIM BlackBerry, and Microsoft Windows Mobile devices taking us to places we have never been before. This holiday season there is a huge selection for you to choose from on every carrier and several exciting devices will be launching throughout November. There are so many to choose from that we can't cover them all here so I will present you with one smartphone from each carrier and one SIM-unlocked one.

Is the Google Android platform the upcoming smartphone of choice?

My T-Mobile SIM is setup for my T-Mobile G1 Google Android device that I have owned since day 1 (see my full review) and continue to enjoy with the updates and growing Android Market application selection. T-Mobile was the first US wireless carrier to support Android and then rolled out the T-Mobile myTouch 3G to add a second Android and become the carrier of choice for Android fans. T-Mobile will be launching a third Android device, the Motorola CLIQ, very soon, but they are no longer the exclusive Android carrier. Sprint has the awesome HTC Hero with the Samsung Moment coming soon and Verizon will have a couple of devices in 2010. AT&T has nothing announced yet, but there are rumors of a Dell handset. When you decide you want an iPhone, you only have one choice in carrier and form factor, but when you now consider an Android device you can stay with your carrier and/or have a choice in form factor. Let's take a closer look at what Android devices are or will be coming to each carrier in the US, followed by my thoughts on what I have found to be the best so far.

Windows Mobile 6.5 disappoints; no Start customizations and stylus still required

Microsoft officially launched Windows Mobile 6.5 this morning and with all the leaks and AT&T releases the information has been out for over a day already. I've had the chance to use both an AT&T HTC Pure and Pharos Traveler 137 running Windows Mobile 6.5 and I have to say Microsoft disappoints me greatly with this release. We have seen more leaked than what was released today so maybe there will be some upcoming updates, but I am disappointed by the lipstick Microsoft gives to us with WM 6.5. The thing is, the beauty isn't even skin deep on this release and I think using Spb Mobile Shell 3.5 gives me a better experience on the Touch Pro2 than Windows Mobile 6.5 ever could.

HTC Leo hands-on photos reveal 3.8 inch capacitive with 1 GHz Snapdragon processor

The HTC Touch HD was never released here in the US, but I did see the European one once and it was a slick device with lots of appeal. We have seen updates to the Touch Pro and Diamond lines and rumors of a successor to this Touch HD as well. It appears that the successor is no longer really a rumor as you can see a ton of photos of the device and screenshots over on the ai.rs blog site. This new large touchscreen device looks sweet and should appeal to those that can live without a hardware QWERTY keyboard.

Has Apple quelled smartphone buyer expectations for finished products?

I have been spending a lot of time with my T-Mobile Touch Pro2 over these last few weeks and it has made me pause and think a bit more about firmware updates and how they relate to mobile phones. In the late 90s and early 2000s we never really thought much about upgrading our devices and we purchased them knowing exactly what their functionality and capabilities were while paying hundreds of dollars. If you look at the feature phone market, buyers still appear to think this way when they purchase the latest messaging, touchscreen, or camera-focused mobile phone. With the launch of the iPhone it seems people have started making purchasing decisions on whether or not a phone could be upgraded and have features added later in the lifecycle. This mentality has resulted in kudos for the iPhone, WebOS, some BlackBerry, select few Windows Mobile, and many Android devices while slamming Symbian, T-Mobile branded Android (who may not get future updates), Windows Mobile (selected devices may be upgraded), and BlackBerry devices. It seems to me that modern smartphone makers may have suckered us into thinking that upgradeability is always a good thing.
