Welcome to our newest Mobile Gadgeteer, Joel Evans

I kicked off this blog in May of 2006 and have been trying to keep writing here and on the Smartphones & Cell Phones blog regularly to keep you updated with the latest news and reviews, but it is tough with a full time job too. Thankfully, ZDNet was kind enough to let me bring in a co-author to this blog who will be offering a different perspective and more in-depth analysis of the mobile landscape and I couldn't be happier. I started writing online for in 2001 thanks to my friend Joel Evans giving me the chance to publish articles for his site. I am now pleased to have Joel joining me here on the ZDNet blog network and look forward to reading his articles and working with him on The Mobile Gadgeteer.
