Matthew Miller started using mobile devices in 1997 and has been writing news, reviews, and opinion pieces ever since. He is a co-host, with ZDNet's Kevin Tofel, of the MobileTechRoundup podcast and an author of three Wiley Companion series books. Matthew started using mobile devices with a US Robotics Pilot 1000 and has owned more than 200 different devices running Palm, Linux, Symbian, Newton, BlackBerry, iOS, Android, webOS, Windows Mobile, and Windows Phone operating systems. His current collection includes a Nokia Lumia 830, Apple iPhone 6 Plus, BlackBerry Passport, Sony Xperia Z3, Microsoft Surface Pro 3, and many more, along with tons of accessories and classic devices like the Apple Newton MessagePad 2100 and Sony CLIE UX50. Matthew can be found on various discussion forums under the user name of "palmsolo".

Matthew is a professional naval architect by day and a mobile gadgeteer at all other times. He purchases his own devices and then sells them on eBay or Swappa to buy more. Many other devices are sent for review on a 30-day loaner basis and then returned to the carrier or manufacturer. If any are provided as “long term loaner units” this will be clearly disclosed in his reviews.

The Amazon Kindle comes with decent black leather case, but it doesn't do a very good job of holding the device securely in place when the front flap is opened. There is also no backlighting on the Kindle so you need good lighting to read with the device. M-Edge has two solutions that integrate with each other to address both of these issues and I was pleased to finally find such an elegant solution.

The HTC Pure from AT&T is the first Windows Mobile 6.5 device launched on a US wireless carrier. This is an AT&T branded HTC Touch Diamond2 loaded up with plenty of AT&T bloatware in a sleek form factor at a nice price of $150 after rebate and contract. The device performed quite well with lots of apps running and may be what some people are looking for in a touch screen device.
