Users of Android devices on the T-Mobile network will be able to have apps from the Marketplace charged to their phone bill. This is important.
Haven’t tried Airlock but it is the kind of simple presence setup I’ve long wanted. It runs on your Mac and detects when your iPhone/iTouch is nearby via BlueTooth. You can setup actions such as unlock, log into IM and other actions. I hope it can set IM presence. It works because I always take my mobile with me when I leave my office desk.
Mad idea. Attaching SLR lenses to the iPhone camera.
These *are* the Droids you are looking for. (List of Android phones.)
Precorder is video recording for your Palm Pre. Alpha software but it works.
Just unlocked and jailbreaked my old iPhone 3G with 3.1.2. using Blackra1n. Amazingly easy and straightforward bit of software that. Now have my O2 iPhone 3G working with a free Meteor SIM.
“Mobile devices in America are generating something like 600 billion geo-spatially tagged transactions per day.” Telcos complain about becoming data-pipes. Why aren’t they making gold out of this data?
The obvious problems are happening for Android developers as it gets more popular. Different devices with different hardware, screen sizes, firmware etc. I’m disappointed Android had no revolutionary ideas for device-independent development.
7 days of Palm Pre and the best thing I can say is that I haven’t once turned my old iPhone 3G on. I’ve used my fiance’s iPhone 3GS once in that time and thought it a good phone, on par with the Palm Pre. The only way I’ll be going back to an iPhone is if the next generation iPhone is a major advancement. The Palm Pre and iPhone are good phones, good mobile web browsers and good mobile application platforms. Each has a few frustrating problems and each has its strengths but neither is a clear leader.
The Palm Pre is not as good a one-handed-device as the iPhone. The top-left menu is a sad throwback to Windows apps., the sliding mechanism puts the top area of the screen out of one-handed reach and the physical keyboard works best with two hands in the classic Blackberry, hunch-back, thumb-typing position.
