What is the next “feature craze” on mobile phones?

Friday, April 17, 2009 14:28 No Comments

Look at the cellphone/smartphone/mobile device you are carrying around with you. Take a second to think about every feature that it has and what it can do. We take many mundane, simple features for granted every day such as MMS, Bluetooth, and now even WiFi and 3G. Such features just a few short years ago were seen as “big ticket” items that many were willing to pay dearly for. With each new revolution or advancement in mobile technology comes with it the attention of the devout few followers, those who love their gadgets so much they would tell little Jimmy that he will have to buy his own bike because papa is getting a new Blackberry. Looking at your current phone, regardless of how new or old it is, as well as looking at what is in technology magazines and websites today as the up and coming mobile tech, what will be “the” next thing?

Can’t get any cellphone reception…thank god there’s a satellite to back you up.

Tuesday, April 14, 2009 13:40 No Comments

At the mere mentioning of the word “satellite phone” some of you may start to cringe and remember a failed attempt at what looked good on paper. Instead of having to deal with wireless towers sucking up physical space, why not just launch some more junk in to space to meet our wireless communication needs.

Sunday, February 15, 2009 20:10 No Comments
