Work in Progress

wip I haven’t been writing much lately because everything I want to write about is still incomplete a work in progress. So let me tell you about some of this work in progress.

iPhone 4Me told you about my purchase of an iPhone 3G. I’m still learning this new device. My initial focus is dealing with its limited battery life, since, let’s face it, battery power is kind of important to be able to use a device, since you can’t always be tethered to a wall outlet or computer USB port. A spare battery isn’t an option since the iPhone’s battery is !@#$%^&* (censored) not removable. Kawasaki’s excellent blog post The Art of iPhone Battery Life has helped me substantially improve the standby time of the battery. However, sometimes my iPhone is not in standby mode (because I’m actually using it), so I’m currently researching external battery options. When I feel I know enough and have enough to write about, the iPhone 3G will be the subject of another post.

In the poorly named (in retrospect) No iPhone For Me, I discussed several exciting Windows Mobile devices which are about to become available in the USA; HTC Touch Diamond, HTC Touch Pro, Sony Ericsson Xperia X1 and Samsung Omnia. I’m wading through a lot of information to attempt to evaluate which is the “best” device. Then there’s the HTC Dream, the world’s first Android handset.

BlackBerry Bold and Thunder Update discussed the continuing saga on two upcoming Berries, the Bold and the Thunder. I’m hopefully about to receive my Bold, and there is new news on the Thunder.

Do the MIDs have an advantage over the Advantage? told you about the MID, or Mobile Internet Device. Several MIDs were featured at the Intel Developer Forum (IDF) that just took place from August 19-21, 2008 in San Francisco. More MIDs are being introduced in the aftermath of the IDF. I’m still trying to synthesize all this information before I post.

There’s more, but that’s enough for now. Unless of course, you intrepid readers want me to write about something. If so, please post a comment.
