Google Phone

October 30, 2007

According to the Wall Street Journal, Google is close to unveiling the plans for its much anticipated mobile phone. Apparently in the US, T-Mobile will be a likely network partner. What will make the phone different from other devices is not fully known at this point but it is likely safe to say the device will be great at mapping, searching and probably showing videos of the YouTube variety.   Speculation coupled with past comments from Google execs lead us in the direction of thinking the new phone will be open and have seamless access to Google services.   The article is interesting as it includes a quote from Microsoft which basically says mobile phones are already open and you can currently develop programs for them.   To some degree this is true but by the same token, Google has been quite an innovator in the arguably mature desktop software business.   Examples? Well there is Google maps and the whole mashup concept.

Verizon Wireless Settles on Deceptive Marketing

October 24, 2007

I have extremely favorable ratings regarding Verizon Wireless BroadbandAccess. The speed of the system has been great over the many years I have used it. Lately, whenever I am on the service, I feel uncomfortable. Why?

Skype Mobile Phone

October 23, 2007

Skype will soon have a mobile phone on the market and more exciting VoIP news there cannot be. I would imagine it will be a dual-mode device which auto-senses WiFi networks and sends calls on its service. Why would you want such a thing?   Well for one thing, audio quality will be better with this device over a WiFi network when calling other people on Skype.

More Bad Motorola News

October 19, 2007

You may recall Motorola was a partner with Apple in developing the ROCKR phone which was supposed to be the best of Apple and Motorola technology in one sleek device. The only problem was the device was not the best of anything and subsequently didn’t sell. Oh and by the way – it wasn’t even sleek.   The experience taught Steve Jobs that Apple needs to develop its own phone if it wants to do the job (no pun intended) right. This is how the iPhone came to be.   Now, the iPhone is about to overtake Motorola’s best-selling RAZR phone.   This is sad because if Motorola had played its cards right it might still be an Apple partner instead of getting annihilated by the Apple onslaught.
