I’ve been a writer in the mobile computing industry for the last 6 years, and I’ve never looked back. That is, I’ve never looked back until now. On this day of introspection, I’ve come to realize a few things about myself and the intelligence I keep daily in my pocket:
My i-mate Pocket PC Phone Edition has:
-Stereo sound I never use
-A color screen that drains my battery
-GPRS connectivity built-in that I have to pay for
-SDIO expansion is pointless if I don’t even use it
-Bluetooth connectivity that’s impossible to set up
-128 MB of memory to keep pictures of people on it that I don’t even like
-A built-in camera that gets people fired at work for industrial espionage
That being said, I’ve decided that a Palm Zire will be my next handheld. The i-mate Phone Edition Device I own is for people that have too much free time while they are out and about.
I plan to spend more time at the office getting things done. After all, there is better lighting here.
Who wants to be playing with GPRS, checking email, arranging meetings, and all this on the go? Work-a-holics, that’s all. Well, no longer for me.
Who needs Tasks? I’ll have ToDo List! It even sounds simpler! I’m putting an end to all my productivity on the road, and taking back control of my life. I’m buying a Palm Zire.
