A review of the wpToGo app for the G1 phone!

This is just a quick post to review a great application (in my opinion) to blog from.

The phone is none other than the true iPhone killer, the T-Mobile G1 powered by Google’s Android (do you recall when I mentioned that we may get a free Google OS by 2010? Well, it’s getting closer!).

This app has all the basic options that any WordPress blogger may need, whether you host your own wordpress or you have a wordpress.com however, it,s only the basic options you will get, for example, you can add tags, categories, links from within your post, bold or italic for formatting and also included is to upload pictures.
It does need a lot more options, for example, a spll chck! Or at least more formatting options. But for now, it’s a great tool to have on hand.

Ofcourse I have just used it to write this post, now I’ve got some emails to take care of.

P.S. for iPhone owners, you can get the app made by wordpress from iphone.wordpress.org

iPhone Nano is coming in 2009!


It’s been a while since we talked about gadgets in here, but that’s for a reason (A good reason), and no I have not give in to Apple just yet 😉
But since it is the first day in the new year and since there is a lot of talk going on around what will the next iPhone look like, and I know that’s a lot of you guys are Apple fans, well, it looks like it will be a 3/4 of the size of the current iPhone and will be called (You guessed it!) the iPhone Nano.
But wait, Steve Jobs will not be at the Macworld keynote this month, so I would think that this little gadget will not be rolling out until later this year. I mean, it is important enough for him to be announcing it, yet again he’s not speaking, so it’s only logical for me to say it will come out later this year.
The next question would be:
Will there be an iPhone Shuffle?!
What do you think?

Happy New Year everyone 🙂

Did you hear about the iPhone girl?!

Well, I did!
A long article linked from Yahoo! (homepage) about a huge buzz going on regarding a new iPhone shipped to a British client with a picture of a girl working in a Honk Kong factory…. Blah blah blah.
Get it? It’s another stunt from Apple, a marketing stunt that is. Creating more and more of the hyped iPhone 3G buzz. Very smart, still I will never change my mind about Apple, now that people finally getting the picture that it’s all just good marketing. I mean great marketing, specially after all the mistakes going on with the 3G and the security hacks it’s been getting.
Apple, I rest my case 😉

HTC attack on the 3G iPhone

As many of you may already know, I am anti-Apple! Therefore, I DO NOT like the iPhone, nor do I like its little successor the iPhone 3G. What amazes me is that all my friends are trying to defend it!

The Pocket PC has been around forever, though it never had the hype that came with the overmarketed iPhone — the only reason so many know so little about what it can do.

But don’t get me wrong — I’m no Microsoft fan, either. Whether it’s Windows or Linux — my own new computer is Ubuntu powered and I am very happy with it so far — I just don’t like being controlled and limited by the lack of options that any Apple product offers. I will explain more about Macs and iPods in a future post.

The main reason I dislike iPhones is the presence of little to no flexibility for third-party applications. Yes, there’s the App Store — but why pay for an app on the iPhone 3G that you can get gratis for Windows Mobile?

Yes I admit that most pocket PC’s used to be big and bulky and they used to be limited to their processors speed, but that’s all history now.
I’ve reviewed a couple of Windows Mobile-based phones, but no gadget from any manufacturer got a dropped-jaw reaction until today, and the device that did it was not Cupertino’s baby but the Touch Diamond from HTC.

HTC has launched its answer to Apple’s smartphone juggernaut; that answer is the?HTC Touch Diamond.

Though similar in form and function, HTC’s offering is far superior in many respects. First, HTC brought an innovated interface dubbed TouchFLO 3D to the device, bringing the contents and functions of your phone close to hand with convenience and style. But they didn’t stop at a better interface. They pushed the envelope further with features like intelligent ringer selection: Place the Diamond face-down on a flat surface and your phone will “go to sleep.” For more of the Diamond’s groundbreaking
features and functions, go here.

Will the HTC Touch Diamond be a major contender for the iPhone 3G’s title this summer? The world will decide, and we’ll be here watching; the Diamond dropped in Europe in June with release in the rest of the world coming later this year. (Or take a look at Amazon for unlocked devices.)

Here is the product description from Amazon:

The HTC touch Diamond rivals the iPhone yet again. HTC’s new flagship
phone has virtually every feature available! The huge 2.8 Inch
touchscreen LCD has an impressive 480 x 640 resolution, perfect for
showing off the vivid pictures you can take with the built in 3.15MP
camera. The all new TouchFLO 3D finger swipe navigation is the most
elegant interface we’ve ever seen on a Windows device to date. The 4GB
internal hard drive gives you plenty of room to store movies, pictures,
music and Windows Mobile 6.1 programs, and the 528 Mhz processor will
burn through any task you throw at it. But that’s not all the Diamond
manages to offer! A-GPS is built in so you’ll never get lost on the
road. Need to get connected? The Diamond has WiFi 802.11b/g, Bluetooth
2.0 with A2DP, HSDPA 7.2Mbps (EU and AS only) and EDGE. The list goes
on and on for this amazing HTC phone, and it’s even thinner than the
iPhone!
