10 Things I Can Do That iPhone Users Can't

I've been using my new AT&T 8525 for about 3 weeks now, and all this time I've been learning what I can do with my phone while getting used to the quirks of owning a PocketPC/Phone hybrid. I mentioned in a previous post that I was thinking about buying the iPhone, but decided to pass on Apple's Kool-Aid in favor of Microsoft's. So far, I'm glad I did, because (as of right now) I can do these 10 things that iPhone owners can only dream about, and I have to say, some of these things are pretty darn basic...

Is the World Ready for a Google Phone?

History is repeating itself in an odd way, but this time Apple isn't the one in the limelight. After a year of hype, Apple managed to make a moderately successful entrance into the mobile phone space; a market filled with cutthroat competition that's near impossible to casually enter. Now rumors are flying that another huge name in the web 2.0 world, Google, is about to do the same... maybe even bigger. What is the search engine turned juggernaut up to?

Why I Chose the AT&T 8525 over the iPhone

A few weeks ago, I eluded that I would be talking about my latest phone purchase; a topic that's fun since everyone has a cell phone these days. With so many different options out there in both smart and generic phone varieties, I found this purchase more difficult than any of my previous phones.

Things I didn't know I'd love about the iPhone

I'm that guy. The guy you saw and laughed at in the line growing outside the Apple or AT&T stores last Friday. I blew off work and wasted hours sitting on the sidewalk with other fans waiting for the next shiny thing to drop like an Apple from the Gadget Tree. But it was worth it and now I'm a proud new iPhone owner.

First 40 hours with my new iPhone

Angry Jones: Its 6:30, I've had my iPhone for more than 15 minutes now, why isn't the service activated? I did everything asked of me including dropping my previous carrier after being loyal for 5 years and switching my whole family over - is "the new AT&T" trying to screw me right out of the gate?

Verizon to offer Credit card service on Cell Phone

In this, almost famous, blog article I told you The Japanese have been using cell phones for a couple years now,that allow consumers to purchase any number of goods.

Well it looks like they have finally brought it to the US. Verizon Wireless says it will offer its customers a mobile payment service that lets them use their cell phone as a credit card.

It is not exactly a credit card, but more of a payment service where you use Obopay's mobile payment service to receive, send and spend money via their mobile phones.
