Smartphone Devices and Not So Smartphones - Part 3
The next “Smart” phone, the iPhone, or not so “Smart” phone. From my perspective is not so much a smart phone it’s much like the Windows 7 and Android Tablets in this sense to me mostly it’s capable of web surfing, social networking and watching videos has no slot for a micro SD card and you can’t pull out the battery. That’s a no go for me; no thanks Uncle Sam and SpyNet or I mean SkyNet.
Google is SkyNet since it sent the Android back in time to kill the iPhone and tracks everything as well. I’m a bit confused about the villains in this story. Wait are they just competing options of the same thing, fun to play with, good to track you with but not so smart? Yes they have a touch screen. They are expensive and do not have expandable storage. You have to use iTunes which I don’t appreciate.
Not having a keyboard detracts from serious writing and writers. When you only use twitter, texting and Facebook to communicate you don’t need a keyboard. Writers need keypads to be able to write more, faster and longer for very little writing the touch screen is good. You can sync a bluetooth keyboard with the iPhone and some Androids which can be an advantage. And they have a large array of Apps that far eclipse the Blackberry and Windows 7 phones.
Next up is the Android Tablet, I received a Coby Kyros for my birthday which I rooted and updated to OS 2.3 Gingerbread and it’s pretty nice for an eBook reader with some other fun stuff. As I said they are the same as iPhone/iPad for listening to music, viewing videos, reading an eBook, surfing the internet and being sociable at 160 characters or less.Continued on the next page
