Will the LG Optimus 7 be your next smartphone?

on Wednesday, December 1st, 2010
Posted in: News, Windows Mobile

Windows 7 Phone (formerly WIndows Mobile) devices haven’t been on my radar for over a year or two. It seemed like Microsoft was allowing their mobile operating system to go down the same path the Palm – into obscurity. But now they are offering an updated OS and a variety of handsets that could put them back on the map. One such device is the LG Optimus 7 from LG Electronics. More info on this phone after the jump.

While all of us who are locked in to WinMo by our employers choose WinMo Devices over the next iPhone, the G2, or the upcoming Pre, wait for the messianic arrival of WinMo 6.5 while hanging out in limbo, news and new software can be a little slow coming. Here’s something you may have missed.

Palm Treo Pro Smartphone Review

on Friday, October 24th, 2008

I’ve been a big fan of Palm Treo smartphones for
quite awhile. Since I purchased my very first smartphone (Treo
), I’ve been using one as my main phone on and off
for over three years now. During most of that time, I’ve been a Palm OS user,

watched the slow evolution of Treo hardware and even slower evolution of
software – at least on the Palm OS side, throughout the past several years. That’s why I tend
to be an on again, off again Treo user. I get bored with either the hardware or
the software and get the itch to try something new for awhile. I really liked the
Treo 800w
and was looking forward to an unlocked GSM version of that model. But instead of doing
that, Palm decided to release the Palm Treo Pro. Let’s check it out…
