Windows Mobile 7, Microsoft's Attempt to Leapfrog iPhone 4 -- The Competition

Rumors about Windows Mobile 7, or Seven as our sibling site WMExperts is calling it, are near-iTablet level over on that side of the smartphone space. If you read my Windows Phone (based on 6.5) review, you know I had only questions and no answers for Microsoft when it came to what they could do to become competitive in the increasingly important consumer space.

Quick Review: eBuddy Pro for iPhone

26

Quick Review: eBuddy Pro for iPhone

If you have been searching for a fresh instant messaging client, we have good news for you -- eBuddy Pro [iTunes Link - $4.99] is quite a solid performer. For the price, you get a very respectable instant messaging client with a ton of great features that rivals those of higher priced apps.

  • Push notifications
  • All your friends in one buddy list
  • Receive message alerts & typing notifications
  • Send pictures to friends
  • No ads
  • Receive message alerts & typing notifications
  • Supports chat for AIM, GTalk, Facebook, MySpace, Yahoo, MSN and ICQ

I personally have been using this application for about a week now and can honestly say I enjoy using it more than the bigger name IM apps but this does not mean there is no room for improvement. The start up time is just too darn slow but we've been assured by the developer this is being worked on for a future update. If you want to give eBuddy a try for before you buy, take the free version [iTunes Link] for a spin. Just keep in mind you will be without some of the great features present in the Pro version.

iPhone Hands-on from a Nokia Expert's Perspective -- Smartphone Round Robin

We're in the final "away" week of the 2009 Smartphone Round Robin, and since I began the event looking at Nokia, what better way to cap it off than with NokiaExperts' Matt Miller looking at our iPhone 3GS.

iTablet to Have Gaming, be US-Only on Launch? Playing "Come see our latest creation" Guest List Detective!

iTablet to Have Gaming, be US-Only on Launch? Playing "Come see our latest creation" Guest List Detective!

Going all Mentalist on Apple's Jan. 27 "Come see our latest creation" invitee list has led to conjecture that gaming will be shown off for the iTablet/iSlate, but that perhaps the hardware itself will be US-only at launch.

iPhone Review from CrackBerry Kevin -- Smartphone Round Robin

Apple's third iPhone meets CrackBerry Kevin's third iPhone review, exclusively in the 2009 Smartphone Round Robin. Year one he called it the iSmudge. Then they got the Storm. Year two he called it the Ah *** phone. Then they got the Storm. (Joking. Not.) What's he calling the iPhone and iPhone users this year?

Fox News: iTablet, iPhone 4.0, iLife 2010 Focus of Apple Jan 27 "Come see our latest creation" Event

Fox News: iTablet, iPhone 4.0, iLife 2010 Focus of Apple Jan 27 "Come see our latest creation" Event

Fox News, which originally predicted a media-focused Jan. 26 event, is back to say Apple's now-Jan. 27 "Come see our latest creation" will focus on the iTablet, iPhone 4.0 operating system (no hardware), and iLife 2010.

iTablet/iSlate/iWhatever makes the kind of sense that does. The hype is so loud you can hear it in space. What it is remains a mystery, but if Apple wasn't going to show it off, we'd expect a leak or PR blurb hinting they weren't to shape expectations.

Slacker Personal Radio for iPhone Now Available in Canada

Slacker Personal Radio for iPhone Now Available in Canada

Slacker Personal Radio [Free - iTunes link] is now available in the Canadian App Store. While our friend's at CrackBerry.com got to enjoy the news a little sooner, thanks to Apple's currently speedier App approval process and iLounge's spot, TiPb didn't have to wait as long as we feared either.

As far as we know, this is the first streaming internet radio service available to Canadian iPhone users (blame our nightmarish licensing) and it includes some nice local content:

  • Canadian Rock
  • Canadian Country
  • Canadian Today's Hits

Slacker also tells TiPb that the 2.0 version is coming soon, and will provide station caching for iPhone and iPod touch. Can't. Wait.

Note: While the app is free for the first 30 days, a $5/month Slacker Plus subscription turns off the ads, turns on unlimited skips, and otherwise makes the service much more enjoyable and functional thereafter. More Plus features, after the break...

One small step for the internet, one giant leap for Canadian music.
