Stay True To Microsoft Mobile

A couple of months ago my wife wanted a new phone. Regardless as to what her friends said about the IPhone I had a hard time as a Microsoft MVP justifying the purchase. I wanted to find her a phone which ran the latest Windows Mobile, still could do what she needed which really is not too much but at the same time make her feel good about having a high tech phone. We decided to go with AT&T's Tilt. I checked it out, took off the AT&T Navigator and put on Microsoft's Live Search. She was impressed as was I because I had never seen it work with the GPS.

Well this month it was my turn! I too needed a new phone and was not sure what to get, however I did know that while my other Microsoft MVP buddies were running around with Iphones to there favorite coffee shops, I was going to be different, however I wanted the same features such as touch scrolling, etc...Then I saw it.. AT&T's Fuze! After a couple of minutes I was in love. It had the same features I wanted and then some. As a developer, I can also write cool MS apps to test on the device. Recently I have seen mobile sessions at PASS and Jeff Barnes, who show very quickly how to write powerful GPS applications. If you also are in the market for a new phone, check out the HTC phones. Sprint calls it the Diamond and AT&T the Fuse. There are two models, one is the Pro. It comes with a memory expansion and slide out keyboard, and even with my stubby fingers I can still type on it... Smooth Celling!
