I gots me some smartphones to play with...
One of Guam's premiere telecomm companies, GuamCell Communications, was nice enough to let me borrow two brand-freakin'-new smartphones, the first to be released for public sale on Guam. I got my hands on the Audiovox Thera PocketPC with the latest version of Windows CE and the Treo 600 with the latest PalmOS.
I'm supposed to test/evaluate/criticize/compare/contrast the units and their relationship with Guam's new wireless data services for the TV segment on technology I host every Tuesday, “Tech Talk with Jason Salas.“ It's basically me being goofy and playing with different toys, and trying to explain complex concepts in plain English.
I admittedly haven't played with the PalmOS since the grayscale days of my old Palm III, and since joining the Church of Gates, I've naturally been playing with and developing for Windows operating systems.
I'm lucky to have friends in the know...my good friend Jamil Justice is my company's creative director, and as an artist, is (surprise, surprise) a Mac guy. And as such, he's more inclined to the Palm stuff, so we're going to do a tag team report next week.
In the meantime, it's hella fun playing with this stuff. I'm already building some administrative services to run over the phones, since they can both tap the actual World Wide Web, not a WAP offshoot. And I've been working with GuamCell on developing a business plan for hosted LAN services, wherein they provide a private gateway to a library of apps we write and host for our network ff of our web server.
If I can ever stop playing MP3s on the Audiovox unit, maybe I'll get around to working on the story...
