Default "My Smartphone Epiphany" - Brighthand

"For the past three years, I've been a two-piece guy. That is, I've been using two devices, a data-enabled cell phone coupled with a PDA, to get my email and maintain my calendar. But that all changed about a month ago when I decided to try out the Motorola MPx200 Smartphone running Windows Mobile. The Motorola MPx200 Smartphone has convinced me that a convergent device, one that is more cell phone than PDA, can keep me connected and informed.

Let's begin with the physical advantages of a one piece solution. Obviously, going with a single device sheds a lot of bulk. For a while I used a Bluetooth-enabled Sony Ericsson T68i cell phone coupled with my latest PDA to get my email. While that's an excellent solution, I can't imagine myself going back to it. Life is so much simpler, and lighter, with one device."

It's always nice to see new people realizing how wonderful the Smartphone platform is, although this article focuses more on the fact that carrying one device is easier than carrying two rather than the value of the platform itself or what it can do. However, I remember enjoying the same type of thrill when I grabbed my coat and only had one device in it. I'm sure the author will discover the other beauties of the Smartphone platform as time goes on.
