This week, and as I recover form the Thanksgiving meals (and that cold that got worse over the weekend but getting better today), I am making a visit to the Cingular store nearby to put my hands on the latest devices including the BlackJack and 8525 and get the latest stories on the upcoming devices. Meanwhile, here are a few updates about the findings of the 81-day-experiment.
First, I am releasing a series of articles relating to the findings at the Web Worker Daily blog (http://webworkerdaily.com/) the first two articles have been posted, and there will be several more to be posted in the next few weeks. Here are the titles and the links of the articles that have been published:

Second, I will be announcing my next device (the device that I will be using as my own) next Tuesday Dec 5 at a lunch & learn webinar. You can still send your entries for the drawing (your guesses at which device I will be selecting) to firstname.lastname@example.org and you are welcome to attend the complimentary webinar by registering at:
Third, and the most interesting and exciting part of the 81-day-experiment, is the fact that I continue to have informative conversations with smartphone users about their experiences with their smartphones. You can see some of these conversations on you blog in the form of case studies and questions and answers. The goal is to include more of this valuable information as more devices are released and more issues and insights are reported..
Fourth, we will soon be publishing the findings in a book which is intended at helping users select the device that best fits their needs. So stay tuned for more information about the book in the upcoming weeks.
Meanwhile, happy “smartphoning”!
