Wi-Fi was the highlight of today. As I was crossing the street in San Francisco to meet a colleague of mine at this coffee shop, and as I turned on the Wi-Fi on the T-Mobile Dash, I saw a notification on the screen indicating that there were several wireless networks in range. I chose one from the list and there I was connected and in full speed.
In such a wireless network high-density area, you could almost get by without having a data plan (assuming your smpartphone can do wireless which is one of the strength of the T-Mobile Dash).
Smartphones are a must-have tool in the information age
As I waited for my colleague Deborah who was stuck in the Divisadero traffic, I got caught up on e-mail, sent a few messages of my own, and checked several Web resources and got their latest updates. Are you still having some doubt as to whether you need a smartphone? Have no doubt. If you live in today’s information age (which you do) and if you reply on e-mail to communicate with people (which you mostly likely do) and if you don’t want to get back to your desk and have a mountain of e-mail messages waiting for you (which you probably don’t), a smartphone is the answer.
The 81-day-experiment drawing
I got many e-mails today from readers who were waiting for me to choose my smartphone (the smartphone that I will be using after the 81-day-experiment is over). Even though I previously indicated that I would be selecting my smartphone today (on November 3), I would like to take a few days to summarize my findings and reflect back on the 81-day-experiment first.
As you may already know, we will be having a drawing for those who can guess which smartphone I will be selecting. The winner will get, guess what? a smartphone. If you still would like to participate, please send your entry to email@example.com
Tomorrow will be the last day of the T-Mobile Dash, so I will be summarizing my experience with the T-Mobile Dash.
