Productivity guru and technologist Eric Mack is rethinking his mobile computing needs and has opened up a discussion of whether he should drop the Palm platform and consider a Windows Mobile smartphone. Help Eric out by adding a comment to his post with your thoughts on the subject, he needs some sage advice. He’s listed his needs in a smartphone:
- Hardware options from several vendors
- Notes Database Integration (I use iAnywhere & mNotes suites)
- Possibly more RAM than I have on my Treo
- Promise of more supported business applications
- Multitasking between applications
- GPS Integration on some models
- Talk and use data features concurrently (some networks)
- Pocket VPN Client for major firewalls
- Skype IM
- SameTime IM
- And most important to me: EVDO Rev A.
That last one might be the limiter, there’s currently not many phones that offer Rev A.
