I haven’t only been using mobile devices since they weighed 30 pounds, I have been covering them for just about as long.  I have interacted with thousands of mobile users about their work styles and helping determine what device might work for the individual.  The mobile […] Read more »

As promised, I ran the famous Battery Eater test on the Vye S37 and have the results. For those not familiar with Battery Eater, it’s a freeware application that performs a load test on a mobile device to determine the minimum run-time for that device. In […] Read more »

Note to handset manufacturers: if you’re not already getting your devices to Matt Miller on or before you launch a new device, you’re behind the eight-ball. Seriously! He did it again! Matt went to the T-Mobile store to pick up a new BlackBerry Curve, but all […] Read more »

If nobody else, I know that Eric Mack will appreciate this. Actually, he’s a Lotus Notes guru, so my guess is that he’s already aware of the mNotes5 beta.CommonTime is offering mNotes5 free while in beta, but after that all bets are off. Still, a reasonable […] Read more »

I haven’t ventured into Last.FM yet, even though I’ve been goaded on to try it by folks on Twitter. Pandora is still enjoyable for my everyday streaming so I’m sticking with it. Others might be Last.FM fans and if those others own a Nokia N800, they’ll […] Read more »

The Motorola Q9h lands at AT&T today without any surprises, but it’s still worth a mention to folks doing some early Christmas shopping for a new Windows Mobile 6 device. What, doesn’t everyone start holiday shopping the day after Halloween? The stores certainly seem to think […] Read more »

We don’t write about purely personal things very often on jkOnTheRun because that’s not what you come here for.  Some things are important enough to break that rule, and since family is very important to me I am doing so here.  Today would have been my […] Read more »

Kevin may be mad at me since he jumped off the deep end and ordered his Asus EEE for $399 from NewEgg.   I visited Walmart.com this morning and they are running a front page ad that lists an "Acer Laptop" for $348.  That’s really cheap even […] Read more »

We first covered the new music phone from Verizon, the Juke, a few weeks back when we got a first look at several new phones coming from Verizon.  One of them has just been released and we unexpectedly got our hands on the new Juke for […] Read more »

The Palm Centro didn’t offer any major new features when it arrived, but it certainly brings new value to the smartphone market. That’s the idea I get when I read the Mobile Gadgeteer’s detailed review. The full review is a must-read for anyone wondering how the […] Read more »

In the Windows Mobile world I’ve always relied on either eWallet or FlexWallet to securely secure my personal data. You know, things like: passwords, credit card numbers, bank accounts and such. While each of the apps I mentioned works very well and are worth the purchase, […] Read more »

Those crazy kids, what will they think of next? While I’m going “old school” to man the door tonight, some folks go all out. Take these two, for example. They’ve actually made themselves into life-sized iPhones, complete with large screens that show various shots of the […] Read more »

Just a quick note on a post we ran early this morning regarding Absolute’s Computrace LoJack and Laplink’s PCsync & PCmover software. The information for that post was provided to me via e-mail in the form of a press release. It looked interesting from a mobile […] Read more »

So I’ve had the Vye S37 review unit from Dynamism about a week now. Steve has his full review of the 1 GB unit up (he too, tested with 1 GB and 2 GB) that’s a great read and it reminded me to follow up on […] Read more »

Touch screen devices are nothing new but since the debut of the iPhone, actually even before it launched, OEMs have been adding advanced touch capabilities to their devices.  One of the first touch phones to appear was the HTC Touch, a Windows Mobile smartphone that added […] Read more »
