The Party Line — Phone Buzz of the Day

Here are some of today’s phone conversations I enjoyed reading or viewing on the web, along with some brief thoughts:

tmobile_logo-300x300T-Mobile Lights up 21Mbps service in Philadelphia (Wireless Week) — I don’t know of any devices that can use it yet, but I wish I did since it’s in my backyard. T-Mo now has 20 cell towers offering zippy HSPA+ service in Philly. The GSM carrier is leap-frogging AT&T’s upgrade plans for 7.2Mbps service, but without supporting devices, there isn’t much to offer just yet. T-Mo says the HSPA+ service will expand in 2010, and like AT&T and Verizon, plans for LTE in the future.

HTC Snap reviewed times two (Gear Diary) — Interested in either the CDMA or GSM HTC Snap? I am, since I loved their predecessor, the Dash. Both get the review treatment and confirm that the Snap is a solid Windows Mobile device. Long battery life was a common denominator, but the keyboards are noticeably different. Oh and that Inner Circle function for managing key data? That got two snaps in a circle.

OneDialer brings Google Voice to WinMo (WMExperts) — This bit is old, but I marked it in my RSS reader for later. Seeing as I thoroughly enjoy using Google Voice on my Palm Pre and Apple iPhone, I thought OneDialer might be handy for Google Voice users with a Windows Mobile device. It’s $7, but there’s a 15-day trial for you. It appears to integrate with your native contacts, which is a huge time-saver.
