    PinStack Week in Review: Happy New Year!

    Advertisement



    Happy New Year!! I don't know about ya'll, but I can't believe it's already 2009! Time seems to fly by so fast you barely even notice. This year proves to be very exciting in the smartphone world. As many of you may have noticed, PinStack has taken the initiative to support the ever changing mobile world. No longer just BlackBerry, we now have support forums for all mobile platforms, including iphone, google android and windows mobile. I know, changes are hard to take in sometimes, but as cliche as it may sound, change is inevitable. Thanks Hayden for making this the BEST site for geeks like us

    REVIEW: AT&T Fuze / HTC Touch Pro by mjwood0
    Verdict: Overall, very nice phone with a few productivity issues
    Pros: Beautiful screen, tons of third party support
    Cons: Not as productive for me
    URL: http://www.wireless.att.com/cell-phone-service/cell-phone-details/?device=HTC+FUZE(TM)&q_sku=sku3090226
    Price: $249 w/ two year agreement
    Overall rating: Casual User: 4 out of 5. Business User: 2 out of 5. (Explained in the Conclusion section below)

    Background
    I'll be the first to admit, I loved my Blackberry Curve 8310. It did everything I absolutely needed it to do but was missing a few "cool" features such as WiFi and 3G. However, my local area didn't yet have 3G and well, I figured WiFi wasn't absolutely necessary -- so I continued to delay upgrading. Finally, AT&T flipped the switch on the local 3G network and I had a week off around Christmas, so I decided it was time to pull the trigger on a new smartphone figuring I'd have a week to get things setup before I returned to work.

    I love the Week in Review. It helps me stay connected and current. I can't always stop by long enough to read everything.

    Great Job!

    Great WIR as always, Cherri! I must admit that I do miss the mainly Blackberry pinstack.

    I'm rather disappointed that Pinstack now has other mobile phone information and threads. I was VERY pleased with Blackberry only info. I relate it to buying a magazine with lots of advertising. I guess I'll have to go elsewhere now for my Bold info since now it'll be harder to find.
