    Smile PinStack Week in Review: Smartphone News, Updates & More


    TGIF everyone! Who's excited about the Super Bowl (click the link for some Super Bowl trivia) on Sunday? Since my Cowboys dropped the ball (literally), I'll be cheering for the Cards this weekend. Sorry Steeler fans Life in the world of smartphones has been a little slow lately with no real tangible rumors or news coming out in the past week or so. Those of you who were lucky to get your hands on the new TMO 8900, congrats! I am sooo jealous Those who are still waiting (be it for the official consumer TMO release or for other GSM carriers to release), it won't be long now

    Tiny Pictures Radar iPhone App available
    Mobile phone users are increasingly taking images with their camera phones and sharing them with friends around the block or around the country on social networks. Sharing of images in real-time is one of the reasons the cellular networks in Washington D.C. were strained so much during the recent inauguration of president Obama. A new application is now available for the iPhone called Tiny Pictures Radar. The purpose of the Radar app is to let iPhone users share images they take with the phone in real-time with friends on any network using any mobile device. Images can also be shared to social networking sites like Twitter and Facebook. If you like the idea of Radar but don’t use an iPhone, versions of the software are available for Java platforms, Windows Mobile, Sidekick, and Blackberry handsets. The Radar mobile website also functions with any web-enabled phone on any network around the globe.
