After selling the domain name, BApps.com, I used the blog's sub domain (business-apps.blogspot.com) for this blog's home web address. But last week I acquired a new domain name, www.Handheld.Tools, and I feel that this blog will be perfect for it.
I have already been reviewing and discussing business applications here, so now it is high time to recommend my favorite handheld devices, and apps on a grand scale.
I plan to review smart phones, tablets, PDAs, their installed and available applications, as well as possibly hit on some of the handheld device programming tools while I venture down that road and learn them myself.
I will readily admit that I am an elder blogger, my father and brother laughed and scoffed at me when I told them that one day we would all own more than one computer (even carry them around). That was back when computers required a dedicated climate controlled space the size of a large room. But I knew what was coming.
My advanced age, and the fact that I have been a GUI designer, aficionado and critic of OSes and all UI systems for nearly 20 years now (Amiga, Linux, Macintosh, Unix, Windows), which makes me somewhat of a skeptic over the learned touch user interface, but I have been using it with smart phones, tablets and other devices for over 4 years, now.
My seniority does offer its own unique look through an experienced eye trained to spot the details many others have missed. My outlook is unique and I am picky.
I currently have experience with (own or have access to) the following handheld devices:
- Samsung Galaxy Note II (Android Ice Cream Sandwich)
- Samsung Galaxy S IV (Android Ice Cream Sandwich)
- Samsung TrakFone (TrakFone's proprietary OS)
- Motorola Droid X (Android)
- PDA (Dead Palm PDA)
- iPad (iOS, version 1 tablet)
- Asus Transformer TF301 (Dead Android tablet)
- Polaroid T10 (worthless Android 10" tablet)
- Polaroid T7 (useless Android 7" internet tablet)
- Chromebook (small Chrome OS laptop unit)
If you would dare to allow your handheld device or application reviewed by myself (I will not hold back - I expect a lot - lots more than I have seen to this date with most devices and apps, especially with cameras), you can contact me via Doug-Peters.com/contact or through my Google+ profile and submit it for review.
