Gadgetry Flip-Flopping

By: leelefever on September 16, 2005 - 8:02am

A while back I wrote about the search for gadgetry, where I was considering a DSLR Camera and laptop.  Thanks to advice in the comments and other places, I think we're going to start with the small gadgets.  So, I'm flip-flopping a bit.  For now, we're planning to take the point and shoot camera and a pocketPC/smartphone for our blogging needs.  For the heavy-duty site maintenance and picture uploading, we'd use Internet cafes.

I'm having a beer with Brian Fling of Mobile Design today to talk about the options in worldphones and blogging.  Here are some of the considerations for what I'm looking for:

  • Connect to a maximum of international providers (data and voice) –
  • Quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE I imagine
  • Qwerty keyboard with possible folding full-size keyboard
  • SD card slot
  • WiFi
  • Email
  • Camera
  • Media Player for MP3s and Video
  • Unlocked

Here are some of the devices I'm considering...

I think it's time to start trying some out.  After talking to Brian I might have to pick something up this weekend to give it a try.  If anyone has any advice, please comment.
