MobileTechRoundup 56

Smartphone data consumption, a hands on review of a 3G PC card adapter good for UMPCs and the real question: is ‘tethering’ a dirty word?

MoTR 56 is 35:33 minutes long and is a 32.6 MB file in MP3 format.

INTRO: Based on “Time v2.1″ by Meta Sektion, additional mixing by James Kendrick.

HOSTS: James Kendrick, Matt Miller and Kevin C. Tofel

What kind of data do Smartphone users consume and why does Matt consume 100 MG per month while Kevin consumes 2 GB per month?
How do you get a 3G connection on a UMPC that doesn’t have a PC card slot? Try the U132 PCMCIA to USB adapter from Elan Digital Systems, which Kevin did with a Verizon EV-DO card. Huge kudos to Allegiance Technology Partners for the review unit!
James makes “tethering” sound so dirty! 😉
Pocket Informant is now available for Smartphones.
Freeware of the show: Virtual PC 2004 from Microsoft.
Listener e-mail from David: Can the Nokia N93 take the place of my PDA and camera?
Better yet: can Nokia be the official Smartphone of the MobileTechRoundup podcast?!?

  1. A few comments:

    1) I run Pocket Informant on a 200MHz i-Mate JAMin with no problems, so running it on a 400MHz XV6700 shouldn’t be an issue.

    2) Regarding Reader activation, I installed Reader to that same JAMin and did not activate it. The last couple of nights, I’ve been reading The DaVinci Code on it, which I bought unlocked from in 2004 and just got around to starting last month. 😉 So no activation is necessary just to use the program.
