I have talked about smart phones in the past and I am still a professed iPhone fan.  I just read an article from my iPhone about smart phones that I wanted to share with you because it touches on two phone companies that have a special place in my heart; Motorola and Blackberry.  Motorola produced one of my favorite phones of all time, the Startac.  It was one my first mobile phones and one of the best, that was until I got my first Blackberry.  Blackberry has a special place because it was the first mobile phone that had email, contacts, and calendars along with limited web browsing.  Enough with cruising down memory lane, if you are in the market for a smart phone you have plenty of choices.  People I know who own a smart phone are entrenched with their smart phones.  I am a professed iPhone fan and will continue to be until a phone comes along that can match its functionality and ease of use. 

Take a look at the article; “The CLIQ, Storm2 Join Long Parade of iPhone Threats”.  It starts off with “It's raining smart phones. No, make that super-smart phones, the type of hand-held computer, like Apple's iPhone or the models powered by Google's Android software, that browse the Web well, have sophisticated communication functions and are made to run a wide variety of modern third-party apps. This holiday season, new super-smart phone models seem to be appearing weekly.”
