The Roundup – Week Ending December 19th – Cell Phone Bans, Mango vs. Android, Apple beats HTC Taiwan
We’re starting a new weekly segment on Brighthand called The RoundUp. The purpose of the RoundUp is to highlight some of the most active and interesting threads of the week and to take a look at important developments in the Smartphone industry. So away we go with the first issue!
1) Some of this weeks most visited recent threads include:
Fed Agency Wants a National Ban on Using a Phone While Driving Discussion
And a related thread We Shouldn't Ban Cell Phones in Cars, We Should Ban Drivers Discussion
Smartphone browser speed tests: Mango vs. Android
For those who want to keep their private details private: Can I register my iTouch at iTunes with $25 plastic scratcher?
2) Public service announcement! You only have four shopping days til Christmas, so check out the The 12 Tech Days of Christmas. Also, if you’re looking for a few last minute stocking stuffers, there is a very good review of 25 Accessories and Gadgets for iPhones and iPads on NotebookReview.
3) In Industry News, we find that Apple has won a limited victory over Taiwan HTC in its Smartphone link lawsuit. Matthew Yglesias of Slate notes that Apple’s win is our loss.
And Dell is launching a Smartphone with China’s Internet giant Baidu. Could this change the market?
4) In our LookBack Segment, check out SmartPhoneHistory.com, a site that is trying to catalog all of the Windows powered Smartphones that have been made.
5) And finally, a little fun - The Best Viral Videos of 2011 - because you just can't watch too many cute cat videos.
Have a great week!
