OK; I’m going to have to turn in my Paleotechnologist Card — or at least cross out the “Paleo” part — but this is pretty cool. I’m on the Amtrak, connected to the ‘Net via Internet sharing on my HTC Mogul — connected via Bluetooth PAN. Cool, especially using this connection to access my desktop back in PHL via Remote Desktop.
It seems to me that devices like the Mogul are the first of a new class of device. With connectivity via cell, WiFi, and Bluetooth, in addition to USB etc, it can handle cell phone calls, the usual Internet functions (POP, SMTP, HTTP, SSH, FTP yada yada) — and can also act as a router/NAT proxy. Not bad for a pocket-size gizmo.
Now if they could only improve the battery life. I wonder if it’ll make it to FBG?
Edit: Nope. The battery gave up just past Washington. It was fun while it lasted, though.
