SPECIAL WEEKLY SIG MEETING UPDATE 24 - 30 JANUARY 2010
School of Arts
280 Pitt Street, Sydney
Friends, this is to introduce a NEW SIG -- the Smartphone SIG
The Smart Phone SIG will explore the capabilities of mobile phones with soft/hard keyboards that connect to the internet, some having the power of a PC (800MHz) from the year 2000.
We will use a set of work-in-progress criteria to compare these devices eg. ease of use, reliability, speed, storage, power of operating system, number of applications (office, camera, video, GPS, map navigation, music, calendar, internet browsing, email), hardware features, price, plans from communications vendors.
The SIG will look at how phones have become so powerful (technologies developed in last 5-10 years), invite Vendors to supply new phones for trial, and will have a segment inviting members to talk about their own phone, explaining why they chose it, and the best and worst features.
The SmartPhone SIG will commence on Friday 19 March 2010 - 6pm - 8pm - 1st floor, Sydney Mechanics' School of Arts, 280 Pitt Street, Sydney.
I'll be there and I hope you will be too.
