If you guys have not seen it yet, you may want to get in gear and sign it. What exactly, well the petition for Verizon wireless to end its contracts. There are currently about 130,000 signatures and about 17,000 short of its 150,000 goal. You can find and sign this petition on change.org.
Verizon has long stated that they would not change or get rid of contracts but when other service providers are doing away with their contracts (T-mobile), it might be hard for big red not to follow.
Effective November 8, 2010 Microsoft kicks off the release of Windows Mobile 7, adding to the number of Exchange-ready phones available to the Business World. Pre-release reviews have been mixed, but even the most negative reviews I’ve seen, seem to see this OS as a serious player. Initially on devices from AT&T and T-Mobile, Verizon and Sprint will also have phones, shortly into the next year. Phones will come from manufacturers LG, HTC, Samsung and Dell. For more information on Windows Mobile 7, got to http://www.windowsphone7.com/.

Apple announced that the company is releasing the beta version of its AirPrint wireless printing for iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch, a key component of Apple’s iOS 4.2 software update, illustrates the extent to which the ability to print wirelessly is being taken by hardware and software developers alike. Although Apple’s products don’t find their way into the offices of small to medium size businesses nearly as often as brands such as HP, Dell and countless others, the capability to print wirelessly, particularly from your mobile device, is becoming of greater importance. Apple announced Hewlett-Packard printers would be the first to support AirPrint with compatible devices to include HP Photosmart, Officejet Pro and LaserJet Pro series ePrint-enabled printers. However, HP offers its own line of printers offering Bluetooth wireless technology, and many more HP printers can be upgraded to support Bluetooth with the purchase of the HP bt500 Bluetooth Adapter. HP notes on its mobile printing Website that while many phones no longer require any further steps, some phones require users to pair their devices prior to printing for the first time.
