Where, oh where is the infamous MS marketing machine when it comes to my favorite gadget , the smartphone? I was just reading about the video iPod here: http://www.indianexpress.com/full_story.php?content_id=80560 and could just not resist posting a comment.
And although it will never replace a full-size television, it is likely to appeal to anyone who wants to watch TV shows or other videos while commuting on mass transit, traveling, sitting in waiting rooms or working out on a treadmill
There are no movies -- yet. And although you can transfer music from CDs to an iPod, you can’t do the same with movies you own on DVD
I can do this on my smartphone today! Not only can I listen to music, I can watch any DVD I own, as well as shows recorded from my Media Center. I can even control my media center from my phone, so if I am out and happen to realize I wanted to watch something I can connect to my media center at home and set it to record via WebGuide.
IMO we ( as well as the vendors) should be shouting about the smartphone as loud as possible. What's all the iPod video fuss about again?
