I switched from Microsoft to Apple on desktop, but on mobile I’m jumping (trying) from Palm to Microsoft. I’ve bought a Dopod 720w, which runs windows mobile 5 smartphone edition. It’s gorgeous and slim, with bright screen, Wi-Fi, Edge, Gprs, push e-mail, excellent call quality and long talk time battery life. You can listen to the music or watch videos with it’s windows media player 10 mobile (supports AAC, MP3, WAV, WMA, MPEG-4 , and WMV files). I’ve been mobile surfing web for a while and discovered that my blog is not so mobile friendly. I found a neat script, with step-by-step instruction that converts your blog or web site mobile friendly in just 2 minutes.
So, here is my mobile friendly blog — http://mobile.nirlog.com, created in 2 minutes.

For the mobile email currently I’m using 4smartphone.net, they provide hosted push email service. I synchronize email, calendar and contacts with Dopod. So, my emails, calander and contacts are in sync with my mobile, desktop (outlook/entourage) and web (outlook web). This is an amazing convenience and control. Push email is cheaper and easier to implement than Blackberry.

If you’re looking for a free mobile email service, then Gmail Mobile is an excellent choice. You need to download a small java application to your mobile device once, after that you can access your Gmail on your phone with few clicks. I’ve tried the Gmail Mobile and can say that it simply rocks.
