The Queue | Android Honeycomb | Blackberry Playbook | Glympse | ooVoo.com
What a week! I was blessed to be able to spend time in Barcelona, Spain at the World Mobile Congress which is THE event for mobile each year. The theme throughout was tablets and specifically the new operating systems from Google and Blackberry respectively called the Android Honeycomb and Playbook. I had a chance to spend some hands on time with both devices and was really impressed. As someone who LOVES his iPad I have to say that Apple better be careful as these two new options are going to be wildly popular with the masses. To watch on mobile devices click here.
Also featured in The Queue are some amazing apps and technologies that seem a perfect fit for a tech savvy Realtor.
ooVoo.com is a free multi person video chat tool that works across devices and across connection speeds so 3G, Wifi, tablet, smart phone, PC and Mac are all options.
Glympse is a new location sharing technology that really has some amazing features and could be leveraged with clients whom you are meeting at a certain place at a certain time.
SwiftKey is changing the way we type on touch screen devices by not only helping us spell but by literally finishing our sentences.
HP has some great new integration with Blackberry for mobile printing options called ePrint that works with both your home printer and with any Fed Ex location.
SPB Software is leading the way in the world of customizing Android operating systems to a 3D look and feel.
Finally in completely unrelated to business but insanely cool news, Google Body is an amazing way to look at the human body and was probably the most visually impressive technology of the event.
I had a blast and hope that you enjoyed my coverage of the World Mobile Congress 2011 from Barcelona. I was also able to take several pictures of the location which was stunning to say the least.
So are you getting a tablet? Did Blackberry impress you? Is Android the future because of their open operating system? Would love to know what you enjoyed in this week’s Queue in the comments below.
