Normally when I do my blogposts I wait till I go home and start working on it on my desktop but if I’m out at a particular event with important topics that are shared like a meet up I tend to bring my laptop with me. My laptop is great but at times I find it a bit cumbersome to use in order to collect content such as pictures and videos as well as putting together blog drafts for later posting and communicating with fellow members of LATISM (Latinos in Social Media) about topics focusing on Latinos and online media technology through Twitter. Mobile technology has come a long ways in providing multifunctionality for games, entertainment, business and communication which allows you to leave your laptop at home. Micro-blogs such as Tumblr and Posterous are the perfect platforms for today’s smartphones because it allows you to do quick postings of text, pictures, music, and videos and share it with your friends and fans.
One example of a a versatile multimedia smartphone is the Samsung Epic 4G which is coming out soon for Sprint. This smartphone offers the functionalities you need to blog a post or collect information. First, the Samsung Epic is run on Google’s Android OS, so you have thousands of apps that you can choose to download and use. It offers a comfortable slide-out QWERTY keyboard, a super AMOLED touch screen that improves visuals, a 5 megapixel camera and a 720p video camera for high quality shots. The two things that will attract this particular smartphone to bloggers is that it features the fastest processor of any Android phone on the market and with Sprint’s 4G WiMax network, uploading and sharing content is a speedy process plus the long battery life will satisfy those who have to switch batteries or find an outlet to plug their smartphones in, I know how that is and trust me it gets tedious especially in the middle of blogging at a conference or special event.
If the Samsung Epic isn’t the smartphone for you, take your time doing research and find a smartphone that’ll fit your personal blogging needs. Checking for network connectivity, speed, interactivity, apps and multimedia capabilities are some of the elements that you should consider before making a purchase.
