After the iPhone

Apple's hot gadget inspires the competition.

Some smart phones are ready for the small business limelight. I have been testing one such model, HTC's Mogul ($299 with plan from Sprint).

While the slide-away keyboard is among the largest for a handheld, the on-screen type is tiny. Certain features require the use of several fingers from both hands plus (!) a small, fussy stylus.

But once I got the hang of it, the Mogul simply rocked the house. It was one of the earliest smart phones to ship with Microsoft Windows' new Mobile 6.0 Professional operating system. And if you're looking for a reason to upgrade to Vista on your computer, Mobile 6.0 is it.

With a little hack this unit can be turned into a legitimate EV-D0 data modem that can power my laptop. That alone is worth the purchase price.
