THOUGHT: Is T-Mobile Germany's Apple iPhone Monopoly finally at an End?
Posted by Arne Hess - at 13:40 CET under 09 - Thoughts

Okay, from today, Apple's new iPhone 4 is officially on sale in the U.S. and parts of Europe and all around, friends and folks are queuing in front of the stores to get an iPhone. However, if you know me, you know that I'm not a big fan of the iPhone at all and while there's not too much wrong with iPhone (except that Apple is ignoring some of the well established GSMA and 3GPP standards like MMS for the first iPhone or UMTS video telephony for the upcoming iPhone 4), I prefer more open platforms like Windows Phone, Android or webOS. Nevertheless, since I've worked in the mobile industry for many years and running the::unwired, a good amount of my (German) friends recently asked me if they should purchase an iPhone 4 or not.

THOUGHT: Bluetooth Car Kits and Smartphones - Still somewhat Useful but too often Painful
Posted by Arne Hess - at 18:10 CET under 09 - Thoughts

If you are a long time follower of the::unwired, you know that I'm a big fan of Bluetooth and its possibilities; and if you follow me on Twitter, you also know that I recently purchased a new car. For sure I ordered my car with an inbuilt Bluetooth car kit and since I'm changing my mobile phones too often, and too often I'm using mobile phones which aren't supporting the Remote SIM Access Profile (rSAP), I've decided to go with the basic Hands-Free Profile (HFP) Bluetooth system only. Additionally, the car is also equipped with an inbuilt GPS navigation system (Audi MMI plus) and I somewhat expected that the Bluetooth car kit and the GPS navigation works together, which they do - theoretically.
