And now the phone on your desk can run .NET too…

Check out the new release from Verizon…

Verizon One is a “super” featured desktop phone that runs the .NET Compact Framework… I wonder if they let you develop for the thing?  It would be cool to write a RSS reader for the thing 😉


Let me know if you get one, I’d love to hear how you like it…

    Knowing VZW they will probably cripple it in such a way that you will have to purcahse a HUGE and $$$$ developer pack to do anything interesting. However there are always hardware hackers….. They beat GIN they can beat this…

    I wonder if we can get one for the Mobile Computing Lab. I guess it’s not very mobile, but it does run the compact framework. via Brad Abrams…
