So the table is set...4 major cell phone carriers have these "next generation" Smartphones.
T-Mobile - gPhone (Google Android)
Sprint - Palm Pre
ATT - IPhone
Verizon - Blackberry Touch
I also might add that all platforms will eventually have the infamous app store. Palm and Blackbery announced late last year to be on the lookout for its app store/market/whatever you want to call it. I didn't even mention Chinese Mobile is set to release a Google android handset, one of the largest mobile providers in China.
What does this mean, this is probably a once in a life time deal for software application developers. The sky is the limit with everyone predicting the Iphone to have 30 million plus handsets in the market by 2010 and the gphone has more than 1.5 million handset in 5 months of it's initial launch, blackberry has like 7 - 10 millions users (I think). I could go on and on. My point is that this is defiantly a way to take a corner of the internet. All of these handsets touch the internet in some way form or fashion. I just want 2% of all these users...hehe
Stay tuned for some exciting updates coming in the next month!
BTW if anyone has any cool ideas for a mobile phone application drop me a note. I am sure we can work out a deal :-)

Hope everyone had a great holiday. I had a fantastic holiday, spent time with friends and family and literally unplugged (no email, no coding, nothing closely related to work). I got more of the same this week with New Years on the horizon. No really big plans expect spending time with wifey, this is one of my favorite times of the year. I reflect on the past year for lessoned learned and prepare for the next year.
2009 probably will be the most exciting ever! I hate to say it but 2009 will probably make or break the notion of me taking over a corner of the internet and becoming a self made millionaire. There is a lot going on and I will keep you abreast as things develop. Major milestone projects for 2009 include the following; I won't bother with the small ones.
- Launching our quilt site in Feb.
- Releasing a killer Smartphone application for the iPhone, gPhone, and blackberry.
- Launching new tax system for the state of GA for the alcohol and tobacco division.
Happy New Year to everyone and make sure you cherish time with family and friends.

At any rate, wifey and I are going to LA for a few days on Valentine's day weekend to do some networking in the LA techie community and enjoying sunny california, can't wait it will be a blast.
Look at who they picked, only 10 out of 100, pretty exclusive list.

I have never been short on big ideas, but I always fall short on EXECUTION. True story, I had an idea about creating an e-card in which you could send to friends and family and let them sign almost 18 months ago. I knew it was huge because I couldn't find any other website that did the same thing. Long story short, I waited to late to execute the idea and a company called www.groupcard.com beat me to the punch. Don't get me wrong you don't have to be the first to market all the time but it sure does help.
I guess you win some and you loose some. If you think you have a BIG IDEA go after it and make sure you EXECUTE and bring it to market. I decided to write this entry after I learned on mashable that GroupCard was chosen as one of the 5 companies that received a 225k grant from Facebook from it's FBFund which looks for great apps that make the world more social. (man I knew that was a huge idea).
