My Mobile-Only Day One

Yesterday was Day One of my mobile-only experiment. It generally went well with minimum hitches. So, how did my mobile-only day one go?

Mobile-Only Day One

How Did My Mobile-Only Day One Go?

The HP TouchPad, a tablet running WebOS, was my primary computing tool. I did lots of web browsing on it, as well as all publishing of articles to Mobility blog.

Editing articles in the blog’s WordPress interface was generally okay. I had a minor issue with the WebOS browser while putting text in blockquotes though. Instead of putting just the highlighted text in the blockquotes, it would include all text in the text box. As such, I have been having to do blockquotes manually.

Besides publishing here on the blog, I did most of my tweeting on the Samsung Galaxy S II, and a little bit on the Nokia E7. All my instant messaging was done on those two as well, as the TouchPad is a very limited computing tool due to the extreme lack of 3rd party apps to extend functionality. Android and iOS tablets are far better value for this reason.

My Mobile-Only Day One has come and gone. Keep a date with me tomorrow for my memoirs of my Day Two.

  1. as the TouchPad is a very limited computing tool due to the extreme lack of 3rd party apps to extend functionality. Android and iOS tablets are far better value for this reason.

    Maybe that deficiency can truly be mitigated by porting Android into it ..http://goo.gl/cvRMS..?

  2. All those stuff mentioned above so far can be done on a mobile. Not much sweat today, Mr. Mobility. I’m patiently expecting the difficult tasks. Like for instance, if you are compelled to transfer or copy some documents/file from a hard disk drive to your mobile!

  3. Mr. Mobility, I’m using the touchpad too. Are you providing the wifi using your E7 or the Sgs2? I’ve had to do without browsing on my touchpad due to lack of compatible wifi hotspots.
    Also, have you tried buying any apps on the HP App Catalog? Only free apps are available for Nigeria.

  4. I also have a hp touchpad and was pretty much forced to install the android cynamogenmod android on the touchpad due to lack of the apps that I need in webos.I pretty much dual boot now.

  5. Quam, the main reason why I bought the Touchpad was for the purpose of dualbooting it with Cyanomogen.
    I’m waiting for a good enough ICS ROM to be released for it as I don’t wanna install Gingerbread.
