Smart Devices Database Now With Review Links

Smart Devices Database Now With Review Links
When we launched the Smart Devices Database a few months ago I had the idea of creating a tool that would allow users to quickly find information on Windows Mobile Pocket PC Phone Edition and Smartphone devices.

You see, the biggest problem these days is that a couple of manufacturers produce these devices, but each distributor or mobile operator will sell them with their own brand and name. Thus, it is very hard for consumers to find the right information - even if the information is available sometimes the name is not well known.

The tool allows users to list all devices in the database, or filter by manufacturer, model, brand or name.

What I've been doing behind the scenes, and it is now live, is a collection of links to reviews on each device. But if you find your device, for instance the i-mate Jasjar (made by HTC and codenamed Universal), you will automatically have links for all reviews of the same class, i.e. all HTC Universal devices: Dopod 900, i-mate Jasjar, O2 Xda Exec, Orange SPV M5000, QTEK 9000, T-Mobile MDA Pro, Vodafone VPA IV, and so on.

Since they are all the same (with small difference in colours, sometimes minor cosmetic changes), you will benefit of having a huge collection of reviews!

I hope you enjoy finding more about your Windows Mobile devices...
