So, it looks like the only phone thus far that can use these calculators is… the iPhone. Don’t blame me – blame every other cell phone maker out there. I played with an LG Dare again a few days ago and was disappointed with its web browser this time.
I’m sure its a great phone. But, let’s be real, that’s not good enough any more.
- Touch screen
- Virtual QWERTY keyboard
- A screen that rotates when you tilt the camera
- MP3 player
- Digital camera, video camera
- Removable memory chip
- 500 contact with up to 5 phone numbers each
- A web browser that will support AJAX and XMLHttpRequest
- Decent support of cascading stylesheets
- No support of cookies/sessions
What does this mean for you? You can go to my site, but you can’t log in. If you can’t log in, you can’t use the calculators. :/
As a side note, just about every Verizon rep I’ve talked to pushes this phone’s 500 person contact list. My question, “How much memory does the phone have?” Their response: “It has 5 phone numbers per contact? Wow. That’s a lot. I didn’t know that.” Riiight – you didn’t know? Why have I heard that exact line from three separate reps? I don’t have 500 contacts. I don’t even know 500 people.
Verdict: It may be a good phone, but you won’t be able to use my calculators from it.
