Smartphone & Pocket PC Magazine Special iPhone Edition

For quite a few years, I've enjoyed getting Windows Mobile news from a traditional print magazine called Smartphone & Pocket PC Magazine that does a great job of covering the use of mobile tech in the enterprise.

Found Footage: A Chinese iPhone rip-off
