I’m passing this along from Tanner Herriott. On the surface, it’s the most complete, oh-mama phone out there, the Pomegranate phone: browser, phone and GPS. But then it offers more: coffee brewing, shaver and harmonica.
And then you realize after watching all the cheesy scenario videos about the whizbang features…. it’s all a marketing site for…. Nova Scotia. That’s right, Canada.
First, that’s kinda cool. Second, they reeeally have a lot of time on their hands to build this site and create the videos.
And apparently I have just enough time to write about it.
Apple recently hooked up with Best Buy to sell iPhones, in addition to Apple stores and AT&T stores. Now comes a memo that Wal-Mart may sell my favorite phone soon. But after Christmas. Read this report from AlleyInsider for why, and why it may make sense.
Here’s something cool. I would certainly use it – mobile boarding passes. American, which I’ve had no shortage of bad luck with, is rolling out its Mobile Boarding Passes program, according to mobilecrunch.
American Airlines has hopped on board with the launch of their Mobile Boarding Passes program. If you’re flying out of Chicago (ORD), Los Angeles (LAX), or Orange County (SNA), you’re given the option to send a digital boarding pass to your cell phone via e-mail. The boarding pass contains a QR-code-ish bar code – security will scan this, and you’re on your way.
Judging by the comments on the mobilecrunch site, other airlines – Alaska, Lufthansa – already have something similar in place.
