No more Mobile magazine

I purchased a subscription to Mobile back in June and enjoyed the magazine and even wrote them to try to conduct reviews for the publication. Yesterday I received a copy of MaximumPC in the mail with a cover letter stating that there was no longer going to be a Mobile magazine and that my subscription would be filled with MaximumPC until my subscription ends. So now I am back to only having Smartphone & Pocket PC Magazine delivered in hard copy. I get much more timely news and coverage online, but I still do enjoy magazines related to mobile devices because there are times when it is just nice to have a hard copy to read.

By the way, I have a short quote in the latest Smartphone & Pocket PC Magazine for Laridian’s PocketBible software that I judged in the 2005 Software Awards. You will also see a couple quotes from me in the Sena Cases advertisement.

    Sounds like there is a viod now to be filled. Or at least a Christ-centered one. I havent read many paper mags in a long while since I do most reading online; but do find some of the journalistic abilities of printed items a touch better than that of some online runs (including my own).

    You know I have yet to buy any magazine related to mobile computing. I do enjoy PC mag and have subscribed on and off for a few years . . . Even though I could probably get every bit of info off their web site and probably on a more timely basis, I still prefer holding the mag vs any of my computers. As far as mobile phone info, I am exactly the opposite! I have seen a few mags on the newsstands, but don’t ever even peak at them. For that fix I rely on engadget and others for my info . . . .
    Peace and Grace!

    Yeah, that’s the thing with a magazine focused on mobile computing. The people who are most likely to read it are probably quite web savvy and get all their news and info online so have no real need to pay $6 or so for a print magazine.

    I do like to pass around Pocket PC Magazine in my office lunch room though as it makes for a good conversation starter and many of my coworkers have no clue how powerful these devices really are. That said, I do have our company president hooked now and he has moved from the old Samsung Phone Edition to a new Audiovox PPC6600 (i-mate PDA2K) device and also has the Verizon EVDO data plan.
