Can a completely connected tech savvy mom-on-the go abandon her laptop and beloved phone in favor of a single device that supposedly does it all? That’s what I’ll be attempting to do over the next four months while participating in the AT&T’s Lose the Laptop Challenge and I need your help!
AT&T has outfitted me with an HTC Tilt, a cell phone that is so much more than a phone. The HTC Tilt is a device that boasts Windows Mobile, a 3.2 megapixel camera, and a video camera. While I’m excited about trying a new device, I have to admit that I’m a little wary. Even though I embrace technology and love to try new things, I don’t like to change what I personally use because it tends to hamper my productivity a lot at first. For me, changing phones means abandoning the use of familiar apps like TweetDeck, figuring out how to set up my Tilt to check multiple e-mail accounts from different providers, and connect to my robust address book so I’ll have access to all of my contacts with a single touch. Egads!
So I need your help!
I need all of my faithful Tech Savvy Mama readers (besides my parents- hi Mom and Dad!) to click over to the AT&T Lose the Laptop Challenge to read the rest of my first post about how I am using the HTC Tilt for this month’s travel challenge and vote for me.
And don’t worry…if you win the phone, I’ll give you tips on how to use it if you win especially if you vote for me right now!
Huge thanks for voting often and good luck!
