If there’s one thing I know about my good friend Warner Crocker, it’s that he loves pundits and punditry. Just loves ’em. Hence, it is with great giddiness that I share news that Freescale, the semiconductor maker that puts the “smart” in smart devices, has named Warner one of the top 20 Smart Mobile Device pundits of 2010 (or should that be shortened to “SmartPundit”)?
All kidding aside (and it is hilarious if you’re familiar with Warner’s views on modern punditry), this is a pretty big deal. Turns out Freescape had been gathering feedback for the past couple weeks and from it put together a list of the twenty most revered commentators on smart mobile devices, such as smartphones, smartbooks and eReaders, and it is one heck of a list (in alphabetical order).

Whoa! Honor enough to be counted among our mobile tech comrades across the blogosphere, but to be named alongside the top tech guns of mainstream media is quite a feat. Big round of applause to our new resident SmartPundit (BTW, pretty sure I’m coining a new term here), as well as all the others, and huge thanks to everyone who voted for Warner. He is definitely our most revered commentator and a true (as in the original meaning of the word) pundit of mobile technology.
