Platform Agnostic? Chris Leckness Returns to Mobile Reviews After Almost Year-Long Break
Hi, Chris Leckness here.
I have been using an Android phone as my daily driver for the last 8-9 months. I purchased the Motorola Atrix and have enjoyed using it so much that I only just recently started itching for a replacement. This is quite a personal accomplishment for me considering the fact that I once changed phones out 3-5 times a month for years prior to this one.
Let me explain myself.
If you recognize my name, I am the former owner of Aximsite/Mobilitysite. Last year, about this time, I walked away from mobile blogging, the Microsoft MVP program and almost every other activity that kept me close to the mobile device world. During the time that I ran these sites, I wrote about and reviewed hundreds of Windows Mobile (Windows Phone), Android and iOS devices. I’ve owned all the hottest phones up to last year, but then I called it quits and donated more than 40 mobile devices to support our troops last year.
I guess I’m back now!
Over the last 10 years, I was awarded the Microsoft MVP, Window Mobile award for 6 of those years. I was invited to numerous industry focus events, and attended CTIA and CES more times than I can remember. Yes, I am a former Windows Mobile Fan Boy, but around the time that Windows Mobile 6.5 was released, I started giving other companies a chance. Despite not being an Apple fan, I have owned almost all of their mobile offerings and I still have a few laying around. I still use the original iPad on occasion and I have an iPhone 4 that is collecting dust. I will be dusting it off to bring you guys some fun app reviews soon!
Like I said, I have reviewed many Android phones, but until 2.3, I wasn’t a fan. Android was all that Windows Mobile could have been and I held a level of resentment towards Google because of that. I still own the Xperia X10 in white, and still use the Motorola Atrix daily.
That said, I have used and enjoyed the 3 major mobile operating systems and now consider myself platform agnostic. And I’m ready to bring that perspective back to readers.
I look forward to sharing with ya’ll again!
