If our smartphones truly are to be our conduits to the world, they have to do so in a way that best suits us and our unique needs. That's why there's more than one smartphone and more than one tablet - because we have different needs. So you have to figure out which platform is right for you and which style of device checks off the most boxes possible. That device needs to work well with the devices your friends and family use, and it needs to be something you're willing to look at for months, if not years, to come. Mobile devices are among the most personal devices that have ever been, and they're only going to be more so.
We say it every week, and we mean it: we value your feedback on Talk Mobile. This year's publishing might be over, but Talk Mobile has been a massive experience for us, and we want to know what you thought about it. Good, bad, indifferent, we want to hear it all. That's why there's a comments section down below - sound off and tell us what you think.
When we started planning Talk Mobile, the idea was about lifting up the quality of the conversation around mobile technology, not just amongst the bloggers, but with you the community as well. After ten weeks of throwing thousands of words and multiple videos at you a day, you never let up or relented in the conversation. It's been nothing short of astonishing to watch the discussions unfold in the community. You rock.
And so we've picked out the best comments from the past week and laid them out below. If yours has been picked as a winning comment, keep an eye on your email, because we have some awesome prizes to send your way!
