Endless choices when it comes to communication devices

The choices are endless when it comes to wireless communication devices these days.

But what good is a phone or computer if it doesn't give you what you need.  

With so many devices to choose from, how do you know which one best suits your lifestyle and needs. Smart phones are the new kids on the block. They do so much more than simply make a phone call and send text messages.

"There seems to be concern with some users that smart phones are very complex. But it's really the opposite," Verizon Assistant District Manager Jimmy Oliver says."It's one of those things where once you understand it and once you see it and somebody explains it to you, you understand it very quickly."

Business types gravitate toward the Blackberry. 

"It's gonna give opportunity for customers to be organized in terms of their calendar, their email and they are also able to utilize applications that are available as well," said Oliver."For all intents and purposes, it's a great product, very simple to use, very intuitive."

And one of the newer smart phones, the Android.

"The person that would be best served by an Android product would be somebody who wants to be able to personalize their phone.  Somebody who wants to have access to an app market where 60 percent of their applications are for free," said Oliver."Also the 4G product is going to give you speed 10 times faster than 3G."

4g technology is also powering tablets, which are fun to use.

"We could draw with this, we could take pictures, we could do whatever we want with this thing," said Oliver.

But tablets are more than child's play. The sleek,lightweight devices offer all the features of your office laptop with lightning speed.

"If I'm a real estate agent and I want to be able to see all the listings in my area, this is powered through Google and MLS and I can actually pull up and see homes that are for sale in my area," said Oliver."In addition, let's say that I'm a stock broker and I want to be able to look at what's going on real time, this is going to give me all the information I need to make the most informed decision."

    The annual Walk for Water raised almost $300,000 for the local non-profit Water Mission. An estimated 5,000 people people walked three miles while carrying buckets of water in downtown Charleston to simulate the distance some people in developing countries or disaster areas must travel for access to clean water. “We don't understand the experiences that they are going through.  A three-mile walk to an unsafe water source [and] the sicknesses that come with that.  It'...More >>
