I Have a Blackberry...how can I do mobile video?--iPod Touch!

Dr. Z has been analyzing various ways as to how you all out there use your pagers and smartphones.

Many of you with Blackberries and Sidekicks do not want to get out of your 2-year commitment with your provider (ATT, Verizon, T-Mobile.)

But you want to do mobile video–how??

Simple–get an iPod Touch from Apple, download the ZVRS app to call your hearing friends or relatives via ZVRS video relay. Use FaceTime that comes with the iPod Touch to call other iPod Touch and iPhone 4 devices–then you have mobile video!

But does that mean you have to pay a monthly charge for your iPod Touch? The answer is a resounding NO! No monthly charge to do mobile video with the iPod Touch? Yes, that’s right. How come? The iPod Touch works only in a wifi environment. You can find wifi in public places such as McDonalds or Starbucks or in your home if you have a wireless router. Wifi is usually free and that is why you do not need a monthly charge.

When your Blackberry’s 2-year commitment expires, you have a choice of keeping your Blackberry or get a new Blackberry because you still have the iPod Touch for video. If you want to do video in a 3G environment, you can get a new Samsung Epic and you can give your iPod Touch to one of your family members–it is a very useful device with many features and you can play games on the device.

You can start your mobile video experience TODAY with an iPod Touch, without the need to wait for the end of your 2-year commitment for your Blackberry or Sidekick.
