Why I'm Excited About Next Week's IT Expo

The Only Reason I Have an Android

Ok. In my rush to pack for a trip to Cartagena, Columbia for a wedding I forgot to pack my SIM cutter. That meant the ease of finding a micro SIM for the iPhone and iPad would make it an adventure and given I wanted more rest than work these few days before the upcoming trade show and conference onslaught--three in four weeks in February for me, I decided to leave the i devices in the safe or use them on WiFi.

Instead I used the Smsung Google Nexus that's pentaband and workes very well on Telefonica's Movistar network here. 

Sadly battery life isn't that great. Still I had connectivity. It was cheap I think I paid less than $20.00 for a weeks worth of data access, and when I needed to, I was able to teather to the Nexus.

I guess that's the best reason. Gosh I missed the iPhone.
