Finally, a phone-sized phone!

Sierra Wireless, for whom I've done a fair bit of technical writing work over the past few years, has just announced the Voq phone, a smartphone that uses the GSM digital cellular phone network and Microsoft's smartphone operating system.

(I didn't know anything about this phone before it was announced. I haven't done work for Sierra in some months, and if I had been there and known about it, I couldn't have told you anyway.)

Finally, though, someone has made a phone with a thumb-keyboard in it that isn't a massive monster—because the keyboard flips out and folds up. The phone is actually the size a phone should be.

No pricing yet, and the phone won't be out till early next year, but it looks promising.
