Windows Mobile magazine ends, but iPhone Life launches on September 9th

While I get the majority of my news and content online, I still do
subscribe to a few magazines including MacWorld, Laptop, and Smartphone
& Pocket PC Magazine. I am very saddened by the news that there
will be one final issue of Smartphone & Pocket PC Magazine.
As you can read in the press release they are working to make the final
issue a “keeper” with lots of Windows Mobile reviews, new tips and
how-tos, a guide to best accessories, software, and much more. The
final issue will be on newstands in November.

I started reading this magazine many years ago and looked forward to
reading each issue. I found the reviews to be very informative and the
magazine served as a great reference resource. They also ran the Best
Software Awards and I was honored to participate the last several years
as a member of the Board of Experts in judging software. Hal presents
the reasons for having to suspend the magazine and I wish him all the

The good news is that Hal will be launching iPhone Life
on September 9th and it will be a whopping 100-page premier issue. Many
of the same folks who wrote for Smartphone & Pocket PC Magazine
will be coming over too. You can subscribe now
for just US$25 to receive all issues through 2010 which includes the
premier issue and at least 4 issues in both 2009 and 2010, plus a
digital edition readable on the iPhone. I already subscribed and highly
encourage my readers to as well. I can’t wait to check out the first
issue and hope this magazine does as well as the iPhone. You will also
find it on newstands everywhere if you don’t want to subscribe.
