Camelback mountain, nearly as big as the tallest mountain in England, sits in the middle of a city in the middle of the desert. How on earth did that get there? Strange but fun. Thoughtfix took advantage of it the other day and put his mobile blogging kit to the test. The result is really good. I should know, I tried a similar thing at -5 degrees with a Kohjinsha SA1.
Blogger’s page worked perfectly, as did YouTube. I wasn’t able to Shozu upload the video as it was 13 megs and Shozu caps off at 10. I copied the video to the N810 and then uploaded it. It went across the Bluetooth link twice. I wish I could have avoided that, but I wasn’t able to use the Bluetooth phone browser as a source on the YouTube upload page. The upload was the longest wait (I didn’t time it) but at that point in the hike I NEEDED the break.
Its an interesting two-device combination. A smartphone and a MID. Both based on ARM architecture. Thoughtfix is planning to use it for reporting on-the-go at CES. Now that could be a lot harder than camelback. Both on the kit and on the legs!
