On the downside:

-->It could use a longer battery life, it is not bad, but could be better
-->It could be faster
-->The sound level over speakerphone and blue tooth though decent,could be a bit louder.

I have been using it as a daily driver for several weeks and it has performed well.

I was able to do all of my work related things with the phone with few complaints and it has performed solidly overall.

I have used other Windows phones and I would rank it up there with the best of them.

I would definitely recommend the device to anyone who needs a Windows smart phone with a nice design and style.

I appreciated the opportunity to test and review this nice device and overall I liked it.

In comparison to the Lumia devices, this one definitely held its’ own.

I would definitely consider YEZZ and its’ devices for future phone needs.

I found a nice unboxing video on Youtube with regards to the Monaco 47-->

Flash Mob Las Vegas Town Center Best Buddies March 10, 2012

We had the opportunity to attend an event Sponsored by Best Buddies Las Vegas. One of my sons are involved in best Buddies. He is still waiting on a buddy of his own, but has attended and enjoyed a number of events. They held a flash mob at the Town Center in Las Vegas on March 10, 2012. My wife and our 3 autistic kids enjoyed the event. I had fun as well.

Here are 5 youtube videos that I recorded at the event.

A shout out to the best Buddies of Las Vegas.

M-Edge Super Shell for Ipad 2 a product review from Technewszone

I recently had the opportunity to try out M-Edges Super ShellCover for ipad. I was quite impressed by it’s design and durability. It should be a nice product to use for special needs kids who use Ipad’s as well as younger ones too. I let a local preschool borrow it for a day and they really liked its design, construction and ability to protect the Apple Ipad 2 from harm.

OVERVIEW

Look – it’s a bird, it’s a plane, no wait – it’s SuperShell! This kid and family-friendly foam frame for iPad is the perfect addition to the superhero’s utility belt. The SuperShell is made from ultra-protective closed-cell foam that helps absorb shocks if the iPad is dropped. The case wraps around the iPad and provides access to the rear facing camera and speaker, with push buttons for volume and power. The finely dimpled texture and ridges create an easy, handheld grip while the thick, high-impact corners provide maximum protection. Available in superhero colors like Atomic Green, this case will save the day!

M-Edge, a leading edge manufacturer of innovative tablet and smart phone cases, now has a case they say can be said to be kid proof. They can also be used by people that are rough on such products.

I would definitely recommend it anyone who needs to protect their Ipad 2 from harm!!!

Here are some images of the product that I tested–>

A video review from CES from our friends at State of Tech:

I wish that they had one for my HTC View 4g in blue or orange.

It is available on their website at http://www.medgestore.com/products/ipad2-supershell.psp?device=ipad2

If we ever get funded to give away Ipad’s to autistic children and young adults as is our mission and dream, these would be a great addition to include with each one!!!
