Ontario Agriculture

The network for agriculture in Ontario, Canada

I heard Andrew Campbell speak last night on the benefits of computers and smart phones in agriculture. I know the benefits of the phones along with the fact that I will likely own one in the future. My biggest problem with them is the fact that everyone excepts immediate responses and how addictted you see some people get to them. I also want to know if a smart phone will stand up as well as a normal cell phone because as it stands now if I get two years out of a phone I consider myself doing good. Choosing a cell phone is easy, but which smart phone will fit a farming application better? All thoughts and ideas would be great to hear.

I have a couple of Smart phone converts as friends who farm alot of acres and are out of the office but still have to manage and stay connected....
They are both using Blackberries and are easier to contact because of the email functionality and are able to use the web browsing for info like market prices and maps etc...

Most new cell phones are adding the new functionality to keep up with the iphone and blackberries...

I forgot my Blackberry at home the other day and was missing it to stay connected.
