The Midwest and Greater Russia: Mobile Equivalents

Just a few short years ago, your humble narrator had never so much as picked up a smartphone, much less owned a device with a data plan - such is the way in the Midwest for many still today, and by the looks of LG's newest announcement of the Optimus P698 handset, it's the same situation over there in Mother Russia.

Today we reconfirm the idea that Google Voice for iPhone is a big deal - then argue about it! Apple told the world they'd be changed forever after today, then the Beatles are released on iTunes!
