My favorite smartphone on Verizon Wireless for 2009 is...

My favorite smartphone on Verizon Wireless is currently the HTC Droid Eris running Google Android. I realize that we don't have many medical apps for Android right now, but this will change in 2010. We'll see many medical apps released in 2010 and some of those on the top of list are:
  • Epocrates
  • MobilePDR
  • Tarascon
Skyscape and Unbound Medicine already have Android apps. This means that free apps like Mobile MerckMedicus are already available for Android. QuantiaMD is another great free medical app for Android. I'll be writing some reviews about QuantiaMD over the next few weeks as I test this app on an HTC Droid Eris.

Android is going to gain tremendous momentum in 2010 as new phones emerge on virtually every wireless carrier in the United States. This means that you won't need to switch carriers to have an Android smartphone. Unless Apple moves quickly to place its iPhone on other carriers like Verizon and T-Mobile, it will quickly lose health care professionals to Android. I also predict that many Windows Mobile, BlackBerry, and Palm OS users will switch to Android as they recognize all the benefits associated with this great OS.
