"Who's it for?"
Anyone who's either just purchased or is about to purchase a top end phone or smartphone - this isn't supposed to be TV for uber-geeks or programmers, it's more 'all about smartphones for the rest of us'.
"What do I need to play The Phones Show?"
Watch via YouTube on the web via any computer or tablet or smartphone. Or grab the MP4 manually or automatically by RSS/iTunes, to play on a Windows desktop or a Mac or an iPod or a PSP or a smartphone. So that's just about everybody sorted then!
"Shot ON a smartphone? Really?"
Yes, virtually all of The Phones Show is shot (video and stills) on a phone. In previous times, I've used the Nokia N93, N86, Samsung i8910 HD and N8. I now use the Nokia 808 (the Nokia phones have always had by far the best captured audio and video quality). I wanted to demonstrate how powerful some of these modern devices are in terms of multimedia creation. The Show is the proof....
"Your Show has helped me, how can I help you?"
In many ways: by spreading the word to your friends and colleagues; by linking to The Phones Show (use http://stevelitchfield.com/) from your blog or web page; by using the small Google ads on these pages; by buying your must-have devices and accessories through Steve's Amazon Store, and, most of all, by making a small donation to help keep the show going.
Would your company like to get involved and help sponsor a programme of The Phones Show?
