Geekaphone Turns Smartphone Speed Test Into Digital Thunderdome
Geekaphone produces some crazy interesting articles and info graphics on their mobile phone blog. However, their new mobile speed test ups the digital ante for the rest of us.
There are tons of Mobile Speed Test applications, and programs wandering around in the cold bitter wilderness that is the internets, but none are as social as Geekaphones. Seriously. Being able to brag to my friends about something my phone does better than theirs, even if they don't know a kilobyte from an overbite, is priceless.
My iPhone 4 is faster than your Droid Suck. Bottom line I'm getting into Heaven before you.
Seriously though, check it out. The app ranks phones based on region, carrier, upload, download, latency, browser benchmarks, and overall speed. You can even connect to facebook and share your speeds with friends, just so they know how inadequate their handset is to yours. You'll likely start getting more random high fives in the hall way, and whistles shot your way in the street. Who knows even some extra wings in your basket at the local brew pub. Or a free beer. Or lose your virginity.
Right now the MyTouch 4G on T-Mobile is the reigning champion of mobile speed supremacy. Of course this only when the phone is operating within T-Mobile's 4G coverage area.
Be on the look out for a ModMyi mobile speed competition soon. Winner takes all. Or something. We'll fill you in.
