Coolsmartphone was originally founded by Leigh Geary in 2003 as a place to share Microsoft Smartphone (specifically, the Orange SPV of the time) tips and tricks. Over time, it grew to share smartphone news and garnered attention from other big sites and even Microsoft themselves, resulting in Leigh becoming an MVP in Windows Mobile and meeting a load of great tech people along the way, including Paul O'Brien (the founder of MoDaCo).
Initially we covered just Microsoft Smartphone – that’s the non-touch screen device. Then we moved onto Pocket PC and Windows Mobile. It was only fairly recently, at the beginning of 2011, that we really started adding more talented writers, bloggers and tech fans to the site. It’s their continued and unrelenting dedication to hunting down the latest gossip, reviewing the latest kit and news that keeps this place growing. So settle down, grab a cuppa and have a read.
