FREE bible on Java mobile phone - Go BibleChristmas promotion is coming! Want to pamper yourself or your love ones with a mobile phone, Pocket PC or iPhone? One factor you might want to consider when buying a gadget is: whether it supports FREE bible software; yes, God's gift - bible - is freely given :)

I have tested a couple of FREE bible software on PDAs. My favourite software are: "Go Bible" and "e-Sword". This article here compares the bible software that run on different types of PDA (Mobile Phone / Pocket PC / iPhone). Note that this is only a guideline; the functionality of the software varies in different models. It is highly recommended that you test it (or do market research) before you purchase the PDA.

The table here indicates whether the FREE bible software (Go Bible or Pocket e-Sword) is supported in different types of PDAs.

My comments:

Mobile Phone

If you ask me to choose only one of the above gadgets, I would prefer mobile phone because I find Pocket PC and iPhone too bulky to put in my pocket. However, as the screen is relatively small, you might find it difficult to read.

Pocket PC

Some of my friends like Pocket PCs; they don't mind it is a little bigger than mobile phone. The plus about Pocket PC is that it supports both Go Bible as well as Pocket e-Sword. On top of that, it allows you to edit Mobile Office documents (i.e. Mobile Word, Mobile Excel) that can be transferred to/from your desktop PC. Do note that the user interface is NOT as good/intuitive as iPhone.


iPhone is the all time favorite if you have budget. But bear in mind that many software requires connection to Internet. Hence, it will be very useful only if you subscribe a data plan to surf Internet. Hence, it is a rich man gadget :) I am NOT ;p If you are VERY rich, buy ALL and give one to me :)

Free free to post your comments to share with us :) Give me a five stars if you feel like it. ;)

I'm really impressed with your writing skills and also with the layout on your blog. Is this a paid theme or did you customize it yourself? Either way keep up the nice quality writing, it is rare to see a great blog like this one these days.
