For those who don’t have time to keep up to date on the Brighthand Forums, here are some of the threads that have attracted the most attention over the last month.
These have been split into two categories: On Topic and Off Topic. The On Topic posts will, of course, deal with smartphones and handhelds in some way, while the Off Topic ones will come from Brighthand‘s very active forum of that name.
Note: This does not include news articles, editorials, or reviews written by the Brighthand staff.
Finger Painter Contest Giveaway – A contest held by the developer of the Palm OS application Finger Painter generated a tremendous amount of attention and nearly 200 comments.

Disaster Strikes BH Member – In early April, long time (and mis-named) Brighthand forum member minimalposter lost virtually everything he owned in an apartment fire. There were over 300 responses in the resulting discussion as other members talked about ways they could help out.
