Wow. SoonR lets you access files on your desktop PC/Mac from your mobile phone. And it is free. That is all.

What, that wasn’t enough for you? I don’t know how amazing this is from a technological point of view, but from a productivity point of view, it is amazing and then some. I’ve been searching for a phone with enough memory to sync all my active client files, but this solves the problem. We may not have much in the way of high-speed 3G here in the U.S., but this is more than enough to get a file every now and then.

Of course, this won’t do you much good unless you have a smart phone, but that’s an upgrade you’ve been needing to make, anyway, right?

    Hey Samuel, thanks for the post about our service. I am one of the founders of SoonR and our PR folks pointed me to your blog. In the SoonR web site you’ll find stories about how people were able to use SoonR to accomplish all kinds of great things.

    I do want to mention that SoonR works on any phone that can access the web through a browser. It doesn’t have to be a smartphone. We have a lot of people using SoonR from their Razrs and other standard phones. In fact we have a lot of people using SoonR on non-3G networks like Edge and even regular old 1x. When we began SoonR way back in the day, we used to demo using a Kyocera phone and sometimes a TMobile Sidekick (the old one). So I can tell you that it’ll work on almost anything!

    Yeah, but you can’t exactly open a Word file on your regular phone. The real usefulness is the ability to get to your files from anywhere.
