Which device to buy? Make apps your priority

SAN FRANCISCO — If you’re going to buy a new smart phone, think apps first, said Max Pigman, vice president of and Top Producer Systems.

"It’s not about the device — it’s about the applications," said Pigman, who spoke Monday during the one-day Inman News Agent Reboot conference, which highlights business development, technology and marketing tools and strategies for agents.

Pigman owns a Droid phone — which uses Google’s Android mobile operating system — and he also owns an iPhone.

He said he recommends the just-released Apple iPhone 4, the soon-to-be-released Droid X, and the Droid Incredible.
