From the News Wire: Misc iPhone and Mobile News

News bits of note around the web:

Diabetes Health has an interesting article by Matthew Tendler on Diabetes and iPhone. The iPhone buzz is very huge in diabetes land. IMHO the key isn’t the phone part it is the fact that the thing has enough computing power and useable enough interface in a small package to do good stuff. The fact that it's a phone means folks are likely to tote that power around.

Matt’s Gluco Buddy getting in with Accu-Chek is the topic of another articles here:

Finally Mobihealthnews has a detailed article on Qualcom pulling out of the Mobil health business. Do ya think all the buzz on the iPhone has anything to do with that?
