Finding the Right Smart Phone – Your Choice – January 9, 2014

Our topic for January smartphoneswill be “Finding the Right Smart Phone – Your Choice”, and will be presented by Cheryl Lockwood.  Cheryl has an IT background, is a new PC3 member since November and works for Best Buy in the Smart Phone Department at Hwy 51 and Independence Blvd in Matthews. She is a long time user of Smart Phones and has been with Best Buy for several months. Cheryl will give us a thorough review of the current phone market as she sees it and highlight the latest models from the Big four providers. She will explore the issues involved in helping new buyers find the right smart phone for their particular needs and how to get the best deal possible. She’ll also answer questions on this topic in general and about where to find the best buys in the Charlotte area.

Whether you’re a first time buyer or an experienced user looking to upgrade, don’t miss this opportunity to get an insightful review of this complex issue at our meeting on January 9th.


Please join us. The Personal Computer Club of Charlotte [PC3] meets the second Thursday of each month (next meeting Thursday, October 10th) in the Pritchard Bldg. at Pritchard Memorial Baptist Church, 1117 South Blvd in Charlotte. We will return to the Main Fellowship hall this month. The meeting gets under way promptly at 7:00pm. We generally start with a brief review of current PC issues in the news. Following that we have a presentation on a topic of interest to PC or Smart Phone users and wrap up by 9:00pm. Initial attendance at the meeting is free and open to the public.

In addition to our General Meeting at 7:00PM we get together for dinner at 5:45pm. We generally hold our “Eating before the Meeting” at the church. Six or seven folks showed up at previous meetings, had supper and talked tech until it was time to start the General Meeting. The club will provide iced tea and cookies for desert. Anything else, pizza, burger, sandwich will have to be brought in by the participants. We suggest that everyone interested stop on their way to the meeting to buy themselves diner at the Sandwich Shop, Fuel Pizza, McDonalds, etc. and bring it with them to the church.
