MSFT TechReady [Jul. 31st, 2008|10:37 am]

I'm working the booth at MSFT TechReady and traffic is pretty light. A lot of people want to know how to update their phones to know 6.1. Wish there was a better answer than 'talk to your operator.'

Also, since this is an international audiebce, people want to know how to unlock their phones. Anybody have a favorite unlock site? LMK.

Hi folks,

Any recommendations for an A2DP headset? I'm specifically after something that I can plug my own headphones into.

Thanks

Trying out the new LG KS20 smartphone with Windows Mobile 6.0 [Jul. 24th, 2008|04:20 pm]

The device is flat-out sexy. It is gloss black, including a great screen background. Weighing about 95 grams, it is one of the lightest-weight phones I’ve ever used. There are only two buttons and a joystick on the front of the device, but it has all kinds of buttons around the sides. I’m still occasionally hitting an accidental button when I pick it up, but it is much less frequent than I anticipated. The right side includes a power button, Internet button, and camera button. The left includes volume up and down. The one that surprised me was the bottom edge of the phone. A button there just says “Push.” I did. Imagine my surprise when the battery fell out and the phone went dead. The good thing is that the battery is actually a part of the back cover, so you putting it back together was one smooth operation.

More, including pix if you are interested at http://tinyurl.com/5jgzlr. Let me know if you've got any questions about this device or if you want me to test something particular. I haven't found a 6.1 update for it yet, but I'm hoping to hear from LG about availability soon.

For three years, I've been writing a blog, then a newsletter, and a podcast at MS for internal consumption only on the mobile industry and what is happening. This week I got permission to take it public as a blog. If you are interested, you can find it at http://goingmobile.spaces.live.com/. I'd love to hear your comments and suggestions if you get a chance to stop by. I post a new newsletter every Monday.

If you use any form of Wi-fi network which requires you to log in, you'll probably be aware of the irritating problems with signing into them. My Uni requires me to type in a 9 digit number followed by @students.lincoln.ac.uk and then type my password before I can get anywhere, which is both time consuming and very annoying. I'd wondered about hacking something together to get round it, but never found the time to work out if I actually could. Having recently won a years worth of BTopenzone wi-fi roaming service however, I've found myself logging in more and getting more frustrated, so have looked into it again. Hence finding Devicescape.

Its a free program thing for Mobiles, laptops PDAS etc, which lets you automatically log into wi-fi hotspots (You can also manually confirm), without all the silly typing, you 'just connect'. It has support for Universities, work and roaming netoworks, and you can request sites you'd like added if they're not there. (It can also work on private home networks although I don't know what that adds). I'm going to admit I haven't technically used it yet, only read up, installed and joined, but it looks pretty good so I figured I'd share reguardless. I'll probably make a post some time tomorrow if I've managed to get it working, to say how it works etc.

Still check it out, see what you think. I'm hoping this will actually allow me to easily get online with my pda, without five minutes of annoyed tapping with my stylus...

Cool things to do with an iPaq [Apr. 20th, 2008|06:33 pm]
Windows Mobile Users

madmogs
Ello all,
My iPaq HX4700 went missing for a fortnight lately and since I've found it I've had the urge to do more with it, find it some more cool software or accessories or upgrades or something.

At the moment I use it as an organizer/calendar and also for ebook reading, surfing and puzzles/games.  Things I'm contemplating:

  • RAM upgrade
  • A case that actually holds the extended battery
  • Some notes organiser software (at the moment I'm leaning towards TreNotes)
  • More games, because you can never have too many
So I just wanted to ask y'all -- what do you consider the best software/accessories/whatever for Pocket PC 2003? What are the things you've done to or bought for an iPaq that have really transformed it for you?  All ideas are gratefully received.

Cellphone games playable on Windows Mobile 6? [Apr. 19th, 2008|05:36 pm]

Hi again, everyone. I'm hoping you can help me with another question. :)

I am completely addicted to the game Hexic. I play it online, but I would also love to play it on my Sprint Mogul (PPC-6800). There is a mobile version of this game that I really want, but it seems like it is only compatible with regular cellphones. Is there a chance that it might work on my Mogul, as well, or would there any additional software that I can install on it to make it work?

I know that Astraware has made a Hexic version for Pocket PC, but that's not going to work as I find it too difficult to differentiate between the blue and purple colors that they used.

Thanks for your help!
