eWeek disses WinMo in recent "killer" smartphone list..

Hey, I like the iPhone, G1,  and BBerry (uh, I use one) as much as the next guy, but c’mon! Nathan Eddy at eWeek picks a “killer” list of phones for SMB (small-midsized businesses), and leaves WM out in the cold entirely, which is frankly a little hard to understand.

New Calendar Touch coming from SBSH!

 

I have been sworn to semi-secrecy by the dev and marketing squad at SBSH software about an upcoming release of their new program called Calendar Touch (I was part of the beta), but since they soon will be releasing it, I convinced them to let me leak a little info and a few screenshots...

A Look Back--The November 2001 Issue

 Reported in the Nov 2001 issue, Hal Goldstein and Rich Hall head to New York City to attend PC expo (they had actually attended in June). Hal writes about the Cassiopeia BE-300 being a Palm-Killer, but Rich catches a glimpse of a potential, future iPhone-killer at the show, but can't know what the significance might have been for WM and Palm yet... If we only had a time machine, eh?

Use Teksoft's USBInput with your mouse and keyboard

A distinct advantage that Palm, and Windows Mobile have over other mobile OS flavors (at least for now) is the proliferation of mucho third-party hardware/software that greatly enhance the usability of the device. Some of it is interesting if only for the coolness factor. USBInput is that kind of software, but undoubtedly useful as well.

A Look Back--The Mar 2003 Issue

The newly released $200 Dell Axim X5 was poised to take the PDA world by storm. Orange released the first Windows Mobile powered smartphone; Allen Gall reviewed one of my fav games (Interstellar Flames), and Microsoft Active Sync 3.6 fixed some sync problems. It was a good year for Windows Mobile,

Rich Hall--It's a Dell, Dude!

A Look Back--The 2003 Buyer's Guide

Tech is truly like deja vu all over again... As part of my blog tribute, I'm reading through past copies of our print mag, since it will no longer be in print (you can probably find our final issue at a mag stand near you). Today I was perusing our buyers guide from 2003, and marvelling about the articles on the handheld PC back then (only 5 years ago, but a lifetime in tech). It reminded much of the transition time when the PDA started to give way to phone devices. Now, it's maybe Windows Mobile to something else entirely (G1, iPhone, UMPCs, etc.).

Task2Gather 1.0 Review

The Task2Gather web service is a promising new (and mostly free) site that allows you to do collaborative task management, much like Remember The Milk (see my review here). Unlike RTM, the T2G Windows Mobile client currently has no integration with the built-in WM task app. There were some bumps to get T2G working, like having to re-install the initial download. It is however a powerful alternative for managing team-oriented tasks from your device.

A Look Back--A handy tip from 2005, iPhone predictions from 2007, and a WM pocket recording studio

I'm kind of doing a shotgun approach to this magazine tribute. Which means I go through the issues trolling for choice tidbits and interesting articles and when I happen upon something that catches my eye or the mood strikes me, I add to a post. Revolutionary thinking on my part, I know.

A Final Look Back at Smartphone and PocketPC Magazine...

This month, in our monthly blog topic, we are doing a fairwell tribute to our magazine as it goes to the printer for the final issue. So, I thought it fitting to start with a screenshot of one of my favorite PDAs of all time--the iPAQ 3900. I bought my first copy of this magazine at around the same time I bought my 3955. It still works great, and I sometimes use it when I have to travel to places where I'm afraid my newer devices will get damaged or lost. I would often pack a copy of our magazine to take along as well.

WorldMate Live Review--A pocket travel assistant!

I have previously reviewed Mobimate's Worldmate products, the most recent being the Live product here. This time it's no longer in beta, and I noted several minor screen drawing problems had been cleaned up. I was also able to fully test it in conjuction with planning a real trip, which began by me e-mailing my full itinerary (from our corporate travel service) to WorldMate.

VITO Winterface Review--V1.14

I'll put it this way. If you want to make your Windows Mobile device look and act a little more like the iPhone, then Winterface is for you. It is essentially at it's core, yet another application launcher/manager, whith some messaging and PIM integration. It looks good, and the screen animations were quite snappy on my iPAQ. Make no mistake, I like Winterface but would like to see a few more hooks into the native WM environment.

A First Look at T-Mobile’s New G1 and Android

 The Android OS has been lurking in the shadows for some time, and even after the SDK was released, the project still seemed somewhat a mystery. The lurking will end as soon as T-Mobile starts shipping its new G1.
