Internet Radio is one of the things that I like most about the Internet. Having moved around a lot, it’s nice to be able to continue listening to the radio stations that I’ve become accustomed to. Finding an Internet Radio application for Windows Mobile that is worth the cost isn’t the easiest task. SPB Software came out with their Internet Radio App (SPB Radio) late last month to good reviews.
Resco, makers of Resco Explorer and Resco Contact Manager also released an update to their Internet Radio app last month. Resco Pocket Radio offers some similar functionality to SPB Radio, but also offers some variations on the feature set. The complete rundown is after the break.
Though deviating from HTC's idea of the Diamond 2, Verizon sure has an idea of what its will look like (dubbed "Whitestone"), and it is basically the Touch Pro 2 sans keyboard, which many have been clamoring for. (Others have rightfully noted that's basically the Touch HD.)
Some things to note are the inclusion of the unique "kickstand" and the stylus, which we're surprised is still there. Also is the dedicated "multimedia" button, which along with said kickstand is making this device very media-centric. And why not with that huge 3.6-inch screen and 5MP camera? Seems spot on. Oh, and how about that 3.5mm jack?
For better or for worse (or own Nokia Experts likely will be less than enthused), Microsoft and Nokia announced today that MSFT's Office Mobile suite is headed to the world's favorite Finnish smartphone maker and the Symbian platform.
Because we love bullet points, here's what's coming, in bullet points:
The ability to view, edit, create and share Office documents on more devices in more places with mobile-optimized versions of Microsoft Word, Microsoft PowerPoint, Microsoft Excel and Microsoft OneNote.
Enterprise instant messaging and presence, and optimized conferencing and collaboration experience with Microsoft Office Communicator Mobile
Mobile access to intranet and extranet portals built on Microsoft SharePoint Server.
Enterprise device management with Microsoft System Center.
Today's the day, folks. It's finally here. The first Touch Pro 2 has been released on a U.S. carrier (it's in stores, and you can find it online), and the fine folks at T-Mobile have the honors. Of course, T-Mo also has the dubious distinction of having a TP2 without a3.5mm headphone jack, and we now know that the official price is $349 after a two-year contract. But them's the breaks.
And so, the HTC rumor merry-go-round continues. We've already brought you what we believe to be the specs for the HTC Leo, aka the Athena 2. Now, here's a photo to go with it.
A refresher on the specs:
8MP Camera--NEW (up from 5MP?)
The general consensus remains that the Leo will be more of a Mobile Internet Device than a phone, even a slider phone, so it's possible there's a keyboard hidden in there somewhere. It's also possible that we're looking at somebody's Photoshop hopes and dreams, so let's just take all this with a big grain of salt.
Well, it's Tuesday, and you know what that means: Time for more Touch Pro 2 pictures! These are of the Verizon variety and go up against the Sprint Touch Pro. And ppcgeeks poster MrDerrickson even gives us one of the system specs. Peep them, and more shots of the phone itself, after the break.
Dear, Microsoft and hardware manufacturers: Please make the Windows Mobile 7 experience this good. We mean it. This is spot-on. And at $220 for a 16GB version and $290 for 32GB, you can't beat the price. Nailed it.
Here's a forum post from WMExperts reader Blinocac200sx, who has a problem with his Exchange account.
How do I change my exchange account. It's currently set for a place I no longer work for, and now I want to use it at my current job. I can change the server, but it doesn't want to let me change the domain or user name.
The answer's easy enough, if you know where to look. (Yeah, welcome to Windows Mobile.)
If you have any experience with Nite Ize, no doubt you’ve seen their rugged, blue collar cases. Although they’ve dabbled in more traditional leather pouches and such, a Nite Ize case is typically characterized by tough rip-stop nylon and a belt clip that is practically indestructible. The Nite Ize Cargo Clip case is another addition to their line of rugged cases.
A two-year contract will get you the Touch Pro 2 for $349.99. A one-year contract takes it to $399, and the TP2 will sell at retail for $549. But as we've said before, you need to factor in the price of the voice and data plans when figuring the overall cost.
That said, it sounds like a good many of you are willing to drop that much, if not more, for one of the most anticipated phones so far this year. What say you?
So here's what we're gonna do: We're not going to sleep until all four major U.S. carriers release the bloody things. We've pulled out the emergency take-out menu repository, stocked up on Red Bull and are duct-taping ourselves to the office chairs. Settle in, boys and girls. It's gonna be a long month.
