Twitter client Twikini updated to 1.2

Twitter client Twikini V 1.2 has been released. While it's not the cheapest (read: free) client out there, it is one of our favorites. Here's what's new in 1.2:

  • When you click a Twitpic link, a large version of the photo is shown inside Twikini. No more having to launch a browser.
  • You can choose to launch links in Skweezer.
  • Twikini can show @replies and DMs by default at startup. Similarly, you can choose to only auto-refresh @'s and DM's.
  • Nu på dansk!
  • If you scroll to the end of the time line, Twikini will "wrap" back to the top. (Careful: If you're at the top of the time line and hit "up," it'll take you to the bottom of the time line.)
  • After replying to a tweet, the time line won't jump back to the top.
  • Improved GPS codes and several other bug fixes.

You can install this version right over your old one, but you'll have to re-input your accounts. Twikini is $4.95 and has a 14-day trial. You can find it here.

Introducing the T-Mobile Touch Pro 2

Introducing the T-Mobile Touch Pro 2

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 a 3.5mm headphone jack, and we now know that the official price is $349 after a two-year contract. But them's the breaks.

Reviews are in from the usual suspects (Nokia Experts and ZDNet regular Matt Miller; Engadget; Gizmodo). But we're gonna be in the trenches with you folks today to see what the fuss is all about. And we're going to do it together. So as you pick up a T-Mo Touch Pro 2 today and in the coming days, send pics of your plunder to phil.nickinson at wmexperts dot com, and we'll post up them for all to see.

See ya in the store!

Now the T-Mobile Touch Pro 2 is $279? (Late-nite update: Not so much)

16

We'll make you a deal: This will be our last post on the T-Mobile Touch Pro 2 and its on-contract price before the thing actually launches tomorrow. In exchange, you'll bear with us as we again scratch our heads at another leaked pricing strategy. This one, again courtesy of TmoNews, has the TP2 at $279 with a two-year contract, and $329 with a one-year deal.

So, we'll find out for real in a few hours. That work for you guys?

Update: Nope, it's $349. Sorry, folks.

Possble HTC Leo rendering

Possble HTC Leo rendering

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:

  • Manilla 2.5
  • WVGA/16:9 Screen/4.3"
  • Snapdragon/1GHz
  • 8MP Camera--NEW (up from 5MP?)
  • WM6.5
  • 320mb/512mb RAM/ROM

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.

From the forums: Exchange connections, sending contacts, over-the-air updates

0

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.)

What else is going on in the forums? Simbadogg asks about over-the-air updates with Windows Mobile 6.5. The Celio REDFLY developer's forum is jumping. And Glidersgalore needs some help sending a contact by e-mail. Join the conversations!

Review: Nite Ize Cargo Clip Case

Review: Nite Ize Cargo Clip Case

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.

T-Mobile Touch Pro 2 to be $349.99 with 2-year contract; $549 retail

31

With the T-Mobile Touch Pro 2 set for release on Wednesday, pricing was still a bit up in the air. But TmoNews has tracked down some confirmation, and it's as we feared — this is gonna be pricey.

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?

Yes, that's the AT&T Touch Pro 2

Yes, that's the AT&T Touch Pro 2

That's it, we give up. Here's the HTC Touch Pro 2 with AT&T branding, courtesy of Engadget, in case you hadn't had enough TP2 news this week, what with learning the Verizon and Sprint versions will have 3.5mm headphone jacks and whatnot. (And start your guessin' as to the "Tilt 2" will have the headphone jack.)

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.

Do you think the AT&T Tilt 2 will have a 3.5mm headphone jack?(polls)

Wireless data number crunching

Wireless data number crunching

 

GigaOM Pro Analyst Network has compiled, crunched, compared, and slide-showed wireless data stats for the second quarter of 2009. The numbers seem to indicate that the demand for wireless data continues to grow despite the national economic picture.

The highlights of the report are as follows:

  • U.S. wireless data service revenue grew 7% during the second quarter to $10.6 billion (with a "B"). This represents a 30% gain compared to the second quarter of 2008.
  • Verizon and AT&T represented the largest gains with both seeing an 8% increase.
  • The U.S. is now the largest mobile data market in the world passing Japan and China.

Broken down by service provider, Verizon is tops with regards to the total number of subscribers with 87.7 million followed closely by AT&T with 79.6 million.  Sprint was a distant third with 49.7 million subscribers.  Combined, AT&T and Verizon account for 69% of the data market and 61% of the wireless subscriber base.  Sprint, T-Mobile, AT&T and Verizon each saw an increase in Pre-Paid subscribers

GigaOM Pro offers a full review of the second quarter numbers here (subscription required) or you can follow the break to catch the slide show highlights.

Sprint Touch Pro 2 also has 3.5mm jack!

21

No sooner do Malatesta and yours truly mull over whether the Sprint Touch Pro 2 will have a 3.5mm headphone jack in the upcoming podcast (look for it Monday) does Engadget give us the answer (as well as the best pics we've seen so far).

So, to recap, the Sprint, Verizon and Telus versions have it. T-Mobile doesn't. And while we're early into the leak cycle of the AT&T Tilt 2, we're gonna go out on a limb here and say odds are looking pretty good.
