My very first Bluetooth GPS receiver came from Pharos and that baby performed like no other I have seen since then. I could throw the little "hockey puck" GPS receiver in the back seat and it would still get a solid strong signal served up to my laptops and PDAs. Pharos has been making a line of Pocket PC and now Windows Mobile devices with a GPS focus for a few years and I have tried a couple of them without being that impressed. I was just sent their latest device, the Pharos Traveler 137, to check out for a bit and was very interested in it because it is the first Windows Mobile-based device that supports T-Mobile's unique 1700 MHz 3.5G data network. After spending a few days with the device, I think it is one of the best Pharos models made and may be compelling for T-Mobile customers looking for a WM device.

I am a big fan of Bluetooth technology and am actually using a Think Outside Bluetooth keyboard to type this article on my new Fujitsu U810 Tablet PC. Blair sent me some big news from the Bluetooth SIG announcing that they are developing a new radio substitution method that will allow devices with both Bluetooth and WiFi radios to access and use both those radios for much faster data transfer rates. The new architecture is called Alternate MAC/PHY and the core specs for it are expected to be published in mid-2009.
With Bluetooth now a common feature on nearly all new mobile devices, there needs to be greater awareness from users about security problems and vulnerabilities associated with the function, according to industry figures.
I try to post as many entries here as I can on how you can work where you want to be and be productive on the go. One way to accomplish work on the go is by having a portable PC with you and one of the latest cool devices that actually has my interest as a possible future purchase is the Raon Everun ultra portable PC. This very small Windows XP PC boast a very long battery life of 7+ hours, has Bluetooth and WiFi radios, and has a unique QWERTY keyboard. Chippy was lucky enough to get one in his hands and posted a two-part video preview on UMPCPortal.com.

T-Mobile announced the release of a Windows Mobile 6 Professional (aka Pocket PC Phone Edition) device called the T-Mobile Wing. This device was revealed just a couple of weeks ago by the FCC and it didn't take long for T-Mobile to get it out. The press release and device specifics haven't even been posted on T-Mobile's site yet, but a couple of fellow mobile enthusiasts have full reviews that you should check out for more information. Mobility Site and Mobile Tech Review take the Wing for a spin and for the most part are pleased with the device. It lacks 3G since T-Mobile is the only major U.S. carrier without this service so that is one area of concern. It does have WiFi and Bluetooth, but also uses the 200 MHz processor like that used in the current T-Mobile MDA. This is fine for Smartphones, but a Professional device really should have 300 MHz or more under the hood. That said, I have some gadget cash saved up and may be adding the T-Mobile Wing to my collection soon.
The Vulcan FlipStart ultramobile PC is one of a few devices, like the DualCor CPC, that were announced a couple of years ago and then became vaporware that only had occasional rumors bringing it back to life. According to a Crave article it appears that the FlipStart is actually going to be released soon. The Vulcan FlipStart E-1001S is a full Windows XP PC similar to the Sony UX series, but with a flip-open display revealing a keyboard rather than a slide-up display. Rumored specs have the device sporting a Pentium M CPU, 30GB hard drive, 512MB RAM, 5.6 inch 1024x600 display, and EV-DO WWAN support. For the US$1,999 price it better also have integrated WiFi and Bluetooth.

HP has had Pocket PC Phone Edition Mobile Messenger devices for a couple of years, but they have never really seemed to have taken off. HP continues to try to compete in the mobile market and is launching their HP iPAQ 500 series Voice Messenger. The Voice Messenger is a Windows Mobile 6 Standard device (aka Smartphone) and looks to also have a 1.3 megapixel camera. The HP Voice Messenger is capitalizing on the increasing popularity of VoIP and includes capabilities and integrated WiFi for this functionality. HP is also including a powerful voice command system that actually allows you to reply to email by dictating and sending a voice response without the need for any typing. GSM/EDGE and Bluetooth radios are also included on the device. The new HP Voice Messenger should be available this Spring, but you can check out our image gallery in the meantime.
Although it includes a phone, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, the iPAQ rw6815's phone lacks 3G, the Wi-Fi is only 802.11b standard and Bluetooth is the 1.2 version. If you can live with this functionality, this is a neat enough Windows Mobile device.
Mark/Space released a major update to The Missing Sync for Windows Mobile that provides syncing functionality above and beyond what ActiveSync provides for users on a Windows PC.
