Microsoft is going public with new hardware certification requirements for Windows 8.1 (and beyond) devices, some of which take effect in 2014 and 2015.
There are a ton of great functions in Windows Phone Mango and after spending a few days connected via Bluetooth I am sold on the hands-free voice recognition technology.
The Bluetooth stack vulnerability introduces remote code execution risks on Windows Vista and Windows 7.
According to a listing on the Bluetooth Special Interest Group's (SIG) website the LG C900 - thought to be one of the first Windows Phone 7 handsets due to hit the shelves — will be available from 'around' 28 September.Until now Microsoft has reiterated its 'holiday 2010' release window for the first Windows Phone 7 devices, but the listing on the Bluetooth SIG indicate the LG C900's release as planned for sometime around the 28 September.
I got a good illustration yesterday of how easy things can be on Linux, especially compared with kicking a dead whale down the beach (using Windows). I was working away from my desk, and needed to print something.
I spend most of my time using my Windows Mobile and Nokia devices, depending on my needs at the time. However, I keep getting drawn back to using my iPhone due to the incredible quality, functionality, and low prices of the games. The latest game from Electronic Arts that appeals to me is Rock Band (iTunes link). This game is priced at $9.99 and has four different ways to play, including multiplayer via a Bluetooth connection.
At Microsoft's Silicon Valley Campus, ZDNet's Sumi Das talks to Microsoft's chief environmental strategist, Rob Bernard, about power-saving features in the new Windows 7 operating system. Bernard says Microsoft made energy efficiency a core design element, with better battery optimization, and Bluetooth and DVD features that won't be activated until necessary.
The handset manufacturer HTC has issued a fix for the vulnerable Bluetooth driver in some of its Windows Mobile phones.Earlier this week it emerged that the driver contained a flaw that could allow an attacker to target handsets with their Bluetooth turned on and Bluetooth file-sharing enabled.
Report says Bluetooth driver in the manufacturer's Windows Mobile devices could expose user contact details and other data, but HTC has not confirmed flaw.
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 owned a couple UMPC devices in the past (Samsung Q1 and Fujitsu U810), but then decided to stick with a MSI Wind netbook for my mobile computing needs. James has me actually considering a new slate ultra-portable computer though with his extensive posts on the upcoming Viliv S5 device. This computer is quite compact and has some great specs such as the 1.33 GHz Intel Atom processor, 1GB RAM, 60GB hard drive, 4.8 inch 1024x600 resolution touch screen display, WiFi, Bluetooth, integrated GPS receiver, and Windows XP.
Readers have asked me about the capability of tethering your devices to laptops and other devices and I decided to post a review of a very useful utility that lets you turn your Windows Mobile device into a WiFi hotspot. Of all the mobile operating systems around, I think Windows Mobile is the easiest to use as a wired or wireless modem for your laptop and other devices. Windows Mobile 6.1 includes the Internet Sharing utility that lets you connect via cable or Bluetooth to your laptop. However, with the use of Bluetooth PAN and USB it isn't that simple to connect things like the iPod touch or Nokia N810. WMWiFiRouter lets you turn your Windows Mobile device into a wireless hotspot that makes connecting virtually any device quick and easy.
The rumors that T-Mobile may launch a Google Android device in September seem more and more plausible now with the details that Engadget found in the latest FCC documents (PDF files). This FCC approval is for the rumored HTC Dream device. The operating system is not mentioned in the FCC documents so it is possible this device could be a Windows Mobile device too. Either way, it looks like this may be T-Mobile USA's first high end device that supports their 1700 MHz 3G network. The FCC documents reveal it has WiFi, Bluetooth, and T-Mobile 3G support.
Microsoft has re-released its critical MS08-030 bulletin for Windows XP SP2 and SP3 users, warning that "two separate human issues" caused a major hiccup with the critical security patch.The original version of the patch, which corrects a remote code execution flaw in the Windows Bluetooth stack, failed to properly fix the vulnerability for Windows XP users, according to Christopher Budd, a program manager in the MSRC (Microsoft Security Response Center).
Patch Tuesday's release included a critical fix affecting all Windows Vista and XP systems, which could allow attackers to wirelessly steal confidential information from laptops by exploiting a flaw in the Bluetooth stack
Microsoft's June Patch Tuesday release included a critical fix affecting all Windows Vista and XP systems, which could allow attackers to wirelessly steal confidential information from laptops by exploiting a flaw in the Bluetooth stack.
Microsoft's Patch Tuesday train rumbled into the security station today with high-priority patches for multiple vulnerabilities affecting Internet Explorer, the Bluetooth stack in Windows and Microsoft DirectX.In all, the Redmond, Wash.
Microsoft on Thursday previewed three critical security bulletins addressing Internet Explorer, Bluetooth and DirectX in various flavors of Windows, including Vista.In its advance notification, Microsoft issued three critical bulletins for items to be patched June 10.
My absolute favorite Windows Mobile device over the last few years has been the HTC Advantage and my review on the device continues to be one of the most viewed posts on this blog. I was pleased to hear that HTC just announced an updated version of the device, also called the HTC Advantage (now this will cause some confusion), that sports a new HTC Home Today screen, future version of Windows Mobile (let's make the obvious guess that it will be 6.1 shall we?) HTC TouchFLO support Opera Mobile 9.x (announcement made last week), 16GB of internal storage (Flash this time!), new and improved keyboard, and updated VueFLO that recognizes device orientation and flips the screen to match. The updated model still includes Marvell PXA270 624MHz and Qualcomm MSM 6275 processors, 256MB ROM, 128MB RAM, tri-band HSDPA, WiFi, Bluetooth 2.0, GPS, 5-inch VGA, and 3 megapixel camera. The battery has slightly less capacity (2100 mAh vs. the 2200 mAh of today's model, but with the flash drive instead of a spinning hard drive I doubt there will be any difference (and maybe even better life) in this new model.
The ASUS P750 may be chunky, but it packs in a huge array of features. Combined with an equally impressive software bundle, the result is an excellent multifunction handheld that should appeal to a wide range of mobile professionals.
