Mobile software Monday: Handy Tools Pack for S60 devices

I am working on getting Mobile software Monday reviews up and running here again on my ZDNet blog, but there are so many devices coming in that it is tough to find the time to write about all the great software titles. The Nokia E71 (see my full review) is where my AT&T SIM card can be found sharing time with my Palm Treo Pro and I truly enjoy using this mobile device. I was looking for an easy way to switch between applications rather than having to go back to the standby screen or into the main menu area and a few people recommended I check out Handy TaskMan from Paragon Software Group. While looking for this utility, I discovered the Handy Tools Pack for S60 3rd Edition devices that includes 11 titles in one package for US$129.95 (savings of 49% if you bought them all separately).

What are your favorite road warrior tips, tricks, and tools?

I've been working with Andy Abramson for a few years now with the Nokia Nseries Blogger Relations program and enjoy reading his VoIP Watch blog. Since last October Andy has been working primarily on the go as he has some renovations made to his home and since the tagline of this blog is Work Where You Want To Be, then I think the readers here may enjoy a couple of Andy's latest blog posts where he talks about the tools of the road warrior where you may discover some new tools to add to your mobile kit.

Nokia brings "desktop search" to mobile devices

I LOVE desktop search tools like Google Desktop and Windows Desktop Search and remember talking with Microsoft about bringing this search functionality to mobile devices. Microsoft has a integrated search tool in Windows Mobile devices, but it has never been a very strong utility. I just read the Nokia press release announcing the release of Nokia Mobile Search that brings powerful search functionality from the desktop to the device. Nokia Mobile Search allows you to search emails, text messages, calendar entries, videos, music files, and more. Nokia Mobile Search indexes your compatible device for faster search results. I could not find any information on whether external storage flash cards or hard drives, like the 4 and 8 GB drives on N91 devices, are indexed. I would think this is where the real power of device search would be as storage cards get larger and larger in capacity with more and more files being stored on them.

Forthcoming Nokia tool will be a barrier to mobile VoIP

Those of us who are opposed to mobile carriers putting up barriers to VoIP calling can't be thrilled by Nokia's upgrade to its Nokia Flexi Intelligent Service Node (touted in the excerpt from a Flash demo, shown at top).The Node tool, which is available to carriers, is set to offer a particularly insidious software add-on known as the Nokia Peer-to-Peer Traffic Control Solution.

Sun releases beta of Java 2 Micro Edition

Sun Microsystems released a test version of developer tools Wednesday to help programmers write Java software that works on small gadgets such as cell phones, the Santa Clara, Calif.-based server seller said. The product will be integrated into developer tools supplied by Nokia, Siemens, Sony Ericsson and Sprint--some of the top advocates of Java 2 Micro Edition, which lets Java programs run on cell phones, dashboard computers, set-top boxes and other devices. The tools let a programmer simulate a gadget on a more powerful computer, Sun said. In addition, Sun announced a test version of its Forte tools for Sun One, letting people write software that supports emerging Web services standards, including SOAP, WSDL and UDDI. --Stephen Shankland, Special to ZDNet New
