Courier was designed for me; and I didn't believe in it

Knowing what Microsoft cares about, I worked out what had killed Courier a few months ago and I was fascinated to see it confirmed by Cnet's story about the secret history of the project.Chatting about a (completely different, non-Microsoft) single-purpose business tablet device, one of the developers bemoaned the way users of their prototype loved the way it did the one thing it did so well - and then asked if they could read their email on it.

PlayBook for business: show me the money

RIM showed off what consumers see as the missing pieces for the PlayBook at its BlackBerry World conference today; email that's not in a Web page or coming over Bridge from a BlackBerry and BlackBerry apps (and indeed Android apps) running on the tablet. Both of those run in what RIM calls 'players' - Java environments that run on QNX - and they're both still under development; the Android player doesn't support multi-tasking yet although that's the aim.

Is Google the Walmart of the tech industry?

Yesterday was my first day writing for the Googling Google blog. Nothing fancy, just a "Hi there" and a Microsoft vs. Google piece. And next thing I know, I have an email from my mom saying, "You certainly received some negative feedback on the proxy post..."

Sling Media taking a wait and see approach to the Palm WebOS

I've been using a Slingbox and the SlingPlayer Mobile clients for years, but last year I moved to the Hava player because they have free Nokia Internet Tablet and S60 clients. Slingbox now has a SlingPlayer Mobile client for selected S60 devices, but it does not work on the very popular Nokia E71. Dave Zatz sent me an email notice about a new post he wrote on the apparent hesitancy of Sling Media to develop a SlingPlayer Mobile client for the upcoming Palm WebOS while they look to focus on the Google Android platform next.

Getting ready for Windows 7 beta 1 - FAQ

I know that some of you are sick of hearing about Windows 7 already, but given the amount of email I've received with regards to the public beta being made available on Friday, you have a lot of questions about how you should prepare for testing. Here's a quick FAQ based on the feedback I've received so far:

Nokia Email service drastically improves the email experience on S60 devices

The Nokia S60 Nseries and Eseries devices are incredible mobile devices, but the email client is very basic and has a rather plain look and feel to it (aka BlackBerry look). The default Messaging client does a poor job with hyperlinks, doesn't display my messages forwarded from other services, and IMHO is just barely acceptable for usage. Nokia has been beta testing a new service, Nokia Email, and I have had the opportunity to check it out on the N95 and E71 for a few weeks. It was in a limited beta before, but starting tomorrow anyone who wants to try it will be able download the client from the Nokia Beta Labs site and signup for the service at the Nokia Email service site. During this beta period, the service is free so give it a try and provide feedback to make it better.

MobileTechRoundup show #113, AT&T Tilt, HP 2710p, and Plantronics 480

I am on the road in D.C. and tried out the Plantronics .audio 480 Virtual Phone Booth to connect with James and Kevin for MobileTechRoundup show #113. It is a very portable solution for Skype and is much easier than packing around the Plantronics DSP-500 I usually record with. We talked a bit about the AT&T Tilt, Nokia N95-3, and a way to turn your camera phone into a webcam. James spent the money on an HP 2710p Tablet PC and is extremely happy with the device. Kevin read an email from Aaron and we each offered our opinion on a 3G iPhone. Earthcomber for S60 was also mentioned as a free download.

MobileTechRoundup show #105: What hosts now have iPhones?

Readers here know that I went back to an Apple iPhone and if you listen to MobileTechRoundup show #105 then you will hear if any other hosts on the show were swayed by the beautiful device. There were a couple of birthday notes on the show, including the ThinkPad computers. A new browser was released for the Nokia N800 and with the recent Skype update this Internet Tablet is getting more and more capable. A couple new devices are coming soon, including the HTC Kaiser and BlackBerry 8820 that includes WiFi and UMA support. A listener submitted a great email and if you are looking for a great deal on a wireless data plan I highly encourage you to listen to what Jeff had to write in to us.

Happy 10th anniversary, Ilium Software

I have been using mobile devices now for just over 10 years, which seems like quite a long time. I was a bit surprised and very happy to recieve an email from Julie stating that Ilium Software is also celebrating their 10th anniversary in the mobile device arena as mobile software developers. To mark the occasion they are having daily specials for everyone to enjoy with the first special being free products, including the excellent InScribe keyboard for Tablet PCs and UMPCs. I personally use their excellent Screen Capture utility to take review photos on my Windows Mobile devices.
