Review: Spb Mobile Shell 3.5 for Windows Mobile

One of the premier developers of Windows Mobile software is Spb Software House and over the past couple of years they have created a package that gives device owners complete control over customization of their devices. Today, we see the release of Spb Mobile Shell 3.5 and I have to say Spb Mobile Shell has completely replaced the HTC Touch FLO 3D interface on my T-Mobile Touch Pro2. While TF3D is a nice UI that most people will probably enjoy using, Spb Mobile Shell caters to us "tweakers" who like to fully optimize and customize our devices. This capability is a strength of Windows Mobile and as you can see in my image gallery and in the video walk through.

GNOME can rescue Ubuntu in netbook market

Personally I don't think the user interface is Ubuntu's only problem. I'm far more concerned with making software additions and upgrades easier. But if the UI is the problem it's not one Ubuntu should be expected to solve alone.

Is Wordpress 2.7 a metaphor for enterprise agile?

Over at About UI, a couple of SAPpers make the point:Somehow we need to find the golden path enabling us to rapidly innovate on the UI layer of our software. Shipping these pieces of software around from system to system, from Vendor to Solution Integrator to Customer is key to achieve this flexibility.

Software that can improve the UI on your Windows Mobile device

We all know that the iPhone has an amazing user interface, but it is debatable on whether or not the iPhone meets the essential needs of the business and power user. Many folks in the enterprise have Windows Mobile touch screen devices that have advanced functionality that can do just about anything you want on the go. However, there are times (some may say all the time) when the interface is a bit clunky and requires you to dive too deep into the geeky details. Joel over at Geek.com put together an interesting feature article that looks at different software solutions that can help improve the user experience on your Windows Mobile touch screen device.

Opera Mobile 9.5 to be shown at Mobile World Congress 08

It looks like Mobile World Congress 2008 is shaping up to be quite an event with rumors of Windows Mobile 6.1, demos of S60's touch UI, and lots of software and services. Opera just announced that Opera Mobile 9.5 will be available for trials at MWC 08 in Barcelona. I use Opera 8.5 on the HTC Advantage and it offers a much better browsing experience than Internet Explorer Mobile. Check out the video demo to see the improvements in Opera Mobile 9.5.

E-TEN Glofiish X800 sports a VGA display and HSDPA radio

HTC produces most of the Windows Mobile devices on the market, but there are still a few others like i-mate, Motorola, Samsung, and E-TEN out there that have some very good products. E-TEN just announced the availability of their latest device, the Glofiish X800 that has an impressive list of specifications, including an integrated GPS receiver, HSDPA radio, and VGA display. E-TEN is also known for including lots of great software applications with their devices and the press release states they have also provided a new Today screen UI.

Sim´ Hampel´s IBM eye: Lotus Notes sucks?

So there's this site out there called "LotusNotes sucks".  I'venever linked to it before, I've read it, but it is so hard to get pastthe closed-minded nature of the site's author that the overall messageis lost. My colleage Sim'Hampel recently spent some time dissecting the site in detail, though,and saysSo let's be perfectly clear. I absolutely loveLotus Notes. Now that I've said that, I actually agree with a large part of what LotusNotes Hater has to say. I read through a large number of the bugs and issuesthat he mentions on his site - and largely I agree that they are bad UIdesign, or meaningless errors, or confusing behaviours, and so forth.Sim'evaluates some of what is discussed on the Notes sucks site.  Buthe brings the discussion up a level:Concentrating onthe end-user client niceties from a novice's point of view is not the wholestory, and this is why I still insist that, despite its shortcomings, LotusNotes is still the best choice out there as an enterprise messaging platformand distributed application development platform. Don't underestimate security,reliability, managability, scalability, flexibility, and all the otherbenefits that the platform provides the enterprise. Anybody who has experiencedthis knows that there really isn't anything available that can truely competewith Notes and Domino in this arena. Don't underestimate how much yourusers will complain and be bitter if your messaging platform becomes unreliableand stops them doing their jobs effectively - even with a pretty UI. Itdoesn't matter how nice the UI is if you still can't access your email!Sim'and I have discussed his article, and I think it's worthwhile reading. I don't entirely agree with it... I've watched usability videos ofOutlook users using Notes, Outlook users using Outlook, etc. ... each producthas its plusses and minuses.  I'm not going to turn this into a competitiveposting.  My point is simply, Notes may have its quirks, but so domany many software programs.  Because people "live" in e-mail,they are exposed to more of the e-mail application's quirks than most ofthe other software they use.  Notes 6.x and 7 have made significantimprovements, and from what I've seen out of the labs in the last few weeks,Notes "Hannover" is going to be a major "wow" at Lotusphere2006.

Opera 6.0 for Windows

If you currently use Opera 5.0, version 6.0 is worth the upgrade. It's also worth a spin if you're looking at alternatives to the Microsoft/Netscape duopoly.
