Building Apps is Wrong!

Software application development has been going on for decades. In the old world of software, applications took a (usually accounting) business event and then validated, stored and reported it. These were internal usage utilities that dealt with internal data. That's the wrong perspective to have today. Businesses don't want apps - they need 'capabilities'. Moreover, they need capabilities that serve different kinds of information to different kinds of smart devices to mobile, interconnected workers.

Hands-on with Windows Mobile 6.5.3 on the Pharos Traveler 137

Back in early October we saw the release of Windows Mobile 6.5 and as you can see in my post I was rather disappointed with the release for several reasons. I had limited expectations since we all knew it was a minor point release, but I found it to have even less than what I had hoped for. As pointed out in my blog post I found that lack of customization on the Start page and Today screen and the requirement for a stylus in many utilities and menus, including simply creating a new appointment, to be the worst areas that should have been addressed in the update. Microsoft recently released Windows Mobile 6.5.3 to manufacturers and the fine folks at Pharos sent along a Pharos Traveler 137 (see my thoughts on 6.5 on the Traveler 137) loaded up with Windows Mobile 6.5.3. I captured the updated operating system in the video below.

Review: Electric Pocket's PhoneFace, Ringo, & FlipSide for BlackBerry devices

It took me several years before I finally decided to add a BlackBerry device to my permanent mobile arsenal and my fairly recent T-Mobile Sunset-colored Curve has been performing pretty well. I never thought too much about 3rd party application support for the BlackBerry, but I am finding there are actually lots of cool applications and utilities to let you do even more with the device. Three of the latest applications from Electric Pocket that I have had a few weeks to play with are Ringo, PhoneFace Speed Dialer, and Flipside.

The next WinMo Palm Treo may be the first with 320x320 and integrated WiFi

Palm has done a lot to improve the Windows Mobile experience on Treo devices with the Today screen plug-ins, threaded SMS, and other handy utilities and functionality. That said, I tried to like the Treo 750 series and use it as my Windows Mobile device, but the lame 320x240 display always limited what I could do on the device. According to rumored information over at PalmInfocenter it looks like the first Windows Mobile 320x320 display Treo may be coming to Sprint in July as the Treo 800w.

The REDFLY gives me back the utility of a Handheld PC, but with the latest OS

So I was using the REDFLY Windows Mobile Smartphone Companion a bit more with the HTC Advantage and a thought came to me that the REDFLY solves the problem I had with the Windows CE Handheld PCs of the old days. I was a big fan of the Handheld PCs, like the Jornada 680, because they gave me a large keyboard and display to write, surf, and be productive on the go with a long battery life. The major reason I stopped using the Handheld PC devices was that the operating system grew a bit stale since Microsoft stopped updating the OS and the browser would not let me visit the websites I needed to access. The REDFLY can be paired with the latest and greatest Windows Mobile devices and as long as Celio Corp continues to roll out drivers/utilities for the operating system I can use the REDFLY as a modern day Handheld PC that stays as up to date as the devices I connect it with.

RIM inks wireless modem deals

Research In Motion said Wednesday that it has signed two deals with device manufacturers that will use its radio modems for wireless networks. The Waterloo, Ontario-based company said notebook maker Panasonic and handheld manufacturer Melard Technologies will use RIM's radio modems to enable their products to send and receive data over next-generation wireless networks known as GSM (Global System for Mobile Communications) and GPRS (General Packet Radio Service). Panasonic will use RIM's radio modems in its line of durable Toughbook notebooks, which target government and field-service markets such as utilities, telecommunications, insurance, transportation and law enforcement. Melard will use RIM's radio modems in its rugged handhelds, which are also aimed at specialized markets. RIM is best known for its two-way messaging BlackBerry device and service, which allows subscribers to send and receive e-mail messages and calendar updates from a handheld. The company's service also lets subscribers move changes made on the devices onto their primary computers. --Richard Shim, Special to ZDNet News
