Matthew is a professional naval architect by day and a mobile gadgeteer at all other times. He purchases his own devices and then sells them on eBay or Swappa to buy more. Many other devices are sent for review on a 30-day loaner basis and then returned to the carrier or manufacturer. If any are provided as “long term loaner units” this will be clearly disclosed in his reviews.

iambic releases Agendus for Windows Mobile Smartphone

Agendus for Windows Mobile Smartphones integrates your Calendar, Contacts, and Tasks with lots of personalization options like views, colors, and icons. The same core data from Pocket Outlook is used so there is nothing special you have to do to sync your data with Outlook or your Exchange server. You can also get weather forecasts, quotes-of-the-day, and Day in History information on your Today View with a wireless connection in the Professional version. Check out the comparison table to see the differences between the Standard and Professional editions (not to be confused with Windows Mobile 6 Standard and Professional). One of the major differences is the mapping functionality where the Professional Edition allows you to quickly view a map of a contact or appointment if a location is in the data field. There is a trial version available and the full retail version of the Professional Edition can be purchased for US$24.95 with the Standard Edition priced at US$19.95.

The Palm Foleo: the beginning and end of the mobile companion category

The Palm Foleo: the beginning and end of the mobile companion category

The Palm Foleo is taking a lot of heat in the press right now and after taking some time to think about it some more I tend to agree that there really isn't a place for the device between a smartphone and a PC. There is a simple solution to add a full size QWERTY keyboard that has been around for years and smartphones are so advanced today that there really isn't a need for more. Do you think there is a market for the Palm Foleo?
