Breaking News: MyFart now available; we have been to the mountaintop

8

Yes fellow Windows phone lovers, we have hit a milestone today: we have been blessed with our very first gaseous joke application, dubbed MyFart for a bargain price of $0.99 in the Windows Marketplace for Mobile.

No more shall we be envious of the iPhone crowd, though they still out number our flatulent vaporware (snicker), we have finally struck back with our own puerile program and we assure thee iPhoners, this is just the beginning, for we smell victory.  Prepare for the fartocalypse! 

(Too much on the last one?)

Update: See George's earlier review of a similar app called, wait for it, Jack the Ripper.  Brilliant.

Opera Mobile 10 beta for Symbian - a sign of things to come for Windows Mobile?

7

First there was Opera Mobile 9.5 beta, which gave way to Opera Mobile 9.7 beta. Now, enter Opera Mobile 10 beta for Symbian. And it looks like a likely progression and brings much-improved password management, among a host of other features. Question is, will we see Opera Mobile 10 on Windows Mobile? Wmpoweruser says yes, unofficially, even though there's zero mention of WinMo in the Symbian release. So, we'll just have to see. [Opera Mobile 10 beta]

Review: Naztech Ultima H5 Case

Naztech produces quality leather phone cases and with the newness of the Touch Pro 2, we looked at the Naztech Ultima H5 Case for the AT&T Tilt/HTC TyTN II to see how well it adapted to the Tilt 2/Touch Pro 2.

Cases are slowly reaching the market for the Touch Pro 2/Tilt 2 and the Ultima H5 might give users an option to pursue while they wait.

Follow the break to see how well the Ultima H5 adapted to the Tilt 2/Touch Pro 2.

Happy birthday, Bill. Love, Bono

Happy birthday, Bill. Love, Bono

Let us now pay homage to our benevolent overlord, Bill Gates, as he has birthday wishes passed on by none other than Bono and U2. Sure, Bono will sell himself to any tech company that comes a callin', but anything that gets the goat of Fake Steve Jobs is OK by us, too. In other news, Bono also does weddings and Bar Mitzvahs. And look for him to serenade Linus Torvalds on Dec. 28 and Jim Balsille on Feb. 3.

Oh, and Steve Ballmer was spotted dancing backstage.

Side-by-side browser test on the HD2, iPhone and Acer neoTouch

6

Browser wars are a favorite pastime among smartphone nerds, and here we have a battle royale from Solopalmari featuring the iPhone, the HTC HD2 and the Acer neoTouch (don't expect to see that one in the states anytime soon). Of course, this test isn't really indicative of anything other than showing how fast each browser is on each phone — we'll leave the "best!" comments up to you guys in the comments.

Manila 2.5 ported to Fuze, VGA phones

5

Until now, if you wanted to run the latest builds of HTC's Manila (TouchFLO 3D), you needed to be running one of the newer generations of HTC phones, as in the Touch Diamond 2, Touch Pro 2, etc. But now Manila 2.5 has been ported to VGA resolution (480x640), and it's already being cooked into ROMs for the HTC Fuze (original Touch Pro). This is all still in early beta, so bugs are likely. But it's good news for those of you with VGA phones. XDA Developers via Mobility Digest

Review: Pocket Informant 9

Review: Pocket Informant 9

Personal Information Management (PIM) tools are the classic example of why PDAs or Smart Phones are useful. Having hundreds of contacts, meetings, and tasks all stored at your fingertips has been the justification for many of us getting into the handheld market. But over the years, Pocket Outlook has been a little behind the curve in both features and usability compared to some of the competitors on the market. When synchronization with an enterprise Exchange Server is billed as one of the selling points for the Windows Mobile platform, having the interface be somewhat stagnated can be a major issue.

In any conversation about replacement PIM tools for Windows Mobile, Pocket Informant is going to be toward the top of the list. Now in version 9, WebIS has improved overall usability and brought the application more in line with standards that are introduced in Windows Mobile 6.5. The question is, did WebIS do enough to make this update worth the $10 cost? Hit the jump to find out.

T-Mobile UK gets HD2 on Nov. 9, hopefully will get picture of it soon

3

So, T-Mobile UK definitely is getting the HTC HD2 this month, even if they currently have a have a picture of the original Touch HD on the site, along with the wrong specs and the line that it's running Android ('cause we know that's not gonna happen). Plus, they're calling it the Touch HD2. Confused? Well, somebody is. Anyhoo, elsewhere on the T-Mo site they're calling it just the HTC HD2, along with a proper picture and specs. So rest easy. So now we know T-Mo UK's getting it. But what about us here in the states? [via wmpoweruser]

So long, Daylight Saving Time

So long, Daylight Saving Time

This morning we bid farewell to Daylight Saving Time for another six months or so. Supposedly that meant an extra hour of sleep, but those of us with dogs, kids and a blatant distrust of The Man think that's just a conspiracy to justify that fiery spinning orb in the sky shining through our window at 5:30 a.m.

But we digress.

Anyhoo, your Windows phone should have automatically compensated for the evilness that is falling back an hour. (It can't, however, compensate for whatever evilness you took part in last night for Halloween. You're on your own there.) No muss, no fuss, no silly patches. For most of us.

Microsoft has issued a patch that updates changes other countries have made in their DST policies. If you're in the U.S., you're good. But if you live in/work with/want to go to another country, check out the list of updates (scroll down) and then grab this CAB file, and you're good to go.

Samsung Omnia II is the official phone of the Winter Olympics

3

Yeah, you read that right. Not the iPhone. Not the Pre. Not a BlackBerry. Not that newfangled Droid. A Windows Mobile phone is the official phone of the 2010 Winter Olympics. And not just any phone, the Samsung Omnia II with its AMOLED screen and 800MHz processor, Windows Mobile 6.5 and all the trimmings. Not bad, eh? [Press release via Unwired View]

CDMA Touch Pro 2 Unlocked. Let the Custom ROMs Begin!

31

Well, many frayed nerves and hours hunched over one of the most popular Windows phones has finally paid off: The "unlocker" which we mentioned a few days ago has been completed, meaning users can now install custom ROMs to their beloved Touch Pro 2s, specifically Verizon, Sprint, U.S. Cellular and all other CDMA versions.

At least for Sprint, it sure beats waiting till "early 2010", eh?

Having this tool now, all the custom ROMs which are literally waiting in the wings (e.g. Energy, Mighty, CFay, Juicy, etc.) can be installed -- this includes WM6.5 and WM6.5.1 builds with all that custom goodness from your favorite 'Chefs'.

A big congrats to everyone for this achievement (donations are in order) and now if you pardon us, we're off for some ROM flashing ourselves! ...

Go HERE to grab the HardSPL!  Here for the SIM Unlock and here for support.
