ZoomSafer Beta announced

ZoomSafer Beta announced

ZoomSafer is a new application that is just now getting off the ground. It is designed to help mobile phone users stay focused on the road and less focused on checking email, texting, and other phone activities that would otherwise be a distraction.

The beta version is due to be released for Blackberry users later this month and by the end of the year for Windows Mobile users. Plans are to eventually offer ZoomSafer for Symbian and iPhone devices as well.

The company also plans to offer ZoomMate in mid-October that appears to be a scaled down version of ZoomSafer. ZoomMate can be used no matter what type of phone you have. According to the company ZoomMate is a voice safety portal that will allow you to use your voice, NOT your thumbs, to send e-mail, texts, and tweets. You'll also be able to use your ears, NOT your eyes, to listen to emails, texts, and other content.

We'll keep you posted on how ZoomSafer and ZoomMate develops and post a review once the Windows Mobile Beta is available. The concept sounds promising and while we wait for the Windows Mobile version, follow the break to see a video demonstration of ZoomSafer in action.

Mozilla VP talks Firefox mobile

We're still eagerly anticipating the release of the mobile Firefox browser, and the boys and girls at Mozilla are hard at work. Vice President Jay Sullivan recently talked with Lifehacker about plans in the mobile space.

"What we're seeing happen in mobile is just what we've been seeing on the desktop for the last five years. That's migrating from more client-heavy applications to more web-based applications. Fennec is built on the latest version of our browser engine, and has support for offline storage and things called web workers, which enables threaded applications that can run faster. All these technologies make it possible to build a first-class, HTML5-based application."

And in case you missed it, we also had our own interview with Firefox mobile's Brad Lassey some time ago.

Review: Resco Pocket Radio

Review: Resco Pocket Radio

Internet Radio is one of the things that I like most about the Internet. Having moved around a lot, it’s nice to be able to continue listening to the radio stations that I’ve become accustomed to. Finding an Internet Radio application for Windows Mobile that is worth the cost isn’t the easiest task. SPB Software came out with their Internet Radio App (SPB Radio) late last month to good reviews.

Resco, makers of Resco Explorer and Resco Contact Manager also released an update to their Internet Radio app last month. Resco Pocket Radio offers some similar functionality to SPB Radio, but also offers some variations on the feature set. The complete rundown is after the break.

More Verizon 'Whitestone' aka Diamond 2 diagrams

16

Though deviating from HTC's idea of the Diamond 2, Verizon sure has an idea of what its will look like (dubbed "Whitestone"), and it is basically the Touch Pro 2 sans keyboard, which many have been clamoring for. (Others have rightfully noted that's basically the Touch HD.)

We broke the first the image of what this October-destined device will look like for Verizon and now we have some layout diagrams to boot.

Some things to note are the inclusion of the unique "kickstand" and the stylus, which we're surprised is still there. Also is the dedicated "multimedia" button, which along with said kickstand is making this device very media-centric.  And why not with that huge 3.6-inch screen and 5MP camera? Seems spot on. Oh, and how about that 3.5mm jack?

More pics after the break.

Microsoft Office coming to Nokia smartphones

3

For better or for worse (or own Nokia Experts likely will be less than enthused), Microsoft and Nokia announced today that MSFT's Office Mobile suite is headed to the world's favorite Finnish smartphone maker and the Symbian platform.

Because we love bullet points, here's what's coming, in bullet points:

  • The ability to view, edit, create and share Office documents on more devices in more places with mobile-optimized versions of Microsoft Word, Microsoft PowerPoint, Microsoft Excel and Microsoft OneNote.
  • Enterprise instant messaging and presence, and optimized conferencing and collaboration experience with Microsoft Office Communicator Mobile
  • Mobile access to intranet and extranet portals built on Microsoft SharePoint Server.
  • Enterprise device management with Microsoft System Center.

That's stuff that we've enjoyed on Windows Mobile, of course, forever. And it's a no-brainer for Microsoft to go this route. Nokia has 45 percent of the world's smartphone marketshare.

Full presser here, and video of the announcement after the break.

Twitter client Twikini updated to 1.2

Twitter client Twikini updated to 1.2

Twitter client Twikini V 1.2 has been released. While it's not the cheapest (read: free) client out there, it is one of our favorites. Here's what's new in 1.2:

  • When you click a Twitpic link, a large version of the photo is shown inside Twikini. No more having to launch a browser.
  • You can choose to launch links in Skweezer.
  • Twikini can show @replies and DMs by default at startup. Similarly, you can choose to only auto-refresh @'s and DM's.
  • Nu på dansk!
  • If you scroll to the end of the time line, Twikini will "wrap" back to the top. (Careful: If you're at the top of the time line and hit "up," it'll take you to the bottom of the time line.)
  • After replying to a tweet, the time line won't jump back to the top.
  • Improved GPS codes and several other bug fixes.

You can install this version right over your old one, but you'll have to re-input your accounts. Twikini is $4.95 and has a 14-day trial. You can find it here.

Introducing the T-Mobile Touch Pro 2

Introducing the T-Mobile Touch Pro 2

Today's the day, folks. It's finally here. The first Touch Pro 2 has been released on a U.S. carrier (it's in stores, and you can find it online), and the fine folks at T-Mobile have the honors. Of course, T-Mo also has the dubious distinction of having a TP2 without a 3.5mm headphone jack, and we now know that the official price is $349 after a two-year contract. But them's the breaks.

Reviews are in from the usual suspects (Nokia Experts and ZDNet regular Matt Miller; Engadget; Gizmodo). But we're gonna be in the trenches with you folks today to see what the fuss is all about. And we're going to do it together. So as you pick up a T-Mo Touch Pro 2 today and in the coming days, send pics of your plunder to phil.nickinson at wmexperts dot com, and we'll post up them for all to see.

See ya in the store!

Now the T-Mobile Touch Pro 2 is $279? (Late-nite update: Not so much)

16

We'll make you a deal: This will be our last post on the T-Mobile Touch Pro 2 and its on-contract price before the thing actually launches tomorrow. In exchange, you'll bear with us as we again scratch our heads at another leaked pricing strategy. This one, again courtesy of TmoNews, has the TP2 at $279 with a two-year contract, and $329 with a one-year deal.

So, we'll find out for real in a few hours. That work for you guys?

Update: Nope, it's $349. Sorry, folks.

Possble HTC Leo rendering

Possble HTC Leo rendering

And so, the HTC rumor merry-go-round continues. We've already brought you what we believe to be the specs for the HTC Leo, aka the Athena 2. Now, here's a photo to go with it.

A refresher on the specs:

  • Manilla 2.5
  • WVGA/16:9 Screen/4.3"
  • Snapdragon/1GHz
  • 8MP Camera--NEW (up from 5MP?)
  • WM6.5
  • 320mb/512mb RAM/ROM

The general consensus remains that the Leo will be more of a Mobile Internet Device than a phone, even a slider phone, so it's possible there's a keyboard hidden in there somewhere. It's also possible that we're looking at somebody's Photoshop hopes and dreams, so let's just take all this with a big grain of salt.

From the forums: Exchange connections, sending contacts, over-the-air updates

0

Here's a forum post from WMExperts reader Blinocac200sx, who has a problem with his Exchange account.

How do I change my exchange account. It's currently set for a place I no longer work for, and now I want to use it at my current job. I can change the server, but it doesn't want to let me change the domain or user name.

The answer's easy enough, if you know where to look. (Yeah, welcome to Windows Mobile.)

What else is going on in the forums? Simbadogg asks about over-the-air updates with Windows Mobile 6.5. The Celio REDFLY developer's forum is jumping. And Glidersgalore needs some help sending a contact by e-mail. Join the conversations!

Review: Nite Ize Cargo Clip Case

Review: Nite Ize Cargo Clip Case

If you have any experience with Nite Ize, no doubt you’ve seen their rugged, blue collar cases. Although they’ve dabbled in more traditional leather pouches and such, a Nite Ize case is typically characterized by tough rip-stop nylon and a belt clip that is practically indestructible. The Nite Ize Cargo Clip case is another addition to their line of rugged cases.

T-Mobile Touch Pro 2 to be $349.99 with 2-year contract; $549 retail

31

With the T-Mobile Touch Pro 2 set for release on Wednesday, pricing was still a bit up in the air. But TmoNews has tracked down some confirmation, and it's as we feared — this is gonna be pricey.

A two-year contract will get you the Touch Pro 2 for $349.99. A one-year contract takes it to $399, and the TP2 will sell at retail for $549. But as we've said before, you need to factor in the price of the voice and data plans when figuring the overall cost.

That said, it sounds like a good many of you are willing to drop that much, if not more, for one of the most anticipated phones so far this year. What say you?
