Hulu to Go Mobile? Yes Please.

We're not too proud to admit: we love hulu.com. Where else can you get Fantasy Island and Battlestar Galactica (the original and still the best!) and Kojak and Airwolf all for-free watching some ads? Well, right now, it's only at hulu and only on your desktop.

Take heart, fans of cop shows, for according to mocoNews we might be able to indulge our predilection for quality television on the go soon enough. Hulu CEO Jason Kilar hinted that they're working on it, saying

CooTek TouchPal Soft Keyboard hits Version 3

2

Now that the HTC Touch has been made available on the big three CDMA carriers (That's Verizon, Alltel, and Sprint, by the way), there are a bunch of folks probably wondering if there's a better way to type on it. Well, we've told you before it was TouchPal by CooTek and it looks like that advice is going to stay the same - development continues on the software and we're now seeing Version 3, which has a few new features we like the sound of:

How To: Set Up SMS Notifications for Gmail Mobile

7

Many of us use the built in email client on Windows Mobile but sometimes we get creative. Sometimes we venture out and decide to download Java and the Gmail app along with it. Then we have full access to our email. All the beauty of archive, threaded email, contacts, and search is at our finger tips. Yet it still lacks something. It lacks alerts. Unfortunately at the moment there is no way to be alerted from the Java Gmail app when a new email has arrived.

So today we will be demonstrating a temporary fix.

The first thing that you are going to want to do is go into your Gmail settings. Click on forwarding. Then click on the button that says

HP IPAQ 900 Looks Powerful, Strangely Forlorn

1

We really are very fond of the iPaq Messenger 510, which we nabbed a hands-on with at CES. It's a cute little bugger and makes working with VOIP and your office's SIP a cinch. The bad news is that the 510 hasn't and doesn't look to get any carrier support anytime soon. Things are even worse for the iPaq 610, which got sued off our shores back in February - that's a bummer because it has a neat virtual 5-way touchpad that makes more space for a bigger screen.

Basically the message here is don't get too excited about the iPaq 900, which Engadget Mobile just spotted on the FCC's website. If you haven't caught our drift yet, it would be a crying shame if this iPaq didn't get picked up and saw a wider audience, but given the iPaq's recent history our breath is decidedly not held.

Ok, that's a lie. We're really hoping that AT&T will pick this up. Why's that?

  • Windows Mobile 6 Pro
  • QuadBand GSM / HSDPA
  • WiFi / AGPS / Bluetooth
  • 3 Megapixel Camera
  • Front-facing 320x240 Touchscreen
  • 1940 mAh batter (!)
  • 520Mhz CPU
  • 128MB RAM / 256 ROM

HAWT. Go check out the FCC's images after the break!

Verizon XV6900, The Touch, Now Available

5

We told you that the Verizon XV6900, aka the Touch, would be available on April 16th. Lo and Behold, the Verizon Wireless XV6900 Product Page is indeed up and ready to accept your order. You're looking at dropping $299 US on the sucker after rebates and contracts and whatnot.

We all know the Touch very well by now, but it's unclear as of yet what version of TouchFLO we're looking at. It could be crippled, crap-app-filled version that Sprint gave unto us. It could also be the un-crippled, points-directly-to-Windows-Apps properly, and also has a real fourth side to the TouchFLO Cube that Alltel dropped.

Either way, Verizon's version comes in Arctic white and rocks the standard EVDO, Bluetooth, Windows Mobile 6, 128RAM / 256 ROM, and 2 megapixel camera. If you grab one, do please let us know about the TouchFLO on it: is it good times or bad?

Sprint's Ensemble Billing: 2 Parts Awesome, 1 Part Lame

8

Co-Podcaster and all-around-Windows-Mobile-Expert Malatesta is reporting to us via SMS that his Sprint data isn't working. He's in New York City and started losing data yesterday at 4pm Eastern. Reprovision, reprovision... 5 times and no dice. He called up Sprint Tech Support (brave man) and they claimed: “We are experiencing a nation outage.”

We're very confident that Sprint is not actually experiencing a nationwide data outage. What's more likely is that Mal just switched over to Sprint's Ensemble Biling. Switching over to Ensemble has caused some problems for some of our forum users as well, which is a bummer because the new billing system (which everybody, slowly, is going to be migrated to eventually) is great. What's so great about Ensemble Billing?

  • It's not outsourced like their previous billing system, presumably meaning that once they're all-Ensemble their customer service should improve by dint of their solution being in-house and better known
  • You can add a “Pick 3” plan similar to T-Mobile's MyFave's or Alltel's Circle
  • It will move the merger of Sprint and Nextel just a little closer to completion
  • You can switch phones online!

That last one is really cool - just punch in your phone's data and your number can migrate to that Sprint phone you got as a hand-me-down from that rich uncle of yours, no more waiting to talk to a Sprint rep on the phone.

Still and all, who's on and who's not on the Ensemble system is still a bit of a crap shoot. Add in the crap shoot of whether or not moving to the new system will kill your ability to provision your data or keep calls from dropping and you have a lot of craps your shooting. Guess it's not just RIM that has these sorts of problems, eh?

How about you? Got Data?

Windows Mobile Phones Running on GSM and CDMA

3

Looks like a little company named HKC (sounds familiar) is upping the anti when it comes to designing new Windows Mobile devices. I just caught wind that they are launching new Windows Mobile Pro handsets that work on the trusty GSM as well as the beloved CDMA. That would be the W1000, which covers GSM on 900 / 1800 / 1900 as well as CDMA. Note: that means no US GSM support. Or sales, likely.

They even whipped up what they claim is the first dual-SIM GSM handset. To me it sounds like a good investment if you

Samsung i900 Spotted

Samsung i900 Spotted

Take a gander above at the Samsung i900, spotted by Unwired View at at Dutch convention. We're talking Windows Mobile 6.1, Bluetooth, WiFi, 240x400 Touchscreen, gigantic 1500mAh battery, FM Radio, and TV-Out. Probably one of a gazillion keyboard-less Windows Mobile phones we can expect to see in the coming months.

Oh, did we mention that it is to sport a Five Megapixel Camera? We didn't. Well now we did and now you suddenly are more interested. Sorry, though, because we probably won't see it in the states since it's a Triband phone. Then again, that's what we said about the Samsung SGH-i780, but then Samsung decided to make the SGH-i788 just for us stateside folks.

Speaking of the i788, it looks like this i900 shares its ridiculous “optical mouse but no standard dpad” format. Stop that right now, Samsung.

The Shadow II: Little. Glossy. Better.

The Shadow II: Little. Glossy. Better.

New kid on the block tmonews [via] has the scoop: the T-Mobile Shadow II in the black, glossy flesh. We had heard from a little bird at CES that the next version of the Shadow would support Hotspot@Home, which lets you use your WiFi connection for calls and seamlessly transfers them to the cell network. That little bird appears to have been correct. What else do we see: it may or may not be Windows Mobile 6.1, but regardless it sports the Shadow's classic 6.1-esque sliding home screen.

What else do we know? Not much, except we'll admit that we think the original Shadow looks a whole lot better and a whole lot less finger-print-prone.
