Review: Moto Q Cradle by Motorola

Motorola Announcing the Q10 at CTIA? They Need It.

3

Unwired view points out that Motorola was pretty much a non-starter at this year's Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, but that they might be planning a big splash at CTIA in Las Vegas, starting April 1st (Yes, WMExperts will be there, baby). One of the phones we've been waiting for, the “Mystery Q,” which many are hoping is the Q10. The Q10, like its lower-numbered bretheren, will be a QWERTY keyboard device, but it's also rumored to sport a touchscreen!

Oh, look, a youtube video is after the break, featuring this little tidbit I grabbed and threw at the top. Looks like a Q10 to me. Another couple of shots from the video after the break as well!

The Q10 would be good news. See: Motorola could really, really, REALLY use some good news right about now. We've avoided talking about much of the doom and gloom surrounding the company lately if only because we don't like kicking a dead horse when it's down (mixing metaphors, though, we're cool doing that). When we told you on February 4th that the “MotoCoaster was just getting started,” we didn't lie. Motorola decided to not spin off their handset division, but instead to find somebody to head it (New CEO Greg Brown said he'd do it himself, but apparently changed his mind). With all that fuss going on, it wasn't much of a surprise to to us to hear that president of Mobile devices Stu Reed quit (not to mention their chief marketing officer). And do you remember how investor Carl Icahn was trying to take over the board with people that, er, didn't act like the Keystone Kops? He's on his way towards that goal with a vengeance, moving from owning a 1.4% share last year to a 6.3% share earlier this month. So expect another round of hijinks as Icahn tries to oust some folks from the board (again).

So, yeah, bring on the Q10 and bring it on quick, Motorola. The Q9h (see our full Q9h Review) is too beautiful a device to be chained to such a screwed up company, we want more of that.

Microsof's Web-advertising for WM Ain't Too Shabby

6

Seems that MS is finally getting into the "How do we make WM look useful to the average-Joe?" by launching a fairly nice and informative web site that walks one through some important functions like Mobile Office,Windows Media Player, Mobile Outlook and the ever popular Live Search with a touch of humor to boot

Other sections include "See the phones" and "See the Software" allowing one to ...well you get it. Check it out and pass it on, I suppose.

Thanks to VW for the heads up.

Sports Illustrated introduces mySI mobile (beta)

9

One of the things that I like about always having a live internet connection on me is that a wealth of live information is always at my fingertips. Along that vein…one of the things that I am constantly seeking updates on (much to my wife’s dismay) are sports scores and news. Until recently, none of my favorite sports sites have been very good at handling mobile web browsers.

CNN’s Sports Illustrated appears to have noticed my plight. Available only on select Windows Mobile devices, mySI mobile allows you to view scores, schedules, and standings for your 4 favorite teams. The product page also states that the data is updated when the application is launched. The coolest feature is the ability to add games to your Outlook calendar.

I was going to do a quick review, but although my Blackjack is listed at the top of the Supported Phones, I get an “Unsupported Device” page when I attempt the install.

Update: I emailed the mySI support team and was sent here. Looks like the manual downloads for each of the supported devices. It would appear that my issue was that I am using WM6, whereas they list the Blackjack I as a WM5 device...

Let us know in the comments if you get it to work, as well as what your thoughts are. After the break - More screenshots!

Sprint Mogul Updated with Rev A, GPS

Sprint Mogul Updated with Rev A, GPS

Although the Official download site isn't showing the new update, HTC has posted the long-awaited update to the Sprint Mogul, just as we predicted over the weekend. Go get it:

Direct Download from HTC America

Update: HTC is getting hammered. We'll host a mirror here for now:

Mirror

Since HTC hasn't yet posted the official update list, we can't say for sure what we're in for. However, we're darn sure that we are getting EVDO Rev A. and GPS is getting turned on in some way, shape, or form . Not to mention, version 3.35.651.2 should also hopefully include yet another fix for persistent Bluetooth problems.

Update: Here's the press release for you folks that love that sort of thing. GPS confirmed for really real and apparently the Mogul is the first Rev A. Handset. Seems odd that it's the first, no?

Splash money ready for Windows Mobile

3

Gas at the pump, 20 dollars. Dinner for two 18 dollars. New pair of shoes, 70 dollars. Knowing how much you spent in the day just by looking at your phone, priceless. Too many a times I would get nickel and dimes to death throughout the day. Gas here, eBay fee there and an ice cream there again. At the end of the month I would look at my bank account and be baffled at some of the spending I do aimlessly. Even my online mint account can only do so much because of the delay in updates to the site. Then I was introduced to Splash Money and things changed.

Now with the new Splash Money for Windows Mobile I will never have this problem again. From now on you will always know how much you have, how much you have spent, and what you can save. Now you can spend without worrying like you use too. New budgets and pie charts will keep you on your road to saving for new golf clubs or that new car. Do yourself a favor download Splash Money. With the money you save from the free trial you can buy the app and smile a lot more. Ready, set, start saving!

Features:

  • Connect wirelessly to almost any online bank account (they support a large number of 'em)
  • Supports most account types: checking, savings, credit card, cash, asset, liability, money market and line of credit
  • Secure password protection using Blowfish encryption
  • Quickly enter transactions using auto-fill and memorized transactions
  • Reconcile account statements
  • A ton more

LinkedIn makes a move to mobile devices

1

A lot of times you want to keep your LinkedIn profile updated immediately or be able to hook up with a new LinkedIn contact while they're standing right in front of you at a meeting. What better way to update your profile and stay in the know than from your Windows Mobile device? It seems LinkedIn has caught the mobile bug and decided to go mobile, making it easier to log in from our mobile devices. iPhone owners can also check it out. Now you have the information that

Sprint Mogul GPS / Rev A ROM Update on Monday March 10th!?!

5

I am not one to take rumors of ROM updates very seriously as you can see from my last thread on the topic in the PPC-6800 forum. But it appears that this time might be different. One of our newest members to the forums, Charlesclai, was the first to post that a Sprint rep shared that Monday March 10th is the date that they were just given in their Window Mobile Training this last week for the release of the newest ROM update for the Mogul. After doing a little snooping around it quickly became apparent that the same report was being posted on multiple forums from different independent Sprint sources.

This update is the one that we have all been waiting for that should include unlocking the Rev A radio and the GPS chip in the phone. It will probably also include a BT stereo fix, but unknown if it will address any other BT issues. The new ROM version is rumored to be 3.35.651.2.

It is not expected to have WM 6.1 or SprintTV, so don't get your hopes up too high for these.

I am still not willing to hold my breath until 9:00 am on Monday March 10th, but with as much confirmation as anyone can reasonably expect from a rumored ROM release date, you can bet that I will be at the HTC site to see if I can download it then.
