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.

Tip of the Week: Change your battery level increments!

2

Okay, this one is for all you folks out there who own a Windows Mobile Pro device that doesn't have the word "Treo" on the front (since those lucky ducks have it built in). I doubt it works for Standard :-( -- but would love it somebody could prove me wrong in the comments.

Basically, this little trick from no2chem and stroths at PPCgeeks (stroths is also a huge contributor here at 'Experts) will change your default and lumpy 10% battery increments to the much more accurate and cool 1%.

So basically instead of going from 80% battery down to 70%, you can see your precious battery trickle away at 77%, 76%, etc. w00t?

It works on the Touch and Mogul definitely and probably other WM devices. Since it's a .cab installer, if there are any problems you should be able to just un-install under your Remove Programs area. Post any feedback below and 'no' it does not consume more battery power, though you may be much more aware of your levels now!

Personally, this was one of my favorite features on the WM 7xx series as I really dig exact battery measurements (relatively)--now if we can do something about those pitiful 25% increments on Standard, eh?

iPhone Gets Exchange Support - Good or Bad for Windows Mobile?

13

You may have heard the news. Here's our live color commentary of the iPhone SDK event. There's a lot of information to parse out with regards to how this will shake out with Windows Mobile -- including how the applications on the iPhone looked stunning compared to most WM apps. More on that later. For now, let's talk about this: Apple licensed Exchange Active Sync.

What's it mean? Read on!

So the iPhone will gain push email, contacts, and calendar. That's big news for Microsoft - they'll pick up a lot of new users for their server products. In a lot of ways it's a bigger attack on RIM than it is on Windows Mobile. First - Apple denigrated the NOC during their presentation - just like Palm did - saying that a 3rd party in the middle is a Bad Idea. It's also a big attack on RIM because now two platforms do their push email via Exchange - Windows Mobile and the iPhone. Together the two might actually have a bigger marketshare than RIM for enterprise in very short order.

But now that the iPhone will support Exchange, will we see an exodus from WM to the iPhone? We'll definitely see some movement in that direction, yes. On the other hand, I am fairly confident in two things.

First, Exchange Active Sync Features on Windows Mobile will always be more advanced.notice, for example, that Apple seems to be writing their own management program instead of using Microsoft's RIM-Server-Killing Microsoft System Center Mobile Device Manager. So lock down, provisioning, and other management features will be more advanced with Windows Mobile. Yet that's the smaller point.

The second point is the bigger point: Apple's licensing of Active Sync is very likely to grow the overall Exchange pie at a much faster rate than their slice of it will steal from Windows Mobile. Which is to say, yes, some WM users will defect, but there will be even more new Windows Mobile users by dint of the ever-growing standardization on Exchange for mobile push email for enterprise.

...Or so it seems to me. Microsoft has until the release of the Apps in June to come up with something that looks like a response to the new features that will appear on the iPhone. Will they be able to deliver?

Is Silverlight Ready for Windows Mobile?

4

Turns out Silverlight might be just around the corner. As we've discussed here before, Silverlight is sort of super-flash-replacement available as a plugin for most browsers on several platforms, including Windows, Mac, Linux, and very soon: Windows Mobile and even ...Nokia?

Silverlight allows designers and developers to produce rich web applications. Now we can expect those same applications on our mobile phones. Microsoft has just signed a deal with Nokia which will bring Silverlight to millions of mobile phones. And yes, in case you were worried, it's definitely coming to Windows Mobile too, in short order - check out this neat demo that we mentioned in May of last year to get a feel for what we mean by "rich web applications."

(Update: Looks like the video of the baseball demo has been taken down. Searching for a copy now)

This will bring heavy competition to Adobe

Moto Q9m Firmware Update Available

Go getcher Firmware update for the Motorola Q9m, which may or may not offer anything you care about, the information is murky at best:

The Q9m update upgrades the Windows Mobile 6 version from AKU 0.2 (which shipped initially) to AKU 0.6. The updated radio firmware version stands at 03.20.29P. It is not clear at this time if the update delivers gpsOne functionality which was added to the Motorola Q9c on Sprint. - PhoneNews.com

Any brave soul want to go give it a shot first and report back?
