How developers submit apps to Marketplace

1

We're getting closer day by day to the long-awaited launch of the Windows Marketplace for Mobile. In the slideshow above (hit the full-screen button if you actually want to see anything) we get a look at what developers see when they're registering apps for the Marketplace. Inside baseball, for sure, but interesting nonetheless. [via Windows Mobile Team blog]

And one item to note is on Slide 8, under "Payment Information." It appears that to pay through the Mobile Operator system, an app must be priced using choices Microsoft provides. Otherwise, purchase is only available using a credit card. (See our previous discussion on 99-cent apps.)

Choose a price for your product from the list of available Mobile Operator price points below. The prices in each market are calculated based on your selection.

The number of Mobile Operator price points is limited but ensures that your application will be available for purchase via mobile operator billing (with participating operators). If you wish to select a different price point select "choose your own price." In this case, users will only be able to pay for your application using a credit card.

We'll just have to see what kind of headaches that causes. If you want some more goodies, check after the jump for a slide show of how developers register for the Marketplace.

App updates: Skyfire 1.1, Twikini 1.4

1

A couple of minor updates recently were released for a couple of popular Windows Mobile apps.

Skyfire has been bumped to Version 1.1, bringing keyboard shortcuts for Page Up (2) and Page Down (8). There also are a few performance upgrades. Download Skyfire here.

Twikini also has a new build, reaching Version 1.4. But unless you've been dying for German, Italian, Dutch and Danish language support, you can skip this one, as language additions comprise all the new features. Download Twikini here.

RIM purchases Torch Mobile; Iris Browser for Windows Mobile will be discontinued

20


Word dropped this morning that Torch Mobile, makers of the Iris Browser, had been purchased by Research in Motion. That's great news for BlackBerry fans, who have been in dire need of a browser for, well, ever. However, this is bad news for Windows Mobile. We just heard back from Torch Mobile spokesman George Staikos, and the response is unequivocal:

The company will no longer continue developing for Windows Mobile or Windows-CE.

Bad news, indeed, if you're set on using Webkit. The good news is that we still have a number of more-than-decent browsers available, including Skyfire, Opera Mobile and even Internet Explorer, which is slowly getting better. And we're still looking for the mobile version of Firefox in the coming months.

Another look at the HTC Mega

Another look at the HTC Mega

A couple more pics of the HTC Mega have leaked out to ai.rs, and they pretty much confirm what we first showed you earlier this month (seen here at right).

Specs also are right along the lines with what we first reported, with a couple of extras thrown in. They are:

  • Windows Mobile 6.5 Professional.
  • Qualcomm MSM7225 at 528MHz.
  • Dimensions: 104x55x12.8mm.
  • Quad-band EDGE, 900/21MHz for 3G.
  • 385kbps upload, 7.2Mbps download.
  • 2.8-inch QVGA touchscreen (240x320).
  • 3.2MP fixed-focus camera.
  • 256MB RAM/256MB ROM.
  • MicroSD card.
  • WiFi b/g.
  • Bluetooth 2.0 +EDR.
  • aGPS.
  • 1100mAh battery.
  • TouchFLO (eventual version unsure).

So, not the highest-end device, that's for sure. And the 3G bands point to a release outside the United States anyway.

Review: Joggah v1.0

Review: Joggah v1.0

Admittedly I avoid exercise like the plague but software developer Subsembly GmbH has a Windows Mobile application that might make jogging a little more attractive. Joggah is a running log book, timer, distance calculator, and shoe mileage calculator.

Granted it's unlikely to get me training for a marathon, if jogging, walking or hiking is your cup of tea, Joggah might be worth a look. It'll even help you keep track of how many miles your shoes have on them. Follow the break to see how well Joggah can keep pace things.

Get custom ROMs on the Verizon Ozone

0

Just a few days ago we gained the ability to flash custom ROMs to the HTC Touch Pro 2 on T-Mobile. Now comes an unlocker for the Verizon Ozone, aka the HTC Cedar.

Note that this DOES NOT work with Maple-based devices such as the Sprint Snap and T-Mobile Dash 3G. In fact, says XDA creator jockyw2001, "Running this sspl on a Dash3G will definitely brick it." So, there. If you do want to flash a Dash 3G, hit up this thread. Sorry, Sprint Snap folks. No flash for you. Yet.

If you're ready to customize your Ozone, check it the thread here, and be sure to read all the instructions first.

T-Mobile Touch Pro 2 $149.99 on Amazon, too

9

The other day we reported the T-Mobile Touch Pro 2 was going for $149.99 over at WM Deals. We are now seeing the HTC phone being offered over at Amazon for the same low price. It does require new service, though you can get it for $549 without a contract. As an added bonus, Amazon will throw in free two-day shipping when you buy the phone with a service plan.

Thanks goes out to M. Hagen for using our tip line to alert us on this deal.
