New official MySpace app coming this summer

1

Ahead of CTIA this week, MySpace has announced it'll have an official Windows Mobile application ready this summer. But wait! That's not all, folks! MySpace also is hopping on board the Silverlight train. PCMagazine's got the lowdown:

"Our relationship enables app developers to use Silverlight to create engaging MySpace apps and allows Windows Mobile users to have a more personal MySpace experience on their phone," Aber Whitcomb, chief technology officer of MySpace, said in a statement.

If the above picture of the MySpace app looks familiar, you're right. The icons are right along with what we've seen in the Facebook app that was ported over from a Windows Mobile 6.5 ROM. That could well be an indicator that the MySpace app will be just as useable.

Stay tuned for more coming out of CTIA later this week.

0


The mobile internet community and communications service Fring has announced the release of a new, updated, Twitter 2.0 Add-on that will allow you to get immediate twits from people you are following, allow you answer and post your own twits, and keyword search posts.

To get the Twitter 2.0 Add-on, you can go to the add-ons tab inside Fring, unsubscribe to the previous version and re-subscribe to the new version.  Granted if you don't have Fring, you'll need to go to their website to get the application.

Fring is a free download/service that brings online communities together under one roof. It allows Windows Mobile users to connect to social networks including Skype, MSN Messenger, Google Talk, ICQ, SIP, Yahoo, AIM and Facebook. Fring also has offers interface with VOIP services such as Skype Out, SIPNET, EuteliaVIOP, VolPVOIP and VolPTalk.

Funny video announcement of Fring & Twitter after the break. (And, yeah, we now we're seeing video screen shots on Symbian. That should make our friends at NokiaExperts happy.)

HTC Touch Pro 2 Caught on Tape (updated)

10



Well to be fair to the HTC Touch Pro 2, we stumbled upon yet another video that pda.pl was able to capture during a recent visit to HTC.  Just like the Touch Diamond 2's video, there is still no narration but plenty of hip-hop techno music. 

The reset button appears to have been moved beneath the battery cover on the Touch Pro 2 and the video gives a good view of the backside of the screen as it's in the tilted position.  The three sliding hinges look solid.  The video also compares the Touch Pro 2 and Diamond 2 side by side.

[Read: Fuze Mobility]

Update: And yet another video of the Touch Pro 2 in the wild from our friends at Mobilna Technologia after the break.

HTC Touch Diamond2 Available in April?

HTC Touch Diamond2 Available in April?

While sketchy, we are seeing indications that the HTC Touch Diamond 2 may be available in mid-April (emphasis on "may") for the Europe and Asian markets. Uberphones is reporting a retail listing (Expansys.com) that shows the Touch Diamond 2 available on April 19 at at the modest price of 424.99 pounds (a touch over $608 in U.S. dollars). This is about $100 more than the pre-order price we discovered the latter part of February. And if you're thinking about picking one up this way, don't expect it to have the U.S. 3G bands.

It's not the strongest source for a release date, but it is in the ballpark and may be a good indication that we'll see the Touch Diamond 2 in the States shortly thereafter. While we wait for more signs of seeing this new phone come to market, we'll also hope that a carrier picks up the Diamond 2 and takes a bite out of the price tag via contractual discounts. 

Need a little more enticement on the Diamond 2?  Follow the break for a revealing hands-on video that we ran across.

Review: Resco Game Box

Review: Resco Game Box

Games on your WM can be a life saver when sitting in a doctor’s waiting room or in airport waiting for your 3 hour delayed flight. With the average game costing between $9.99 and $19.99, it can be costly to choose a game that is not worth your time while leaving you at square one with needing to buy another game.

This is where WMExperts can help. I have reviewed Resco Gamebox ver 1.12. Is it worth the $19.99? Read on to see if this is one to pass on, or if it is the perfect collection of games that will entertain you when you need it most!

Google Voice says number porting a reality, maybe

4

 

It has been discovered that Google may have a plan in the works to allow you to port your current number into the  Google Voice service. OK, by "plan," we mean they say "we may offer that at some point." Personally I’m fine with having a separate number for the service, although I can see how it could be useful to some.

Further evidence of this upcoming service has been found on a Google help page here. Google also is letting us suggest services we'd like to see on the Voice platform. You can leave your suggestions here. Or, ya know, in our comments. Cause Google's a big fan of WMExperts, dontchaknow.

Updated: GuardMobile v1.11

Updated: GuardMobile v1.11

It's nice to see developers staying on top of things and updating their products to add features or simply improve the applications overall performance. While we've already reviewed GuardMobile, we have received word that they have updated their security application again.

A few of the new features on this update (version 1.11.3372 to be precise) includes the hard reset covering both the internal memory and storage card; the ability to remotely change the primary control number; monitoring of calls; and activating your Windows Mobile password screen lock.

While the previous versions included commands to locate your missing Windows phone, this command timed out after five minutes. The updated version adds the command "force locate," which eliminates the time limit and survives soft-resets. You also have the command "wipe" which erases the data from the phone and storage card without resetting the system.

GuardMobile still does not have an online interface, and interaction is restricted to SMS commands from authorized numbers. Regardless, if you're looking for a on-board security application, the recent updates to GuardMobile keep it an attractive option to consider.

Review: Freedom Mobile Power

Review: Freedom Mobile Power

As our devices become more powerful, packing more electronics into the tiny black slabs we've become so fond of; many of us are finding that we have to find creative ways to conserve our batteries in order to make it through the whole day without being force to recharge.

Freedom (the company) has given us several products that add functionality to our handhelds without adding limitations. Their keychain GPS solutions (Keychain GPS and Keychain GPS 2000) have both earned rave reviews. Freedom's Mobile Power ($49.95 from the WMExperts store) is a self contained power charger that features a 1800mAh battery and male and female mini USB ports. The idea is that the charger is something you can carry around with you and plug in if you need an extra boost through the day.

Samsung WiMax device spotted with Windows flag

3

Samsung apparently has dished a little bit on an upcoming (and as yet unannounced) WiMax device and - lookie, lookie - is that a Windows flag there down at the bottom left?

Not much else is known about the SWD-M100 Mondi, though Phonescoop says that it's destined for Australia's Clear network. And unless the keyboard is minuscule, this appears to be more of a tablet-type phone than a slider.

Stay tuned, folks. The 4G race is racing er, crawling forward.

Snapdragon's graphics get showed off (Video)

9

Having to live with Qualcomm's MSM series of chipsets for so long, it's nice to see the next-gen series (Snapdragon) finally strut its stuff. To refresh your memory, basically these systems are running 1ghz processors, can do HD graphics (720p), "day-long battery life" and have more advanced GPS and wireless connetivity (read more here)

Though we've seen it running that ho-hum custom Today screen on the Toshiba TG01, it seems that at MWC a few weeks ago a much more in-depth graphics demo was given.  We have to say, it's looking very promising so far.

Basically, from a non-technical perspective, it looks like we'll be having Sony PSP-level graphics on our super-thin (10mm) WinMo phones in late 2009/2010, which we're really stoked about. Advanced lighting, shading & translucency? Yes please.

Check out the 3 min demonstration of Qualcomm's Snapdragon after the jump! You don't wanna miss.
