GSmart t600 - digital TV on a WinMo device

GSmart t600 - digital TV on a WinMo device

And now for something completely different ... (Or at least not the Treo Pro)

Dieter got a quick look at the GSmart t600 back at CTIA, and now we're getting an in-depth review of the Gigabyte device, thanks to the folks at PhoneArena.

While it's hardly a looker by today's standards - and it almost appears to be begging for a lawsuit as an iPod lookalike - the T600 has one thing going for it that no one else does - the ability to watch digital television over the air.

What else do you get?

  • 520 MHz Intel XScale processor
  • 256 megs ROM/64 megs RAM
  • 480x640 display
  • Windows Mobile 6.1 pro
  • WiFi
  • 2-MP camera with flash

And that's really about it. No 3G bands. Other than the antenna and TV capability, nothing to write hope about.

Also, Digital Video Broadcasting - Terrestrial isn't even available in the United States, Canada, or anywhere in North or South America, for that matter, so we wouldn't recommend losing too much sleep over this one yet.

Even more Treo Pro (850w) Shots...

Man, this is getting crazy now.

Here are a few dozen more, super high rez pics of the seemingly popular Treo Pro.

Every angle is covered we think:

  • Stylus
  • Bundled Headphones
  • Battery size and comparison to Treo 650
  • Qualcomm 7201 chipset

Is anything missing? See more in our forum and Treo8.com.

Thanks navyyang. Few more after the jump!

AT&T Tilt 6.1 ROM Update Imminent?

AT&T Tilt 6.1 ROM Update Imminent?

Get your browsers set to "refresh" as it looks like HTC is slowly getting ready to release the WM 6.1 update for the AT&T Tilt.

How we knows? If you go to the newly revamped HTC update site, you'll find a heap load of contradictory information, that's how. (See AT&T's own discussion forum for the frenzy)

First on the main page you'll see the ROM 1.62.502.0 from February but with the date of 2008-08-06.

Click to the download page though and you'll find this:

AT&T Tilt Windows Mobile 6.1 Software (ROM Version 3.57.502.2 WWE) This ROM update is intended for the AT&T Tilt only and users should not load or attempt to load this version on any other device as it may cause serious issues/damage.

Features:

  • Windows Mobile 6.1
  • HTC Home
  • Video Share Calling
  • Threaded SMS
  • MS Voice Command
  • OneNote Mobile
  • Remote Desktop Monitor
  • Enroll Domain
  • Managed Programs
  • PTT Button now available for reassignment under Start>Settings>Buttons

Not too shabby, eh? Too bad when you click for the download you still get the old ROM version (we repeat: it is still the OLD rom) :-(

Hopefully it won't be too much longer for you folks!

Thanks Atul!

More Treo Pro Pictures (UPDATED with new Details!)

50

When it rains, it POURS. This time we find them from nomad2000, again in our forums, who found them at treo8. What we know:

  • 400Mhz CPU , but snappy response
  • 256MB ROM, 128MB RAM! (Other reports show “In use: 43.96mb, Free 57.72mb”)
  • 320*320 screen
  • GPS
  • Full Tri-band 3G, Quad-band GSM
  • 2 Megapixel camera
  • microUSB connector!
  • 3.5mm Earphone connector
  • 1500mah battery (this is looking like it might actually be true?)

Hit the thread / comments after the break to see a massive number of them!

Update: Also after the break, Scottymomo has dug through his cache and found the original flash demo that was taken down by Palm. There's lots of juicy Treo Pro details to dig through, so click through!

New details on the Treo Pro

  • The battery is pretty much confirmed to be a near-unbelievable-for-this-size 1500 mAh.
  • The WiFi switch is over on the side and works exactly as you'd like it to
  • There is a decidedly non-Treo-esque power button up on the top, which brings the Treo more in line with traditional Windows Mobile devices.
  • Plenty of program memory to work with:
    • Storage Memory Total: 103.05mb
    • Program Memory Total: 101.18mb
    • Program Memory in use (not sure what was running at the time though): 43.96mb
    • Free: 57.22
  • The Treo Pro includes the HTC Memory Manager. Check out the little drop-down in the upper-right of the today screen.
  • Speaking of HTC customizations, it also looks like the Treo sports something very similar to HTC's wireless manager
  • Preinstalled software includes Adobe Reader, Embertec Java for java apps, Telenav, and Sprite Backup.
  • The microSD card and reset holes are underneath the battery cover, but you don't need to remove the battery to access them. It will support microSD cards up to 32gb!
  • It has the 800w's neat screensaver
  • LED isn't all that useful

Be sure to check out scottymomo's new post for the images and the rest of the details!

Motorola Q9h 6.1 Update Officially Available

8

Mike, who'd previously let us know about that leaked out 6.1 update has been watching Motorola's site like a ravenous hawk hovering over a field mouse. That mouse has finally popped out of its hole: head on over to Motorola's site for the official Motorola Q9h 6.1 Update.

You're going to need the standard complement of update tools before you get going: Windows XP or Vista, internet connectivity (the software just might be calling home to check to see if your Q9h is legit), and a full backup before you update. Like all ROM updates, this one will wipe your device, so get prepared.

Welcome to the sliding panel glory of Windows Mobile 6.1 on the Q9h everybody. I've been in here for awhile, and let me tell you: jump on in, the water's fine.

Download the installer directly here. Thanks, Mike!

Sprint Diamond Spotted -- in Red!

Sprint Diamond Spotted -- in Red!

Over at Sprint Users, r0fl has scored some promotional images of the Sprint Diamond. As we suspected, it does have the same flat back as the Telus Diamond, but it looks a whole lot sexier in red. Specs and whatnot are still expected to match that Telus version as well:

  • 101mm x 51mm x 14mm
  • EVDO Rev A
  • WiFi, Bluetooth 2.0
  • 640 x 480 Touchscreen
  • Qualcomm MSM 7510A Processor running at 528MHz
  • 256 ROM, 256 RAM, 4 Gigs internal (no expansion)
  • Opera 9.5 for the broswer
  • 3.2 megapixel cameral
  • 1340 mAh battery

...Seems like a safe bet this will be the first Diamond to hit the US, hopefully soon! Thanks to BubbaTex for the tip!

Pandora Coming to Windows Mobile ...Eventually

0

I love me some Pandora -- it's an online music service that allows you to create virtual 'stations' based on your favorite artist or song, then allows you to refine that station by rating music up and down. They've created a wildly popular client for the iPhone, but Windows Mobile is still waiting. The good news: Pandora is working on a mobile client for their music service for Windows Mobile. The bad news: we could have written that exact sentence over two years ago, as this timeline at wmpoweruser makes clear.

It's not hopeless, though, as the CTO at Pandora, Tom Conrad, responded to the above with a well-written letter:

The good news is that we do have a team working on Windows Mobile versions of Pandora. Given my track record it’s probably best not to comment on the “when” but it’s certainly not a question of “if”.
At least for a small company like Pandora, the incredibly diverse mobile universe creates a real challenge with respect to where to place your limited resources. Without question the iPhone turned out to be a great bet for us. So far, the investment in feature phones has been a more modest success. We’re all optimistic that we’ll be able to find a iPhone-like success on Windows Mobile, but only time will tell.

In the meantime, there's always Last.FM.

Sprints Airave Reviewed, Ready for Purchase

4

Sprints Airave was Sprint's way of saying sorry for the sucky service but we have a plan. That plan: drop $99 initially and then another $4.99 per month for current minutes or $10 a month for unlimited minues on your own personal little cell tower connected to your broadband connection. That's the good news. Bad news: Sprint includes a GPS unit that you have to place by a window to verify you're only using it in the U.S. Bummer, because this would be a perfect travel companion, no?

All in all, a little pricey and not as good as we'd hoped, but hey: Sprint just lost $34 million, how did you think they were going to get that back?

Anyhow, Engadget Mobile gave it a review and the thing works just fine -- for bars and calls. If you're hoping this thing will also beef up your EVDO connection, keep hoping. Word is that it just works on the 1xRTT Vision connection, capped at 153 kbps. Lame.

Sprint Phone-As-Modem now $15 a month

Sprint Phone-As-Modem now $15 a month

We'd already heard rumblings that Sprint would be cutting its Phone-as-Modem tethering plan from $40 a month to $15 month, and we're now getting confirmation that it's true.

The Solid Wolf, proud owner of a Sprint account and one of the greatest handles since the Bandit, confirms that the $15-a-month PAM pricing is in effect, and that the aforementioned 5-gigabyte cap is still hanging overhead, just as if you were using a Broadband Connect card.

After a quick chat with a customer-service robot representative, it looks like this is a done deal:

Phil: Wanted to check on phone-as-modem pricing. I'd heard that it's down to $15 a month, but that you must already have an account. Is that correct?

Estella S: Your Sprint Power Vision phone can be used as a high-speed Internet connection for your laptop computer anywhere on the Sprint network. Connect your Power Vision phone using a USB cable or the built-in connection on Bluetooth-enabled phones all for just $15 per month with a qualified data plan.

Phil: Is that available with a new plan? Or just plans that are already active?

Estalla S: It is available with a new plan or an existing plan.

Score another point for Sprint, and let's hope the other carriers follow suit. You hear that, AT&T/T-Mobile/Verizon?

And a big howl to The Solid Wolf for the tip!
