Facebook App for Windows Mobile (Finally!)

Facebook App for Windows Mobile (Finally!)

Head on over to http://faceofmobile.com/ to get yourself a copy of FriendMobilizer, a 3rd party app that finally brings Windows Mobile up to par with BlackBerry and (cough) the Palm Centro on the social network scene. FriendMobilizer is a fairly full featured Facebook app, covering messages, profiles, wall posts, status updates, etc. It's not clear if it supports photo uploads, however.

It's ad-supported, it's not the prettiest thing you've ever seen, but it's a smidge better than the Facebook mobile website, eh?

HTC Diamond CDMA Specs Revealed

HTC Diamond CDMA Specs Revealed

When we told you that the CDMA Diamond was going to hit Telus in Canada, our greatest fear is that it would drop WiFi support like the original Touch did. Glory be, that's not the case, WiFi stays. Telus has finally posted up the specs on the their version of the Touch Diamond and we are well pleased:

  • 101mm x 51mm x 14mm
  • EVDO Rev A
  • WiFi, Bluetooth 2.0
  • Qualcomm MSM 7510A Processor running at 528MHz
  • 256 ROM, 256 RAM, 4 Gigs internal (no expansion)
  • Includes Telus Navigator software and Opera 9.5 for the broswer
  • Camera is still 3.2mp, screen is still 640x480
  • The battery gets a big bump: it's 1340 mAh

All in all, the processor and RAM look like they're hefty enough to handle TouchFLO 3D, EVDO REV A + WiFi look like this thing will be speedtastic, and the battery is big enough to handle it all. Sprint, Verizon: get this on your network ASAP. Telus: ditto.

Motorola Q9 (insert letter here) "Napolean" for Verizon = Awesome

12

So though ol' Moto seems to be having problems, Dieter and I are at least pretty big fans of the Q9 series and leave it to Verizon to be readying the mother of all Q9s (hmm..perhaps Q9 Alpha?).

Get this: world phone version with Wifi.

BGR managed to not only scoop the details but take 6 million high quality photos of the darn thing, which has got to irk Verizon just a wee bit.

As Lord Vader would say, the specs are "...most impressive" (too dorky?)

  • Windows Mobile 6.1
  • EV-DO Rev. A
  • Quad-band EDGE (!)
  • Fingerprint scanner (!)
  • 2 megapixel camera with flash
  • Stereo speakers
  • 320

Sprint Touch 6.1 Upgrade Targeted “1st Part of July”

0

We already know that the Windows Mobile 6.1 upgrade for the Sprint Touch is due any minute - the unofficially official ROM leak told us that much. Now we know a bit more -- a post in the Sprint Application Developers forum (by way of Gear Diary) spills the beans: “first part of July” is the target. The improvements are about what you'd expect from a full Windows Mobile 6.1 upgrade with GPS support, though we suppose it's worth mentioning that EDVO Rev A, a new communications manager, and “2 icons for rotating the screen” on HTC's launcher will also be included.

'Course, being who we are, now all we want to know is when Sprint will catch up with their neighbors to the north and bring us the HTC Diamond.

CDMA-Flavored HTC Diamond to Hit Canada on Telus “Later This Summer” for $149 CAD

0

Any doubters who weren't convinced by the blurry image of the HTC Diamond on Sprint should take heed: the Diamond is hitting North America in CDMA and it's hitting hard. First up appears to be Canadian CDMA network Telus, who's going to be selling the device “this summer” for the reasonable(ish) price of $149.99 (Canadian) with 3-year contract.

Even better, they're beating the pants off ne'er do well competitor Rogers by offering reasonable data rates: $15 for unlimited email and IM, $30 for unlimited email, IM, Web, etc.

As you can see from the image at right, this CDMA Diamond isn't a carbon copy of its GSM brother -- it has more curved top and bottom edges and the d-pad looks to be a bit different as well. Actually, it bears a striking resemblance to the European T-Mobile MDA Compact IV. We're waiting to hear if the specs have changed significantly. Here's to hoping that WiFi stays, because we wept when the original HTC Touch lost WiFi as it made the jump from GSM to CDMA

More details at Telus' site once they toss up the little wonder.

Everybody Who's Ever Made a Touchscreen Device Gets Sued

0

Ah, summer. A time for basking in the sun, taking (now painfully expensive) roadtrips, and suing the everloving crap out of anybody and everybody you can think of. That's what Typhoon Touch Tech and Nova Mobility systems think, anyway; they've filed suit against pretty much every darn touchscreen manufacturer on the face of the dearth, from Apple to HTC to Samsung. You might just want to check the lawsuit to see if you're named there too, dear reader, because the list is long. The patents are for “Portable Computer with Touch Screen” and the plaintiffs contend that the infringements are “willful” (read: extra bad) because the defendants should have known about the patents; or did know; or whatever.

The best part? Typhonn Tech exists solely to create just this sort of excitement. When the 2nd link in your header is “licensing & litigation highlights,” you might be a redneck patent holding firm.

Where do you suppose these lawsuits were filed? Do we really even have to tell you? Yes, you guessed it: in East Texas' rocket docket.

Touch-screen lawsuits hit Apple, HTC, Dell, Toshiba, others [via PocketPC Thoughts]

Toshiba Portege G810: Hello, goodbye ...

Toshiba Portege G810: Hello, goodbye ...

We had high so-so hopes for the Toshiba Portege G810, with SPB's Mobile Shell built into the interface from the get-go, and Pocket Plus and Full Screen Keyboard thrown in for good measure.

But Pocket Now has run the device through its paces. And while the guts of the G810 are still nothing to sneeze at (and you gotta love the lights), a lack of tactile feel from physical buttons and beyond sub-par battery life are cited as reasons to pass on this one, especially with a $700 price tag.

Read the full, extensive review here.

Updated: Rumor: Sprint PDA Data plans increasing July 13th? False.

3

Sprint finally responded to the brooha of confusing and contradicting information floating around regarding reported plan changes. They state rather unequivocally that they have no plans to change requirements for those lucky enough to have SERO accounts, regardless of device type (pda, smartphone, etc.) and they won't be changing that in the future.

Phew!

Samsung i740: Low End Slab, Wacky Dialwheel

Samsung i740: Low End Slab, Wacky Dialwheel

The Samsung i740 just got profiled over at Czech site mobil.cz (translated here, by way of SlashPhone), and it's nothing to get too worked up over. It's just a standard Quad-Band Edge phone with WiFi, GPS, FM Radio, and no physical keyboard. No 3G here folks (and given the low-end specs, quite likely no US release either).

What is interesting is that dial-pad where our standard d-pad belongs. We're famously unhappy with the Samsung i780 and i788's touchpad, so we're not holding out hope that this thing is anything too innovative, either. Also, if it really is a rotary dial, that's pretty cool for scrolling up and down, but it doesn't look like you could press for left or right. Turns out moving left and right with the d-pad is something we do all the time.

HTC Diamond Pro: Impress your Friends, Bludgeon your Enemies

13

As we move closer to the second coming of the HTC Touch Diamond series (that is, the "Pro" aka "Raphael"), some pics and vids are leaking out.

One thing that is becoming clear: the Pro version is quite, ahem, thick.

Sure, the specs say it's the same thickness of the HTC Mogul and Tilt (~18.5mm) and it's actually less wide than those devices...but darn it all, just watch the vid after the jump and ask yourself...are you thin enough? Well are ya?

AT&T's WinMo roadmap for the rest of the year

Lookie, lookie. Someone's got their hands on the roadmap of upcoming devices for AT&T.

What you can expect later this year, in the fourth quarter:

New Pantech Duo:

  • Windows Mobile SP 6.1
  • Tri-band HSDPA (3.6)/Quad-band EDGE
  • 528 MHz Processor
  • 128MB RAM
  • 256MB ROM
  • USB, Bluetooth 2.0
  • Micro SD
  • 2 MP Camera
  • GPS

The current Pantech Duo will get a WinMo 6.1 upgrade in October.

Samsung Blackjack 2: Upgrade to 6.1 sometime this month.

Motorola Q9H: Upgrade to 6.1 sometime this month.

Samsung Blackjack 3 (the i788):

  • Windows Mobile SP 6.1
  • Tri-band HSDPA (3.6); Quad-band EDGE
  • 528 MHz processor
  • 128MB RAM/ 256MB ROM
  • Camera 3 MP
  • AGPS
  • VSC
  • WiFi

AT&T Tilt: Upgrade to 6.1 sometime this month.

AT&T Tilt 2:

  • Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional Edition
  • Tri-band HSDPA (3.6); Quad-band EDGE

Also: Another Samsung device in the fourth quarter, possibly the Omnia.

Bad news for Palm fans: The Treo 750 is specifically mentioned as NOT getting an upgrade to WinMo 6.1. No mention yet of the upcoming Treo 850, but that's not too big of a surprise.
