Windows 6.5 For Cellphones Seems Real Nice

(I need a new phone)

WinMoblie 6.5

(interesting)

There is a video review on Engadget and if you are interested you  should take a look. Windows did push the envelope with this one, but it doesn’t beat HTC’s TouchFlo.  At least the window face is more customizable.

Some cool things about WindowsMobile:

  • New Today screen: Though the “classic” Today screen is still available, 6.5 introduces an all-new version that somewhat closely approximates the Zune’s home screen experience (whether that’s a harbinger of things to come remains to be seen). Perhaps more than any other single feature, the new Today screen gives 6.5 a freshened look — but ironically, many users will never see it because it’s often replaced by a manufacturer customization (in HTC’s case, TouchFLO).
  • “Honeycomb” Start screen: The main menu of old — a white screen with a grid of boring, old icons — looked like a relic of Windows 3.1. Happily, it’s gone here, replaced with a themed alternating list of thoroughly modern images for default apps. The Start menu is gone, too — pressing the Windows icon in the upper left of the screen now leads straight to the new Start screen.
  • Finger-friendly UI elements: Windows Mobile’s notorious for being unable to shake the stylus, but 6.5 makes some additional baby steps to help fingertips do all of the work — inertial scrolling in many screens and a redesigned context menu style both help here.
  • New lock screen: Though not revolutionary, Microsoft put a commendable amount of thought into this one — instead of merely settling to give the user one way to get back into their device, 6.5’s lock screen gives you multiple points of entry depending on the current status; if you’ve got a new text message, for example, you get a separate unlock slider that can take you straight to it.

And other new additions include a revamped internet explorer, windows marketplace, and exclusive content… whatever that is…

(just in case you wanted to see this…. Longest Windows 6.5 Review Ever)

These HTC phones are looking really good

Last week there was a big blow out of new phone releases. This is NOT one of them, but is one of the newer cell technologies that is one its way to our hands. Engadget gets its hands on it and the video is pretty interesting. So is WinMobile 6.5. I personally want the AT&T Tilt2 (aka the HTC TouchPro 2… its the same phone) since I have AT&t but I was looking forward to leaving them at the end of my contract…. so it looks like I will be buying the phone at full price.

Lets hope its worth it, because if it isn’t it will be going right back to the store.

Quote from Engadget about the phone:

HTC’s just announced HD2 — also known as the Leo. It’s got exactly the same specs we just heard about: a 4.3-inch WVGA capacitive display, a 1GHz MSM8250 Snapdragon processor, integrated FM radio, a 5-megapixel camera, Bluetooth 2.1, and a 3.5mm headphone jack. They found this Windows Mobile 6.5 baby to be elegant and light feeling in the hand, the touchscreen to be responsive and quick, and HTC’s Sense UI beautiful. The phone’s also quite snappy, and we have to say we can’t wait to get our hands on one ourselves

Its probably only a matter of time before it gets here.

Apple 3.0 + iPhone 3G S = Superman (Apparently)

(truth, justice, and a American version of the iPhone 3GS)

It looks like people are waiting for the new release of the next update for the iPhone and iPod touch. I am currently uploading the update now and (changed my mind after reading that there are problems with downloading… I will just wait till all the other people do their thing) hope that something I bought (NIKE+ Running Tracker) works with the update (which I doubt becuase I don’t have a second generation iPod touch). Anyway the reviews are fast and furious. Gizmodo has one and I am sure TechCrunch will too.

You know, I have yet to do any reviews of the devices I currently own, want to own, or I am thinking about testing out. I don’t have many phones but I sure to want to do a in depth review of the phones, gadgets and computer hardware and software that I have purchased (in particular some of the things I have purchased for my business)…. I have said all of that to say one thing

THE HTC TOUCH HD is AWESOME!!!

Well at least from a distance.

I Like The Look Of This Phone: ITG xpPhone

xpPhone

(as you can see, this is pretty)

If this actually is a real phone (too lazy currently to read the whole article on MobileCrunch), I think I would like to try it out. I am not too sure how the keyboard would really feel but the buttons seem to be pretty far away from each other so it should be easy to type. I personally like actual keyboards more than the virtual ones such as the iPhone and Blackberry Storm but if they do improve on the virtual keyboard like what one person thinks, then maybe I will think about it.

Still, this is one good looking phone.
