Posted by Arne Hess - at 17:11 CET under 02 - Windows Mobile News

Are you looking forward to the availability of the new O2 xda with it’s GSM/GPRS support? Than I have a link for you, you will like!

As this interactive Flash 5 demo is from VIAG Interkom, the German subsidiary of mmO2, the whole presentation is in German. Anyway, it gives you a clear overview what the xda will be.

As I was working for VIAG Interkom until 31. September this year as the Busines Developer and Product Manager for the Wireless Internet, I hold the xda in my hands in summer and I must say it’s the killer device for me! :-) Also it makes me very proud that they are still using my mobile Internet portal which II designed for the CeBIT exhibition as a show case for how powerful Pocket PCs are and why they are the right 2.5G/3G devices.

BTW: Please don’t ask me why I left VIAG Interkom and such a cool project I was working on... A man have got to do, what he’ve got to do... ;-)

Enjoy the demo, cheers ~ Arne

BLUETOOH: ActiveSync via Bluetooth?
Posted by Arne Hess - at 03:20 CET under 02 - Windows Mobile News

Well, there is still one thing I'm missing on my Pocket PC/Bluetooth card combo - it's synching wireless via Bluetooth. On Systems last week I spoke with some people who are involved into the Bluetooth development and we was talking about the option Bluetooth already offers today or will provide in near future.

Since I'm missing the Bluetooth support on ActiveSync, I've asked when to expect it and you know what's the answer was? "Not with ActiveSync 3.x". AS 3.x doesn't support virtual COM ports which are necessary for a Bluetooth support on ActiveSync. :-(

This was confirmed by several people and therefore it seems that it is the herb truth... :-( I wonder when will this issue fixed by Microsoft?

WIRELESS: Update of a Smartphone formerly known as Stinger
Posted by Arne Hess - at 19:56 CET under 02 - Windows Mobile News

One of the most interesting presentations for me at m?s 2001 was for sure the Microsoft Stinger update we got. I saw Stinger (which isn't anymore named Stinger because of some trademark conflicts) one year ago in Redmond and since that time Microsoft worked hard on the user interface. It's slightly different from what we saw before, e.g. on last CeBIT. So Microsoft changed the today screen to HTML which allows to personalize the phone even more.

Based on the Windows CE platform (the Stinger platform isn't based on Pocket PC!) Microsoft redeveloped the whole concept totally new when they decided to build a mobile phone core system. This is important to know and remember as Stinger Smartphones aren't Pocket PCs with a keyboard but a totally new developed OS which uses resources and sources from the existing one PDA platforms.
