OFF-TOPIC: Good bye DM - Welcome 2002 and the Euro
Posted by Arne Hess - at 13:26 CET under 06 - Site News

First of all, I wish you: the friends, contributors, partners and readers of Pocket PC Writer.Net a peaceful happy new year and all the best for 2002. Let your/our dreams come true!

For us Europeans the year 2002 don't brings the new Pocket PC 2002s only but a complete new currency, the Euro = €. After 53 years of trust in and fun with the DM (Deutsche Mark), from tomorrow all people (expect UK, Denmark and Sweden) in the European Union have one mutual currency. Thank you DM, I will miss you - good luck Euro, I will trust you!

Also good luck for everybody who was visiting my site last year! Thanks a lot for all your input and looking forward to see you next year again healthy!

Cheers ~ Arne

WIRELESS: Bluetooth adaptor for Nintendo's Game Boy Advanced
Posted by Arne Hess - at 00:23 CET under 01 - General News

This seems to be a little bit off-topic for a Pocket PC site but at least it's also about wireless. I left the Game Boy age for around 10 years now but I like to see what I've read:

Through internal research and customer feedback, nReach has developed an "add-on" to the Nintendo Game Boy platform. This proprietary hardware product will allow a user to interact wirelessly with a retailer (i.e. Blockbuster) allowing them to receive messages, download trial games, and play against other players within a 10-100 meter area

THOUGHT: Why GPRS is so interesting even if a wired connection is available
Posted by Arne Hess - at 17:50 CET under 09 - Thoughts

Most of you access the Internet wired, like me. At home, in Munich, I have a DSL connection with a flat rate. This means that my PC is running the whole day and Outlook is getting the E-Mails every 5 minutes. Actually, between the years, I'm at my parents in Frankfurt. Thank God, my parents have ISDN, so I can access the Internet here fast enough for my daily work but they don't have a flat rate which means I have to dial-in to an ISP. Unfortunately most German ISPs takes a dial-in fee of some Cents every time you connect and mostly I connect some seconds only to get my E-Mails. This means I pay for nothing if there are no interesting new E-Mails...

But thankfully I have also my Pocket PC and my GPRS with me! This means I can stay connected to the Internet (incl. MSN Messenger)

REVIEW: TT Tech SnapNType mini keyboard for Compaq iPAQ H3600/3700
Posted by Arne Hess - at 21:21 CET under 08 - Reviews

Thanks to TT Tech - Hong Kong, yesterday I got my reviewers sample of this new mini keyboard for the Compaq iPAQ. Originally it was designed for the H3600 series Pocket PCs but connects also with the H3700 iPAQs. The SnapNType keyboard seems to be the first clip-on keyboard for the iPAQ which is available. Currently TT Tech speaks about the availability in: US, UK, Korea and (for sure) Hong Kong.

What's the SnapNType?
If you are an Ericsson mobile phone user you may know the Ericsson Chat Board. This keyboard can be attached to the mobile phone to enter SMS messages more convenient. The SnapNType is in the same tradition, it's not (it can not be by it's size) a full featured keyboard like the Targus foldable keyboards which can be used with ten fingers; the SnapNType is a typical thumbs keyboard. It lets you enter short messages or texts without using the soft keyboard of your Pocket PC. Using the SnapNType keyboard, you can write E-Mails, notes and enter any kind of data into your iPAQ. It is small, light and compact enough allowing

UNWIRED HOME: Cutting the wires at home
Posted by Arne Hess - at 12:52 CET under 09 - Thoughts

As a wireless guy, I try to cut all wires, doesn't matter if for my mobile devices like Bluetooth connections between Pocket PCs and mobile phones or reducing all the cable stuff at home. At least, the only cable I will accept is the antenna cable of my TV... ;-)

Well, thanks to a friend I got my new wireless environment for my home PC yesterday, the Logitech Cordless Freedom Optical. I love the Logitech stuff, I'm using there mice since I've got my first PC mouse and the last one I had was the Cordless MouseMan Wheel. So it was clear for me that I will cut the keyboard cable as well anytime. Yesterday was the time and "threw" away my wired keyboard. Wow, I love the new keyboard, it's not only wireless but also have great functionalities with it's additional wheels and shortcut keys. That's comfortable.

Okay, so far so good - typing on the keyboard is is smooth (I will enjoy it while I'm writing my second book now) and I thought,

BLUETTOTH: Toshiba SD Bluetooth card available in Japan
Posted by Arne Hess - at 13:31 CET under 01 - General News

How Ludipocket reports, the Toshiba SD Bluetooth Card is out in Japan since December 20 and it is available for 19,800 yens ($153). As Ludipocket also reports, the card seems to be exclusive use for Genio. I’m not sure now how they figured it out (I have to translate the press release later today from Japanese to English) but it would makes me wonder if Toshiba SD cards will offer the card for Toshiba Pocket PCs only since the addressable market is very small. At least it’s a question of drivers only and the Genio runs on a StronARM CPU as all other Pocket PC 2002 too.

I hope to see the Bluetooth card for other Pocket PC 2002 devices soon too or an OEM card from other manufactures... ;-)

There are so many discussions about Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, GSM and GPRS that Jerome Neuveglise from my2cents.info and PocketMovies.net got the great idea to launch a dedicated wireless forum.

MySQL: Database problems on Pocket PC Writer.Net [UPDATE: 12.12.01]
Posted by Arne Hess - at 15:50 CET under 06 - Site News

Seems I have some problems with my database. Some articles, like the latest Ericsson 3G article have PHP error messages and I wonder if I’ve reached the storage limit!? Thank you for your patience I will try to figure out as soon as possible what’s going on there. Not affected are older articles!

Cheers ~ Arne

Jo, back in business! I had some problems with the caching functionality of my Web Log system I’m using. This caches pages by itself and therefore it wasn’t necessary for the system to access the SQL server all the time to get a page. However, this functionality is still Beta and died now. Therefore I disabled page caching (on the server side) and everything works fine again. Also I don’t see any differences on the performance...

Anyhow, glad to be back again and now I can work on my articles again, while I was investigating the performance problem only the whole day yesterday.

WIRELESS: Have a look of the 3G services of tomorrow
Posted by Arne Hess - at 08:36 CET under 09 - Thoughts

While I surfed around the Ericsson web site because I was looking for some information on WCDMA/CDMA2000 and others I found this Flash animation of Ericsson's "3VOLUTION":

One of the most exciting aspects of Mobile Internet is that it opens up such vast potential for so many different uses. Even though the technology to support Mobile Internet is still in its infancy, initial ideas are quickly evolving into real commercial services. And once 3G comes along, with its ability to support a rich array of multimedia, interactive content, the sky's the limit.

Who knows what the future holds? It will probably be full of useful and fun services that have not been dreamt of - yet. But we can try to guess the types of services that people will be able to - and want to

QUALITY: The Ericsson T68 - four weeks old and just useless [UPDATE: 11.12.01]
Posted by Arne Hess - at 22:40 CET under 09 - Thoughts

Well, I wrote a lot about the Ericsson T68: I love it and I hate it. I love it for the features, no other GSM phone offers so many features like the T68: Bluetooth, GPRS, HSCSD, colored display, a real cool stand-by time and all within a very nice shaped design. On the other side, there was the speed - e.g. on text-input with T9 or the the whole speed of using the phone in general. Also the "No" key didn't work proper the first week but anyway, it did its job later. But yesterday evening it happened: the slider on the left side, which is used for the speaker volume, the phone status and scrolling of WAP sides and SMS broke. I don't know if it is the plastic only or the whole switch but it doesn't works or is fixed anymore. Means it is useless now.

Well, for good reasons Microsoft specified the Intel StrongARM processor as the standard CPU for Pocket PC 2002 devices but do you know which CPU mobile phones use?
Jeff from Intel sent me this interesting background information for your attention:

Arne,

DoCoMo, like most cellular phone manufacturers and carriers, focus on size and battery life when describing the features of their phones.  Therefore, it is a little known fact that the NEC N2001/N2002 FOMA phones utilize the Intel StrongARM SA-1110
