COLUMN: The tiny little gadgets no one should miss on fairs
Posted by Arne Hess - at 18:05 CET under 09 - Thoughts

Back from CeBIT I reinvestigated for myself what saved my daily life, using a Pocket PC and a GPRS enabled mobile phone on my trip. It’s always the same on trips like that, you carry a lot of gadgets with you while you will use at least only a handful. Here is my personal top 10 list what I will never miss in future again, if I’m going on one week trips like CeBIT or any other conventions:

CEBIT 2002: Stay connected wireless in Hannover using W-LAN and GPRS
Posted by Arne Hess - at 11:19 CET under 09 - Thoughts

If you still plan to go to CeBIT this year, realy don't forget to take your Wireless LAN card with you. The - by Mobilcom and Cisco - provided coverage and speed is more than enough to access the web from almost everywhere on the CeBIT area.
When I uploaded the news to PPCW.N last week, I took the Mobilcom W-LAN all the time. It supports HTTP, FTP, SMT and POP3 so you will not miss any service you used to use on your home desktop. On this place I want to give Mobilcom a big thank you for providing this free of charge service! It was perfect and you saved my life. The W-LAN is also accessible with your Pocket PC and Mobilcom uses a proxy server to optimize the pages for the PDA access. The results aren't as bad as you may

MOBILE PRESENTATION: Can you spot the difference?
Posted by Arne Hess - at 18:49 CET under 09 - Thoughts

Since I've tested the the Margi Presenter-to-Go card I'm really impressed of its possibilities. Therefore I did some deeper investigations how it works in real life environments. Specially I'm fascinated to use it with a video projector instead using a more expensive Notebook.

Thanks to Compaq I got one of its fantastic iPAQ projectors - the iPAQ MP2810. The most important for me was to see how presentations looks with this high-end projector using a Notebook versus an iPAQ. So I made some sample presentations to compare it by myself and also my Girlfriend had a look which presentation is running on which device. She uses projectors in her job near daily, so she was the perfect test candidate. Here are the results.

The 2 pictures below are real photos I made while I used the iPAQ MP2810 video projector. Can you spot any differences? I'm sure you can't.

THOUGHT: Expanding the wireless chat capabilities or "How do you want to chat wireless?"
Posted by Arne Hess - at 13:35 CET under 09 - Thoughts

Since yesterday, I have my new iPAQ H3870 with Bluetooth in my hands (yes, it took a little bit longer to get it but finally... ;-) and yes – the most important for me is the Bluetooth functionality of this iPAQ. However, since I'm playing with Bluetooth I miss one feature and now I know how it should looks like:

It is clear, that Bluetooth will become the common connection interface for Pocket PCs (see also my interview with Martin Croome from Socket Communications) and while every Pocket PC will have Bluetooth in the future – which can be used to share contacts, etc) there is no application which allows me to use my Pocket PC to communicate with other Bluetooth enabled Pocket PC users today. I mean a kind of standardized IM via Bluetooth, not propriety applications designed for a dedicated Bluetooth card only.

MULTIMEDIA: While we are talking about MMS...
Posted by Arne Hess - at 13:57 CET under 09 - Thoughts

Well, in the previous article I wrote about MMS with my Ericsson T68 and at the same time I got a real Multimedia Message from Japan, where a friend of mine – a 3G Product Manager – currently is.

He used his FOMA P2101V video phone to snap a picture of himself and sent it, including a short notice, from his phone to my E-Mail account:

That’s cool, that’s fancy, that’s the future! I love this kind of services which I call "enhanced personal messaging services" and I think this kind of services are the future. For sure SMS will still alive, specially if I have to transport basic messages like “My lovely girlfriend! I will come later as I will go for some drinks with my friends"; I don’t need to attach any pictures of myself at all but the reply with an attached image of a “Smith and Wesson" could force me to skip joining the evening with my friend and coming back home... ;-)
No, to be serious: I think there are situations where attaching photos will become so useful and even video telephony could becomes a hype with wireless technologies.

But for now, I’m more than jealous of these technologies – already available in Japan...
