THOUGHT: Is mobile/wireless Voice over IP an option for you?
Posted by Arne Hess - at 21:02 CET under 09 - Thoughts

I'm just playing (testing it for the review) with Pocket Presence's Running Voice IP solution in my home environment using my Desktop, my Notebook and My Pocket PCs to communicate (talk) between all the devices and it works pretty well! The sound is fantastic and it's easy to handle and I think about VoIP as an alternative in public W-LAN hotspots to GSM voice.
We have seen a lot of announcements during the past months that even companies like Motorola or Nokia and Siemens announced developments in this area and I wonder how you guys see that future?

Could Voice over IP be an alternative for you I mean let us think about a scenario where you are abroad, you have a broadband Internet connection in your hotel room, could you imagine to use it to make phone calls to your home country?

FUN: How Consumer Infrared equipped Pocket PCs helps you in
Posted by Arne Hess - at 13:02 CET under 09 - Thoughts

You might know this European hotel rooms which includes a TV but no remote control; the business model is pretty easy - you have to rent the RC to switch your TV on. While I fully understand this revenue stream for cheap hotels, I can not accept it for expensive rooms like the one I stayed last week in Cannes. Because the room rent is so horrible expensive during the 3GSM Congress, I shared my room with a good friend and as mostly in France hotel rooms, we had a TV in the living room (no, it wasn't a Suite but an Apartment) but again no remote control.
When I woke up on Wednesday, I was wondering to hear the morning magazine TV show coming out of the TV and you might already know what happened:

DATA Roaming: Traveling abroad - Traveling (dis)connected
Posted by Arne Hess - at 12:02 CET under 09 - Thoughts

When I was abroad the last two weeks in the US and in France I had much time to try wireless data roaming with different options like GPRS, Wi-Fi or even a simple CSD call and it's still frustrating to be forced to stay offline in this connected and Internet focused world.

My flight from Frankfurt in Germany to Seattle had a stop-over in Copenhagen, Denmark and because I forgot to download an attachment from my girlfriend I tried to access my mail-server from my O2 xda. Orange Denmark indicated a "G" on my xda, which means the GPRS service is available and the device is attached to it but there was no way to get a connection.
