BEING MOBILE: Keeping updated with Wireless
Posted by Carlo Guerrero - at 19:27 CET under 09 - Thoughts

Normally when we hear the word wireless, we think Wi-Fi, well what I've been thinking of these past several weeks is more of Wi-Fi and WAN, basically the version available here in Asia and Europe which would be GSM/GPRS. If you've noticed my sudden absence, it is not that I've fallen into an endless pit nor did the earth swallow me alive, I've been quite busy with work, actually several jobs that I have found myself in. :-)

While I've been quite busy with my photography, I've been kept updated by my Pocket PC with the latest happenings and news in the mobile computing world...

OPINION: What do you think about the Mobile Version of PPCW.Net
Posted by Arne Hess - at 21:02 CET under 09 - Thoughts

Hmmm... 8O Now I'm a little bit irritated and surprised if it is me or the visitor who mailed me a comment below some minutes ago and I wonder who is wrong here...

Normally I don't push comments like these into public but this time I will do it because I want to hear your opinion but first the E-Mail (without the name and E-Mail address for sure):

THOUGHT: Is you wireless device really protected?
Posted by Arne Hess - at 12:17 CET under 09 - Thoughts

My fellow MVP Chris De Herrera pointed me to that article from CNN called "Threat of mobile virus attack real" which is about viruses on mobile devices and I got additional thoughts when I read it.
Basically the risk of viruses for mobile devices is real - it's the same as for all devices running any kind of open Operating Systems. You can develop viruses for Windows, Linux or Apple Desktops as well as you can do it for Windows CE, Palm or Symbian based mobile devices - sure. It's always a question of market penetration of the OS.

Because of the feature limitation of mobile devices it might be not that risky today to surf the web or open E-Mails on that cell phones but any kind of application you install on your device might contains a harmful code which is at least a virus.

THOUGHT: Being mobile with a Smartphone and Pocket PC Phone Edition only
Posted by Arne Hess - at 12:16 CET under 09 - Thoughts

Last weekend I was away from home (as you might have seen on the missing updates on PPCW.Net) because my brother had Birthday and for some other personal reasons. Because it was planned as a short trip only, I took the xda II and my PPCW.Net i-Mate with me only but no Notebook.

BEING MOBILE: Wireless in the Airport with a Prolink Wi-Fi card
Posted by Carlo Guerrero - at 05:23 CET under 09 - Thoughts

Hello once again and this time from Cebu City in the Philippines. One more thing about being mobile is the total freedom it brings the user of any Windows Mobile device. The subject at hand is the iPAQ h2210 Pocket PC. Thanks to a friend who lent me the Prolink W-Fi card for testing, I was able to connect to the Internet easily and thus post this article.

BEING MOBILE: Putting the power of the Pocket PC to work
Posted by Carlo Guerrero - at 16:10 CET under 09 - Thoughts

As I have mentioned earlier, I am still out of town moving from island to island in the Philippines. Yes, you read that right. While we may be billeted in a hotel in Tagbilaran City, we still had the opportunity to visit several islands today. One of them quite unique as it is a historical landmark and at the same time te recipient of a really wonderful technology.

BEING MOBILE: Hello from Tagbilaran City
Posted by Carlo Guerrero - at 01:52 CET under 09 - Thoughts

As you might notice, It's me this time who isn't around at PPCW.Net. Well, not totally though. I'm still here although I'm not in front of my desktop PC. I think that is what being mobile is all about. At the moment I'm somewhere down south of the Philippines. Around the vicinity where the Visayas meets Mindanao. I'll be here until Saturay working. And if you are wondering what work I'm doing here, it's photography.

THOUGHT: How GSM Carriers (doesn't) develop the Wireless Data segment
Posted by Arne Hess - at 12:13 CET under 09 - Thoughts

GPRS data is only slowly becoming what GSM voice became fast in the early 90s, a must have decision for consumers. I only know a handful people who clearly bought this or that phone because it included GPRS and Bluetooth or an E-Mail client or even a HTML browser. No, today most phones are still sold by brands and price but less because of new features.

An exception might be camera phones but even here the sent MMS compared to sold camera phones is a different story.

However I think most carriers are developing the mobile data market still wrong. We live in an Internet driven world and data access might be the most important today; doesn't matter which ways (bearers) you use to access these data like SMS, MMS, WAP or GPRS; the need is there but in most cases neither the infrastructure nor the proper tariffs are in place.
