UTILITY: SD Card On/Off Switch for HTC Voyager
Posted by Arne Hess - at 11:20 CET under 02 - Windows Mobile News

Do you remember the SD card problems which seems to be the reason for the weak stand-by time of the HTC Voyager (aka i-Mate Smartphone2/Orange E200)? So far, the only workaround was to leave the SD card and dummy out of the device - to save battery power.

Now, "MrMagoo" uploaded a utility to MoDaCo which might offers a better workaround by disabling/enabling the SD card, while it is in the slot:

LEAKED: More Motorola MPx220 and MPx300? photos available
Posted by Arne Hess - at 10:55 CET under 02 - Windows Mobile News

CoolSmartPhone.com got their hand to more Motorola MPx220 Smartphone photos and unlike the previous Flash file, these pictures looks like real photos from a press release we might see next week in Cannes (where I'm going to also).
The photos below shows the MPx220 in two different color versions - black and silver (while I would prefer the silver one). Interesting is the photo, CoolSmartPhone.com announced as MPx300 Smartphone because it includes a stylus and a QWERTY keyboard. Therefore I wouldn't bet to see this device (if for real) released as Smartphone but maybe as Pocket PC Phone Edition or something completely different and non Windows CE related what I don't think because it seems to includes a key with the Windows logo and, maybe more important, an "ok" key which looks like the typical "ok" symbol on Pocket PCs!

While in North America, Bluetooth is still not established and often predicted to fail while for Europeans it's even more important than Wi-Fi:
