Posted by Arne Hess - at 16:51 CET under 02 - Windows Mobile News

Palm, MobileOne and Microsoft today announced the first Asian availability of the new Palm Treo 750v smartphone, bringing for the first time to Asia the hallmark Palm experience on Microsoft Windows Mobile 5.0 over a wireless 3G/UMTS network.

Today, only an estimated 3 percent of business E-Mail inboxes worldwide are accessed via mobile, according to market research firm The Radicati Group. The new Treo 750v will allow Palm to target this large, untapped market with push E-Mail platforms such as Microsoft's Messaging and Security Feature Pack (MSFP), which includes Direct Push Technology and enhanced security features free out of the box. This business-ready solution addresses the need for a robust push-E-Mail platform that can be deployed easily by small businesses to global enterprises.

UTILITY: Microsoft to release new Power Toys for Windows Mobile
Posted by Arne Hess - at 11:38 CET under 02 - Windows Mobile News

How Microsoft admitted itself - during the Möbius conference - it's a while already that the last (free) Power Toys for Windows Mobile were released, in fact it was the Homescreen Designer (or whatever) which is a couple of years old now but so far, there wasn't anything dedicated for Windows Mobile 5.0 devices. While Microsoft isn't releasing another Homescreen designer (yet), they plan to launch something even better - a couple of free Power Toys for your Windows Mobile device itself - namely a Homescreen photo browser and a Homescreen photo dialer.
Inspired by Palm's implementation of the Todayscreen photo dialer, something similar will come soon for Windows Mobile based Smartphones:

UNVEILED: Cingular is testing the Samsung SGH-i607 Windows Mobile Smartphone
Posted by Arne Hess - at 16:28 CET under 02 - Windows Mobile News

Over at HowardForums, a user has posted some photos of a Samsung SGH-i607, the US version of Samsung's recently announced SGH-i600 Windows Mobile UMTS/HSDPA Smartphone.
While the US i607 looks - generally - identical to the European i600, it lacks the front facing camera for video telephony (which makes sense since Cingular isn't supporting UMTS video telephony at the moment).
All the other features looks unchanged, including quadband GSM/GPRS/EDGE and most likely dual- to triband UMTS and HSDPA, Bluetooth and microSD expansion and - that's interesting - a jog wheel on the right side:

Posted by Arne Hess - at 18:24 CET under 02 - Windows Mobile News

And while we are talking about TechFaith Wireless' Pocket PCs, the guys from Pocket PC Hong Kong got another device from the Chinese ODM into their hands - the UBiQUiO 601 which have have seen before as well.
Basically, it's a HTC Universal clone, this might describe it best but unlike HTC's Universal, the UBiQUiO 601 isn't a UMTS device at all (not to think about HSDPA) but just a triband GSM/GPRS device, sporting Bluetooth 1.2 (with support for A2DP Bluetooth stereo) and W-LAN 802.11 b/g.
Powered by Windows Mobile 5.0 for Pocket PC Phone Edition and a TI OMAP 750 CPU, the UBiQUiO 601 features 128 MB ROM and 64 MB RAM which is extendable through miniSD cards. The 2.8" touch screen supports QVGA and the camera is a 2.0 megapixel CMOS:

Posted by Arne Hess - at 18:03 CET under 02 - Windows Mobile News

Do you remember the UBiQUiO 501 from TechFaith Wireless (TFW) which earned some respect when it was previewed first time? Looks like also i-mate felt in love with this device and it looks like the Dubai based Windows Mobile devices reseller is going to launch it, with a little bit updated ID, under its own i-mate brand as "i-mate JAQ3". At least that's what Pocket PC Hong Kong wrote and proves with some interesting and very detailed photos.
All the rest looks quite similar to the original TechFaith Wireless reference design: Equipped with a QWERTY thumb-keyboard and based on Windows Mobile 5.0 for Pocket PC Phone Edition, the JAQ3 supports GSM/GPRS 900/1800/1900 without support for GSM 850 and EDGE, Bluetooth 1.2 with A2DP and WiFi 802.11b/g.

Nevertheless, the i-mate SPL is a great-looking Motorola SLVR-like device that will attract buyers that want a stylish device plus the benefits of the Windows Mobile platform.

NEWS: HP Releases the iPAQ hw6940 in the U.S.
Posted by Alfredo Padilla - at 01:09 CET under 02 - Windows Mobile News

This device has been available in other places for awhile now, but HP has now made it available on their U.S. website. The hw6940 is a Pocket PC device with built in QWERTY keyboard, EGPRS, Wi-Fi and GPS. It's probably one of the most complete mobiles out there today in terms of features, but unfortunately it does not support 3G and it has a terrible 240x240 resolution screen. Still, for those who don't care about such things it's a very nice device, just expect for your wallet to feel a tad lighter as it weighs in at a pricetag of $599.

Today, Samsung has officially announced the Samsung SGH-i600 (code named BlackJack II), the UMTS follower of the SGH-i320, which was also previewed during this week's IFA exhibition in Berlin. Like at the i320, the highlight of the i600 is its BlackBerry-styled thumb-keyboard which mostly addresses business customers.

CONFIRMED: T-Mobile leaves W-LAN out of the T-Mobile MDA compact III
Posted by Arne Hess - at 11:23 CET under 02 - Windows Mobile News

According to the::unwired information, the recently previewed T-Mobile compact III (also known as HTC Artemis) will definitely lack W-LAN support, even if the original HTC reference design of the HTC Artemis has W-LAN b and g onboard.
Yesterday I've spoken with some folks and they've confirmed what we have already seen during T-Mobile's MDA compact III presentation at the IFA.
It's not clear yet, why T-Mobile decided to leave W-LAN (maybe in favor of reduced battery drain, price or weight) but it's definitely a bad decision, if it turns out to be seriously true.

The same user which has posted some blurry photos of the O2 Mars has also posted, over at MyPDACafe.com some blurry photos of the O2 Jupiter.
Unfortunately, he hasn't given any further information yet but the device itself as well as the comparison to other Windows Mobile devices looks interesting enough and with the front facing camera, it seems to be a UMTS device as well:

Well, someone over at MyPDACafe.com has gotten his hands on exactly this device he calls the "O2 Mars".
Looks like the O2 Mars is real and looks like it's a similar device to the O2 Xda trion (aka HTC Hermes) since it's also a UMTS Windows Mobile Pocket PC Phone Edition with a slide out keyboard but it seems to be a different device, not a HTC Hermes:

During this weeks Internationale Funkausstellung/IFA (the international consumer electronics fair) in Berlin, T-Mobile Germany previewed on its own stand the first time it's own (yet unbranded) version of the HTC Artemis which T-Mobile will call T-Mobile MDA compact III.
You remember, the HTC Artemis is a Windows Mobile 5.0 Pocket PC Phone Edition with quadband GSM/GPRS/EDGE and Bluetooth and it's HTC's first Pocket PC Phone Edition which is also sporting an inbuilt GPS receiver.

Interesting enough - even if the original reference design is sporting Wi-Fi - no word about W-LAN from T-Mobile (yet).
Unfortunately, I hadn't have the time to visit the IFA this year, but a user over at the German PPCW-Welt Community forum has posted a couple of photos of the compact III.
