THOUGHT: Deutsche Bahn's MMS Railway Ticket System
Posted by Arne Hess - at 08:27 CET under 09 - Thoughts

I've mentioned Deutsche Bahn's (DB) MMS Ticket some time ago but last weekend, I finally had the chance to test it. As a matter of fact, I was at at my parents and the printer was out of order. This means, I wasn't able to order my ticket over the Internet to print it at home on the PC. However, without a ticket, you cannot make a seat reservation and it's always a good idea to have a seat reservation on German InterCityExpress (ICE) because the German high-speed train can be pretty overcrowded and since I wanted a seat with a table in the mobile phone area, I had to reserve a seat. But what to do if the printer is kaput? Use the mobile phone instead and I remembered my previous article here.

PHOTOVIEW: Giga-Byte GSmart t600 Windows Mobile 6 Professional Smartphone
Posted by Arne Hess - at 00:01 CET under 08 - Reviews

While the Giga-Byte GSmart t600 design is over one year old already, it's still quite stylish, if you like white "iPodish" mobile devices.
The front is glossy white, with a white surface under a clear paint while the backside is white plastic only. In any case, the surface is quite fingerprint resistant and not a magnet at all. However, the t600 still features the old screen technique with a bezel but the 2.6" touchscreen supports a VGA resolution. In addition to the Windows Mobile smartphone typical call and end button, the device features a huge D-Pad which looks like a scroll wheel but isn't a wheel at all. Furthermore it has the Pocket PC typical Start and OK button as well as two soft-buttons under the screen.

UNVEILED: O2 Germany's next Xda Windows Mobile Smartphone is the Xda diamond
Posted by Arne Hess - at 16:04 CET under 02 - Windows Mobile News

While we are still waiting for the official HTC Diamond announcement (most likely we will hear more on May 6), T-Mobile previewed its version of the HTC Diamond, aka the MDA compact IV, during last month's CeBIT in Hanover already. And now O2 Germany followed with a pre-announcement that its next Xda Windows Mobile smartphone will be called "O2 Xda diamond".
So far, O2 only unveiled that its Xda diamond will be black and featuring a big touchscreen as well as HSDPA and GPS. But if it is based on the HTC Diamond, which T-Mobile's MDA compact IV is also expected to be based on, it's somewhat confirmed, that the Xda diamond will also features a 3 megapixel autofocus camera, 4 GB internal memory, a VGA touchscreen and Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional.

Posted by Arne Hess - at 22:50 CET under 08 - Reviews

Following my first contact with Sony Ericsson's Xperia X1 Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional smartphone during the recent Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, recently I had some more quality time with Sony Ericsson's first Windows Mobile device. Nearly everything is said and written about the Xperia X1 but this time, I also had the chance to dive deeper into the device, to record a short video.
The Sony Ericsson Xperia X1 does everything, a state-of-the-art Windows Mobile smartphone is able to provide these days (and even more). It features a slide-out QWERTY keyboard and an ultra fast Qualcomm 7200A CPU at 520 MHz, supports quadband GSM/GPRS/EDGE and triband UMTS/HSDPA/HSUPA as well as Bluetooth 2.0+EDR, WiFi b/g and GPS.

UNVEILED: Upcoming HTC Windows Mobile Smartphones shows their face [UPDATE]
Posted by Arne Hess - at 21:13 CET under 02 - Windows Mobile News

It's widely known already that HTC is holding a global press conference on May 6th to announce something big but so far, it's unknown what HTC is going to announce. Speculation are floating around that it might be HTC's first Android aka Google phone, or it might be some new Windows Mobile smartphones or maybe just HTC's TouchFLO v2 aka "Manila".
In any case, a recently unveiled photo shows three so far - more or less - unknown (most likely) HTC smartphones. While on the top row we see the HTC TyTN II, the HTC Touch Cruise and the HTC Touch, on the lower row we have 2nd from left the HTC P3470 but left and right to it at least 2 unknown devices:

According to German heise online, Vodafone Germany is releasing next month two DVB-T phones, the LG HB620T mobile phone and the - already well known - GIGA-BYTE GSmart t600 Windows Mobile Professional smartphone.

CLEARED: HTC Touch Dual passes the FCC as HTC NEO300
Posted by Arne Hess - at 02:58 CET under 02 - Windows Mobile News

It took a little bit longer (in Europe, the HTC Touch Dual was introduced back in October last year already) but the U.S. will finally get its version of the Touch Dual as well. The HTC NEON300 just cleared the FCC and it will be a real power-horse, featuring Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional which is powered by a 400 MHz CPU which is backed-up by 256 MB ROM and 128 MB RAM.

THOUGHT: Yes - AT&T's Prepaid plans work fine for Mobile Data
Posted by Arne Hess - at 02:02 CET under 09 - Thoughts

Well, some days ago, I've blamed the U.S. carrriers for not offering any prepaid data enabled SIMs for inbound roamers and it turns out, I was wrong. Well, it wasn't just me who was wrong but basically the sales person at AT&T had no clue what he is selling. My fellow MVP and friend Mike Temporale just told me 2 days ago that he is using an AT&T SIM card if he is in the U.S. and that this SIM works perfect for data as well.
As you might can imagine, I was somewhat irritated but he showed me and indeed he was accessing Smartphone Thoughts without any problems, straight from his Windows Mobile smartphone. Furthermore he told me that it doesn't matters which plan you use, either the US$ 100 for one year or the US$ 0.25 per day, both would work.

THOUGHT: Make your Windows Vista Notebook an 'Access Point' in Hotels
Posted by Arne Hess - at 00:09 CET under 09 - Thoughts

Well, there are many reasons why people dislike Windows Vista and which keeps them away from upgrading from Windows XP, and indeed - as Steve Ballmer said in his MVP Global Summit keynote today - "Windows Vista is work in progress". Nevertheless, there are these kind of "hidden" but very usefully features available as well, like setting up a wireless ad hoc network which can be quite useful in hotels.
I'm currently staying at the Westin, downtown Seattle and the Westin offers in-room high-speed Internet access through CAT5 and WiFi. Unfortunately the Westin is charging its "guests" for Internet access.

UTILITY: WMWifiRouter not free anymore but still an interesting option
Posted by Arne Hess - at 19:41 CET under 01 - General News

Back in January, I've posted here about WMWifiRouter which instantly turns a compatible Windows Mobile smartphones (running Windows Mobile 5.0 AKU 3.3 or Windows Mobile 6) with WiFi into a wireless Internet hotspot. It allows you to use WiFi capable devices, such as your your Notebook and other devices, like the iPod Touch, to connect to the Internet through your phone's data connection (similar to Windows Mobile 5.0 and 6 inbuilt Internet Sharing functionality which however works via USB or Bluetooth PAN only).
However, WMWifiRouter isn't freeware anymore now but the developers decided to charge for the final version which is now available:

THOUGHT: T-Mobile U.S. - not a bad option at all for Inbound Roamers
Posted by Arne Hess - at 03:47 CET under 09 - Thoughts

Sure, for more advanced smartphone users in the U.S., T-Mobile might be the worst option to chose since the Seattle-based carrier still lacks support of UMTS, not to talk about HSDPA but for inbound roamers like me, T-Mobile isn't that bad. Especially if you use a smartphone like the Samsung SGH-i600 which supports triband GSM at 900, 1800 and 1900 MHz and singleband UMTS/HSDPA at 2100 MHz only.
Not sure what's wrong with AT&T's EDGE network here in Seattle but I don't get EDGE here (maybe it's available on 850 MHz only?) while T-Mobile's EDGE shows up everywhere:

Posted by Arne Hess - at 02:01 CET under 09 - Thoughts

All right, I've just arrived at Seattle for the annual Microsoft MVP Summit. While I'm normally fine to use my Vodafone WebSessions SIM card for international data roaming, unfortunately Vodafone isn't offering WebSessions in the U.S. because they don't have any GSM/UMTS shares here (but are a shareholder of Verizon Wireless only). Since I will be in Seattle again next month, I've visited AT&T as well as T-Mobile shops to figure out what my prepaid mobile data options are and guess what - there are no options! Unlike most (or all?) European carriers, non of the U.S. carriers offers prepaid SIMs which can be used for real mobile data as well.

Not sure if you have missed me the past days but as you might have noticed, I haven't updated the::unwired. Well, the reason was, as said earlier, that I was the whole week in Israel for the HANDY Tech 2008 to which I was invited by HANDY and PocketPCFreak.com.
In addition to my presentation at HANDY Tech 2008, I've also visited a couple of Israeli start-ups like Modu and Fring and - for sure - I took the time to travel around Israel where I've visited Jerusalem, the Dead Sea and other great places here, just to mention a few.
Just arrived this morning with El Al (but flying El Al is another interesting story), I'm currently on the train to Frankfurt, from where I'm writing this article, to catch my flight tomorrow morning to Seattle where the Microsoft MVP Summit happens next week.

RUMOR: Is the Samsung SGH-i780 coming to the U.S. as the SGH-i788?
Posted by Arne Hess - at 14:33 CET under 02 - Windows Mobile News

Engadget Mobile found a new Samsung phone, listed by the FCC which is called the Samsung SGH-i788. Unfortunately not too much is known yet but remember, Samsung uses "SGH" for GSM and UMTS smartphones while "i" is used for its Windows Mobile and Symbian S60 smartphones. And if you compare FCC's drawing of the SGH-i788 with the SGH-i780, it looks quite similar. Furthermore, while Samsung tried to hide details of the drawing, if you scroll the FFC PDF quite fast, you can see a square camera whole, centered on the top with a speaker right to it (on the left the SGH-i780, on the right the unmasked SGH-i788):
