SNAPPINESS: HTC fine-tune TouchFLO 3D for better performance
Posted by Arne Hess - at 21:17 CET under 02 - Windows Mobile News

I've just received some good news from HTC. While the general feedback about TouchFLO 3D was very positive, most of you might have noticed, especially in the videos available on the::unwired and the Internet, that here and there TouchFLO 3D wasn't as responsive as it was expected to be. TouchFLO 3D is a brand-new HTC product and it's not just a Today screen plug-in but it's HTC's new GUI philosophy which is a central key for HTC's upcoming Windows Mobile devices. Nevertheless, TouchFLO 3D, on an HTC Touch Diamond (which is the first smartphone which carries TouchFLO 3D) wasn't - performance-wise - what most of us expected and HTC is fully aware of this and was heavily improving the performance during the past days and weeks.

Posted by Arne Hess - at 12:23 CET under 02 - Windows Mobile News

If you don't have a Windows Mobile 6.1 smartphone, you most likely don't have threaded SMS except if you have one of the Palm Treo Windows Mobile smartphones. However, for Windows Mobile 5.0 Professional and Windows Mobile 6 Professional users, VITO Technology has just released a new version of SMS-Chat which lets you organize your SMS correspondence into threaded SMS conversations; and the new version now has smilies. Furthermore, phone numbers, hyperlinks or E-Mails addresses that you receive in SMS are now more usable as you can simply click it and the necessary application with the data will be called out then. SMS-Chat users who liked the bright skin will now have an opportunity to choose the skin they've got used to.
