UNVEILED: Leaked Firmware shows T-Mobile US HTC HD2 Support and Updated HTC Sense
Posted by Arne Hess - at 18:02 CET under 02 - Windows Mobile News

A recently leaked HTC HD2 ROM unveiled that it is designed for T-Mobile US which seems to proof that the HTC HD2 is indeed coming to the USA, as HTC confirmed earlier. At least the boot screen shows T-Mobiles "stick together" claim which isn't used by T-Mobile in Europe but in the US only. Furthermore the ROM is also featuring an updated HTC Sense UI which now sports a new "Documents" tab as well as an updated "Music" player tab. The Documents tab seems to have direct access to Windows Mobile's "My Documents" folder and previews Microsoft Office as well as PDF files and opens a selected document with the appropriate application. Also improved is the music library page which now shows songs by artist, straight from the artist page as well as songs, straight from the album page.

Posted by Arne Hess - at 15:25 CET under 02 - Windows Mobile News

In a recent posting at its official Sony Ericsson Xperia blog, Sony Ericsson now confirmed that the company's second Windows Mobile smartphone, the Xperia X2, is delayed until early next year or more precise first week of January 2010. While it's said that the (Windows Mobile?) software works fine, Sony Ericsson faced some issues when the company started to integrate it with some of the network specific apps which needs to be fixed now. According to the blog posting, it's all minor tweaks but also includes extending the battery life and speeding up aspects of the software but Sony Ericson wants to be sure that when the Xperia X2 is shipped, this it is as good as it should be.

CONFESSION: Windows Mobile 7 not to be released before late 2010
Posted by Arne Hess - at 17:53 CET under 02 - Windows Mobile News

In a Q&A session at the recent "Connect!" technology summit in London, Microsoft UK head of mobile Phil Moore admitted that with its iPhone, Apple entered the market with a fresh approach that holds sway in the consumer market still and continued that Microsoft is currently playing catch-up in the market with Apple: "We're still playing catch-up. When Apple came on to the scene a couple of years ago, it threw away the rulebook and reinvented it. We unfortunately don't have that luxury. It's true, Apple caught us all napping. It launched something that was very iconic, new and unseen with a very good user interface."

FIX: HTC releases Camera bug-fix for the HTC HD2
Posted by Arne Hess - at 14:56 CET under 02 - Windows Mobile News

As it turned out it wasn't a hardware defect of the HTC HD2 camera at all but a software fault "only" which wasn't related to Windows Mobile at all but related to HTC's own software. When the HTC HD2 was released, it had a nasty bug where photos, taken with the smartphone's 5 megapixel camera, either got a pink spot in the center of the photo or - in worst case - photos were completely pink (see bellow). However, with HTC's latest software fix, which HTC released yesterday, it's expected that the problem is solved and as HTC describes it the "HTC HD2 (finally) delivers clear digital picture quality like never before. Living up to the name of "HD" this phone and its twin LED flash will take beautiful pictures for you to cherish your memories.".

LEAK: HTC's expected Q1/Q2 2010 Windows Mobile Phone Roadmap hits the Web
Posted by Arne Hess - at 10:58 CET under 02 - Windows Mobile News

In addition to HTCs expected Android roadmap for the 1st half of 2010, in the global meeting in Vienna, HTC also presented its Windows Mobile Windows phone roadmap to T-Mobile.
And like the Android roadmap, it's not yet clear how much the Windows Mobile presentation reflects HTC's upcoming GSM/UMTS roadmap but again it's clear that this can't reflect HTC's North American CDMA roadmap of Windows phones. In any case, while HTC seems to assign its upcoming Android smartphones to the Design, Performance and Social categories, Windows Mobile smartphones are assigned to the Productivity category only.

But, with yesterday's release of Google Maps Mobile 3.3 for Windows Mobile and Symbian phones, it's now possible to keep the starred/favorite places completely synchronized between smartphones and computers. Basically it allows to plan a trip or route at home and having all the favorite spots by hand during the journey.
