Well, as you might notice, there seems to be a slow down in PPCW.Net. But the truth is, there has been so many things happening. Last Thursday, a group from the MoDaCo Forum wanted to meet up and the main discussion tackled in the meeting was, "What's with the new ROMs for the Smartphone."

For those who are running the new PPCW.Net i-Mate ROM, you might have noticed that there are loads of improvements and really cool features which we've always wanted Microsoft to include in them. Well, apparently there were some which weren't even documented for us users.

We ended up with a fairly small group of ten attendees, all armed with Tanagers and a Laptop. Of course we ventured into looking at the shortcomings of the previous ROM, and flashing some of the Smartphones with the new improved PPCW.Net i-Mate ROM.

Well you can see some of us here, I'm second from right.

So far these are the things we noticed, in addition to the noted improvements of a working Character/SMS counter and the ability to send SMS to landline numbers as well as other phone numbers in the Contacts list, it seems that you can easily add "p" for pause and "w" for wait when inserting a number into a Contacts list. Also, a cool feature which eeryone has been waiting for is the ability to delete messages in bulk by folder. Yes, it is now possible even without DAT SMS Tools.

Of course the Tasks Application is now more useful though not useful as that of the Pocket PC's yet.

Anyway, that was Thursday, then there is Friday, yet another hectic day which means I missed posting anything here. My apologies for that, but out of that event comes a whole list of things to talk about.

It was the HP presentation during our PinoyPocketPC Mobility Event. Of course, we had Wowie Wong of HP Philippines doing the presentation for the whole new iPAQ range and he even hinted of several new products from HP that will be coming sometime in the future (although no details were given). :-) Anyway, I did the opening remarks for that event and I did a presentation on the new features of the Windows Mobile 2003 Software for Pocket PC. This was the fun part because I had Pocket Slides installed and I had Margi's latest WM2003 drivers for the Presenter-to-Go CF card which I used for the presentation. It's just lovely when you can do your presentation with such a small device such as an HP iPAQ 2210 with the Margi Presenter-to-Go CF card coupled to a projector.

Well, if you can see the screen, that's the slideshow I'm running with my HP iPAQ 2210.

This Monday and Tuesday, Philippine time, I'll be on a business trip, but I'll be armed with my Pocket PC and Smartphone, so that means I can stay intouch and even update PPCW.Net. So watch out for m next posts which will be done wirelessly.

Mabuhay! ~ Carlo
