Spb Software House today unveiled the release of its brand new Spb Phone Suite, a collection of all the main phone features you've been missing on your Windows Mobile Pocket PC Phone Edition device.
The number of Windows Mobile devices with phone functionality is growing every
day. Almost every Windows Mobile 6 device recently announced includes phone
functionality. However, Windows Mobile Professional is still not a perfect
platform for phone devices which still keeps me away to use my Pocket PCs as my
main mobile phone (but rather prefer Smartphones/Standard devices) by lacking
such cornerstone phone features as profiles, call filtering and missed call
Spb Phone Suite should close some of these gaps by improving the Pocket PC
- Profiles: Profile switching is so much a cornerstone feature of
any phone that it is very strange that this feature is still lacking from
the Professional version of Windows Mobile. Spb Phone Suite profiles not
only control phone setting but also WiFi, Bluetooth and backlight level
seetings. Spb Phone Suite uses automatic profiles to automatically switch
your profiles based upon the situation, like when your headset is plugged
in, or your car kit is connected, or you are in a meeting that you
previously marked in your calendar as "busy", or you can manually configure
a preset time.
- Missed Call Notifications: Spb Phone Suite gives you the option
to have sound notifications upon missed calls or unread SMS messages. This
feature helps you not miss your important calls.
- Reject and Send SMS: Unexpected calls can be really annoying
during meetings. With Spb Phone Suite you can immediately send an SMS with
predefined text with just two taps after you reject a call.
- Photo Speed Dial: With Spb Phone Suite you can place your most
frequently used contacts right on the Today screen. Spb Phone Suite comes
with more than 50 avatars a user can use for photoless contacts.
- Call Filtering: Call filtering is based on the idea of white and
black lists. The call filtering feature has been specially designed for ease
of use. This way a user can add unwanted people to the black list with just
a few taps.
- Other Features: There many other features like photos in the call
log, the wireless manager, and the Today plug-in, etc., that altogether
improve the phone experience and make Windows Mobile almost a perfect
platform for modern phone devices.
Spb Phone Suite is currently available in English, German, French, Italian,
Russian, Traditional Chinese, Czech, Polish, Dutch, Japanese and Thai languages.
Spb Phone Suite is compatible with Windows Mobile 5.0 for Pocket PC Phone
Edition and Windows Mobile 6 Professional devices.
The full version is available for US$ 19.95 USD but Spb Software House is also a
fully functional free 15-day trial version
