THOUGHT: Where is Palm's announced Windows Mobile 6 upgrade for the Treo 750?
Posted by Arne Hess - at 18:10 CET under 09 - Thoughts

Following my earlier rant about HTC's Windows Mobile 6 upgrade availability I got a good amount of E-Mails where you guys asked where Palm's Treo 750 Windows Mobile 6 upgrade is and to be honest - I have no clue. One thing is for sure - it exists and during the 3GSM World Congress it was announced by Microsoft as well as later by Palm to be available later this year.
Well, half of the year is gone already and still now word from Palm if it will be released and when. Sure, the Windows Mobile 6 upgrade would add some great value to the Treo 750 which is a great messaging device and since Windows Mobile 6 includes support for HTML mail as well as Windows Live Messenger - it could be the perfect combination:

THOUGHT: Where are HTC's promised Windows Mobile 6 upgrades?
Posted by Arne Hess - at 15:21 CET under 09 - Thoughts

Back in April, HTC said it plans to provide free Windows Mobile 6 upgrades for a couple of Windows Mobile 5.0 Pocket PC Phone Editions and Smartphones and as the June is going to pass bye, I wonder where the (official) upgrades are?
Initially, HTC said "The upgrades will be rolled out from June, in line with the operator partners' strategies" but while a couple of carriers have released "their" upgrades already (for instance T-Mobile US for the T-Mobile Dash and O2 Germany for the Xda orbit) original HTC Device owners are still awaiting the releases for their HTC S620 and HTC P4350.

THOUGHT: Where is Soapbox for Windows Mobile?
Posted by Arne Hess - at 21:06 CET under 09 - Thoughts

No, I'm really not a blind "Microsoft fan boy" and therefore I sometimes wonder how Microsoft works? The biggest software manufacture has everything in place to offer successful and integrated services: a Desktop OS (aka Windows XP/Vista), a mobile device OS (aka Windows Mobile) and a couple of web service (aka MSN and/or Windows Live).
Now, a newcomer in the GSM world comes around the corner (aka Apple with its iPhone) with its (much anticipated and maybe over-hyped) iPhone and says the "mysterious" 12th button of the menu will be Google's YouTube Mobile. And now? The whole blogsphere is writing and ranting about this, hardly awaiting the iPhone launch next week.

THOUGHT: HotSpot Providers needs to better understand the Mobile Devices World
Posted by Arne Hess - at 13:55 CET under 09 - Thoughts

Another day, another city and another coffee shop which offers a public HotSpot. So far so good I thought and fired up my Smartphone since I wanted to do some E-Mails, etc.
Doesn't matter if it is a free HotSpot or one which costs, most HotSpots requires a login on a web frontend which is generally fine for me even if completely useless if it is a free HotSpot (like the one bellow). Anyway - it's okay and not bothering too much except if you get what I just got when I've tried to use the HotSpot in the cofffee shop I'm currently relaxing:

THOUGHT: How many Mobile Phone number fields Outlook (Mobile) should have?
Posted by Arne Hess - at 14:31 CET under 09 - Thoughts

Not sure how it is about you but for me, Outlook lacks one important field: private mobile phone numbers. Outlook has many fields for contact details, like Assistant phone number (very useful), Business Fax, Home Fax, Other Fax (three fax number fields? ), Pager (who is using a Pager today), Primary and Radio (what ever it is) and even Telex (though the last Telex was disconnected in the late 80s in the last century) but Outlook 2007 has just one filed for mobile numbers!
I'm not going to say that all the previously mentioned fields doesn't make any sense anymore today but please - why just one Mobile field after Microsoft just recently introduced its new Outlook 2007, Exchange 2007 and Windows Mobile 6? Wouldn't it be the perfect timing to introduce new fields?
