Dave W. Beauvais felt that the default "Start Page" page on Pocket PCs is pretty lame (something most of us think I believe). You can go to the built-in AvantGo client and to three or four other pre-defined locations, and that's about it. Having an assortment of locations quickly available without having to use the Favorites dialog is important to him, so he set out to create a new Start Page for his Pocket PC that was both attractive and functional.

Pocket Internet Explorer Start Page v3.01 was born!

The screenshots below show the results of my work. A description of the page follows the four screenshots.

A screenshot showing the Pocket PC page which contains links to the mobile version of popular Pocket PC sitesA screenshot showing the News and Information page which contains links to the mobile version of news and informative sites
A screenshot showing the Searches page which contains a link and search for for Google's mobile siteA screenshot showing the Blogs page which contains links to several blogs and personal Web sites I like to visit

To download the Start Page package, please see this page in the Downloads section of the Web site. I also ask that you please take the time to completely read the documentation page before asking questions. I tried to be very thorough when writing that and expect it will address most questions you may have.

Great work Dave and thanks for adding PPCW.Net to your list also. Since your Start Page covers more or less the same sites I'm also visiting daily I will definitely add it to my Pocket PC and Smartphones as well!

Cheers ~ Arne

Thanks for the link! I wish people would let me know when they discuss this so I can add a link back to their site to the growing "Thanks" section of the page! As it is, I've found several sites by checking the referals in the server logs. smile

PPCW.net has one of the coolest mobile sites out there. I really like the drop-down menu navigation system which doesn't waste mobile display space with buttons, graphics, or tons of hyperlinks. Very well done!
