For me, the Option GlobeTrotter GPRS PC card is still one of the finest GPRS terminals (see my review here) available.

It's still one of the fastest GPRS terminals as well as it works great with Notebooks and Pocket PCs. However, as always, there is still room for improvements.

I don't know for how long the new Pocket PC PIN driver for the Option card is already available, but there is a new one you might want to download if you are using it often with your Pocket PC.

This PIN driver works even better than the previous version and pops-up every time you switch on your device. It registers the card (normally) within seconds to the GSM and GPRS network.

But also Pocket Presence released a new and free add-on for Running Voice GSM 2.x. Frequency setting for the Option GlobeTrotter Card is an add-on application to be used together with the GlobTrotter card, which enables you to switch between the 900/1800 MHz or 900/1900 MHz frequency mode of the GlobeTrotter card. This means you don't need the AT command (see my tip in the Forum) anymore.

Last but not least I want to recommend the Running Voice GSM Car Skin if you are using your Pocket PC/GlobeTrotter combination for voice calls also.

The Car Skin is equipped with finger-sized buttons and bulky text when displaying contacts and speed dials.

The Running Voice GSM Car Skin is available from PocketGear for US$4.99.
