Ilium today informed me, that they released their latest product: NewsBreak for Pocket PC, which is a RSS-feed Newsreader for Pocket PCs.

With NewsBreak you have the latest information with you, wherever you go. Get the latest headlines, weather, sports, business and entertainment news wirelessly on your Pocket PC.

Stay productive any time, anywhere, by keeping up on recent events, industry news, and other information. Turn wasted time into useful time by catching up with whatever you're interested in.

Stay up to date on the latest news, including:

  • Headlines, Sports, Industry News
  • Website Updates, Weather, Local Info
  • Weblogs, Entertainment, News, Hot Bargains
  • Travel Updates, Stocks And much more!

Wherever you are, use your wireless connection (like GPRS or Wi-Fi) or update your headlines via ActiveSync when your Pocket PC is connected.


  •  Alerts - NewsBreak will alert you when headlines match your keywords. You don’t have to scan hundreds of headlines to find the articles you're interested in. When you want more detail, NewsBreak shows you the complete story using familiar Pocket IE technology.
  • Automatic Updates - Use NewsBreak with a wireless connection, or with ActiveSync passthrough at your desk. When you have a wireless service or a Wi-Fi hotspot, use it for mobile updates. When you don't, get your updates and info at your desk, and read them anywhere.
  • Unlimited News Sources - Don’t be limited by a newsreader. You can find, add, and view any available news feed based on RSS, the hottest new Internet technology. NewsBreak fully supports all types of RSS feeds.

  • Increased Productivity - NewsBreak keeps track of what you've read, and shows you what's new.
  • Efficient Communication - NewsBreak updates your headlines only when the info has changed, saving on your battery life and your wireless bill.
  • Complete wireless and ActiveSync passthrough support - Use NewsBreak with your WiFi, Bluetooth, or Pocket PC Phone Edition connection, and when connected to your PC.

To add new channels you can either chose from a list of known channels, search online for channels or add the channel URL by hand. If you already use a RSS Newsreader on your PC, you can even import your current channels through the OPML standard!

I'm a big fan of RSS as syndication and I have built my personal newspaper with the use of RSS. Now we get a great RSS Newsreader for Pocket PCs and it looks pretty promising!

NewsBreak for Pocket PC is available for a introductory price of only US$ 14.95 (save $5.00) and also includes a 30 day trial version. A Smartphone version will follow December this year!

Cheers ~ Arne

I tried this out and found the displays very readable. I like the headlines and keyword trigger features saves me from having to read  everythng.

However, the navigation was not as great. It does not have mark all articles read when moving to the next channel. It doesn't have a Today screen plug-in that lets me at a glance view what is available.
