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 notifications.

Spb Phone Suite should close some of these gaps by improving the Pocket PC phone functionalities:

  • 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

Cheers ~ Arne
