  • Android Now Plays Foursquare Too

    Android Now Plays Foursquare Too

    Foursquare has been all the rage in the early adopter mobile space the past several months. And it has been peeking outside of the early adopter crowd with things such as local bars offering promotions for Foursquare usage. But it has still been held back a bit by the fact that it has only had an iPhone app and a somewhat clunky mobile web interface. And Foursquare understood that, so it calledRead More

  • MetroPCS is getting a Windows Mobile phone!

    MetroPCS is getting a Windows Mobile phone!

    MetroPCS has been around since 1994. Windows Mobile has been around in one form or another since 2000. You think at some point their paths would have crossed, right? Nope – not until now, at least. Live images of the Samsung SCH-i220 Code have just leaked out, and there it is, emblazoned across the top of the device: the MetroPCS logo. Running WinMo 6.1 on a QVGA display with EVDO, a 2.0… Read More

  • Microsoft Brings Twitter And Facebook To The Emerging World With OneApp

    Microsoft Brings Twitter And Facebook To The Emerging World With OneApp

    Here in the U.S. (and especially in San Francisco), it's easy to forget that most of the world doesn't have iPhones, BlackBerrys, Android phones, and the like. Much of the world doesn't even have access to them, and if they did, they are often way too expensive to actually get one. Should those people be without mobile access to services like Twitter and Facebook? Microsoft doesn't think… Read More

  • Microsoft to pit Windows Mobile 6.5 and 7 against one another?

    Microsoft to pit Windows Mobile 6.5 and 7 against one another?

    According to Digitimes, Microsoft will be using a “dual-platform” strategy to compete with Android and the iPhone. 6.5, due to be rolled out October 1, will stay alive just to compete with Android, while WinMo 7 will compete with the iPhone. I don’t think this is as shocking as Gizmodo does, but I certainly don’t see the wisdom in having dueling OSes. Dueling salsas, maybe. Read More

  • Windows Phone's Zune-like interface demoed on video

    All the improvements rolling out with Windows Mobile 6.5 (the new UI and set of tools is now “Windows Phone,” though the name Windows Mobile is not completely gone) are coming along quite nicely. This video has many of them being demonstrated — some you’ve seen (My Phone) and some you haven’t (Zune interface, alerts, Windows Marketplace stuff), and I have to say, it… Read More

  • Windows Mobile now called "Windows Phone" – no, really

    Windows Mobile now called "Windows Phone" – no, really

    Apparently, it’s been leaked by some loose-lipped presenter at a Microsoft event that “Windows Mobile” is out, and “Windows Phone” is in. Well, Microsoft, I try to get your back now and then when you’re misunderstood or wrongly accused, but this is beyond the pale. I can’t think of a worse name to call your operating system. Let me count the reasons why: Read More

    Windows Mobile Will Open Up Its App Store To Developers Soon. Will They Bite?

    Today at the 2009 Worldwide Partner Conference in New Orleans, Microsoft is expected to announce that it will soon be opening up its mobile app development program to developers from around the world in preparation for the public launch of the Windows Marketplace for Mobile platform later this year. Starting July 27, developers from 29 countries will gain access to the program and be encouraged to… Read More

    After the G60, Garmin's devices will only run Android and WinMo

    The Garmin nuviphone G60 will come out one day, friends, most likely during the second quarter of this year. And when it does come out, there will be much rejoicing: it's the last time the Garmin-Asus operating system will be used on a device. From there on out it's Android and Windows Mobile all the way.

  • Windows Mobile sharing not really "sharing," just "backuping"

    Windows Mobile sharing not really "sharing," just "backuping"

    I was about to ignore this email from Microsoft but it seems there is a nugget of wonderful info in there. Remember when we said you could share your apps with four friends – behavior that essentially works on an iPhone and the App Store when you sync to the same iTunes instance? Well you can’t. OK? You can’t. Be quiet. Read More

  • Share your WinMo 6.5 apps with four friends, family members

    Share your WinMo 6.5 apps with four friends, family members

    Computerworld calls this market changing but I'm not so sure. Here's the skinny: when you buy an app from the Windows Marketplace for WinMo you can share that app with four people you know. You can also get a full refund within 24 hours of purchase. You can also run the apps on up to five of your own devices if you don't want to share. Read More
