Prize Question: What month and year was MSMobileNews started? You’ll have to go to the MSMobileNews website for the answer!

This prize has now been won.

Due to the fact that the DVD player is Region 2 and 240v this prize is only open to the UK. Don’t worry, if you are outside the UK there will be lots of other prizes you can win later!

Crossbow on Orange SPV M3100?

It was only a few weeks ago that the first screen shots of Microsoft’s new Mobile OS, codenamed Crossbow, were leaked on the internet. Now according to this thread on XDA-Developers there are HTC Hermes devices out there running the new OS.

Crossbow on M3100

These low quality photos, presumably taken from another camaera phone, appear to show an Orange SPV M3100 running Crossbow. This has prompted a lot of discussion about the likelyhood of Orange releasing the a ROM update to customers or supplying newer M3100’s with Crossbow pre-installed.

I think it’s extremely unlikely that Orange will provide this as an update for existing M3100 owners, this isnt a simple ROM update, it’s a whole new OS and would be subject to different licensing argreements etc. It’s more likely that the device shown in the photos is a test platform for the new OS.

12 Days of Christmas – Announcement!

We are now entering day six of our ‘12 Days of Christmas‘ competition which should mean that we are half way through the prizes. However, we have just been given more prizes by the Windows Mobile team at Microsoft, Spreadshirt and JAVOedge.

This now takes the number of prizes to over 40(!) which means that we are struggling to give everything away in just 12 days. We have, therefore, decided to extend the competition for another few days (or more) and will continue to give away prizes at the rate of up to three per day until we have nothing left!

I trust everyone will be happy with this arrangement!
