treo800w-3-tm-thumb Who would have thought, the Treo 800w is super fast. Palm maybe be releasing nothing new on the hardware front but they have spent a lot of time making this phone react like you’d want it to. Push a button and things happen. Take a look at the video after the break. Thanks to Pocketnow.

iPhones locking up?

image-thumb88 Here is a video from Phone Arena showing a couple of problems with 2.0 on the iPhone. Doesn’t seem to say whether is it is the official 2.0 firmware however. I guess as you pack more and more things into a device the likelihood of error increases, ala Windows Mobile.

Treocentral’s review of the Treo 800w

Treo800w-3-tm Have look at this fairly hefty evaluation of the Treo 800w. They have many good things to say about it and point out a few obvious flaws along with a complaint about the battery. Sounds like another safe yet robust offering from Palm. Glad to see it.

iWindowsMobile Communication Suite now to Include Winterface

Vito Technology have updated iWindowsMobile Communication Suite to now include Winterface.

From the press release:

VITO Technology releases iWindowsMobile Communication Suite v 1.05. The Suite contains #1 finger-friendly contact manager FunContact, unique texting application SMS-Chat, zooming onscreen keyboard ZoomBoard, and now outstanding mobile shell Winterface instead of GoodWin! The price is $39.95, not $70 when purchasing separately.

With iPhone 3G out rocking the market even the users of the foremost flagship Windows Mobile devices may feel they are a tad behind progress. iWindowsMobile Communication Suite proves that Windows Mobile still can impress its users. Taking the best from iPhone interface the four applications included in iWindowsMobile Communication Suite build on the strengths of Windows Mobile and greatly enhance its standard interface.

Instead of putting on the usual marketing blurb, let me quote independent customer reviews from Handango for each product from iWindowsMobile Communication Suite.

FunContact (5 stars): “This really puts the default contact manager to shame. Even the souped up HTC Touch Contacts app looks pretty poor compared to this…”

SMS-Chat (5 stars): “…Look no further, bought this within 10 minutes of downloading. Brilliant, clear to view and does exactly what is says. Really useful for keeping track of conversations with different clients.”

ZoomBoard (5 stars): “The zoom modes really make it easy to make sure that you are hitting the right letter on your screen board!”

Winterface (user comment at MyTodayScreen): “This thing simply rocks! It is responsive and attractive, it’s clearly the start of something big…”

iWindowsMobile Communication Suite is available at http://iwindowsmobile.com for $39.95. The users of SPB Mobile Shell get a 30% discount during this week on the Suite and on Winterface – Mobile Shell of next generation.

Another look at the Palm Treo 800w

image-thumb98Palmsolo takes a look at the features of Palm’s newest offering. I’m actually pretty excited about it as it is a strong sign that Palm is stepping up to the plate to capture some of the market with a higher spec than the Centro.
