Official Facebook App for Windows Mobile! (Download Links)

Remember all those Windows Mobile 6.5 screenshots with a Facebook App? Well, XDA developers had just extracted this app from WM6.5 into a standalone app for your Social Networking pleasure.

The application has been reported to work on WVGA, VGA and QVGA devices. You need to download and install the application to Device (Do NOT INSTALL on storage card); be patient at first run as it will take some time to download all the information it needs. While it’s a new application from an early Windows Mobile 6.5 beta, there are still some problems reported like not saving login info even if “save info” is checked, not showing friends IDs if they are not one of your friends. More screenshots below.

I know, it’s still a little buggy right now, but if you suscribe to this blog, you’ll get to know when there’s an update!

Microsoft My Phone: MobileMe-like sync for Windows Mobile

Looks like that’s the trend: Online Cloud Storage. Remember Eee Storage? And we all know Apple’s MobileMe’s service, which syncs everything to the cloud. Well, now it looks like Microsoft is trying to do the same thing with Windows Mobile Phones, rather than with computers. Microsoft has launched a sneak-peek website called “My Phone”, which contains quite a lot of information.
A description of the service used to be at getskybox.com, but now, visiting getskybox.com will redirect you to the My Phone page.

According to the website, My Phone will allow you to store data, including photos, videos, text messages and calendar items in a password-protected area, inaccessible to anyone but yourself (and Microsoft employees). If you ever get a new phone (like one of the new cell phones T-Mobile has released), or your phone gets stolen, you’ll be able to sync to “My Phone” and all your data from your old phone can sync to your new phone. Sweet.
Microsoft My Phone enables you to view and manage phone information by using a web browser. In your web account, you can add, edit, and delete contacts and calendar appointments, and the changes will appear on your phone the next time that you sync.

Microsoft will offer more details about My Phone at the Mobile World Congress trade show in mid-February, said a Microsoft spokesman. The service will be available at that time as a limited, invitation-only beta, he said.

Microsoft won’t be charging a cent for this service (cough, Apple), although the storage size is at a crippling 200MB only.

Josh’s Verdict: Sounds Awesome, except my WM5 won’t be getting this, it’s WM6 only 🙁
Wait a second, doesn’t Microsoft have Windows Live SkyDrive (thus the old name SkyBox)? And Live Mesh as well? Too much overlapping here. Seriously.

Windows Mobile 6.5 shows up on the Compulab exeda

Who cares how the phone looks like. It’s awesome. Why? It can boot Android AND Windows Mobile. Did I mention you could also plug in an RH-45 Ethernet cable? And a phone with left/right click mouse?

Anyways, back to the OS, the team just shows us their phone booted with Windows Mobile 6.5 Alpha. Check it out.

New T-Mobile Dash makes me cry..

 According to the source, the new phones have been seen in a few T-Mob stores across the country, and they’re sporting Windows 6.1 and a camera upgrade of some sort. We’re light on details, like whether or not this bad boy is 3G, but then again there’s no telling whether or not any of this is even for reals. But that is a picture, isn’t it? We’ll just have to wait and see.

Josh’s Verdict:  Oh why, why can’t HTC make a frigging Windows Mobile 6 upgrade for the Dopod C720W? (it’s the exact same phone as the HTC Excalibur (HTC S620), also rebranded as T-Mobile Dash). They have one for the HTC Excalibur.. but not the dopod one. Just look how sad my C720W looks with Windows Mobile 5:

Palm introduces Software Store for WinMo / Palm OS devices

Apple’s doing it. RIM’s doing it. Google’s doing it. Heck, even Microsoft might be doing it. As the peer pressure mounts, Palm has finally decided to cave and introduce its very own applications market place, which is simply being christened Software Store. Oddly, it looks as if Palm farmed out the production of said store to one PocketGear, but we’re assured that the app will hum along just fine on over 25 Windows Mobile / Palm OS-based Palm devices. Available for download as we speak, it offers up over 5,000 apps and games, 1,000 of which are completely free. Hmm, we wonder if Palm’s keeping a Nova-compatible version in its back pocket? Palm says that this is actually the very same software store that has been around, it’s just a sweet looking veneer to make accessing it easier. Read
