Reviews of T-Mobile Touch Pro2; Details Emerge on Windows Mobile 7

Reviews of T-Mobile Touch Pro2; Details Emerge on Windows Mobile 7

Reviews of the new Touch Pro2 from T-Mobile are starting to appear. T-Mobile is the first U.S. carrier to begin offering this phone, with the others expected to roll theirs out soon. This week I’ll also point you to details leaked about the forthcoming Windows Mobile 7.

Reviews of T-Mobile Touch Pro2

The good news is that T-Mobile is the first U.S. carrier out of the starting gates with the Touch Pro2. The bad news: they’re taking advantage of this by charging a hefty $3.49 for this baby with a two-year contract and a qualifying data and voice plan. Again, this popular device has a slideout QWERTY keyboard as well as the popular TouchFlo 3D interface.

CNet has a brief news announcement regarding its availability along with photos and a video. And Engadget has a short review that includes photos and a video. The photos let you see the T-Mobile version of the Touch Pro2 side by side with other versions of this device.

Engadget could hardly be more enthusiastic, saying that “Many describe it as the ultimate smartphone form factor, the perfect execution of everything a modern handset is capable of doing.”

PocketNow has a detailed review , an unboxing video , and a hardware tour video . Their bottom line? Quibbles about the keyboard usability, but excellent as a touch phone, describing it as “flashy, beautiful, and useful.” And more effusiveness: “Videos play wonderfully and the screen is great for games and photos.” And “Overall, the Touch Pro2 is an extremely capable device and it’s sure to be one of the hottest phones of the year.”

Verizon Touch Diamond2 to Have both GSM and CDMA

If you’re not in need of a slideout keyboard and would prefer an iPhone-like svelte form factor, then the Touch Diamond2 might be your choice. According to Pocket PC Thoughts , Verizon will release the Touch Diamond2 in September or October. This device will have a 3.6-inch touch screen, 5 megapixel camera with autofocus and anti-shake stabilization, GPS, and both GSM and CDMA, making it compatible with networks worldwide.

New Details on Windows Mobile 7

According to an interesting article on CNet , Robbie Bach, Microsoft’s president of their entertainment and devices unit, admits that Microsoft has neglected Windows Mobile development, as critics cla...

T-Mobile Dash Tips & Tricks

T-Mobile Dash tips & tricks

  • Toggle Wi-Fi on and off: If you are in a public Wi-Fi hotspot, simply select Wi-Fi >Wi-Fi on the Dash’s Home screen to turn the radio on. When you leave, select it again to turn Wi-Fi off.
  • Quickly access push e-mail: The Dash features push e-mail capability, which can be used if you have an Exchange Server set up. Push e-mail allows mail to be sent directly to your device so you won’t have to repeatedly check for new messages, which adds convenience and saves battery life. To start push e-mail, quickly press the power button once, choose the Comm Manager option, and then choose DirectPush.
  • Lock your keyboard: Smartphone devices like the Dash have exposed keys, which are prone to being accidentally pressed when the device is in a pocket or bag. This can be avoided by locking the keyboard, which is done by pushing down and holding the End button. The keyboard can be unlocked by pressing the Unlock soft key and then the asterisk (∗).
  • Use Flight Mode: You can use the Dash for anything other than wireless communications while on a plane as long as it is in Flight Mode (which disables all wireless functions). You can activate flight mode by quickly pressing the Power button once and then selecting Comm Manager >Phone.
  • Close programs: One annoying feature of Windows Mobile devices is that after you close an application, it will continue to run. The D...

T-Mobile's G1 and Android

A First Look at T-Mobile’s New G1 and Android

 The Android OS has been lurking in the shadows for some time, and even after the SDK was released, the project still seemed somewhat a mystery. The lurking will end as soon as T-Mobile starts shipping its new G1. It’s already listed on their Web site for pre-order here , but the Google-based phone has not grabbed the limelight—yet. How does this mobile Johnny-come-lately stack up against Windows Mobile? Let's take a look under the hood and see if Microsoft should be concerned.

Large Touch Interface--Easy To Use

After the success of the iPhone and the newer Windows Mobile devices with enhanced “touch” interfaces, it’s clear that users want touch screen devices that allow easy access and control without a stylus. Tasks like web browsing or checking e-mail, for example, should not involve painful hunting through menus, and using vertical/horizontal scrollbars. It’s obvious that the Android OS was built with ease-of-use in mind, and the G1's large 480X320 screen won't hurt any in that regard.

Much like the iPhone, the G1 focuses on a solid set of mobile features, which include a Web browser, maps, messaging, etc. In addition, HTC (the manufacture of the G1) has packed in a decent range of hardware features, including a slide-out QWERTY keyboard, trackball control, 3.2 MP camera, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, and 3G data connection. But in the end, the OS and user interface will probably be the defining difference with this phone.

Based on what I’ve seen, the crisp, large GUI will appeal to users who don't want to spend a lot of time getting to know their phones. In addition, I expect that third-party developers will jump on board to provide enhancements to the Google based widgets and services, like the included Gmail, Google Chat and Google maps.

The Home Screen

A bad home screen can be a deal-breaker with any device (it's the first thing you use). Fortunately, the Android’s home screen is uncluttered, with attractive Google-oriented icons and widget shortcuts. Like both iPhone and WM touch devices, a status bar with network status icons extends across the top of the screen. Drag the status bar downward to review the latest status alerts. For example, incoming messages will appear in the status bar, and you can reply right in the same expanded “mini-blind” window.

Icons and shortcuts can be placed or moved on the home display as desired. The main application-launcher menu can be made to pop-up by tapping on the up-arrow icon at the bottom of the screen. A hardware button on the G1 is also assigned to this function. An extended desktop is available by dragging the home screen to the right, much like iPhone or the iPod Touch. UI replacements for Windows Mobile devices, available from third-party developers, do much the same thing, but changing the home screen is infinitely simpler in Android. Just “long press” on the ho...
