  • Blog Post: My shiny new Blackjack

    I recently picked up a Samsung Blackjack from Cingular and have to say that I love it! I've been a Windows CE junkie for years (I even wrote my Masters Thesis on an original Casiopeia A-11 HPC), so I'm biased of course. Switching from the Pocket PC OS to the Smartphone OS has been interesting, but I...
  • Blog Post: Thumb blogging

    I'm trying a little experiment in mobile blogging today using the latest drop of Kevin Daly's Diarist for Windows Mobile and SPb's full screen keyboard SIP on my Axim x50v. It has been a little frustrating getting used to tap-typing on the screen with my fat thumbs, but I'm starting to get the hang of...
  • Blog Post: Upgraded your Axim x50v to Windows Mobile? A few tips...

    I upgraded my Dell Axim x50v to Windows Mobile 5 this week, and I thought I'd share a few tips & things I've learned since doing so.

  • Blog Post: Verizon launches the Samsung i730 Pocket PC phone

    Watch out SMT5600, there's a new drool-worthy smartphone on the block. If I didn't already have and love my Dell Axim x50v (and I hadn't just gotten a new Verizon contract), I'd be all over this phone. It's a very capable Pocket PC with 64MB RAM/128MB ROM, 527 Mhz, 240x320 screen, slide-out keyboard...

  • Blog Post: Have you trained your Transcriber lately?

    I use different input methods for my Pocket PC depending on which application I'm working with. Lately, I've been trying to use Transcriber more and more. In the past, I never had much luck with it recognizing my chicken-scratch scribble. Now it's great! I used to expect to have to edit everything I...
  • Blog Post: Pocket PC blogging tools

    Last night, I tried out 2 Pocket PC blogging tools: Diarist and PocketBlogger . Diarist supports several popular blogging engines, including Blogger, CommunityServer, and LiveJournal. The only quirk I've noticed so far is that the title field doesn't map to the titles in my blog posts for some reasons...
  • Blog Post: BattleBot built on PocketPC with .NET CF 2.0 featured in Tech Ed keynote

    I've long thought Windows CE and .NET were great platforms for mobile robotics, and these folks have proven the theory. Appropriately named "The Finalizer", this bot is so adept at disposing his opponents, it's almost like it's using them just for fun ;) Link: Microsoft.com - First BattleBot Built...

  • Blog Post: Welcome to my Pocket PC channel

    I love my Dell Axim x50v. I've had it for about 5 months, and I used an iPaq 4355 before this. I'm still discovering new tips/tricks/tweaks and usage patterns every day that I'll be posting about here. Here's what I have installed on my x50v today: Newsbreak by Ilium Software - a great RSS reader...
