  • Blog Post: Microsoft News Center goes mobile

    My colleagues on the News Center team quietly rolled out a mobile version of News Center this week…we’re all over this mobile phone thing :) Tweet
  • Blog Post: Will your mobile interpret your mood?

    If EmotionSense   has their way then yes, it will. I know what you’re thinking (because I can sense it)…you don’t want your phone to determine your mood right? If it did, sometimes it’d want to leap out of your pocket and down the nearest drain. But there are upsides too…plenty of them. Imagine...
  • Blog Post: Microsoft Silverlight for Symbian now available

    This one may have got lost in all the noise from MIX10 about Windows Phone 7 Series and Silverlight 4. Good to see Silverlight making it’s way on to Symbian and it’s now available for Nokia Symbian^1 device (S60 5th Edition) including Nokia 5800 XpressMusic, Nokia N97 and Nokia N97 Mini. Above are sample...
  • Blog Post: HTC HD Mini

    Hot on the heels of Windows Phone 7 Series yesterday, HTC announced today the HD Mini. Their HD2 has been wildly popular though personally I found it a little too big. This device answers that – it has a capacitive touch screen, 512MB ROM, 384MB RAM, 3.2" HVGA display, 5MP camera and has 3G and...
  • Blog Post: Underselling the LG eXpo

    This I don’t understand – you have a pretty nice looking phone here with a feature I have no seen on ANY other phone in the marketplace. Okay, I’m sure another phone out there has a pico projector but when I saw this one I thought it was an unusual feature so wanted to find out more. Could I find any...
  • Blog Post: Google is an Internet company…

    A pretty thought provoking post from Marc yesterday on Google, the Nexus One launch and the future of Google itself. There is a lot of hyperbole around Google, Apple, Android – some of it merited, some of it not but hey, it sells papers….or blogs. The iPhone and Nexus One are both fine looking devices...
  • Blog Post: Bing for mobile

    A busy day for Bing. Bing for mobile got released…for Windows phone, Blackberry & Sidekick. I know..something is missing there…but not for me :)
  • Blog Post: Office Mobile 2010 beta released

    As well as the Office 2010 beta for PC today, the Office Mobile 2010 beta was announced. Available now from Marketplace
  • Blog Post: Inside the Microsoft Apps Lab

    and the official Windows phone ad which strangely I’d not seen before now
  • Blog Post: HTC HD2

    Looks stunning…I really should go check this out as I think it’s out on O2 from memory. £550 without SIM from Expansys . Ouch….I guess that’s the cost of a mini computer that fits in your pocket.
  • Blog Post: A brief history of communication

    What a great little video from The Carphone Warehouse on the history of communication. Sure they’ve stolen a bit from my friends at CommonCraft but imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. One thing is missing (unsurprisingly) from this video though – face to face communication. For all the progress...
  • Blog Post: Windows phones…are coming

    Windows phones are coming on October 6th. Having played with a unit running 6.5 Pro I’m finally inclined to move from my 5 year relationship with a keyboard equipped Smartphone. I love the HTC Snap I have at the moment but am keen to see if the touch screen interface of 6.5 can challenge its speed and...
  • Blog Post: Are you ready for the Window Phone?

    I’m not sure where the SIM card goes in this phone…but that’s the beauty of concepts :) It’s Seunghan Song’s concept Window Phone from the International Design Excellence Awards with touch sensitive glass that changes based on weather. As Limited Hype say, it’s just a concept but by it’s nature it helps...
  • Blog Post: Microsoft OneApp announced

    We just announced Microsoft OneApp which incredibly hadn’t leaked as far as I can tell. What is it? Basically it’s a mobile application platform for feature phones – of which there are over 2bn in the world. OneApp enables some of the most popular applications we’ve become familiar with on smartphones...
  • Blog Post: Nokia & Microsoft announce mobile alliance

    I just tuned in to the Microsoft and Nokia joint conference call with Stephen Elop and Kai Öistämö. As expected , they announced an alliance between the two companies around Microsoft Office and related software with Nokia smartphones – coming to E series first of all and interestingly Kai mentioned...
  • Blog Post: The New Phone in my life

    Not an iPhone, not a Palm Pre, not even an Android phone….nope, it’s the one I’ve been waiting for the – the HTC Snap. Normally I’d get a review on here within a days of getting the device but I’ve had this one for a month or so now thanks to a very generous pal of mine and I’m delighted with it. Spec...
  • Blog Post: Know Your Smartphones

    I love this smartphone guide from Wired but it makes me sad (and mad). Back in 2002 or so, Microsoft was early in using the term smartphone and we insisted the world was about to move away from feature phones and adopt these so called smartphones like crazy. Back then people said “yeah Microsoft, whatever...
  • Blog Post: HTC Hero and Sense UI

    HTC announced their Hero device today in London and their Sense UI. Wow these guys have come a long way from the days when I used to sit in meetings with them on Wigmore Street at Orange HQ and talk about the SPV ! I’m really pleased for them as there are few companies I have worked with who work as...
  • Blog Post: iBrowz Brings RSS to Windows Mobile

      Sarah just posted an entry about iBrowz which looks like a well presented RSS reader for Windows Mobile. Perhaps surprisingly I do very little mobile RSS reading though when I do, I flip to an iTouch and use Google Reader. I just like to have all my feeds aggregated and Google still does that...
  • Blog Post: The Mobile Web Is Borked

    An Internet Watered Down   A cool presentation by John Pettengill who work at Razorfish (a Microsoft company). He walks us through why the mobile web is just broken and a complete compromise and then explains what it could and should look like. Unsurprisingly the solutions are all iPhone based but...
  • Blog Post: HTC Snap

    This could be my long overdue new phone. For a few years now I have kept my HTC Excalibur – it’s simply a great phone, with great ergonomics, battery life and more. It falls down in a few areas though…lack of 3G and GPS are my two main bugbears and it fixed both. As BoyGenius reports, this is the first...
  • Blog Post: Isaac Mizrahi and Windows Phones

    Okay so maybe not everyone knows who fashion designer Isaac Mizrahi is but it caught my eye during our announcements at CTIA Wireless in Vegas today. Seems like he’ll be sprucing up some new Windows Phones with a touch of catwalk style soon. Sadly no photos so I’ll have to suffice with an image of the...
  • Blog Post: Windows Mobile 6.5 and Zune

    I didn’t manage to catch the Windows Mobile 6.5 session at MIX09 but after looking watching the video I’m inclined to agree with Long that it’s beginning to look like a more than adequate stop on the way to Windows Mobile 7. The UI looks pretty polished and in particular I like the home screen above...
  • Blog Post: New Microsoft ad for Windows Phones

    Wow…kudos to Andy Lees and the team. This is about the best ad I have seen Microsoft put out in….hmm, a long while. Like Joe Wilcox , I love the dude who throws his phone against the wall and then text pops up saying “be thankful for backup”. Amazing…they resisted the temptation to say “MyPhone”. Respect...
  • Blog Post: Start With Windows Mobile

      I love this video that Long managed to hack from the Windows Mobile Facebook site . I was about to ask the Windows Mobile team to make this stuff more easy to to share and then found their YouTube site. Cool!
