Another week and another set of great articles from around the web. Here’s my list:

  • The Eten Glofiish X650 gets unboxed and compared over at Gear Diary. There is no review at the moment but I am sure they will come up with one in due time.
  • What are some of your best and worst mobile experiences? Some experts over at the Smartphone and Pocket PC Magazine blog give their take and it’s really interesting to read. I have yet to do mine up yet though, most probably some time next week.
  • iGo may be closing their business soon which means you only have a limited time left to get yourself one. But if you are worries about the lack of support, this article by Werner Ruotsalainen might help you clear your doubts.
  • spmwinkel, a regular commentator on this site, has a short write up on how to setup Pocket SharpMT. For all you bloggers and bloggers-wannabe out there.
  • If you are looking into managing the power on your Pocket PC device, be sure to check out Pocket Device Power Management for Windows Mobile. With this, you can easily turn off screen, restart and put your system in standby with just a tap. Did I mention that it’s free?
  • There’s some pretty good discussion going on over at JAMM about WM6.1 being underwhelming. Each commentator really gives his piece of mind which makes each comment rather long. However, they are filled with loads of well-thought argument. You’ll have to register to post your views though.
  • If you have ever wanted to control your PC from your Pocket PC, Jason Langridge has a solution for you. While it’s not free, it might just be worth is price. Check it out.
  • If you enjoyed msmobiles’s podcast last week, be sure to check out again this week as they cover Windows Mobile 6.1 and the Gmail IMAP fix among many others.
  • For you developers out there who are going to be creating your CAB files soon, be sure to check out this guide on how to avoid hardcoding file paths within CAB file registry settings.
  • There is a plugin out there called the SRS WOW Plugin. I think it comes from O2 (though I could be wrong) and what it does it enhance the sound output on your Pocket PC device. There is a short article on it here that you might want to check out (includes download links too).
  • Do you hate the programs that came with Windows Mobile but do not want to shell out good money for a software solution. Then your only answer would be to turn to freeware. Here’s a quick guide on free software you might want to check out. Do you agree with him fully? I know I don’t.
  • Still on the topic of free software, here’s a short post about backing up for free. Be sure to check it out because I really encourage you to do backups, be it with free or commercial software.
  • Want to keep up with what’s happening in the browsing department for Windows Mobile? This video chat by jkOnTheRun would be one to check out.
  • Your expensive Pocket PC can do more than just help you organize your life. According to msmobiles, it can also help you attract beautiful women. There’s no typo there buddy.
  • Find out the top 10 reasons why Windows Mobile is for business. From the people at Microsoft themselves!
  • Deciding on which music player to get for your Windows Mobile? Pocket PC Thoughts compares Pocket Music and Pocket Player in an easy to read 4 page article that would hopefully help you make a decision.

That’s all the articles I found this week. If you have any more to add, feel free to contact me about it.

Thanks for the link!
I also enjoyed the discussion on JAMM about WM 6.1 so for the people who quickly skipped it, doubting if it would be worth the read - it certainly is!

:shock: I rated this entry with 4 stars because I was expecting some reference to Opera Mobile 9.5, it’s seems a very promising browser, Tariq please check it out

Why am I the only one rating the blog entries ?

I had put this in the News section last week but due to some bug it did not get published and I totally forgot about it.

If anything browser related, I’d say the newly released Netfront Browser 3.5 Concept Version should be there. It’s now up for downloading. And SkyFire is released to limited people who signed up for the beta. I signed up but have not received the email.

Great set of links! Thanks!
