T-Mobile Joins In Unlimited Plans War

I guess it was just a matter of time before T-Mobile also started offering unlimited data plans after Verizon, AT&T, Sprint and Helio already made their announcements. Just like the plans, the ones from T-Mobile are also going for $99 a month but unlike the ones from Verizon and AT&T, the ones from T-Mobile throws in unlimited text messaging as well. I wonder what these cellular providers will do next to get an advantage over the rest. [via Engadget]

New Version Of PhatNotes Released: 5.2

PhatNotes is a pretty awesome piece of software, and if you have not read my review of it, you should. As for users who are avid users of this great application, don’t forget to get your upgrade to 5.2 as soon as possible. It adds a ‘Context Analyzer’ feature to the Windows Mobile version which allows you to ’set optionsĀ for accessing websites, sending emails, making phone calls or opening files just by tapping on words that are recognized as website URLs, email addresses, phone numbers or a custom command.’ [via]

eReader Goes Free

Once sold for $14.95 and then dropped to $4.95, eReader is now free for downloads. However, add-on packs and books will still cost you. I am not sure about you, but I would prefer to read my novels and other kinds of books printed on paper, or at least on something larger. How many of you read books on your PDA and how’s the experience? [via Pocket PC Addict]

I never sticked with any ereader for long. It’s just not very convenient to read large amounts of text on the Pocket PC! By the way, when I’m staring at the PPC screen there’s a good chance that I think of something else to do with my PPC (games etc) so I’d probably get distracted anyway.

That’s my thoughts exactly, I can’t really read large amounts of text on a small screen and I somehow prefer the feel of flipping pages. Even for e-books which I download, I end up printing them.

Reading book was one of the reasons I got my first smarphone, a nokia e50. The screen was very small but the readers were fine. I moved to Eten X500+ but the readers for WM6 are not on par with the Symbian ones. Using TinyReader at the moment and hoping for something better that supports .txt, resume reading from last page and a decent interface that allows you to browse the library and the books using your fingers.

Good luck finding one. Unfortunately I am not familiar with this category or I would give you some recommendations. Maybe other readers would.
