SoftMaker Office 2008 Beta Comes To Pocket PC

If you are looking for something more powerful than Office Mobile, then look no further than SoftMaker’s Office. They’ve just got a new version (2008) out though it’s still in beta. If you want to get your hands on this application, you’ll need to get some registration done up, but nothing too complicated. And for those of you wondering what’s so great about it, well let’s just say there are versions of this software made for Windows and Linux (at least in the pipeline) which means you can easily work across platforms without the need for conversions.

Jealous of iPhone because it has that Google Suite application? Well I was and I wanted Google to create something similar for the Windows Mobile platform. They didn’t listen but The Tech Turf must have had the same idea because they have now created an application that is just like that and more. Why more? Because it also has access to, eBay and (among a few others), services which I use rather frequently. I’ll definitely be downloading it and testing it out soon. [via the::unwired]

Basic4ppc 6.0 Released

Whether you’re a budding developer or a seasoned one, the capability to develop software for Windows Mobile on a Windows Mobile device might seem like a great idea. Well that great idea just came to live with the release of Basic4ppc. So instead of many of us who use our devices to listen to music or read an ebook while on the subway, you could be creating the next best-selling application. [via]

Evernote Coming To Windows Mobile

Note-taking addicts take note (no pun intended): Evernote will soon be making it’s way to Windows Mobile, among a slew of other platforms that include Mac (as well as the iPhone) and Android. There’s even a web version as well that will cross all platforms. Whether or not it would overthrow PhatNotes is something that can only be decided later when it’s been tested but here’s a cool feature you might want to take note of: taking a picture and then being able to search that picture for text, be it whether they were written or printed on.

Second Life: Coming To A Phone Near You

If WoW coming to your phone did not excite you enough, then this just might: Second Life is coming to a mobile phone near you (provided you are running 3G on your device). Unlike the planned WoW, this one allows you to do just about anything that you can accomplish on your desktop. I guess this is really great news for those of you who are hooked on Second Life. Anyone in the audience? [via Pocket PC Addict]

Get Your New Flash Video Bundle

Thanks YouTube for upgrading your codecs recently. It caused me to not be able to view your videos on my Windows Mobile device. But not for long because a new video bundle has just been created for TCPMP that will allow me to back to my happy video-watching days. If you’re like me, make sure you grab the update quickly.

GiFi To Replace Bluetooth?

That’s what Boy Genius Report are predicting but who wouldn’t agree with them? At $10 a chip and being able to achieve speeds of up to 5Gbps, what’s not to like about this new technology? Maybe the launch date? That’s because it seems that it will only make it to market in 2009. Until then, we’ll just have to be contented with our relatively slow bluetooth transfer speeds of 480Mbps.

New Windows Mobile Developer Center

There’s a new Windows Mobile Developer Center in town and you might want to check it out. It’s gone through a rather nice site re-design and in the hopes of serving the developers better. What do you think? [via Windows Mobile Team Blog]

HTC Video Driver Issue Update

It seems that HTC is going to offer a fix but not in the form of a driver as some expected. Instead, it will be in the form of a software optimization. Will this suffice? I highly doubt so and I am not sure to what extend this will alleviate the current problem but it is nice to see HTC doing something for their customers. No news yet on the release date though they are currently testing it out. [via the::unwired]
