The Way Phone Upgrades Should Be Done

Posted by Jason Dunn in "Pocket PC Articles" @ 04:22 PM,281...,2343326,00.asp

"Never mind the cut and paste. Never mind the picture messaging, or all the other stuff that should have been in iPhone 1.0. Never mind the new payment methods that will shake up the mobile shopping marketplace. The most radical thing Apple said at the iPhone 3.0 software release was: "The upgrade will be available for free, this summer, to all iPhone owners." Why can't any other smart phone vendors do this?"

My fellow Mobius alumni Sascha Segan nails Microsoft and RIM to the wall in his article, and he's 100% right. There are many reasons why I prefer Windows Mobile to the iPhone, but I'll give credit where credit is due: Apple's ability to easily upgrade the phones of its users is exactly the way things should work, and it makes the rest of the industry, especially Microsoft, look ridiculous in comparison.

How Microsoft Intends to Regain Lost Ground In Mobile Territory

Posted by Darius Wey in "Pocket PC Talk" @ 08:55 PM

"Microsoft has made some stumbles in the mobile world, but a strategy shift made more than a year ago will soon pay dividends, the company's top Windows Mobile executive said in an interview with CNET News. Andy Lees, the executive brought over from the server unit a year ago, said that Microsoft's efforts to make sure that its mobile software could run on a wide range of phones resulted in an operating system that failed to take advantage of advances in hardware. "We aimed to go for a lower common denominator," Lees said. Microsoft was also limited by the origins of Windows Mobile, which was developed to power handheld computers that neither connected to a network nor handled voice. "We started out when we were in PDAs (personal digital assistants) and then a phone got strapped to the back of the PDA," Lees said. The company also failed to recognize that phones--even those that were used for business--were still as much personal as they were professional."

The first four paragraphs of the CNET/ZDNet article accurately highlight some of Windows Mobile's flaws, and why the once-venerable smartphone operating system, at times, appears feeble next to relative newcomers, iPhone OS, Android, and webOS. But it's not all doom and gloom for Microsoft. According to Andy Lees, we'll see some breakthroughs over the next 18 months, with the first set expected as soon as mid-February as Microsoft takes the stage at MWC. Lees hinted at an increased reliance on the cloud, the need to improve the core of Windows Mobile in order to keep up with the competition, and a closer relationship with OEMs (which we can only hope translates to more frequent and more consistent updates for all consumers).

Is this the right approach? Sound off in this thread.

Windows Mobile 7: 2010 and Counting

Posted by Rocco Augusto in "Smartphone Talk" @ 06:00 PM

"Recently it was revealed that the newest version of Microsoft's mobile operating system, Windows Mobile 7.0, would be delayed until as late as 2010. The updated version, which the company's partners had reportedly been hoping to have by early 2009, was aimed at giving Microsoft a bigger presence on the mobile stage. But delay or no delay, I don't think it would have been enough. With competition from a resurgent BlackBerry platform from Research in Motion, Apple's iPhone and most importantly, the Google Phone platform (I will analyze Nokia's Symbian platform in a separate post at a later date), Microsoft's mobile platform is facing its toughest environment yet."

Despite the title of this article I ran across on CNN today, Why Windows Mobile is in Trouble, it is not the usual doom and gloom scenario that appears to be popping up in the Internet consciousness as of late regarding Windows Mobile. Om Malik goes on to write a fantastic piece on how Microsoft is now more than ever fighting an uphill battle in the mobile handset world in a means to stay relevant in the consumers' eyes, especially with the release of Google's new Android platform which Malik describes as "Windows Mobile done right". This article also quoted VentureBeat in stating that we might not even see new Windows Mobile handsets until 2010! Read more...

Is the iPhone Now More Unstable than Windows Mobile?

Posted by Rocco Augusto in "Smartphone Talk" @ 08:00 PM

"...Dare I say, Windows Mobile is not Unstable, it’s the applications we flood the devices with. Bashing Microsoft for other developer’s applications is something that has just become the 'cool thing to do', I guess. Windows Mobile is not perfect, but it’s not the beast many want us to believe. Apple has 3rd party applications now. Nice right? Well, iPhone owners are complaining of lockups and having to reset. It could never be Apple’s fault though, it’s got to be the applications. Bad developers, bad apps, it could never be Apple’s fault. So here we are, Apple iPhone locks up… Bad App. Windows Mobile Phone locks up, Bad Microsoft. Hmmm… Ok. Let’s talk about the iPhone shall we?"

I had a little internal battle with myself before releasing this. On one hand I am incredibly sick and tired of the constant barrage of articles comparing the iPhone to Windows Mobile. At the end of the day their differences and user experiences are so unique that it is pretty much useless to try and draw comparisons. These devices were designed from the ground up for completely different customer bases mean Windows Mobile will always be superior to the iPhone when it comes to the business side of things and the iPhone will always outshine Windows Mobile when it comes to user interface.

Chris from Mobility Site does bring up an interesting point though. With the release of the new iPhone and application store there appears to be larger than average complaints from users about device lockups, hard resets, bricking from other the air application updates, and even the camera distorting images - it looks as if Apple's little device that could is starting to experience some big boy growing pains like all the other mobile smartphone operating systems. So what do you guys think, are these all just isolated incidents or are any of you iPhone users experiencing any of these issues?

Apple No Like Your Application... Apple Smash!

Posted by Jon Westfall in "Thoughts Media Off Topic" @ 07:30 PM

"By now, we're well aware that Apple can make apps vanish without a trace (or explanation) from the App Store. But Jonathan Zdziarsi, the author of iPhone Forensics, says that Apple can actually remotely disable apps installed on your iPhone. Apparently, there's a blacklist URL in the iPhone's OS that he says "suggests that the iPhone calls home once in a while to find out what applications it should turn off."

So while Apple hasn't disabled anything they don't like to date (such as NetShare), this suggests that there are ways that Big Fruity can take you down a notch or two application wise (yea yea, I know - it's meant to disable malware... but that doesn't limit it to just malware!).

But then again, cool people respect Apple's authority and should be alright with this, right? As far as the Windows Mobile world goes, Microsoft can't really even get updates out in an organized fashion, so for better or worse, I doubt they'd be up to this type of potential control. (Microsoft: The Less Evil and More Disorganized company compared to Apple... :) )

Microsoft: Forget iPhone, We Are Still #2 In Business

Posted by Ed Hansberry in "Pocket PC News" @ 03:00 AM

"Companies -- lots of them -- are still buying Windows Mobile smart phones, and Microsoft Corp. doesn't want to let iPhone mania make them forget. During Microsoft's most recent fiscal year, 325 enterprises purchased at least 500 Windows Mobile phones, with many buying many more, said Scott Rockfeld, group products manager for the mobile communications business at Microsoft, in a Friday interview. "

With all of the hype surrounding the iPhone 2.0 launch recently, which includes some capabilities to synchronize against some of your Exchange data directly with the server, Microsoft doesn't want IT pros to lose sight of the fact that Windows Mobile is still very big in business, although still behind RIM's popular Blackberry platform. Even at that, there are a lot of companies with RIM's BES server that use Windows Mobile devices, and over 100 are decommissioning their BES server. The article also mentioned one company buying 10,000 Windows Mobile devices but wouldn't give the name of the company, speculating only that it might be Wal-Mart, the world's largest private employer.

Rural Wireless Carriers File FCC Petition Opposing Handset Exclusivity

Posted by Rocco Augusto in "Smartphone Talk" @ 08:36 PM

"If you thought you were annoyed when one of the big wireless carriers locked up a phone you were after, you have no idea how frustrated small and rural wireless carriers are -- they've just filed a petition with FCC seeking to ban the practice. The 80 companies in the Rural Cellular Association serve small markets not well-covered by the big guys, like parts of New Mexico, Idaho, Kansas, Maine, North Dakota, Utah, and Wyoming, and they say that carrier exclusivity deals not affect their bottom line, but also deprive consumers of desirable phones like the iPhone and upcoming Blackberry Bold. They've actually got a pretty good point: lots of rural customers can't purchase and use an iPhone without technically breaking the AT&T service agreement. We'll see how this one goes -- although we'd love nothing more than to use any phone we wanted on any carrier, there are plenty of reasons it won't happen, and exclusivity is the easiest way for carriers to differentiate themselves to consumers."

As a consumer I really hope that in the coming years we start to see an end to all of the exclusivity contracts. I can understand them to a point but in the case of the iPhone, as mentioned above, was five years really necessary? Also I think the iPhone is a horrible example of a handset to use an example here since a lot of the rural carriers I can think of off the top of my head all run off of CDMA networks and the iPhone is a GSM and soon to be HSDPA handset. Even if the exclusivity deal was not in place, do you really expect Apple to make a CDMA version just to be fair to the little guys? A lot of high-end handsets have trouble selling in densely populated areas and if there is not enough customer demand to convince the big five to open shops in those rural areas, what makes the little carriers think they could even secure those fancy handsets in the first place?

Moto Q 9h Trumps The Apple iPhone

Posted by Rocco Augusto in "Smartphone News" @ 11:00 AM

"The Good Housekeeping Research Institute study engineers and a consumer panel compared 11 new QWERTY phones under $300 (suggested retail price with a two-year service) along with the iPhone ($400 suggested retail) and evaluated the phones for simplicity of text-messaging, text delivery speed, battery life, as well as ease of placing calls and voice quality. The Moto Q 9h came in second for ease of texting, beating Apple's iPhone. The Moto Q 9h's screen drew rave reviews for being large and easy to read. Not suprisingly, the phone also earned top marks on voice quality during calls."

Ah-ha! Take that Apple! Looks like a fancy user interface, incredible Web browser, and lots of storage aren't everything in the eyes of consumers! Sometimes all you need is a comfortable QWERTY keyboard to make your users happy. Now if only Windows Mobile devices would add all of the other things mentioned above, then our handsets might actually trump Apple in other categories besides texting.

APRIL FOOLS: Apple Announces Boot Camp for iPhone

Posted by Tim Williamson in "Pocket PC News" @ 05:00 AM

"CUPERTINO, California—April 1, 2008—Apple® today announced additional enhancements to its iPhone™ 2.0 software. The upcoming iPhone 2.0 software release will contain Boot Camp for iPhone. Similar to Boot Camp for the desktop version of OSX, Boot Camp for iPhone allows users the freedom to choose between a variety of operating systems for their iPhone. This opens up the iPhone to developers wanting to create software in the operating system they prefer, and allows users the freedom to select the environment they feel comfortable with on a day-to-day basis, while still allowing Apple to supply the top-notch iPhone platform. 'We’re excited to give our users and developers the freedom to select the best environment for their needs,' said Steve Jobs, Apple’s CEO. 'The iPhone’s hardware is the best mobile platform available, and combined with its revolutionary Multi-Touch interface, we believe this will create a surge in software development for the iPhone."

This is a pretty amazing announcement from Apple! Typically Apple likes to retain total control over their platforms and user interfaces, but Boot Camp for iPhone potentially means we could see Windows Mobile on the iPhone platform. I'm not sure that's the best OS for the hardware, but it at least gives people more options, which is always a good thing, right? So which OS will you choose to run on your iPhone?

Windows Mobile Shakes with Fear: Microsoft Hints at Office and Voice Recognition Applications on the iPhone and iPod touch

Posted by Darius Wey in "Pocket PC Competition" @ 12:25 AM

"The Redmond, Wash.-based software giant is already the largest software developer for Apple's Mac platform outside of the Mac maker itself, with Fortune's Big Tech blog estimating that its Mac Business Unit generates revenues in excess of $350 million and profits of over $200 million each year. Add to that the firm's expertise in its proprietary Exchange email protocols and business email systems, and it's almost a certainty that Microsoft will be among those bearing fresh wares for Apple's iPhone and iPod touch a bit later this year, Tom Gibbons, corporate vice president of Microsoft's Specialized Devices and Applications Group, told the business publication. "We do have experience with that environment, and that gives us confidence to be able to do something," he said. "The key question is, what is the value that we need to bring?" Gibbons' team of Mac developers, which actually resides in Mountain View, Calif., just a few miles from Apple's headquarters in Cupertino, is reportedly weighing its most viable options for an initial native iPhone application, which appears as if it will fall within the Office family of productivity applications."

It wasn't too long ago that Apple announced Exchange support for the iPhone and iPod touch. The implications here have yet to be seen, but come June, we'll likely see the two devices consume a reasonable chunk of Windows Mobile's market share. What about Office? It's always been one of Windows Mobile's biggest selling points. The iPhone and iPod touch lack it, but that may soon change, and if it does, it has the potential to be huge. Add in Tellme and a host of other applications and Microsoft will need to find new ways to make Windows Mobile as popular as it once was.

Paul Thurrott to the Windows Mobile Team: "Scew 'em!"

Posted by Rocco Augusto in "Smartphone Talk" @ 01:00 PM

"Hey, I have one very callous thing myself to say about Windows Mobile guys, which is screw them. No offense, but, seriously. I was there for the first version of Windows CE, Pegasus I think it was called, and I have watched as they have mismanaged the Smartphone market from day one. It has always lagged behind, it has not always been Microsoft's fault, I understand that part of it is the nature of the business. But you know Apple revolutionized the smartphone business, not just with the hardware and the software but also with the way they are now presenting this stuff to users and updating the system overtime. Providing new functionality. This is something that doesn't happen on other smartphones. It's the type of thing where I can go to a Microsoft event and they can announce a new version of Windows Mobile and I will not see that it in the store for another, at the time, 18 months. It's ridiculous! That's ridiculous! Screw 'em!"

I was listening to this week’s Windows Weekly podcast (Windows Weekly 51: In the MIX - 38-40 minutes in) and I was a little surprised to hear the above quote from the Windows Weekly co-host, and Windows IT Pro news editor, Paul Thurrott. Granted Paul goes on to say that in a pre-iPhone world, Windows Mobile was fine, and it was a lot like the other stuff, but the iPhone on a number of levels is a completely different device. Paul also makes it clear that he believes that in 3-4 versions, Microsoft might release something on the same level of the iPhone, but he isn't interested in following technology - as in copying it – he believes that it is more interesting to be there with the people that are innovating technology... And in other news, Apple licenses Microsoft's ActiveSync technology to "innovate" and bring push email service to iPhone users. How ironic that one of the best features announced for the iPhone lately is a Microsoft product!

In all seriousness though. Paul lays claims to several truths that we as Windows Mobile users see with each new release. Microsoft has had the opportunity time and time again to bring us something that leaves us drooling and wanting more, but with each new release it seems that we are constantly taking one step forward and two steps back. Since the iPhone's release last year, we have seen a handful of updates to phones operating system and each new update either fixes some outstanding bugs or adds brand spanking new features to the user experience. While it is true that a lot of these features are stupid things that should have been included with the iPhone from the get-to, we'll just ignore that little fact for a moment to focus on the important one - Apple is releasing update after update and I don't see them stopping anytime soon. Whereas Microsoft, if we're lucky, releases one new update a year... and we have to shell out hundreds of dollars to purchase a new handset to actually receive the darn update! Read more...

Chris Pirillo on the iPhone vs. Windows Mobile for Business Use

Posted by Jason Dunn in "Smartphone Talk" @ 01:00 PM

"I was a Windows Mobile device user for about seven years. I was against the iPhone at first, thinking my Windows device suited my needs just fine. Then Ponzi bought me the iPhone. MajorDef wrote in to ask which is better for business… a Windows Mobile device, or an iPhone? I am a product tester for Sprint, and recently got my hands on their new HTC Touch mobile device. It’s not a bad device. It’s very small and lightweight. It does everything I need it to do. But it just doesn’t compare to my iPhone. I get frustrated trying to push a button that doesn’t work on these Windows devices. After playing with this Sprint HTC Touch for about five minutes, I literally shook my head and said out loud “How did I ever DO this?”. Keep in mind that for seven years, I was perfectly happy with my Windows devices. Enter my iPhone. It’s not just an amazing media device, it’s a joy to use. It’s smooth, it’s functional, it works the way I never thought it could work. It syncs perfectly with my Outlook, which is where I primarily live with my work. It can share my contacts, calenders and tasks. I can connect it to Exchange. It’s just magic. Is it perfect? Hardly. But, it’s the closest to perfect that any mobile device has ever come."

This is from last week, but I thought it was worth sharing - on a dedicated Windows Mobile site like this one, you might consider this flame bait, but I'm hoping we can have some intelligent discussion on what Chris is saying. As a long-time Windows Mobile user, I think Chris' criticism of the platform has significant merit - he's not just some random user that picked up a Windows Mobile phone for five minutes and said he didn't like it. He's used it for years, is aware of the good and bad, and finally decided he couldn't put up with it any more. That's significant. What the video and post your thoughts - is Chris right?

From my perspective, I've only had about five minutes of hands-on time with an iPhone so I'm not the best person to compare the two. But in my hands on time with the product, it's impossible to deny the beauty and fluidity of the product. Apple did a great job with the design. But look deeper from a business user's perspective: can you process a significant amount of email with no physical keyboard? I know I can't - I absolutely need a keyboard. Can you use it as a business tool without third party applications? No, browser-based widgets are not applications. Perhaps some people can, but I know many of you rely on powerful third party software to get more done. And what about the whole Exchange issue? Chris' comments about how great Outlook/Exchange works with his iPhone were news to me - he didn't really go into details, but mentioned Plaxo. I know some people who won't use Plaxo because it's such a potential privacy nightmare. That's my brief take on the subject - what's yours?

Could Apple Destroy The Cell Phone Industry?

Posted by Rocco Augusto in "Smartphone Talk" @ 04:10 PM

"Remember when I told you that I believed Google could kill the cell phone industry by participating in the wireless spectrum auction? Well, what if I told you that Apple may participate in that same auction and the possibility of it destroying the cell phone industry is just as great? First off, Apple has the necessary funds in the bank to buy the wireless spectrum right out from under Google. Sure, it may seem like an unlikely battle because the two companies are practically in bed with each other, but let's not forget that this is business. Now that we have the financial element out of the way, we should consider the impetus for such a move. Well, if the past few weeks have been any indication, Apple is in no way happy about its relationship with AT&T and would probably do anything it could to get out from under it."

Wow... I love how everything is magically better in the land of make believe. For starters, when exactly did Google and Apple start sharing a bed? I wouldn't call a few widgets for the iPhone and intimate relationship and I definitely wouldn't try to make their relationship sound as thrilling and exciting as an episode of Dallas. Also how in the world could Apple be upset with their relationship with the new AT&T? From my understanding, Apple managed to strong arm themselves into an arrangement that not only gave the one trick pony of a company a large profit margin on their handsets, but also gives them a cut of the profit AT&T makes each month by forcing customer to activate their phones with data packages that they might not even use or want! If anyone should be upset, it should be the other handset makers that have been marking phones for the carrier for years and have to sit back and watch as the newcomer gets all of the special treatment.

iPhone Data to be Boosted by AT&T's Operation "Fine Edge"

Posted by Rocco Augusto in "NEWS" @ 10:55 AM

"An AT&T employee who works on Operations tells us that the carrier ordered a last-minute beefing up of its EDGE throughput, latency and coverage in anticipation of the iPhone. The operation, internally referenced as "Fine Edge" will continue until June 15th, and has been going on for as many as 6 weeks. EDGE is slow, but at least at AT&T, the implementation isn't limited by the protocol itself. Rather, the limiting factor is, according to our source, the data backend and the way the towers are configured to allocate bandwidth to data and calls. And according to an internal doc, they're dropping in more T-1s in their poorest performing towers, hoping to get that paltry 40kbps performance to a new minimum of 80kpbs. (EDGE's real world max is about 200kbps.) That's still painfully slow, but we're not ones to look a gift WWAN upgrade in the mouth."

User submitted image

Sometimes I sit around and wonder why certain companies maker certain decisions. Today, I'm sitting around and wondering what the heck AT&T Wireless (formerly Cingular Wireless) is thinking! First they decided to sign a 5 year exclusive deal with Apple for the rights to sell the Apple iPhone on their networks, a phone in which they are not even able to sell extra batteries for. Lithium Ion batteries were the third top selling category for accessories in my store when I worked for Cingular and since you're losing a good chunk of money on each handset sold, accessories are the real bread and butter for most wireless retailers. On top of that, they take valuable resources to tweak and rebuild their dying EDGE network instead of focusing on their expanding 3G network. Seriously, I need to know, why in the world are we moving backwards instead of moving forward?! If I was in charge, instead of focusing on our slower speed data network, I would have just told Apple to stop being a bunch of cheapskates and add UMTS/HSDPA connectivity to the device. Problem solved.

The good news is, all existing customers with EDGE compatible devices should notice the speed increase on their handsets as well. So not all is lost! :)

Have you seen the "Hello" advertisement campaign on the TV featuring the Apple iPhone? It has been brought to our attention that Apple's advertising agency had initially proposed an advertisement campaign based on the popular Mac vs. PC series, but the proposal was quickly shot down in the Apple board room. In case you are wondering why Apple didn't pursue the iPhone vs. Smartphone advertisement idea, then check out the storyboard sketched by Long Zheng and Tao Muon. :lol:

Apple Makes iPhone a Reality - Finally

Posted by Mike Temporale in "NEWS" @ 11:18 AM

User submitted image

Apple has finally announced the iPhone. This is the device that people have been speculating about for years now. From what I can gather at this point, there is no stylus, no keypad or keyboard. Instead Apple has developed a new multi-touch screen that works with your finger and somehow prevents accidental pressing. I wonder how successful this could be with no 3G support? People have blasted some WinMo devices for not having 3G.

Update: More specs can be found over here on Apple's site.

Kevin Rose Shares iPhone Details

Posted by Mike Temporale in "NEWS" @ 06:30 AM

Kevin Rose has let some details slip about the upcoming iPhone from Apple. We've heard about this phone for the last year and change, but it finally sounds like they might be making progress. However, the specs don't sound like anything special to me. From what Kevin said, it will be available on all 3 of the major networks, it's really small, slideout keyboard, touch screen, flash memory, and 2 batteries - one for music and the other for the phone. There will be a 4 and 8 GB version of the phone and it will sell for $249 and $449 respectively.

I don't know about you, but this doesn't really excite me. Aside from 2 batteries, which would add some serious bulk, I don't see anything that's ground breaking. MobilitySite has the YouTube video linked up. Give it a watch and let us know your thoughts.

BenQ Exec: iPhone 'Definitely Coming'

Posted by Jerry Raia in "OFF-TOPIC" @ 03:00 PM

"According to a BenQ executive Apple's plan for its own mobile phone with iPod functionality, being called the "iPhone," is no secret among manufacturers in Taiwan. The comments came as part of an interview with Australian technology publication Smart House magazine Tuesday. "An iPod phone is definitely coming. BenQ will not be making it as we are in competition with Apple however several of our suppliers have been approached to manufacture parts," the executive was quoted as saying. "Among manufacturers in Taiwan it is common knowledge.""

Well as this article later points out this is bad news for Motorola. What with all the wonderful 100 song limit phones they are selling. Maybe they can focus on Smartphones again? :lol: So how many of you would trade in your Smartphone for an iPod phone?
