Bluetooth DUN Cripped on Treo 700w – at Treo Today

13 January 2006

Thanks to Azizi over at Treo Today for this –Bluetooth DUN is crippled on the Treo 700w. After all the bad press Sprint got for doing this in the original revision of the Treo 650, you’d think Verizon would know better. Sprint did end up enabling Bluetooth DUN on the 650 with a later software […]

Backup issues with WindowsMobile 5?

9 January 2006

Smartphone Thoughts brought to light a potentially dangerous issue. There isn’t currently any working backup software for Windowsmobile 5. I don’t yet have a WM5 device to gauge how stable it is, but I am an absolute backup fanatic. My Treo 650 gets backed up daily, if not twice daily. Sometimes 3 times. Rolling backups […]

8 January 2006

Ivan Mitrovic over at uLocate has found a way to get the excellent Google Maps on the Treo 650. It involves installing Java on your Treo, so it does take up a solid amount of RAM. He calls his creation “KMaps” , probably because GMaps would make Mr. Google unhappy ;). Like I said, you’ll […]

Mobiledia reviews the LG VX9800 and writes – ‘With so many strengths in imaging, audio, messaging, storage, and connectivity, it’s difficult to point out any significant weaknesses.
