AIM 2.0 Beta for Windows Mobile

"AIM for Windows Mobile brings all of the best features of AIM on your PC to your Windows Mobile smartphone! AIM for Windows Mobile lets you communicate whenever you want, wherever you are, in whatever way suits you best - IM or text. Update your AIM status and information when you're on the go. Change your conversation style, manage your Buddy List, and much more. AIM Windows Mobile Smartphone has many of the same key features and a familiar look-and-feel of the desktop AIM client."

Are you an AIM user? If so, beta version 2.0 is ready for you. As you can see by the screenshot AIM has a lot built into it. I personally don't use AIM but if you do and if you try it out on your Windows Mobile device, please let us know if it's worth it or not. Remember it's a 2.0 beta so there may be some things to work out so be aware. OK, go communicate!

i-Mate Quietly Heads to the Kiddie Pool

"i-Mate, the Windows Mobile handset manufacturer, will be delisted from the Alternative Investment Market as the share price sinks below a penny and the CEO takes back control of the company. The Financial Times reports that Jim Morrison, the colourful CEO who still owns more than three quarters of i-Mate, will take full control as the company withdraws from the AIM - itself a listing service for companies with insufficient heft for the London Stock Exchange."

I had no idea i-Mate was losing as much money as they were, but apparently i-Mate has lost over $70m between March of 2007 to September of this year. I guess the real question is how much steam does i-Mate have in the old engine? It has been a while since I have run across some really interesting i-Mate news but you have to figure if Palm can continue to string itself along as long as it has, then maybe there might be a chance for i-Mate after all.

AOL Releases AIM for Windows Mobile

"We reported back in June that AIM for Windows Mobile was now in beta. Well, the folks at AOL have sent word that it’s now officially out of beta and available as a free download at mobile.aol.com/AIM4WinMo. The latest version of AIM for Windows Mobile supports both smartphones and touch-screen devices running Windows Mobile 5 and 6 and features status messages, buddy icons, and the option of sending text messages via SMS."

It has always amazed me that it has taken this long for AOL to release AIM for Windows Mobile. Sure there have been a few Instant Messaging applications over the year that could handle the AIM protocol, but it just seemed odd that AOL never released their own. You can download this free piece of software today from AOL's website here.
