Weekend Plans? How About A ROM Update!

In case you haven't heard, the ROM updates for the T-Mobile Dash 3G and Touch Pro 2 are now available! So if you've got nothing else pressing this weekend, back up your personal files and explore Windows Mobile 6.5!

Freedom in Java Applets (AKA No More Errono=910)

Posted by Jon Westfall in "Windows Phone Customizations & Content" @ 07:00 AM

While I use Nuevasync to get my Gmail on my Windows Mobile devices, I still like to use Google's Java applet from time to time to fill in some gaps (such as search) that Nuevasync doesn't currently support. This stopped being an option earlier this year as the Java applet wouldn't load on my Dash 3G. It would download, and then fail to install giving an error reading "errono=910 Application Authorization Failure". While I'm not sure if it's an evil carrier lockdown or something less sinister, I was quite annoyed by this. Until today when I found this FAQ for the software product AviatorCalc. Seems that AviatorCalc is having the same issues with Windows Mobile devices as the Gmail applet. And their solution, downloading a new version of Esmertec Jbed seems to do the trick (FAQ contains a link for the download). I now have Google's Java applet running on my Dash 3G again! Highly likely this will work on other WinMo handsets too - I personally haven't tested them yet.

T-Mobile Windows Mobile 6.5 Upgrades In Early January?

Posted by Jon Westfall in "Windows Phone News" @ 07:30 AM

"The good news is that this isn't the 400th article this month talking about a potential Sprint/T-Mobile merger. The better news is that this rumor has a stronger chance of coming true than a Sprint/T-Mobile merger. One of my trusty ninjas hit me up tonight with information claiming that a Windows Mobile 6.5 update will see the light of day for the TouchPro2 and Dash 3G beginning January 6th, 2010"

It's a rumor reported by TMoNews, to be sure, however hopefully it's somewhat accurate. I mean when else will T-Mo finally get around to popping out the 6.5 updates for these two phones anyway? (Actually, if past track record is any indication, January 6th 2011 is probably just as likely). Hopefully though within a month us loyal T-mo users will have an official 6.5 upgrade - you know, the OS that was released on October 6 -- for those devices released in early and mid summer!

Vanishing T-Mobile Wing Rumors Falsified; Touch Pro2 Expected on July 22

Posted by Darius Wey in "Pocket PC News" @ 10:55 AM

Well, word on the street is that the Wing has mysteriously taken to the skies, though if you look hard enough, you'll see that it still has its feet firmly planted on the T-Mobile site. Just don't bet on picking one up anytime soon; it's out of stock and for good reason, too. The Dash 3G (HTC Snap) is just around the corner, while T-Mobile's worst-kept secret of the quarter, the Touch Pro2, is expected on July 22. Anyone planning on picking either of the two up when released?
