Pocket PC Thoughts Birthday Giveaway: HTC Touch Dual

Posted by Jason Dunn in "Pocket PC Events" @ 12:00 PM

Continuing our 8th anniversary celebration, I have another Windows Mobile Professional smartphone to give away: this time it's an HTC Touch Dual. This smarpthone uses a Qualcomm MSM7200 CPU at 400MHz, has 256 MB of ROM and 128 MB of RAM, a 2.6 inch QVGA screen, a slide-out 16-key keypad, Bluetooth 2.0, a 2 megapixel camera, and a 1120 mAh battery. It's a European 3G version, so it operates on HSDPA/UMTS 2100 MHz and GSM 900/1800/1900 MHz.

Want to win it? Here's how: post a message to this discussion thread telling me one thing you hope will be fixed, improved, or added in Windows Mobile 7. If you want to list more than one thing, go for it. One message per person please. I'll randomly select one post at 3 PM mountain time on Monday the 27th.

If you don't see your post right away, please wait 24 hours before re-posting. Odds are that it's your first post since we moved to vBulletin and it's simply held in moderation.

Pocket PC Thoughts Birthday Giveaway: CoPilot Live 7 Mobile Navigation

Posted by Jason Dunn in "Pocket PC Events" @ 06:30 AM

Continuing our 8th anniversary celebration, I have some software to give away - CoPilot Live 7 Mobile Navigation, courtesy of ALK Technologies. This package includes a 2 GB microSD card, an SD card adaptor, a CD, and the product key card. This software hasn't been installed or activated in any way - I'm just not much of a GPS kind of guy - and it sells for $99 USD.

Want to win it? Here's how: post a message to this discussion thread telling me about one time when you've gotten lost and GPS software on your Windows Mobile devic could have helped you find your way. Or, if you're one of those people who have never been lost, tell me about a time you've been...geographically inconvenienced. ;-) One message per person, and I'll randomly select one post at 3 PM mountain time on Friday the 24th.

UPDATE: A reminder that if you don't see your post right away, please wait 24 hours before re-posting. Odds are that it's your first post since we moved to vBulletin and it's simply held in moderation.

Pocket PC Thoughts Birthday Giveaway: HTC Touch Cruise

Posted by Jason Dunn in "Pocket PC Events" @ 01:51 PM

All right, let's kick off our 8th Anniversary celebration right - with some nice hardware! This is a near-new HTC Touch Cruise that I haven't done much more than toy around with during an unboxing video. This Windows Mobile 6 Professional smartphone features a Qualcomm MSM7200 400MHz CPU, 256 MB of ROM, 128 MB of RAM, a 2.8 inch QVGA screen, HSDPA/UMTS 2100 MHz (Europe) 850/1900 MHz (USA), quad-band GSM, Bluetooth 2.0, 802.11b/g WiFi, both a front-facing and outward facing camera, and a 1350 mAh battery. It's unlocked and sells for around $500 USD.

Want to win it? Here's how: post a message to this discussion thread telling me what sort of device(s) you were using for organization and communication back in October 2000 when this site was launched. Were you still rocking the paper daytimer and a mobile phone? A Windows CE-based HPC? A Palm PC? Any answer is fine. One message per person, and I'll randomly select one post at 3 PM mountain time on Thursday the 23rd.

UPDATE: A reminder that if you don't see your post right away, please wait 24 hours before re-posting. Odds are that it's your first post since we moved to vBulletin and it's simply held in moderation.

(Space)Time for a Giveaway!

Posted by Darius Wey in "Pocket PC Events" @ 08:00 AM

http://www.spacetime.us/

"SpaceTime 3.0 by SpaceTime Mathematics is a revolution in mathematics software with 2D, 3D, and time graphing with MobileCAS® for algebra and calculus. With features only available in Mathematica and MATLAB, SpaceTime is the most powerful cross-platform mathematics software ever developed for computers and mobile devices."

We're back with more copies of SpaceTime 3.0 to give away! Just like the contest that was held in May, we have one all-platforms license and two platform-specific licenses up for grabs. And, as always, the rules are simple. We've adopted a back-to-school theme for this contest, so to be in the running, simply make a post in this thread telling us how you'd use SpaceTime in an educational setting (or a commercial setting, if you're not a student or academic), and also the answer to "cos (0 degrees)", because we know you love number crunching. ;)

You have until 11:59am (GMT) on Monday, September 1, 2008 to get your entries in. Winners will be announced the following week. Good luck!

"I get more gadgets and stuff than I can shake a stick at, and frankly, I'm getting run out of my office with it all. So, I'm going to pass them on to you - the GBM reader. I love all of this stuff, but I figured it would be best to spread the love around. Here is the loot: 1 HP TC1100 Tablet PC + Docking Station + rubber flap, 1 Samsung Q1P Ultra-Mobile PC with extended battery and organizer case, 1 BatteryGeek.net Portable Powerstation, 1 HTC Tilt (unlocked), 1 HTC Advantage (unlocked), 1 Vista Ultimate..."

Entries are limited to one per person, and you have until 11:59pm (GMT) on Monday, May 19, 2008 to get them in. Four winners will be randomly selected from the pool of entries and announced the following week. Good luck!
