ClintonFitch.com Tweaks the Touch Diamond and Touch Pro

Posted by Darius Wey in "Pocket PC Articles" @ 06:05 AM

"A few weeks ago I purchased a HTC Fuze from my local AT&T store. For those of you who are not familiar with the Fuze, this is the HTC Touch Pro that is sold in Europe and Asia but includes support for the 850/1900Mhz bands that AT&T uses for 3G here in the United States. Given that there are a lot of reviews out there on the Fuze, I won't be doing one here on ClintonFitch.com but I am going to show you how to do a bit of tweaking to make the Fuze more responsive and add some features to it. This will be the first of a series of articles outlining applications and registry tweaks you can do to enhance the user experience on your HTC Fuze, HTC Touch Pro or HTC Touch Diamond."

If you own a Touch Diamond or Touch Pro and wouldn't mind tweaking the appearance and performance of TouchFLO 3D, then take a look at the first part of a guide published by our friend, Clinton Fitch. It involves dipping one's toes in the registry, so as always, please be aware of the risks before proceeding.

MobileTechReview Examines the AT&T Fuze

Posted by Darius Wey in "Pocket PC Articles" @ 04:30 AM

"Some of us have been waiting months for this phone to hit the US, and it's a formidable successor to the HTC Tilt. In terms of looks and size, it's a flat out winner. Though thicker than QWERTY bar phones, its relatively small width and height mean it does feel overly large. The Fuze is feature-packed and call quality is good. But AT&T's heavy-handed branding, complete with a host of non-removable demo and subscription-ware make the phone seem less clean and responsive than the Sprint version. We'd like to sit down for a serious talk with the person who designed that annoying PTT button-- even if we intended to use that service, we wouldn't want to accidentally launch it nearly every time we handle the phone. On the upside, the Fuze has a superb VGA display, the second best web browser after the iPhone's Safari, and can handle all manner of syncing and email."

There's plenty to love about the AT&T Fuze, but according to MobileTechReview, the bloatware is a letdown. If you just picked up a Fuze, how are you finding it? Would you agree with MTR's assessment?

"Go the next level with the HTC FUZE(TM) now featuring a sleek new touch screen design. The multi-faceted HTC FUZE(TM) is a 3G tri-band HSDPA Windows Mobile® smartphone brought to you by AT&T, allowing you access to the world and a host of world class features. This powerful smartphone fuses technology with style. The large VGA touch screen includes HTC's one touch TouchFlo(TM) 3D user interface for quick access to your favorite features. Keep connected with email, text and instant messaging, Internet access, a personal organizer, video, satellite radio, and more - all at broadband speeds.

There'll be plenty of Touch Pros sitting under the tree this holiday season. To match Sprint's offering, AT&T is now selling the HTC Fuze for $299.99 after rebate on a two-year contract. Oh, and incidentally, if you think it's a little quiet on the VZW front, that's because it is.

SanDisk Promotes DRM-Free Music on microSD Card

Posted by Rocco Augusto in "Digital Home Hardware & Accessories" @ 04:00 AM

"SanDisk Corporation, a leading seller of MP3 players in the United States, today announced the company will promote DRM-free music from more than 50 new and emerging artists on a microSD card. This U.S.-based program is the first of its kind to use microSD cards, and helps launch the new 8GB (gigabyte) Sansa Fuze MP3 player. The “Sansa Sessions” microSD card is comprised of a collection of rock, pop, and hip hop songs, music videos, and photos from more than 30 labels. Featured artists include All Time Low, Ladytron, Magnet, Nada Surf, Of Montreal and The Coup."



You know, it's funny. Less than two years ago it seemed as though the main-stream music industry was on its last leg. With almost monthly reports of some poor sap (or grandmother) being sued for alleged file sharing, Sony violating their paying customers computers with rootkits, and not to mention the RIAA running amok as if they were Judge Dredd himself - it can almost be considered a miracle that I can sit here and write this post while listening to a fairly high quality legally purchased DRM free album of one of my favorite bands. While the days of yesteryear have left a horrible taste in any music lover’s mouth, times are changing... and quickly! As cool as this Sansa Sessions gimmick is, you do have to purchase a SanDisk Sansa Fuze MP3 player to redeem this preloaded microSD card... but hey, at the end of the day you receive a free microSD card that can be used in almost anything nowadays and it is preloaded with DRM-free content. All in all, this isn't a bad deal if you ask me.
