ClintonFitch.com Tweaks the Touch Diamond and Touch Pro

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

http://www.clintonfitch.com/reviews...pt1/default.asp

"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.

If you don't mind a mere 2.8" QVGA touch screen and just dual-band UMTS/HSDPA/HSUPA connectivity, then there are plenty of reasons to love the Xda Guide. Our pal, Arne, at the::unwired has taken some great shots of the device. Click for a peek at the gallery.

O2 Germany Announces New Xda Guide Smartphone

Posted by Paul Martin in "Pocket PC Hardware" @ 02:00 AM

http://www.theunwired.net/?item=unv...bile-smartphone

"O2 Germany today announced the new O2 Xda Guide, its latest Xda smartphone running Windows Mobile 6.1 which will replace the Xda orbit 2. The Xda Guide comes in an O2 exclusive design and is running on Microsoft's Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional. The Xda Guide is powered by a Qualcomm MSM 7225 CPU at 528 MHz and features GSM/GPRS/EDGE as well as UMTS/HSDPA/HSUPA in addition to Bluetooth 2.0, WiFi b/g and GPS. The Xda Guide comes with a 2.8" QVGA touchscreen and sports a 3.2 megapixel camera, 256 MB RAM and 512 MB ROM which can be expanded by microSD cards. A 1 GB microSD card is part of the sales package and holds TomTom Navigator 7 (with maps for Germany, Austria and Switzerland). The O2 Xda Guide will be available exclusive from O2 Germany from February next year. A price wasn't given today."

The new Xda Guide looks like a nice device, especially with the included GPS mapping setup with TomTom. As Arne Hess notes above in his the::unwired coverage, it will replace the outgoing Xda Orbit 2. It receives an upgrade of double capacity for both RAM and ROM, as well as the 6.1 Windows Mobile OS and a faster CPU. While you can get the 6.1 upgrade for the Orbit 2 free from O2 Germany, the upgrade only includes Opera Mobile 8.65, while the new Xda Guide offers Opera Mobile 9.5. You can check out the original German press release at the O2 Germany site.
