Verizon Offers Firmware Update for HTC Touch Pro

Posted by Jon Westfall in "Pocket PC Software" @ 09:00 AM

http://www.phonenews.com/verizon-to...ail-added-8089/

"Verizon Wireless has approved a firmware update for the HTC Touch Pro, which makes three major improvements. The update, firmware version 1.08, adds the long-awaited unlocked GPS support. PhoneNews.com previously reported that Verizon agreed to unlock GPS on the Samsung Saga, Samsung Omnia, and HTC Touch Pro. This is the first of three official updates that will make good on that promise, made last year. PhoneNews.com has confirmed that the update enables standard GPS functionality in Google Maps, as well as Windows Live Search for Mobile. In addition, the update adds Visual Voicemail support to the Touch Pro. The Samsung Omnia was the first device to add Visual Voicemail. But, like all other Verizon devices, Visual Voicemail will cost $3/month."

Some good news for those on the big V who like the Touch Pro. GPS is now unlocked, Live search, and Visual Voicemail. Not bad for those under Verizon's thumb of authority.

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.

Touch Pro and Omnia Appear on Verizon Wireless

Posted by Jon Westfall in "Pocket PC Hardware" @ 03:30 PM

The two devices currently vying for my "daily driver" position - the Samsung Omnia and the HTC Touch Pro will soon be options on Verizon Wireless. VZW announced the Omnia and Touch Pro this past week, and it looks like Verizon-ites will have a chance to snag a great device when they make their appearence in stores. Now if I could just pick between the two!

Touch Pro Reviewed at Mobile Tech Review, 4WinMobile

Posted by Jon Westfall in "Pocket PC Hardware" @ 09:30 AM

"The HTC Touch Pro is undeniably one of the hottest PDA phones of 2008. And in the US, just as with the HTC Touch Diamond, Sprint customers get to sample it first. Previously available only as a GSM import with no US 3G, the Sprint version is the first carrier-branded Touch Pro. Rumor has it that AT&T will launch their version soon as the Fuze, and Verizon will have a version with a slower CPU and less memory (again, these are just rumors as of this writing). What is the Touch Pro? It's the keyboard-ed version of the Diamond, and it's light years ahead of the Mogul on Sprint or the Tilt on AT&T. It's smaller, more modern looking, has a flush VGA touch screen display and all the bells and whistles you'd expect on a flagship smartphone. Specs include Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional, a 528MHz CPU, 288 megs of RAM and 512 megs of flash storage, an SDHC microSD card slot, GPS, WiFi, Bluetooth and a 3.2 megapixel camera. For messaging and content creation types, the most salient feature is the Touch Pro's slide--out QWERTY keyboard."

The Touch Pro is getting quite a lot of attention as of late. With the review quoted above and another at 4WinMobile, it is interesting to see it getting some very high marks from reviewers around the world. I'm certainly interested in it as well as the Omnia - what about you?

Windows Mobile: Bring The Excitement Back

Posted by Jon Westfall in "Pocket PC Talk" @ 12:30 AM

Five years ago in 2003, I was a serious September wreck. I was in my last year as an undergraduate student, a new follower of Windows Mobile, and seriously obsessed with the i-Mate Pocket PC. It was rumored, debuted (in early October) and drove me to do some really strange things to finally get my hands on one in November. Four years ago I had new device fever over the HP iPAQ h6315. Three years ago I was absolutly crazy for an i-Mate JASJAR. Two years ago I had to have an iPAQ 6915. And last year the Kaiser called my name. If it's nearing fall, Jon's obsessing over a device. This year I thought the Touch Pro would be my new love, but perhaps not. You see, now that the Touch Pro is surfacing, I have come to a sad realization: It doesn't excite me. Read more...
