Motorola PHOTON 4G is the hottest phone on Sprint

August 17th, 2011

The Motorola PHOTON 4G boasts what I feel is the greatest spec list of any phone on Sprint today.

I have been waiting for quite a long time for a full featured ‘Super Phone’ to show up and blow away the competition!

Currently I am rocking the HTC Hero. A great phone…until you get hold of some of these new devices that is.

I was completely blown away by the speed of the PHOTON!

The camera alone gives a new definition to ‘point and shoot’. My Hero currently has a ‘Point and Wait’ camera. This is really good, if you like waiting until the entire shot is gone, before the photo is taken. The video gives you a taste of how powerful the PHOTON is. (yes…that’s an HD Dock!)

You deserve to be lightning fast. Up to 10x faster than 3G, the Motorola PHOTON 4G from Sprint allows you to download media in seconds, even a concert from your girlfriend at Wembley Stadium. Enjoy multitasking around the world with no interruptions as Motorola PHOTON 4G delivers the speed you want when you want it. Click here to learn more:

p.s. Did you know that the PHOTON is “Webtop Enabled‘? This is huge… literally!

Samsung Mondi Reviewed

August 22nd, 2009


Continuing with the Samsung Mondi and its Widget Loving Smartbook self. CNET Kent German reviewed it and it is a good opportunity to have a good look at it running and decide if it is for you.

However i must say that Kent got some serious disdain (bias even?) against Windows Mobile and maybe against the whole Smartbook concept.but hey maybe he is just getting old. (kidding…i think) still worth a look.

FEWidgets Ultimate

August 22nd, 2009


Sure, Samsung TouchWIZ is now a platform open for third party developers. But for over half a year before that. The Windows Mobile prodigal hackers of Xda-Developer got their own version of that named FEWidgets.

FEWidgets Ultimate is the update and ongoing project for that. The original works for Windows Mobile 5,6 and 6.1 but requires both Compact .NET and Flash installed for it to work.  Ultimate that is the new version is Native to the device but this comes to a price and only Windows Mobile 6.1  and 6.5 will be able to use it. So if you got a Windows Mobile 5 or 6 device i recommend you to still go and install the original FEWidgets since there are dozens of widgets available and it is a good way to add something to refresh your old device.

FEWidgets Ultimate Two         

Ultimate just like its predecessor is to be used in your Today screen. in the case of 6.1 that is straight forward, in the case of 6.5 you may end up having it into a new panel in your device.

Here are the highlights of FEWidgets Ultimate

  • Haptic feedback
  • Multiple Layouts/Pages support (up to 4)
  • Multiple Windows for each page with 0 loading time
  • Support for Landscape/Portrait modes
  • Skinnable though XML files (or just modifying the images)
  • Scriptable through javascript
  • Extensible though C++ plugins

Some of the widgets included with FEWidgets are:

  • Operator Name
  • RSS Feed Reader
  • Appointments
  • Tasks
  • Contact widget
  • Battery/Phone signal Strength indicator
  • Background Image Changer
  • Quick Dial
  • Calendar (when tapped will link to \Windows\Calendar.lnk)
  • Weather. Shows you the weather for today. Current temperature and forecasted Min/Max for today.
For Windows Mobile 6.1 i think this is the best choice if you don’t have a TouchWIZ ( a Samsung WM Phone). In the case of Windows Mobile 6.5 its use is more a matter of taste since  WM 6.5 will come with its own Mobile Widget Engine.
