NetFront Browser v4.0 for Windows Mobile promises faster JavaScript

ACCESS has launched a new version of the NetFront web browser for Windows Mobile 5.0 and newer devices. The key improvement over NetFront 3.5 is that ACCESS says NetFront v4.0 Concept Version is 20x faster when it comes to JavaScript execution, which should make a huge difference when it comes to rendering web pages and web apps that rely heavily on JavaScript. Like most other mobile web...

Now you can browse Windows Mobile Marketplace on the web

Want to know what kind of apps are available for Windows Mobile 6.5, but don't have a phone running the operating system yet? Or just want to look for apps on a screen with a resolution higher than 640 x 480? Microsoft has launched a web version of the Windows Marketplace. Users can browse the web store without an account. If you sign in you can also purchase programs that will be installed on...

Windows Mobile 6.5.1 on the way

When Microsoft launched Windows Mobile 6.5 earlier this month, the latest version of the company's operating system for cellphones and mobile devices was met with lukewarm (if not hostile) reviews. In a nutshell, the biggest complaint is that the operating system was essentially unchanged from the previous few versions and didn't offer much to convince users to stick with the platform instead of...

Windows Mobile 6.5 review roundup

Microsoft has pulled back the thin veil that was covering Windows Mobile 6.5 and launched its next generation operating system for mobile phones. And it's pretty much exactly what you would expect based on all the information that's been coming out over the past year or so. That's to say, it appears to be a minor, mostly cosmetic update to Windows Mobile 6.1. A number of tech news sites have...

Opera Mobile 9.7 beta is live, but it's no Safari

It's been quite a while since I used a Windows Mobile handset for an extended amount of time. Recently I got the chance to play with an HTC Touch Diamond, and it happened to coincide nicely with the preview release of Opera 9.7 beta. Good as the new browser might be, I found it to be a step backward from Safari on my iPod Touch. I'm also in full agreement with CNet's Jessica Dalcourt, who said...

Windows Mobile Marketplace apps will run on up to 5 devices

Microsoft is planning to open a Windows Marketplace for Mobile store that lets you purchase and install software directly from a Windows Mobile phone. You know, kind of like Apple's iPhone App Store. You probably already knew that. But here's what you probably didn't know: When you purchase an application from Microsoft's store, you'll be able to install it on up to 5 Windows Mobile 6.5 devices....

Microsoft: Windows Mobile 6.5 isn't really complete

A group of Microsoft folks got together at the TechEd conference yesterday to discuss the upcoming launch of Windows Mobile 6.5. They talked about widgets, the new Windows Marketplace app store, and about how Silverlight won't be offered. But the most surprising admission was the fact that Microsoft doesn't really consider the Windows Mobile 6.5 user interface to be "complete." Responding to a...

Windows Mobile Marketplace photos leaked, rules released

There's a bit more information coming out about Microsoft's answer to the iPhone App Store. A member of the PPC Geeks forums somehow managed to get a brief glimpse of the Windows Mobile Marketplace on his phone running a hacked version of Windows Mobile 6.5. His access appears to have been revoked, but he managed to get a few screengrabs before he was booted. And Microsoft has published a list of...

Spb release Mobile Shell 3.0 for Windows Mobile

Spb Mobile Shell is a utility that gives Windows Mobile phones a completer user interface overhaul. It can be used as a replacement for the Windows Mobile Today Screen and program launchers. The latest version features a 3D carousel view that lets you flip from one screen to another, and a user customizable Today Screen replacement based on widgets for contacts, weather, and other information....

Windows Mobile 6.5 coming May 11, WM 6.5 phones not so much

Microsoft has announced that it will announce the launch of Windows Mobile 6.5 (which we already know an awful lot about) on May 11th at the Tech Ed 2009 conference. Odd are you won't actually see any cellphones running this operating system until this fall. But Microsoft is holding a "kick off" presentation next month. The Tech Ed conference is aimed at IT professionals and developers, and...

Microsoft to make Windows Mobile OS upgrades easier?

While Apple and Google have let iPhone and Google Android users add new features and operating system upgrades by downloading and installing software over the air, things have always been much more complicated on Windows Mobile devices. The earliest Windows CE devices could only be upgraded by removing a ROM chip and replacing it with a new one obtained from the device manufacturer. If you had a...

Windows Mobile 6.5 wallpapers

Windows Mobile users have been able to choose themes for their home screen, start menu, and toolbars for years. But usually Windows Mobile phones and PDAs come with just a handful of backgrounds and themes to choose from. It looks like Microsoft plans to spruce things up a bit by offering a number of designer themes for Windows Mobile 6.5 from actual designers including Isaac Misrahi, Ron Arad,...

Windows Marketplace only for Windows Mobile 6.5 and up

Microsoft is preparing to launch Windows Marketplace for mobile phones. The Marketplace is Microsoft's answer to the iPhone App Store. It will allow Windows Mobile users to find purchase, and download mobile applications directly from their phones. But as we discovered this week, the service will only be available to users with Windows Mobile 6.5 phones. Microsoft has no plans to release a version...

Microsoft previews Windows Mobile App store, alters developer fees

Microsoft is unveiling more information about the Windows Mobile Marketplace, including a policy change. While the company had initially decided that developers would have to pay a $99 fee not only to list applications in Microsoft's answer to the iPhone App Store, but every time they wanted to issue an update. Now Microsoft has changed that policy. Developers can issue application updates for...

Is this what Windows Mobile 7 will look like?

Sure, we're still waiting for Windows Mobile 6.5 to actually ship. But word on the street is that Windows Mobile 7 is going to be much cooler anyway. Unfortunately, it's not likely to show up on any cellphones until 2010 at the earliest. But an anonymous tipster sent a few screenshots to wmpoweruser that may give us an idea of what the next, next generation version of Windows Mobile will look...
