    Google HTC Phone announcement imminent

    October 30, 2007 |

    Rumors are flying around the internet again stating that Google is poised to make an announcement on their Google Phone (gPhone). The Wall Street Journal is reporting that within two weeks, Google will be making an announcement about their "advanced software and services that would allow handset makers to bring Google-powered phones to market by the middle of next year." No one knows really what Google will be announcing since the rumors vary from simply Google Software, Google open source operating system, to an HTC made device powered by ad supported Google OS. One thing is certain, I'm betting most people are getting tired of all these rumors going around without actually seeing anything from Google.

    PocketCM Keyboard Enhances HTC

    October 29, 2007 |

    PocketCM Keyboard is one of the best virtual keyboard options for windows mobile users.  Most HTC products that do not feature a qwerty keypad suffer from not having a finger friendly text input system until now.  PocketCM Keyboard gives you an enhanced user experience close to that of the iPhone.  The keys on the keyboard are large enough to use with your fingers rather than a stylus. It's visible feedback system helps reduce error while at the same time show you which key you are pressing. 

    My favorite feature is the software's ability to be skinned.  For those of you who like to create your own customized look for you HTC phones,  this software gives you the freedom to do as you please.

    HTC X9500 Shift available for preorder in Europe

    The HTC X9500 Shift has started popping up all over the internet on European retailer sites for pre-order.  Several of the sites are claiming release dates ranging from November 20th to the 29th.  For those of you not familiar with the HTC Shift, it is HTC's new UMPC device which features Windows Vista as well as Windows Mobile 6 Professional.  It will be the first device ever to feature both operating systems. 

    There is still a  lot of excitement around the hTC Shift even though some recent review of the pre-production model have shown great disappointment with how WM6 runs on the device.

    HTC Shift features SnapVUE™, an always-on mode that provides you instant access to critical information — including e-mail previews, local weather, calendar, and SMS — even if the device is not switched on. Push e-mail gives you instant alerts whenever you have new Outlook® e-mails.
