iSilo Review at Pocketnow.com

07:45 PM by Alexander Turcic in Archive | iSilo/X

Roderick Pommier posted a nice review of iSilo for PPC at pocketnow.com. His conclusion: "Isilo is an indispensable part of my Pocket PC arsenal, if you frequently find interesting web content Isilo is a must buy. Isilo also gives you access to hundreds of documents already converted to Isilo."

Pros

  • Handles website conversion very well
  • New features are frequently added
  • Excellent functionality as reader
  • Highly configurable, many options available to customize your experience

Cons

  • Not able to update content without desktop companion
  • Feature set can be intimidating at first
  • More options on for customizing screen regions, perhaps closing the document or go full screen

Apple's 4th generation iPod - prototype

11:59 AM by Alexander Turcic in Archive | Portable Audio/Video

According to information leaked to AppleInsider, the next Apple iPod is due sometime this year with added video capabilities.

"When a user connects one end of the video-cable into the iPod's new dock connector and the other end into the TV, it will switch the iPod into video mode," the source said, which then allows the user to display video clips located in the iPod's 'movies' directory.

In other words, the iPod v4.0 is not a movie player by itself, but a remote harddrive with playback capabilities to an external video source.

HP iPAQ: Roadmap 2004

10:58 AM by Alexander Turcic in Archive | Handhelds and Smartphones

I recommend you visit Brighthand who gives some details on the upcoming iPAQs for 2004. According to Brighthand, HP isn't planning to release any new handhelds for more than two months. And long-time iPAQ users will be disappointed to learn that the company is phasing out the use of expansion packs, which won't be necessary anymore with all the built-in functionality and the availability of CompactFlash or SDIO cards.

One new iPAQ on the list will be a new hx4700 model with 128MB of RAM, plus more than 20MB in a File Store. Another device, the hx2700, a replacement for the h5550, will include a fingerprint scanner, which could be useful for security protection in larger cooperations.

Portable Light through OLEDs

05:09 AM by Colin Dunstan in Archive | Handhelds and Smartphones

Imagine a world where the news and information you want to see is available in non-traditional ways -- you can find the weather and the latest stock quotes from the ultimate handheld communication device -- the size of a pen.

Universal Display Corporation (NASDAQ:PANL, PHLX: PNL), who is a leading developer of organic light emitting devices (OLED), wants to make this possible. The company will present a collection of new design concepts for 'Portable Light' at Wired's NextFest in San Francisco, May 14th to 16th . This exhibit will show the work of students from Harvard University's Graduate School of Design who participated in the Soft Design Studio, taught by Professor Sheila Kennedy and sponsored by Universal Display.

The company is still losing money, but it could be one of the rising stars among small caps companies in near future.

Apple IPod Mini Reflects Personality

04:53 AM by Colin Dunstan in Archive | Portable Audio/Video

Some pooh-poohed the assorted colors of Apple Computer Inc.'s iPod mini as frivolous, but the digital music players are a smash hit and have become fashion accessories in and of themselves, says Duncan Martell from Reuters.

Too bad those sleek gadgets still take more than six weeks to be shipped (from the time the order was placed). And on EBay Inc., iPod minis -- sealed and in the box -- were listed for auction with multiple bids topping $300 (regular price is around $250).

Only time will tell if the iPod mini has indeed "resonated with the digerati", as industry analysts like to predict.

PalmOne Treo 600 Software Update

05:50 PM by TadW in Archive | Handhelds and Smartphones

The update is initially only for those who own a Sprint version of the phone, with other carriers still in the process of testing the update on their networks.

The Sprint update is downloadable now, while updates for other carriers such as Cingular, AT&T Wireless and T-Mobile are listed as "coming soon."

Among the issues addressed with the Sprint release are enhancements to the browser and e-mail program as well as enhancements designed to improve the device's audio-quality reliability.
