    If you're the type that quickly and easily gets tired of the at times boring, and "normal" drab that ships as the Windows 7 UI, Rainmeter has something for you -- A Windows Phone 7 complete UI skin for Windows on the desktop. The skin is quite complete with over 30 different panels to interact with, giving the normal desktop Windows a complete overhaul. How well will a mostly finger-based UI handle your standard keyboard and mouse? That I will answer for you after a few days with this skin. ...
  • HTC HD2 not getting WinPhone 7 upgrade after all?

    The hands down best WinMo phone out there is the HTC HD2. With it's massive screen and blazing fast 1GHz Snapdragon processor means even lowly WinMo 6.x runs like a dream (most of the time). With Windows Phone 7 on the map now however, the HD2 has lost some luster, especially considering the hardware that's in the pipeline that will showcase WinPhone 7. And then, rumors of a WinPhone 7 upgrade for the HD2 made it's rounds to the relief of many HD2 owners, solidifying at least a few more months...

    Worried that Windows Phone 7 won't let you play with multiple apps at once a la Apple? Well, if the leaked Windows Phone 7 development policies are anything to go by, there may be some hope. According to dev policies, "preemptive" backgrounding will be enabled. However, apps must pass through an app submission and provisioning process for further scrutiny -- fruit anyone? Much like the Zune environment which the Windows Phone 7 OS pulls from, Silverlight, XNA, and .NET Compact Framewor...
  • Windows Mobile 7 details start to trickle out. “Bag of hurt” in the making?

    Anyone who spends even a smidgen of time in the mobile world knows that over the last couple of years, a lot has changed. As little as three years ago, Android, webOS, and the iPhone didn't exist. In the here and now, trying to imagine such a world is almost impossible. With each successive newcomer, Windows Mobile, the once defacto smartphone standard and mobile giant, has continued to slowly lose market share and relevance. Windows Mobile hasn't exactly been one of my favorite mobile O...

    Windows Mobile diehards, all 13 of you gather 'round. Microsoft's CFO Peter Klein has given us all a grand display of his loose lips by sharing that Mobile World Congress in Barcelona will in fact be the home of the world's first WinMo 7 unveiling. Can anyone say saweet?! For a quick refresher, WinMo 7 will bring with it legitimate support for capacitive screens, a heavily *fingers crossed* reworked Windows Mobile UI, and speed/navigation improvements across the board. All-in-all, for s...
  • Android or WinMo? Gen. Y DualBOOT says “Both”.

    WinMo isn't doing so hot right now but Microsoft hopes to remedy that with WinMo 7 which we may or may not be seeing in a few short weeks at MWC. Android on the other hand is enjoying a massive growth in popularity. Both OS's do share a common trait however -- they're easily tweakable and available on a variety of hardware. If you are having a hard time choosing between one or the other, take comfort in knowing that the answer to "Which OS?" will soon be easy -- Both! The ever talented fol...
  • HTC HD2 video showing TMO branding all but confirms what we already knew…

    Regardless of your opinion on Windows Mobile, you have to admit that the HTC HD2 -- all 4.3" of it's glass faced frontal beauty -- is a drop dead gorgeous phone. Currently however, US citizens are left without any official channels to pick up a subsidized or even a US version of the device. That's all set to change in the not too distant future. A video (below) showing a new "2.0.1" ROM showcases among other things, a very familiar magenta boot image that goes "Stick Together" -- a TMO sl...
  • HTC HD2 to be graced with Windows Mobile 7

    The HTC HD2 is currently the top dog of the WinMo world. It has a massive 4.3" screen which is gargantuan when compared to any other smartphone. Even considering the fact that it is hobbling along with WinMo 6.5 prettified with HTC's Sense UI, the HTC HD2 is a hot phone. Not to mention, the snappy 1GHz processor tucked away within is another reason to gloat over this fine piece of gadgetry. So it comes as no surprise that HTC made a statement announcing a Windows Mobile 7 upgrade for the HTC...
  • The original Windows 6.5.1 — now 7 mockups spied!

    Images Property of Pocket Now **Update: Just in case....the bottom images are the new, leaked goodness. The top images are irrelevant relics of a dying dinosaur. I didn't think I would ever construct a sentence, in any language which consisted of Windows Mobile and "pretty damn good" in the same sentence. Based on physical looks alone, Microsoft is finally moving into 2008 with the mockups seen above. One things that is certainly eye brow raising is that according to Pocket Now's tipster,...
  • More evidence of a T-Mobile HTC HD2 launch?

    Photoshop is a wonderful tool. It is also a very deceiving tool. With that said, does the signage above look legit or fake? Tales of a HTC HD2/TMO release isn't new as rumors have been popping here and there telling the same tale. The picture above however while not exclusively mentioning "HTC" or "HD2" anywhere comes with a matching image and specs. Definitely intriguing. I wouldn't put it past TMO. With as much as they're trying to leapfrog carriers in hopes of catching a higher spot on...
