I really hope TMob manage to ship an update AKU3.0 ROM for the Vario II in a reasonable time period.

vCard by SMS, AT LAST!!!!!!

Any news on how the TV-Out is implemented Paul, what hardware is required, whether the Hermes can support this????? Or does external display refer to the exterior display on clamshells..............god, I hope not.

A sneak preview for you of the forthcoming Windows AKU3 Windows Mobile 5 update, live from Mobius Boston 2006.

Slides below, text to follow! :(

Woo-hoo....there's some neat looking stuff in there!! Any mention of synchronisation improvments - like being able to sync SMS messages with an Outlook folder on the desktop (a la Jeyo), or the ability to export them to an external format (CSV, TXT etc.)??? I've started playing with the Vista version of Activesync - is there any more on that? What about a new "remote control" option, like the horrendously clunky "ActiveSync Remote Display" - something so we can manage our devices from our desktop?

I'm liking the "SMS over GPRS" feature; might mean I can send SMS messages on New Year's Eve now :rolleyes: - just hope the networks see the positive side of it and put the technology in place

Keep it coming Paul....we're hungry for more!!!

Mark.

I would imagine we're looking at a good few months before we get AKU3 for the Vario II - just look at how long the AKU2 ROMs took to emerge.

This can be customised by editing an csv in the windows directory. The network or OEM will chose the pop / imap services which are in the list.

Personally, not many of these new features would improve my use of the device.

How about:

1) Non-training voice dial, al-la Nokia style
2) RSS Reader in OS or IE
3) 'Delete all' email option
4) Auto time update when roaming
5) Prevent email polling when roaming

If you select return receipt in WM5 you get a text back when it gets delivered. If you have return receipts on all the time this can get quite messy. With SonyEricsson when you select return receipt you get a nice tick beside the text message in your sent box. Much tidier.

I think for most people the chance to choose the operating language will be a plus on a ppc , something the smartphone has always had , it would mean if orange upgrade the m3000 the chance to finally change the language to english instead of the dutch which the phone i currently have, it would mean expats living abroad can finally have their own language on a unit bought in the country they live in :rolleyes:

Damn it! Can't they impliment audio to BT headsets (without the reg hack so its just a constant connection thus draining power)!? :rolleyes:

Edit: What i mean is when sound gets sent to the audio stack it then gets diverted to the bt audio stack.

Couldn't agree more although the equaliser in WMP 10 will be most welcome. My hit list would definitely have the auto time update. I believe its already available on other operating systems.

BTW will the upgrade be featured in ROM upgrades that we download for existing kit or will it be for brand new handsets only.??

And also...the recent ROM upgrade to Imate SP5 etc was supposed to have fixed the "UK busy signal",, it hasn't on mine. Anyone else found this???

How about adding stronger support to VPN solutions, neither PPTP or L2TP/IPsec works satisfying for me right now...
