Windows Mobile 6.5


Nice to get hands on with the new version of Windows Mobile. It’s not a great leap forward more a nudge in the right direction. I prefer not to use the stylus and this is now possible (at last). Menu items that before needed a sharp thumb nail, at least, can now be selected with a blunt finger. Oh and not useful but love the rain drops running down the today screen when the local weather is crap (like today), followed by the regular swipe of a windscreen wiper blade – useless but fun.

What applications do I use every day?

Google mobile apps – including Google Maps and search. I use Google Maps ever day. Why call 118 118 when you can find local stuff easily and free. I also have Latitude turned on so when I am meeting people they know where I am, useful when meeting son after school.

MyMobiler – allow me to view the mobile on the PC screen and control the mobile with keyboard and mouse.

Nimbuzz – chat client that supports MSN, jabber, facebook and calls via Skype.

Opera mini 5 beta – best mobile browser available.
