Free PIM backup for PPC/SmartPhone

May 26, 2007

Since I’m planning to move to the HTC Herald (aka P4350) that T-Mobile’s offering as the Wing, I’m looking for a good PIM backup application — one that can save off my text messages and call logs (contacts, etc. are already saved via my Exchange account). I found PIM Backup over at xda-developers. It’s free and seems to do it all.

Found this leather case on eBay using this search. Price seems good but varies from a dollar or two to about 6 and International shipping looks to add about another $6.

Speaking of Batteries: BatteryStatus

May 25, 2007

BatteryStatus shows the status of your PDA’s battery; things like power-drain, temperature and such. And, actually, the “and such” part is pretty extensive! It comes in two versions, a Freeware and an Extended. Both are still free, as in no-cost, but you can do a lot more with the Extended version and it would appear that the author has plans to eventually charge for it. The documentation for both versions is available through that first link but it only contains a download link for the Freeware version. The extended version is available from this thread in the xda-developers forums as is an extensive discussion of it, what you can make it do, and how to go about it.

New phone coming from T-Mobile – HTC Herald

May 15, 2007

Really known as the HTC 4350, this phone is supposed to be introduced by T-Mobile USA next week (5/21 is what everyone’s saying) and I plan to get one. It runs the new Windows Mobile 6 (Professional Edition, I believe is what Microsoft calls it — Standard Edition is for Smartphones). Good rReview at MyMobile911 has an article on unboxing it as well as a few others.
