    Pocket PC Italia have published some very nice photos of the Windows Mobile based Motorola MPx Pocket PC Phone in action. Between the built-in GPRS capabilities and the possibility of integrated WiFi & 1Bluetooth, this stands to be one class defining device. I will admit that at times I have been jealous when friends have shown off Palm-based phone devices; mostly due to the fact that they have had some creative form factors. However, I believe that may all change with the introduction of this Pocket PC Phone device. Innovation is always something I am excited to see these days, and I ...

    WHAT'S HOT    Vaja has classified the HT31 as part of their classic lineup of cases. The word classic certainly does this case justice. Vaja has done a beautiful job perfecting their two-tone colored fliptop and snap closure case in this incarnation.    The case when closed maintains a veneer of professionalism and velour. Vaja has a new raised and refreshed logo at the base of the flip cover, which does nothing but compliment an already classy design. The two-tone colors are a welcome change from the typical black OEM supplied case that came with the device. PRODUCT ...

    There have been a lot of rumors spreading around about which carrier will carry which Smartphones and Pocket PC Phone Editions, with specific emphasis on where Motorola will be deploying their line. Many have speculated that T-Mobile may be completely far away from entering the Smartphone arena as a carrier. Let me just dispell those rumors right now. It is my feeling that T-Mobile is actually very close to release, I wouldn't be surprised one bit if something was announced in the coming weeks. Don't believe me? Well, check out one of the Motorola MPx200 engineering samples below... looks ...

        In this somewhat brief review, I'll be taking a look at Vaja's newest addition to the I-Volution series, the Aptus case for the HP iPAQ 2200 Series Pocket PCs. WHAT'S HOT    This is definitely not your typical leather case. Vaja really shines through with a gem here since this case is comprised of both leather and layers of ABS plastic on the top flip cover. This gives the case an unparalleled sturdiness that really would come in handy when wrapped around a lifestyle device such as a Pocket PC. If you're one that doesn't discriminate when deciding where to take ...
