    One of the features present in most devices that run the Android operating system is the ability to place and receive voice-over-IP (VoIP) calls through a built-in UI compatible with many VoIP providers. While third party VoIP solutions have been available on Android for some time, Google recently introduced this feature in their 2.3.3 release. Cellular carriers are not so keen to allow VoIP on their systems however, as they see it pulling customers away from their higher-tier packages that include more minutes, or long-distance packages. Samsung decided to pull VoIP support from the ...

These modifications enable the development of custom ROMs such as the popular CyanogenMod 7. S-ON (also known as @secuflag) is a security measure implemented by HTC that blocks the ability to write to the smartphone's flash memory, preventing ...

    INTRODUCTION     The following review was originally posted at Pocket.co.il, Israel's premiere Pocket PC website, and has been translated by Eli Haboosh for pocketnow.com readers.     When the hw6515 was brought to the market, at first look it seemed as if HP wanted to redeem themselves from the error they have done with the h63xx.

    INTRODUCTION     There are a number of excellent desktop computer genealogical database programs - but genealogists spend a lot of time away from their desktops, in archives and libraries, at meetings where rare printed resources are available, visiting relatives to collect oral history and even overseas visiting the Salt Lake City LDS genealogical facilities or the ancestral streets and farms. Until recently family historians had to carry heavy bags bulging with notebooks (the paper kind) and printouts "in the field" and then had to spend many hours transcribing their ...

    Those of you who are older will remember the catch phrase from MTV during the late 1980's and early 1990's. "I want my MTV" referred to people wanting their music, their way, when they wanted it. MTV's hay-day may largely be over, but what follows isn't about MTV, music, or even a desire to return to the days of parachute pants and The Plasmatics. Its about ROM upgrades, support files and fixes; and what device owners can expect and are entitled to from the OEM's they've purchase PDA's from. Read on in the latest installment of Christopher Spera's Apples and Oranges: "I Want My MTV..."

    Source: InfoSync Last year, some of the most interesting hardware shown at Comdex Chicago was in the Korean pavilion. No less than four companies were showing off PDA prototypes running either Windows CE or Linux. The best of show was Milletech, who were showing off a 480x640 true-VGA screen in a PDA-sized device that would run Windows CE or Linux. That made it to my Christmas 2001 list very quickly.
