    I have noticed another odd change in my Dash since installing Windows Mobile 6. It seems that reminders always vibrate regardless of whether the phone is set an audible profile or not. I've done some research and found other users in the same boat. T-Mobile has acknowledged (at least according to HoFo posters) that the glitch appears to be a software issue related to the Dash WM6 implementation. Although not necessarily damaging, it's a nuisance none-the-less; I don't always here the phone alerting me of a new appointment due to the fact it only vibrates. Anyone else encounter this problem ...

    I've just encountered the infamous "reset/reboot loop" on my WM6 Dash... This unfortunate situation is well documented at both Howard Forums and XDA-Developers. The problem seems related to WM6 on the Dash; however, operators are reluctant to point out the causal relationship: that the version of WM6 released by T-Mobile causes the phone to intermittently enter an infinite startup loop. T-Mobile has been replacing faulty phones, leading some users to speculate it's only earlier builds that are subject to the problem. This does not seem to be the case though, as newer phones appear to be ...

    The folks over at The Boy Genius Report have a new set of snaps up, this time it's the Motorola Q9M "Nelson". The gallery can be found here, and they've also posted a brief write-up here. Some interesting info: The Q9M also looks like it supports miniSD cards for memory expansion, and has a nice red glow around the d-pad. This Q9M brings back the scroll wheel that the GSM Q9 lacked. Another Verizon customization was the home screen. It displays shortcuts for commonly used applications like the camera, messaging, web, music in a circular pattern on the screen.

    According to msmobiles, the Toshiba G900 (revealed earlier this year at 3GSM) has recently been awarded FCC approval. This is great news for US readers, as it means the G900 is potentially one step closer to being released in the States. Which is good to know, considering this is not "just another" PPC phone. The G900 packs an impressive screen resolution of 800x480, USB hosting, 128/128 RAM/ROM, plus all the usual radios. This phone is one to watch, literally!

    Recently, tech blogs have been buzzing about an impending announcement from HTC, due on June 5th, 2007. While some have speculated what this may or may not encompass, Smartphonethoughts have it on good authority that HTC may indeed reveal some type of iPhone killer; a multitouch Elf variant, with iPhone like sliders. Interesting times... I certainly would welcome an enhanced Windows Mobile interface akin to the iPhone, at least as an alternative to the existing platform.

    Today it's the Glofiish X500+'s turn to be unboxed. Courtesy of the unwired, here are a great set of snaps. It's a nice looking GPS enabled VGA device, but it's lacking radios: no 3G (or EDGE according to the unboxer, typo?), which may be a major limitation to some users.
