Windows Mobile 6.1 Device Upgrades

i love it when a Photochop comes together! 

As the announced upgrades to Windows Mobile 6.1 roll in, this post will keep a running list of links to those upgrades.

No idea if the upgrades will be time-limited as many of the Windows Mobile 6.0 upgrades were, but it’s almost a given that you will have to sign-up or register your device to get access to a ROM update for it.

CONFIRMED UPGRADES

HTC

TyTn II = Europe (Registration required)

Windows Mobile 6.0 Device Upgrades

 Batten down your hatches!

NOTE: This is the first information transplant from the now-deceased Funboard.

Thanks in a large part to MS offering Windows Mobile 6 free to OEMs & mobile operators for the purpose of creating upgrades for existing WM5 devices, there have been a slew of new upgrade announcements lately.

This post will keep a running list of announced upgrades for current WM5 devices to WM6

FYI: Availability for most of these upgrades have been announced as May-July.

If you hear a rumor, post it up. We’ll deploy the robot horde to verify. Here’s hoping the list isn’t a short one…

Inside Outside The Android

Holy CRAP! It's the final Cylon model!

Well…it’s been little more than Android-a-palooza here at the Funlab today.

I guess the robot horde was more than a tad pent-up, what with the interminable wait for a couple of other telecom-ish items to either arrive or drop from Microsoft, Palm and AT&T.

So when OHA offered up the Android SDK yesterday like a sacrificial lamb…

The mechanized wolfpack here at the Funplex pounced on it like, well…

A very pouncy thing.

But we’ve managed to get some quality time with the emulator, and grabbed some screenies for you to peep. So many that we’re starting a whole new Funlab series on installing and using the Android SDK. 

Funlab 0.x, to be exact.

Try not to drool all into your keyboard.

Strictly For My Ninjas

Don't hate the ninja...hate the silent snap-kick.

This post goes out to the BSDA, KYSBSUG, CinPA, and anybody else I’ve spoken to about Windows Mobile 6.

Here’s something that will knock your shurikens off…

Check out this wicked awesome graphical navigation tool for the Windows Mobile 6 SDK.

Superbadass, actually.

Don’t panic.

This graphic’s hotlinked to the original in MSDN.

Suh-weet work by John Kennedy. Thanks to Loke for the heads-up.

device emulator v2 index

with the official release of device emulator version 2, it’s time to start a new index here at the funlab specifically for that release.

i’ll dispense with the preliminaries of why standalone device emulator is a godsend for non-developers. if you want to see that, you can read the preamble i cooked up for device emulator v1. suffice to say, that hasn’t changed one iota.
