Dave’s Ipaq – John Dvorak doesnt think the 6500 will be a hit? @ Dave’s iPAQ

I read an article on Investors.com written by John Dvorak a well respected technology analyst. Unfortunately I think John is a bit off line and should really understand where HP’s market with this unannounced phone is… The enterprise.. John I am shocked at you of all people to comment on a device that hasn’t officially been announced nevertheless base your professional opinion on speculation…Whats even worse for an Investors publication..What are your thoughts?

So where does H-P go from here?

It’s trying to reestablish itself as the market leader in the big storage area networks and continues to promote its printers in what has turned into a razor blade business with the printers being the razors and the ink being the blades.

All this may be beside the point as H-P (HPQ) may be reinventing itself as a phone maker to compete with the likes of Motorola (MOT), Nokia (NOK), Samsung and Sony-Ericsson.

H-P intends to enter the fray with an expensive smart phone called the iPAQ H6515. Yet to be officially announced the online gossip sheets even have pictures of the device which essentially is a PDA that doubles as a phone. Only this one is loaded to the gills with features.

One version will have a camera, GPS, Bluetooth, GSM phone and full featured PDA computer. The previous phones done by H-P have utilized WiFi for potential VOIP usage, but the infrastructure has not developed as expected.

Dave’s Ipaq – New Innovative Antenna Solution For PDA Users @ Dave’s iPAQ

ARC Wireless Solutions, Inc. and privately-held National Cellular (NCI) will jointly introduce the first RF Coupler / Antenna solution for wireless PDAs and wireless PC cards. The target markets for this new product include users of products such as the RIM BlackBerry, Danger SideKick and Hiptop, HP iPAQ as well as Nokia, Samsung, LG and other web-enabled smart-phones or cell-phones, particularly those that do not have external antenna ports. The product also supports Cellular and Wi-Fi(R) wireless PC Cards.

The product, called the Freedom AntennaPlus(TM), will be launched at the 2005 Consumer Electronics Show, which begins January 6, 2005. Using the RF Coupler, the antenna can be used with any wireless device or PC Card to provide improved wireless performance in both fixed wireless (home, office, hotel) as well as mobile wireless (vehicular) applications.

The Freedom AntennaPlus(TM), which is manufactured at ARC’s production facility in Wheat Ridge, Colorado, is a pairing of ARC Wireless’ patented Freedom Antenna(R) and NCI’s RF Coupler. The Freedom Antenna Plus(TM) enhances the signal and allows it to pass through or “couple” with the wireless device’s internal antenna. The 800 MHz to 3 GHz Freedom Antenna Plus (TM) supports Analog, 2G, and 3G cellular protocols as well as Wi-Fi(R), wireless LAN, Bluetooth(R), 802.11b, 802.11g, and other “hot spot” high-speed data connections. It works with any cellular phone, PDA or other device using any cellular service provider.

“The Freedom Antenna Plus(TM) lets the wireless PDA user tap into the benefits that can be seen from our current product, the Freedom Antenna(R),” said Jeff Doria, ARC Wireless Communications Solutions Division’s national sales manager. “One benefit, other than improved signal strength, is faster data-throughput as a result of the stronger signal being coupled to the wireless device,” Mr. Doria added.

“National Cellular is excited to have worked with ARC Wireless Solutions on the development of this revolutionary new cellular antenna,” said Nelson Roberts, Executive Director of National Cellular. “We look forward to our joint effort with ARC Wireless to introduce and market this innovative new product.”

Dave’s Ipaq – Fathers Day Download @ Dave’s iPAQ

HOLLYWOOD –(Business Wire)– ETV Inc., the parent company of http://www.99cent.movies.com, is partnering with the Orange, California based national children’s rights non-profit organization to launch the nation’s first free online film promotion for Father’s Day beginning June 16, 2004 and running through June 30, 2004.

Dads, moms, sons and daughters can go to either the http://www.unitedfathers.org website or the http://www.99cent-movies.com website to download-to-own for free the classic film, LIFE WITH FATHER starring William Powell and a young Elizabeth Taylor.

“We’re pleased to be offering a free full-length classic film to the estimated 66.3 million fathers in the United States (according to US Census Bureau figures,)” says ETV Inc. CEO Tony Barnard. He explains that downloading the film from http://www.99cent-movies.com is totally legal and a great project for parents and kids to do to honor their fathers this month.

ETV Inc. joined with United Fathers of America to help promote the free gift to honor fathers across the nation. That organization’s president, Marvin Chaplan says “We wish every dad in America a Happy Father’s Day and hope they’ll enjoy this free gift as a token of our recognition.”

Users going to the website http://www.99cent-movies.com can easily download the movie LIFE WITH FATHER to their computers or burn it to DVD using a home DVD recorder system. Barnard explains that the quality of the download is very high resolution 720 x 480 which compares with DVD quality versus the relatively lower quality of films usually seen on TV which is 480 x 525. The film is 1.2 gigabytes so a broadband connection is recommended. Once downloaded, the movie will play full-screen on a laptop or desktop computer monitor and can also be ported to a TV monitor for family viewing in the living room.

The film is a free gift to all users and no additional purchase is necessary. So it’s great for a last-minute gift for dad or for a belated father’s day celebration since the promotion runs at http://www.99cent-movies.com and on http://www.unitedfathers.org through June 30, 2004. Hundreds of other classic films are also available for purchase for less than a dollar at http://www.99cent-movies.com including westerns featuring such greats as John Wayne and a broad selection of other genres including horror, family and comedy films.

http://www.99cent-movies.com allows viewers to purchase and download-to-own Hollywood classic movies from the company’s library of 10,000 titles, and legally store these films on their computer or burn them to DVD. The price is only 99 cents per movie.

About ETV Inc.

ETV Inc., headquartered in Hollywood, California, offers a complete end-to-end solution for broadband streaming over the Internet, combined with exclusive, proven digital streaming technology and revenue producing content that includes Hollywood classic movies, television programs, and cartoons.

Interesting how they changed their first statement last month stating a November release…. I would always be careful when reading release dates because they usually are wrong.

The only thing that scares me with this unit is with all these bells and whistles… will it break down quicker? Last thing I need here is an oversized cell phone… and lots of bells and whistles bring lots of BUGS.

I will be the first in line to buy one.

Since Cingular doesn’t offer any insurance options on PDA devices we can always buy the HP extd warranty programs. They don’t cover loss, but at least they cover defects. Maybe Cingular will offer something soon?

I did not have a problem installing the software and I installed it twice. Did you download the Windows Pocket PC 2003 BETA version of agile?

Most likely the install has to be run from a desktop PC, not the iPaq itself.

I downloaded Agile and it worked great the first time, but after that, it would go into a “perpetual connecting” mode every time I tried to sign on. I installed it several times, and then decided to completely uninstall it (which was not easy, since the AMWatcher.dll remained in memory and thus would block a complete unistall — I’m not really sure how i finally got it out of there). Anyway, has anyone else had problems with this? I upgraded the ROM (to the 3500) so I don’t know if that is conflicting — any ideas? Or altentative programs that will work with Yahoo?

Yeah I had this problem as well, I’ve tried both the PocketPC and SmartPhone versions. The last one I tried ( think it was the smartphone one) actually HARD reset the machine (maybe it was me trying to soft-reset and hard reset by accident.. maybe.. ) but I had the perpetual conencting mode as well. Only one I’d use it for would be my wife, and she can darn well e-mail me for that 😛

MSN works like a charm.. wish there was a way to have Pocket Breeze NOT kill the process on exit.. hmm.. maybe i’ll dig some more.

I tried uninstalling Agile Messenger, but there is a file locked in memory. I can’t remove it manually because it starts on startup, so a soft boot won’t fix it, and I cannot get it off from the PC side either. Any suggestions?

Ectro — I had that same problem and, unfortunately I failed to use engineering protocols — I didn’t keep track of what i did. I eventually got rid of it, I believe using the PC and deleting anything to do with Agile, and then REinstalling Agile (which put it back into a mode where the “watch” program wasn’t in memory), and then, without launching it again (to keep that little watch program out of memory), deleting Agile completely again.

I guess I will have to watch here and see if anyone suggests a Yahoo program that works…..

Fixed it! After re-installing, uninstalling, reinstalling the app, I finally got frustrated and RENAMED the file (however that works). Then after a cold boot, the file could not be loaded into memory, and easily deleted. PHew.. what a hack. Although I’m gonna miss that voice message feature, hehe

Constant Redialing Hi folks, I’m still fuzzy on what the final solution to the constant redialing problem with the Agile software was. I had the same problem connecting to AIM, my account was being locked down for too many reconnects in too short a period. I was able to uninstall Agile using the directions above but… now what? If I reinstall, will I have the same problem? This only happens when I am connected by cellular (as I have to be at home). EVDO in NYC does not cause this issue. Thanks!

Getting Bluetooth to do what I need it to Hi. I have a 4355 iPaq. Has WiFi and Bluetooth. I need a real bluetooth guru…one who really knows his/her stuff. What i want to do is simple…use bluetooth earpiece/headset to do voice with Skype on my iPaq. I have the regular bluetooth software that comes as part of Mobile Windows (Pocket PC) 2003 that came with the iPaq and the ROM upgrade a couple of months ago. I can’t seem to find a menu that will let me make an audio connection with the bluetooth. I am assuming I can, as without it, there would be limited bluetooth functionality, but can’t find it. I want to buy a bluetooth headset, be able to hook my iPaq into Skype via WiFi and then use my iPaq as a phone. But my iPaq has terrible sound when using the microphone and skype plus an earbud. (strange, because it has much better sound when just using it as a voice recorder … same microphone). I am ASSUMING that the bluetooth headset would work better. So, am I the onlyone to use the 4155 and 4355 with Skype?? Any suggestions? thanks. mark

By the way, the Skype telephone transmission works fine with a desktop computer and its speakers and cheap microphone. But I want to use the iPaq. HELP!

I had an Ericsson HB35 headset and was ready to give it a try on with Skype, but then I couldn’t load Skype (for whatever reason). I’ve now since performed a Hard Reset (Ouch!), and can now install Skype. However, I have also just recently lost the headset, so I am waiting to save up enough $$$ to buy a replacement.

Maybe in the meantime, someone else here can offer their suggestions?

So Mark – as you know I use the Motorola HS810 headset for Skype on both my 4700 and my PC. I almost gave up on my PC as there were no audi headset services thru bluetooth but then I found an update to the bluetooth software which had the audio headset bluetooth profile. This is what you need on your 4150 and if it doesn’t show audio headset under bluetooth services and there isn’t a ROM update to provide this bluetooth service then you may be out of luck. It seems that just having bluetooth doesn’t mean you have all bluetooth functions. Though I think it would be really good to hear from a real bluetooth expert on this subject…. Regards,

Talkk to you soon via skype once I have peace and quiet…..

I haven’t made the move to PPC 2003, so is there any way to access the HS810 under PPC2002?

PPC 2002 will work with a Bluetooth headset. But, Skype does not work with PPC 2002.

but I’m not sure that the HS810 will work as you need the Audio gateway service.

Actually, I found a registry modification that allowed me to enable to headset service. I am using the HS810 with JSphone, and when I push the button, although I hear static on the 810, the Ipaq still dials out on the built in speaker… When I check with BTManager, it is listed that the 810 is connected on the out going. I have both the Headset service and the Serial service to come up with no authentication and auto connect.

Still lost!

I don’t think that there is an issue with JSphone per se. Because I should be able to hear something even if it is simple a beep from the 4550 over the headset.

Then you need to confirm which of the two devices is problematic. The presumption is that only one is the true cause. If you accept that as an axiom, then you need only attempt to pair the headset with another BT device (yours or a friends). Or, on the inverse side, if you were able to successfully pair another headset, then this would likely point the finger at your existing headset. This might be the easier choice, since you could probably find display/demo headsets at your local electronics store.

Where did you find the update? I have the HS810 bluetooth headset, the pairing works fine but there is no audio in/out?

and what model – do you have an HP laptop with ‘bluetooth by HP’. This is the update i needed for my EVO NC4010. This update will only work for the models specified. These models are specified towards the end of page. If you have something different , then you will need to look for a different update.

I have the same issue trying to make Plantronics M3000 work with skype on PPC. It seems that it is a well known issue with Skype on PPC which doesn’t support BT headsets. The only people I heard that were able to have it work is Laura and someone else in here, and it seems the headset is Motorola HS810/820/850. and only on 4700 ! Haven’t heard anyone being able to hook up a BT headset to skype on any other model … I did some research and it seems that Motorola HS 8xx series supports both BT stacks 1.1 and 1.2. Does anyone know what BT version is supported on Pocket PC 2003 SE ? that might answer some questions … Anyway, the skype forum is full with unhappy people … trying to achieve this … Laura, it would be greatloy appreciated if we could find someone using your BT headset on a 2750 and confirm it works fine with Skype.

cheers

well Jack has the 2750, with a HS820 and Skype – I’m assuming that he got this combo to work, but you might want to send him a private message and ask?

A long time ago (a year ago it seems), I had an Ericsson HB-30 (35?) BT Headset working with Skype, but I was only able to use it once because the hotspots I was trying Skype from were “iffy”. After that, someone stole the headset and I have yet to replace it.

Dave’s Ipaq – HTC Selects Dilithium 3G-324M Stack and AnswerFast Plus for Windows Mobile Smartphone @ Dave’s iPAQ

Dilithium Networks a leading provider of wireless multimedia solutions announced today that its 3G-324M video telephony and conferencing protocol software has been selected by HTC for its new Windows Mobile(TM) Pocket PC Phone platform. HTC is recognized as a leader in the design and manufacture of handheld devices for a diverse range of customers, including major mobile device brands, service providers, telecommunication operators and vertical market clients.

Dilithium Networks continues to expand its leading market position of its 3G-324M/H.324M protocol stack in smartphone ODM and OEMs worldwide. According to the high tech market research firm, In-Stat/MDR, smartphone shipments will experience a 44% Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) over the next five years.

The agreement includes licensing of Dilithium Networks 3G-324M video telephony application protocol stack software with Dilithium’s new AnswerFast(TM) Plus technology. AnswerFast Plus dramatically reduces video call session setup times to less than 1 second. Present 3G terminals typically take 5-8 seconds to completely establish the audio and video channels. Additional AnswerFast Plus benefits include high resiliency in noisy or poor coverage areas, and an unmatched interoperability record with deployed terminals.

“We are pleased to work with HTC, the leader in Windows Mobile platform technology,” said Lee Ellison Sr. Vice President of Global Sales and Support at Dilithium Networks. “Incorporating Dilithium Networks AnswerFast(TM) Plus into HTC’s 3G Windows Mobile(TM) smartphone will result in call setup times that are comparable to those of voice calls. This reduces wasted network overhead while at the same time significantly improving customer experience.”
