Handmark Pocket Express V3 Review

Windows Mobile“It’s great that the application installs easily, but Pocket Express is a content service, largely a paid one at that. Thankfully, the content is largely fantastic, only bested by a simple interface that works amazingly well with one hand, something that’s becoming more critical by the day.Launching Pocket Express takes you to PageOne, the main launching area for the program. From PageOne you can see a list of nine core channels, in addition to extras and the button bar which includes: update, share, settings, and exit options. All of these are easily navigable with the D-pad and, on a device like the 700w, the two action buttons. ” Read this review at

Mio A701 review from

“The camera software is well implemented. One of the softmenu keys allows you to choose the image resolution (120×120, 240×320, 480×640, 768×1024 or 1,024×1,280 pixels), set up to 8x zoom, switch between burst, timer and normal modes, and change the brightness of the captured image. The White Balance settings are automatic. Other changes, such as image quality and a setting to run a slide show when the A701 is connected to a PC, require a little more effort to configure.The A701’s left edge houses a volume rocker, while the bottom edge is home to the mini-USB mains power and docking connector. On the back is the lens for the built-in camera, a self-portrait mirror and a speaker. To access the mobile phone’s SIM slot, you need to open the case and remove the battery. The 69mm (2.7-inch) 240×320-pixel screen is sharp and bright, and Mio’s own-brand Today screen, which uses white text on a black background, lends things a distinctive look. This screen has large icons, four of which you can set as application shortcuts by choosing from a list; the fifth icon takes you to the Mio Menu, a graphical application chooser. If you use the Today screen to view upcoming appointments or tasks, you’ll almost certainly need to use the vertical scrollbar that appears when information extends off the screen. ” Read this review here:
