HTC HD2 Extended Battery to come with a Kickstand

Posted by Tanmay | Posted in Hardware, HTC HD2 | Posted on 22-01-2010


The HTC HD2 is a very powerful device! With that beastly 1GHz processor and the huge 4.3′ screen , battery life does take a toll. HTC had some time back demoed an Extended Battery pack which came with a replacement back panel to accomodate the larger size of the battery.

It’s been confirmed now that the Replacement Backpanel will also come with a Kickstand. A kickstand would be definitely useful while watching Videos or Slideshows on the HD2.

Clove, a very reputed Online Reseller has detailed the various Accessories coming for the HD2 in coming months.

The Extended Battery comes at a hefty price, it costs about £52.88 (~90$) which does seem pretty costly. If you are a heavy user, then you would definitely want one! Hit up the Read link for more info.


OpnMarket : Freeware AppStore for Windows Mobile

Posted by Tanmay | Posted in Downloads | Posted on 21-01-2010


Microsoft launched Windows Marketplace for Windows Phones not too long back. The overall feedback for Marketplace hasn’t been too great. The one main caveat behind Marketplace is that it’s region specific. That means people from regions such as Asia or Europe miss out on Applications which might be sold in the United States.

The other main point being that for every Paid application out there, there’s always a comparable Freeware alternative available.

Now a very well known site providing Free Windows Mobile Applications has built a custom Application Store for Windows Mobile featuring only Freeware Applications!

OpnMarket for Windows Mobile provides a very clean and easy interface to get those freeware applications quickly and easily. The experience which it provides is much better than even Marketplace.

Resistive screens have been the de facto standard for Screen Types in Windows Mobiles since ages. The one advantage Resistive offers over the current Capacitive screens is that its highly accurate, the drawback being “less sensitivity” and no “MultiTouch”.

Stantum has been long working on a technology which provides Resistive screens to be MultiTouch as well as being highly Sensitive.

Engadget has done a Hands-On Video on a Tablet based on Stantum technology. Watch the Video after the break.

What’s special and interesting about this event is that there have been various rumors about Microsoft showing off glimpses of Windows Mobile 7. Windows Mobile 7 as you all must be knowing is the next iteration in Windows Mobile OS. High expectations are set and everyone is hoping for it to be groundbreaking enough to outcast Android and iPhone OS.

Although I feel that this event will be focused mainly on Windows Mobile 6.5.3/6.5.5. Whatever it might be, we will be there to cover all updates about this event.
