How to install CAB files on Your Pocket PC

I am writing this simple guide with the idea to help you installing and using all those great applications you will ever want. How to install CAB files on Pocket PC?

First of all you need to find and download the program you want to install. I will use an application called PDAStatus, which shows the status of your device on today screen. When the download process is complete you need to copy the CAB file and paste it somewhere on your device, I personally recommend to do this at the Storage Card. Note that some applications are zipped so you need to unarchive them to have the CAB file. Now you need to open pocket pc's File Explorer, located into the Programs. Browse the storage card or the location you used to copy the CAB. When you select and run it, a windows will appear, which asks you to Choose a location to install the program. It can be your Device or the Storage Card, so select your choice and click below on Install. The process after that is fully automated and after the installation is complete it will show you confirmation screen.

This is all you need to do to install CAB files to your Windows Mobile Pocket PC device. Below is video on which you can see how I installed PDAStatus on my HTC TyTN.

How to Decrease a lengthy Home Page of your Blog in Wordpress

You can truncate blog entries so that only the first part of certain posts is displayed on the home and archive views. When you do this, a link will be placed directly after your excerpt, pointing the reader to the full content of the article.

You can find the More Tag button in the first row of the visual editor toolbar or by pressing Alt+Shift+T:

Using the More tag

1) Go to Posts -Add New in your dashboard to create a new blog entry (this does not work with Pages).

2) Begin writing your post. When you decide that you want to cut it off, insert the More tag to split the post (mark where the excerpt officially ends). You will see the More Tag as such in the visual editor:

3) Finish writing your post.

HTC Smart Review and How to's

Being a veteran in the smartphone market is huge advantage when you decide to come up with something new. After so many Windows Mobile and Android devices, HTC surprised us with a completely different product – HTC Smart. It’s a semi-smartphone that runs on the unusual Brew Mobile platform strengthened with the fancy Sense UI.

Throwing another mobile OS on the market is hardly the right move since the smartphone arena is already over-crowded. But it seems HTC Smart is HTC’s way of making a feature phone. The Linux-based Brew Mobile platform used for the HTC Smart hardly makes it a proper smartphone to boot. Truth is, there are modern touch feature phones that have more “smart” in them than this one.
But enough about software, let’s see what HTC Smart has to offer in terms of hardware.

Key features

  • Quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE support
  • 3G with HSDPA 3.6 Mbps
  • Brew Mobile software platform with HTC Sense UI and social networking integration
  • 2.8" resistive touchscreen of QVGA resolution
  • 300 MHz processor, 256 MB RAM, 256 MB ROM
  • 3.15 megapixel fixed-focus camera with LED flash
  • Standard miniUSB port for charging and Mass Storage data transfers
  • Stereo Bluetooth (A2DP)
  • microSD card slot, up to 16GB support
  • Standard 3.5mm audio jack
  • Smart dialing
  • Stereo FM radio with RDS
  • Excellent loudspeaker performance

Main disadvantages

  • No Wi-Fi connectivity
  • QVGA resolution doesn’t do Sense UI graphics justice
  • Screen has poor sunlight legibility
  • No video-call camera
  • No voice dialing
  • Camera lacks auto focus, records QVGA@15fps video only
  • Only few applications preinstalled and no access to app repository for native BREW apps
  • Limited organizer functions – no notes/memo, no voice recorder or an office document-viewer
  • No multi-tasking
  • Web browser poor and rather slow

Q.What OS does the phone support?
Using HTC Sync for HTC Smart this phone supports Windows XP, Windows 32-bit or 64-bit Vista, and 32-bit or 64-bit Windows 7.

Nokia's Dual Sim Mobile C1-00

Just shared from GSMArena.com

After years of watching their rivals introduce one dual SIM phone after another, a few months back Nokia finally decided to join them and unveiled its first mobile phones capable of accommodating two SIM cards at the same time. Eager to see what it held in store, we took one of them, the Nokia C1-00, for a spin around our testing grounds.

Instead of even bothering to catch up with the competition, the Finns chose to play the game by their own rules and made their first steps into the dual SIM mobile phone market by announcing a couple of entry level devices. No luster and certainly nothing groundbreaking, these devices (including the C1-00) pack only the most basic of features.
So, you get what you pay for. And what you need. Which is dual SIM telephony. The Nokia C1-00 works with two SIM cards and comes with a color display, a built-in FM radio and a handy flashlight.
Here’s the pros and cons of getting a Nokia C1-00.
