Telstra Readies Branded Windows Mobile Interface

TelstraInterface.jpgWe’re not going to lie — Windows Mobile is not our favourite mobile phone operating system, mostly because it’s about as stable as a three-legged donkey. However, a newly-customised version for Telstra mobiles does promise a few goodies. Mitchell Bingemann at AustralianIT reports that Telstra has co-developed its own branded interface for Windows Mobile 6.1. The most appealing feature is a built-in system for using a phone as a PC modem, an appealing option given promised speed improvements to the platform. Like those improvements, there’s a delay; the first handset sporting the interface will appear in April.

    “…mostly because it’s about as stable as a three-legged donkey”

    You’ve not used a new Windows Mobile 6.1 phone then. My Samsung Omnia is the most stable smartphone I’ve ever used.

    “The most appealing feature is a built-in system for using a phone as a PC modem”

    Every Windows Mobile 6.0/6.1 phone has that:

    Internet Sharing -> Connect

    Two buttons. Does it via bluetooth or USB cable. I’m using it right now.

    Just FYI for other readers, this is co-developed with the people from PointUI, and is basically a branded version of Home 2

    🙂
