All PDAmill’s Palm OS Games Are Now Free 

In the past, PDAmill made both Palm OS and Pocket PC games. However, about a year ago it stopped development of the Palm OS versions, and the company has now released all of them for free.

However, please be advised that these games come with no warranty, no support, and might not work with many current devices.

This offer includes the Palm OS version of Arvale: Journey of Illusion, Snails, and several others.

To download these games, visit the PDAmill website.

Add a USB Port to an iPAQ or Axim

Handhelds like the iPAQ 210 offer a wide variety of connection options, but a USB port isn’t on this list. The SolarExpress PDA CF USB Card takes care of this, adding a USB Host port to Pocket PCs with a CompactFlash slot.

Software drivers are available for thumbdrives, keyboards, and even printers.

It is compatible with the HP iPAQ 210, Dell Axim X50 and X51 Series, iPAQ hx4700, hx2000 Series, Windows Mobile 6 Pro, Windows Mobile 2005 Pocket PC, Windows Mobile 2003 and SE.

The port can provide up to 5v at 200 mA, but an optional Y-USB Host power cable is available to provide 5V at 500 mA. 

The SolarExpress PDA CF USB Card sells for $84.95. More information is available on the Light Cone Corp website.

Rogers May Become First N. American Carrier to Offer Nokia N95

However, this may soon change; one of Canada’s GSM carriers, Rogers Wireless, is rumored to be planing to start offering Nokia’s top-of-the-line device, the N95, as early as May 2.

According to the report at, the N95 will come to Rogers Wireless priced at $700 without a contract. There was no price given for an in-contract price.
