How Can Windows Mobile and Microsoft Zune Work Together Better? 

A new post on the Windows Mobile Team Blog asks the question, "What are some ways the Zune player and a Windows Mobile device can work better together?"

The post from Mel Sampat is not referring to a "Zune Phone," the rumored combination of Microsoft’s multimedia player with a phone, but instead is asking how the Zune can work better with Windows Mobile smartphones and handhelds.

"I’m wondering if there are any opportunities for us to improve the experience for people who use both devices (a Zune and a Windows Mobile phone)," Sampat wrote. "For example, viewing your Zune Social network in IEMobile, converting a Zune playlist into .WMA ringtones, converting Zune’s artwork to Windows Mobile themes, showing your Windows Mobile contacts as pictures in Zune etc."

Suggestions can posted on the Windows Mobile Team Blog.

PhatNotes Updated with Context Analyzer

PhatWare Corporation has released a new version of its PhatNotes notes organizer for Windows Mobile devices.

A key new feature is a Context Analyzer, which allows users to access web sites, send emails, make phone calls, or even open files or execute applications just by tapping on words that are recognized as  URLs, email addresses, phone numbers, or a custom command. Until now, this feature has been limited to PhatNotes’ desktop software, but the new version brings this functionality to the mobile devices.

Other new features in PhatNotes 5.2 include support for Windows Vista Service Pack 1 and Windows Mobile 6.1, a new desktop UI theme, support for regular expression when searching or filtering notes by text on the Smartphone, and improved usability and performance.
