Motorola MPx gains FCC approval

We’re one step closer to seeing vapor become reality in the case of the Motorola MPx. The phone recently gained FCC approval for sale here in the U.S., which fits with its expected carrier release some time early next year.



PocketPC version of Transport Tycoon

Normally we save software news for the weekend, but I ran across this and decided it was cool enough to deserve a special mention. Some enterprising Germans have created a PocketPC version of the classic PC game Transport Tycoon, complete with support for VGA PocketPCs. The port, called OpenTTD, requires a copy of the PC version of Transport Tycoon Deluxe to run, but hey, everyone has one of those, right? (Crickets chirp.) Anyone? Well, at least I’ll have fun, and it always is worth encouraging the porting of games to the PocketPC. Next goal: Pocket Sid Meier’s Alpha Centauri.



New accessories from Brando, Javoedge, Innopocket

A whole slew of new accessories today. First off, from Brando, we have a line of aluminum hardcases for a variety of iPaq, Axim, O2, and Samsung models.


As well as for the PalmOne Tungsten T5.


A new three-in-one stylus pen for the T5.


And likewise for the iPaq 6300.


Not to be outdone, Innopocket pulled out their own metal case, this time for the XDA IIs.


And last but not least, Javoedge has their own branding of a Bluetooth keyboard.
