Ok so it’s a bit funny because it comes from Pocketpcitalia so of course it comes with an Italian accent. The video starts with a Metallica song and then this Italian dude showing off the device, it makes it quirky. Oh, several times you can see the reflection of the presenter camera on the glare of the device screen. LOL! Enuf talk… here’s the video of the HTC Touch Pro 2 including TouchFlo3D 2.
Ok so a lot of us love to rock out on our plastic instruments; jamming to Rock Band or Guitar Hero. The problems is… having a bunch of plastic guitars, drums, etc makes your living room look a bit, well, nerdy. Enter the AK Rock Box Gaming and Storage Ottoman with Drum Lift. It runs $199.99 with free shipping (normally $299) but might be worth it if you gaming system has it’s home in the living room. Instead of stashing controllers behind the couch, or just leaving them sitting all over the place you can neatly stash them inside the storage ottoman.

Ok so everybody know that HTC’s TouchFlo3D is just about the slickest interface out there for Windows Mobile. One thing that’s bugged the crap out of me since I bought my Touch Pro is that by default you only see ONE appointment listed. Lot of good that does me! Well the wizards at xda-developers have done it again and released a wicked cool modification to do your choice of:
- Dated appointments – like a dated weekly view
- Normal – which shows appointments for today and tomorrow
It comes in two flavors, one which works with any stock Rhodium TouchFlo device, or a T-Mobile theme for those with T-Mobile branded Rhodium TouchFlo installed. Why this functionality isn’t the default in TouchFlo I’ll never understand. I mean seriously, why do I need a giant clock!??!!? Show me some information on the home tab… well that’s to XDA now you can.

Ok everybody knows that Pocket Internet Explorer (aka PIE) sucks. CNet reports that Opera Mobile 9.7 will support Flash and Ajax. Opera says Turbo can squeeze down data by 80 percent, clearing through slow and stubborn network connections quicker. Opera Mobile 9.7 boasts that it passes the Acid 3 test of Web standards with 100 percent, and that it supports Google Gears and the Open GL ES standard for graphics acceleration. Oh ya, and it’ll support widgets. NICE!
It’ll originally be targeted at OEM’s (in other words… the handset makers/carriers) but they hinted that end users will get a go at it as well.
Xboxmod has finished porting the new TouchFlo 3D interface from the newly released Touch Diamond 2. It looks awesome and he was even able to make a cab installer for it. Known as the XBmod Manila Rhodium VGA Beta 1B it includes a landscape version of TouchFlo 3D 2 and automatic screen rotation.
TouchFlo 3D 2 brings the new HTC goodness like HTC ContactCard, Menu Enhancements, new volume controls and much more. This is available as a CAB file for installation. If you’re a CDMA Touch Pro user I HIGHLY suggest grabbing MightyROM and then getting the TF3D2 enhancements.
