Windows Mobile Fix for DST

Because of the Energy Policy Act, daylight saving time is extended by four weeks in 2007. The 2007 daylight saving time implementation is as follows:

  • Daylight saving time starts at 02:00 A.M. on March 11, 2007.
  • Daylight saving time ends at 02:00 A.M. on November 4, 2007.
  • Clocks change at 02:00 A.M. local time. On March 11, 2007, clocks will move forward one hour from 01:59 A.M. to 03:00 A.M. On November 4, 2007, clocks will move back one hour from 01:59 A.M. to 01:00 A.M.

    These changes are okay unless you happen to be running some technology reliant product. For example, if you had a Windows Mobile based device, the Microsoft support article (923953) that provides you with the regisitry changes that you need to make aren’t the easiest to ask your clients to run or install.

    Thanks to Bill, one of the EdgeBack consultants, the registry changes needed for the Daylight Savings Time fix for Windows mobile devices is now available as a CAB file that can be installed fairly easily. I need to install this on my smartphone later this week and will update the post with appropriate results of the installation.

    SMT 5600

    YAY! I am now the proud owner of a Audiovox UTStarcom SMT 5600. (On November 30, 2005, UTStarcom  aquired the cellular subsidiary of Audiovox Corporation) The phone in all its gadget pride is displayed below:

    SMT 5600

    I’ve owned a Dell Axim X30 for slightly over a year and bought it initially to access the Internet when I was away from my office. Temple University has been ranked for two consecutive years as one of the most wired campuses in the nation and so there’s always an access point that is within reach. The connection worked flawlessly for basic surfing and synchronizing mail was a breeze. However, over time I realized that I rarely used the mobile versions of Word, PowerPoint and Excel. Furthermore, I kept hitting various obstacles, the biggest of which was that I could not make phone calls with the Axim and trying to use programs like Skype did not work because of various proxy issues. Most of all carrying both a phone and a PDA were becoming a bit too cumbersome.

    So late last year I started looking at devices again and found more convincing evidence that I should be using a smartphone – a single device that integrated both phone capabilities with basic PDA functionality. After debating between Cingular’s 2125 and the SMT 5600 I finally settled for the SMT 5600 primarily because of the prize differential. It’ll be an interesting experiment in terms of device changes as I’m not the best with the whole T9 lifestyle. Nevertheless, I figure I should give it a shot and maybe over time I’ll save up enough for the Samsung’s SCG-i730 EV-DO Pocket PC. As for now, the fun of synchronizing my SIM card contacts with my Outlook contacts has begun.

    Anyone looking for a Dell Axim X30?

    Pocket PC Applications

    The unofficial list of applications for the Pocket PC and Smartphone are now available at the blog for the .NET Compact Framework Team.

    I’ve copied the list of Pocket PC application from their blog as a reminder to gradually start testing these on my Dell Axim X30.
