Motorola T900

>> Monday, March 30, 2009

Originally, a pager could only display numbers, but numeric pagers eventually gave way to alphanumeric pagers that delivered short text messages. Now, two-way pagers such as the Motorola Talkabout T900 can receive messages as well as write and send replies.

The T900 is part of the new breed of two-way pagers that can not only communicate with other two-way pagers, but also send and receive Internet e-mail. E-mail capability is important because not everyone has a two-way pager, but nearly everyone has an e-mail account. Note, however, that the T900 can only receive e-mail sent to a special e-mail address.

The T900 itself features an address book that can hold up to 250 entries, such as home and work phone numbers, a mobile phone number, a wireless pager number, and an e-mail address. There is no field for street addresses, but then again the pager is meant to be a communicator, not a personal organizer.

The unit is fairly small, measuring 0.9 inches high x 3.19 inches wide x 2.15 inches deep and weighing just 3.86 ounces. The four-line display limits you to just 80 characters on the screen at once, but text is large and easy to read.

The small 36-key QWERTY keyboard is good for its size. Although it looks funny and isn't exactly comfortable to type on, we were able to type out messages using our thumbs with only a few typos. A number of preprogrammed responses are available to quickly reply to messages, although you are free to write your own custom reply. The keyboard and the display are backlit, so you should have no problem sending messages in the dark.

One AA battery powers the unit for about three weeks, and the unit is able to retain messages while you switch batteries.

Unlike more advanced units such as the Timeport P935, the T900 doesn't contain any personal information management tools and can not synchronize with a desktop computer.

The T900 costs $179.99 and service runs from $9.95 to $29.95. Be sure to check the WebLink Wireless site (http://www.pagemart.com) for coverage information in your area.

New Software of "Microsoft Office 14"

>> Friday, March 27, 2009

Russian site Wzor has leaked some screenshots of the Office 14 alpha build that was handed out to select testers this week.

The build is pictured below installed onto Windows 7 and it doesn't appear like the UI has been overhauled yet and remains very similar to Office 2007.

We revealed a possible Office 14 concept screenshot earlier this week before alpha testers received the official build. According to Alpha testers Microsoft is targeting a 2009 release and Office 14 could still be named Office System 2009.

NEW YORK (Reuters) -- Motorola Inc. forecast a deeper-than-expected first-quarter loss, suspended its quarterly dividend and said it was looking for a new chief financial officer, sending its shares down 10%.

The embattled cell phone maker slid to fifth place from fourth in global rankings in the last quarter, and said Tuesday it expects its handset division to post a loss in 2009.

Motorola (MOT, Fortune 500) said it will focus on mid-tier to high-end phones, after losing ground for two years because it lacked a popular phone to compete with Nokia (NOK), Samsung Electronics, LG Electronics and Sony (ADR) Ericsson.

"We have our work cut out for us in 2009 as we focus on the future success of Mobile Devices," said Co-Chief Executive Sanjay Jha, who is also head of the mobile phone division, on a conference call. He said Motorola's sales volumes were falling faster than the industry's in the current quarter.

Jha said Motorola was still committed to using Microsoft Corp. (MSFT, Fortune 500)'s Windows Mobile software but that most of its focus in 2009 was on Google Inc. (GOOG, Fortune 500)'s competing Android software, with an emphasis on social networking features.

Motorola, which also makes television set-top boxes and wireless gear, forecast a first-quarter loss per share of 10 cents to 12 cents, wider than the average Wall Street estimate for a loss of 5 cents, according to Reuters Estimates.

Avian Securities analyst Matthew Thornton said he was expecting Motorola's handset unit to suffer, but he was worried the poor outlook could mean the rest of the business was also weakening due to the economic recession.

"The question is what's the driver for these lower expectations," he said. Thornton added that it made sense for Motorola to conserve cash by suspending its 5-cent-per-share quarterly dividend.

Motorola named its corporate controller Edward Fitzpatrick as acting CFO to replace Paul Liska. It said Liska's departure was appropriate given changes in the business environment, but he did not elaborate.
Low visibility

Motorola, which faces competition from Apple Inc. (AAPL, Fortune 500)'s iPhone, said it expected operating results to improve after the first quarter, but that visibility remained limited due to the uncertain economy.

It had $7.4 billion in cash at year-end, and said the suspension of its dividend from the second quarter onward would save the company $350 million in 2009.

However, Motorola expected costs of $300 million for previously announced layoffs in the first and second quarter.

Morgan Keegan analyst Tavis McCourt said the sharp fall in Motorola shares was likely due to the canceled dividend and weaker trends in Motorola's home and networks business, and enterprise business.

"In this economy especially, cash is king. If they can execute their turnaround, they can reinstate the dividend in 2010 or 2011," McCourt said.

Motorola reported a net loss of $3.6 billion, or $1.57 per share, compared with a profit of $100 million, or 4 cents a share, a year earlier.

Excluding charges for items such as goodwill amortization, Motorola's loss would have been 1 cent per share, compared with Wall Street's forecast for a loss of 2 cents a share, according to Reuters Estimates.

Revenue fell 26% from a year earlier to $7.14 billion, compared with analyst expectations for $7.07 billion.

Mobile device revenue fell 51% to $2.35 billion and its operating loss widened to $595 million from $388 million a year ago.

Motorola said it remained committed to its plan to separate its mobile devices division from the rest of its business, but that it did not expect this to happen in 2009.

Motorola shares were down 47 cents at $4.07 in early trading on the New York Stock Exchange.

Life after iPhone

(Fortune Magazine) -- What will AT&T do after the iPhone?

The nation's No. 1 wireless operator has benefited handsomely from its deal to be the exclusive U.S. carrier of Apple's runaway hit. Since AT&T joined forces with Apple, the phone company has welcomed about five million iPhones onto its network and gained much-needed cred in the wireless Internet space. Its iPhone subscribers are less likely to jump to a competitor, and they spend twice as much on their monthly bills as the average wireless user.

As a result, AT&T (T, Fortune 500), with 75 million wireless users, has widened its lead over No. 2 Verizon (VZ, Fortune 500), which has 71 million users. The iPhone's only shortcoming may be its incompatibility with some corporate IT systems. (See "Can the iPhone go corporate")

But the iPhone isn't forever. Neither Apple (AAPL, Fortune 500) nor AT&T will say when their monogamous relationship will end, but industry analysts estimate that AT&T has only a few more years as Apple's American one-and-only.

With the clock ticking, AT&T is scrambling to find ways to maintain and bolster its ability to sell high-volume, high-margin wireless services to consumers and businesses.

Now CEO Randall Stephenson and other executives of AT&T are pushing the notion of its wireless phones as indispensable lifestyle devices that customers will use to surf the web, remotely program their DVRs or home-alarm systems, and securely connect to their corporate networks.

To make that vision a reality, AT&T is making some Silicon Valley-flavored moves. Its purchase of Wi-Fi provider Wayport should help business customers get work done faster on the road. And a project brewing in the company's labs would let consumers send video from a touchscreen phone to an AT&T digital video recorder with the flick of a finger.

It is unclear if any phone company can make the leap from wireless operator to applications developer, but the iPhone certainly has made AT&T's job a bit easier by introducing millions of consumers to the possibilities of wireless data - and that's a benefit AT&T will enjoy long after the end of its exclusive deal with Apple.



Google tries out offline Gmail feature

Google believes almost religiously in cloud computing, the idea that computer applications and data live on the Internet rather than on PCs. But there are times when the network is inaccessible, and generally Web-based applications like today's Gmail effectively seize up under those circumstances.

Offline sidesteps that problem, the classic example being a busy executive traveling on a plane. And offline Gmail access begins a new chapter for Google's ambition to appeal to business customers for services such as Google Apps, of which Gmail is a component.

"This is a feature we've heard loud and clear the enterprise wants," said Todd Jackson, Gmail's product manager.

Trying to sign up business customers generally means wooing them away from the dominant e-mail products, Microsoft's Exchange server software and Outlook PC software. Google and Microsoft began in separate spheres, but are ever-closer competitive rivals, each with a strong cash-generating business that can be used to subsidize forays into other markets.

There's more, too. Google Apps customers will get another major offline option "soon," too: Google Calendar access, though not initially the ability to create new entries. If the organization's administrator enables the "New Features" option, each person within that organization will get access to the calendar, Google said.

New features help make Gmail more compelling for business customers, but for many, a bigger problem is the fact that Gmail still sports its beta tag, said Gartner analyst David Smith.

"That's one of the biggest stumbling blocks for businesses," Smith said. "You're hard-pressed to find any businesses who decide to go into production with anything that a vendor calls beta, no matter how good it is." Google promises customers will get 99.9 percent availability through a service level agreement for Google Apps, which includes Gmail, Google Calendar, and Google Docs.

Cloud vs. PC

And Microsoft, while not turning on a dime, isn't counting on a future that consists exclusively of PC-based Office. It already has a product, Office Live Workspace that lets users share and view--but not edit--Office documents online, and the next version of Office will run in a browser.

Philosophically, though, Microsoft remains firmly tethered to the PC, while Google wants to move as fast as possible to Web-based applications.

"We think the browser is the ideal platform for deploying all kinds of applications. That's where Google is placing its bet," Jackson said. "But people are traditionally limited by the speed and connectivity of the Internet. We want to fill in those gaps."

Google already developed open-source technology called Gears that helps further this cloud computing agenda by storing Web data on PC, and Gmail, used by millions, could help coax more people to install Gears. That, in turn, could help solve the chicken-and-egg problem that currently means it's not worthwhile for most Web application programmers to build in Gears support.

Greater Gears support could help other cloud-computing companies, including Zoho, which already has offline access for its Web-based e-mail application.

It's not as if offline Gmail were completely impossible. People can set up software such as Outlook or Thunderbird to read and write e-mails, for example. But offline Gmail means people won't have to learn a new interface.

Offline Gmail has been in testing for months, though Jackson wouldn't share specifics about exactly how long.

What can offline Gmail do?

"We wanted the user experience to be almost identical to the experience you get when you're online," Jackson said.

Offline Gmail stores a copy of a user's inbox on a personal computer. Most people will have to install it, a process Google walks you through, but it's built into Google's Chrome browser.

Once Gears is installed and offline access is enabled, the software automatically detects when a person's network connection is working. If the network is good, Gmail works as usual. If it's bad, it goes into offline mode, sending unsent messages and retrieving new ones when the connection is restored.

And if the network is dodgy, a person can use the intermediate "flaky connection mode," which for example queues a message to be sent immediately by storing it to the hard drive then actually sends it as soon as it can. Google positions this as useful for coffee shops and poaching a neighbor's weak-signal wireless network, but I think of this as "tech conference mode."

When enabled, offline Gmail begins by downloading, in the background, a copy of a user's archive to the user's personal computer. But the software stores about 10,000 e-mails, so heavy users won't get a complete archive.

Gmail automatically updates the local cache of messages with new and recently read items and with messages associated with a particular label on which a person has clicked, Jackson said.


Not everything works, though.

One big missing piece is the ability to add attachments to new messages, though attachments are visible with existing messages.

Another is the contacts tab, so forget about managing e-mail lists or adding new addresses while offline. The autocomplete option works, though, so there's no need to start remembering e-mail addresses.

English-speaking Gmail users will be able to enable offline access as Google gradually adds the ability over the next "couple" of days, said Gmail engineer Andy Palay in a blog post. "Offline Gmail is still an early experimental feature, so don't be surprised if you run into some kinks that haven't been completely ironed out yet," Palay said.

What kinds of problems occur?

"We've seen issues with the local cache getting out of sync. You have to refresh the browser, and that gets you going again," Jackson said. "In some rare circumstance, it has to be fully flushed, so we ask to disable and re-enable the feature."
But these should be unusual problems, he said: "It's been in testing for awhile on all 20,000 Googlers, so it's gotten some good testing."
