HTC has introduced the newest addition to its array of devices, they call it the Shift. It is a pint-sized computer which gives users the benefit of browsing and sending e-mails without the weight of their standard laptops. This new device is half the size of a normal notebook and a half of its weight.
Despite its small package, this pocket pc is powered by Microsoft Windows Vista and packs in a 40GB hard drive, as well as multiple connectivity options like HSDPA (high speed downlink packet access), Bluetooth 2.0 and Wi-Fi connectivity. It also utilizes Microsoft’s Origami software enhancement to allow improved access to information and calendaring tools. The HTC Shift will be available in the market starting April at a price of $2,188.
Using the on-screen keyboard is almost as impossible, that most either require a QWERTY pad in their pocket PC-enabled phones or PDAs. However, there’s a program that will help you use the on-screen keyboard and stylus, and not have a hard time using them: the Shapewriter:
ShapeWriter’s award winning technology elevates touch screen devices to new levels of usability. Instead of “hunting and pecking” letters, single gestures on a touch keyboard produce an entire word. For example: a stroke that roughly connects the w, o, r and d keys is recognized by ShapeWriter’s intelligent algorithms as the word “word”. Experienced users can write much faster on ShapeWriter than on a conventional keyboard. All ShapeWriter products run in real time on mobile devices and feature advanced editing, automatic formatting and capitalization, error tolerance, misspelling correction, and gesture commands.
With the company stalled and it’s current owner deciding to discontinue it’s foray into the mobile and tablet market Palm, one of the first pocket pc’s around is dead in it’s tracks. There are but few details regarding the decision of the world’s largest computer maker on the move, that has also by coincidence moved to place it’s PC manufacturing arm up for sale.
The PC giant has re-aimed it’s focus on the services only market like IBM and many others who have been faring well in spite of economic turmoil. PC, mobile and tablet sales are mostly dependent on the economy, a bump here and there equals to huge losses. The move was a surprise indeed with shares of the company dipping well below expectations, only time will tell if their decision is based on sound analysis of the market’s status.
In the never ending move to expand it’s empire, and hopefully step on less toes in the computing industry, search engine giant Google expands yet again by acquiring Motorola Mobility. This may be a sign of their race to get some share of the mobile market ruled by Apple Inc. and others who are using their Android platform but it may simply be a move to end their never ending nagging with them regarding patents and others.
The acquisition gets Google Inc. and additional 17,000 patents with 7,000 under process/application that were previously owned by Motorola. They may simply have had enough of the patent fights, bickering and decided to take the fight to them in the market they oh so love and rule.

The struggling Blackberry, the forecast mobile for the serious businessman has long been in a losing fight against the battle with Apple and their iPhones/tablets and other manufacturers who run on Google’s Android platform. They have managed to come out with seemingly improved models that are aimed to make them a tad bit more pleasing for users but it seems their move has fallen on deaf ears.
Similar to events that have struck Palm, one of the first mobile computing pioneers around that has closed shop as HP, it’s current owners try to find direction in the evolving markets. Blackberry is still managing to hold on to some businesses and their employees but for how long, hopefully enough for a few more years.
