Enjoy the squishiest shoot-em-up ever - Platypus for Palm OS(R) and Windows Mobile(R)

KEELE, Staffordshire, & DONCASTER, S. Yorkshire UK - April 16th, 2008 - Astraware(R) and Idigicon are excited to announce the release of Platypus - the squishiest shoot-em-up ever - for Palm OS(R) and Windows Mobile(R) smartphones and PDAs.

Based on the cult classic for PC and Mac, Platypus is a fast, frantic and fun side-scrolling arcade shooter with a difference - the entire game is made from clay! The vast continent-spanning city of Collosatropolis has finally reached the limits of its expansion, and tall buildings cover every available space. The Collosotropolan leaders have decided the simplest solution is to invade the neighbouring country of Mungola. They don't anticipate much of a struggle - Mungolans are simple, earthy types without much love for industry. In fact, Mungola's entire defence force consists of a single squadron of fighter planes - the venerable F-27 'Platypus'.

Your mission is to pilot your trusty Platypus and save peaceful Mungola! Fly across the squashy fields and trees, avoid the snowy mountains and protect your planet. Shoot down the enemy ships and marvel as they disappear in a splat! Collect fruit bonuses and a range of power-ups to aid you in your quest!

Platypus is a fantastic, fun arcade game featuring 4 massive worlds each with several challenging levels. It's the perfect casual game for arcade gamers and the perfect arcade game for casual gamers!

Platypus is optimised for play with 5-way or stylus and is available for Palm OS(R) and Windows Mobile(R) smartphones and PDAs, priced $19.95, from the Astraware website: http://www.astraware.com/platypus. Versions for Symbian(R) S60(R) and UIQ(R) will be released in Q2 of 2008.  (Source: Press Release)

Airscanner Mobile Firewall v3.0 released

A Full-Strength Personal Firewall for Your Windows Mobile/Pocket PC handheld.

Airscanner  Mobile Firewall for Windows Mobile Pocket PC is a low-level, bi-directional, packet filtering firewall that examines all incoming and outgoing TCP/IP traffic. This personal firewall ensures that data is permitted based on access control lists that you select from a set of predefined filters, or from filters that you create yourself. The firewall parses packets as they come in (or go out) on the wire or over the air, and it matches the data against a rule set of ports and IP addresses, URLs, etc.

Unlike some other products, Airscanner Mobile Firewall is not a simple port blocker or application port monitor. It is a true, full strength packet filtering application.


Trojans, viruses and spyware have already begun to attack Windows Mobile handhelds. Airscanner Mobile Firewall has thus become a vital part of the multi-layered, “defense in depth” of best security practices. Protect your PDA now with Airscanner Mobile Firewall.  (Source: Press Release)

E-TEN Glofiish X650 Review

In January 2008 we reviewed E-TEN's flagship slate design Windows Mobile Professional phone, the X800. The somewhat lower priced X650 offers the same features minus 3G and the front-facing video conferencing camera. The X650 is the updated version of the X600, with a similar casing but quite a few improvements inside including a VGA display, processor speed bump and more flash memory. Like all E-TEN Glofiish Pocket PC phones, the X650 is an unlocked GSM phone which means you can use it with any carrier's SIM. It's a quad band world phone with EDGE and GPRS for data. It's available from importers and online retailers for approximately $550 US with no contract. The PDA phone is available in two colors: purple (more like a deep plum) and black.   (Source: Lisa Gade, Mobile Tech Review)
