10 Reasons Why Microsoft Products Will Outshine Apple iSlate, Nexus One in 2010

Nowadays, all the talk in the tech space is about Apple's possible release of the iSlate and Google's Android-based Nexus One smartphone. Many observers contend that the iSlate will be the most important product release of 2010. Others are saying the Nexus One could be the "iPhone killer" we've all been waiting for. But maybe it's time to shift that focus to Microsoft and why it could dominate the industry in 2010.

The last year was a tough one for Microsoft. Its Windows Mobile platform sank to around 9 percent market share. Google was the first to build hype on Web-based operating systems. And Windows Vista still kept consumers and the enterprise from fully believing in the value Windows 7 offers.

But 2010 is quickly shaping up to be a much different year. With Bing offering a service that can actually stand up to Google Search, Windows 7 carrying the Microsoft banner forward and the possibility of an improved Windows Mobile, 2010 might just be the year when Microsoft regains its spot as the dominant force in the tech industry.   (Source: Don Reisinger, eWeek)

Windows Mobile SMS Sync 2.0 Released

The popular Windows Mobile SMS Sync application has been updated to version 2.0. The new release contains a number of features that make backing up your text messages, or transferring them to a new phone, much easier and quicker – especially for non-technical users. Here are three key new features or areas of improvement in the update:

1. User Interface

The first thing that you will notice about this new release is that the user interface has been completely overhauled. The new interface makes backing up your text messages or restoring them extremely straightforward.

2. Online Backup Storage

The most impressive new feature to the application is the new “Online Backup Storage” option. This free service allows you to save your text message backup on SynergeTech Solutions’ secure server. If you select this as your backup location, you simply login (or create) your account and it takes care of the rest. You can just as easily choose the “Online Backup Storage” as the location to restore text messages from. With this feature, you could transfer your text messages to a new Windows Mobile phone without ever having to copy/email a file to the new device!

3. Compatibility

The third area of the application to be addressed in this release is compatibility. Windows Mobile SMS Sync 2.0 has been thoroughly tested on almost every device type and every version of Windows Mobile. International languages are supported more universally in this release as well. The restore functionality now makes sure to copy all the message properties – this way when you restore your messages, either after a hard reset or to a new phone, they are exactly as they had been before.
