MWg Zinc II Review

The MWg Zinc II is a tweener; a traditional old school Windows Mobile Professional QWERTY side-slider with a few updates to help it compete with today's trendy touch screen WinMo devices like the HTC Touch Diamond, HTC Touch Pro, Samsung Omnia and the slightly older HTC Touch Dual. In fact, if you crossed the E-TEN Glofiish M810 (the Zinc II seems to be a re-worked M810) with the Touch Dual you'd have the Zinc II. MWg is a Singapore-based company made up of the old O2 Windows Mobile phone team, backed by Expansys, a UK-based online retailer of all sorts of cool phones and other mobile technology. The Zinc II is an unlocked GSM phone with worldwide 3G HSDPA that's sold unlocked for use with any GSM carrier. It is not offered by US carriers, but will work fine with T-Mobile and AT&T. (Source: Lisa Gade, MobileTechReview)

New beta release: Airscanner Firewall 3.5

Airscanner Firewall 3.5 is the latest release of our popular firewall program. This version includes all the features we have added over the years, provides a few tweaks, but also now has the added ability to password protect the configuration options.

Our goal in this feature is to provide parents and employees with the ability to control the devices they are responsible for. Possible scenarios include:

*Creating an acceptable list of websites that the user can visit - all others are restricted.
*Blocking ALL web traffic.
*Blocking instant messaging programs.
*Permit only email traffic.
*And many more options...

With the explosion of Windows Mobile powered Smartphone’s that can access the Internet through data connections or Wi-Fi, the chance that a child or employee could be accessing inappropriate websites is quite high. With Airscanner Firewall 3.5, this risk can be mitigated.

This release is for Windows Mobile 5 and 6 Professional only (not WM6 Standard for Smartphone):

We hope you enjoy this exciting new product. We look forward to hearing from you!  (Source: Press Release)
