Fox uses Treo to break N.Y. plane crash news

Scott Wilder, a cameraman for the network, had been about 20 blocks away on another assignment when the crash occurred. Wilder ran uptown and reported live from the scene using a hand-held Palm Treo smartphone that uses the existing mobile network to transmit video to the Fox News control room. From there, Fox News sent it out live on TV to supplement other video being shot by local traffic helicopters.

Wilder's work represents one of the first instances of a network using video captured via mobile phone camera live on the air. Fox News has experimented with the practice several times in recent weeks with CometVision, software designed by Ohio-based Comet Video Technologies.

"We've been waiting for the opportunity to get live pictures on the air from inside a cellular network, and we wanted to take it to the next level, make it easy for people and make it portable," said Ben Ramos, director of field operations for Fox News.  (Source: Paul J. Gough, Hollywood Reporter)

The upgraded software includes a number of new features such as support for typed text in addition to digital ink, improved inking on Tablet PCs and UMPCs, Office 2007-like user interface, document templates, and password-protection with 256-bit strong encryption.

"We are pleased to unveil PhatPad 4.0 for Beta testing, as user feedback is a key component to the developments we make," said PhatWare President Stan Miasnikov. "PhatPad 4.0 will keep PhatWare on the forefront of Microsoft Windows-based devices, Tablet and Desktop PC technology, and we look forward to the testers' responses."

The application works on Windows Mobile-based Pocket PC 2003 or later devices and Tablet, Desktop and UMPCs with Windows 2000 SP3 or later including Windows Vista RC1 Build 5728 or later with Windows Mobile Device Center component.
