Palm Removes Verizon Treo Updates

Palm has removed software updates for both the Treo 700p and Treo 700w/wx smartphones from their site.

According to Palm, the updates were removed for the following reason:

We have taken down the Verizon Wireless Treo 700p and 700w/wx updaters as a result of increasing customer reports of network connectivity issues following the updates. We are currently investigating the issue and will re-post as soon as they become available.

The reported error displays “Error 3000 – Data network is not available” when attempting to connect to the data network. This error does not affect your device or personal data in any other way. Thank you for your patience.

Thanks David!

MarkSpace Adds Support For Windows Mobile 6

Mark/Space has announced the release of version 4.0 of The Missing Sync for Windows
Mobile, adding support for Windows Mobile 6 Professional along with a host of new features. Palm has announced the Treo 750 will receive an update to Windows Mobile 6. This latest update from Mark/Space ensures Mac users will have a syncing solution that supports the new Microsoft OS.

"For more than a year now, The Missing Sync for Windows Mobile has been widely regarded as the best way to connect Windows Mobile 5 devices to Mac OS X, allowing users to synchronize everything from contacts and calendars to Microsoft Office files and iTunes podcasts," said Brian Hall, Mark/Space president and CEO. "Now, with the release of version 4.0, we’re providing support for the very latest devices running Windows Mobile 6 Professional, Standard and Classic, including the HTC Touch, Motorola Q9 and upgraded Samsung Blackjack, giving Mac users complete freedom in their choice of
mobile device."

New Features

  • A new Video plugin supports importing videos taken with the built-in camera
    present on many Windows Mobile devices. These videos can be imported
    directly into an iPhoto album or into a folder of the user’s choosing
    anywhere on their Mac. This feature includes the option to delete
    successfully imported movies from the device, freeing up storage space for
    other uses.
  • The Video plugin also provides encoding and mobile playback capabilities,
    which give users the option to easily encode DRM-free QuickTime video from
    the Mac and download it to their Windows Mobile device for playback while
    on the go. A simple drag and drop begins the encoding and download process.
    A player with support for MP4 video, such as Windows Media Player Mobile
    10, is required for mobile video playback.
  • A new Call Log plugin and matching Call Log application for Mac OS X
    provide access to the log of phone calls made and received with
    phone-enabled Windows Mobile devices. During each sync operation, the Call
    Log plugin reads the call log stored on the device and copies its data to
    the Mac. The included Call Log app on the Mac can then be used to sort,
    filter, annotate and search through the list of calls and view call dates
    and durations. Integration with Apple’s Address Book application provides
    additional information related to known contacts, including company name
    and contact photo, while a toolbar button expedites the process of creating
    a new contact in Address Book from call log data. An export function
    provides the ability to use Excel or a database application to further
    manipulate the data, a useful feature for attorneys or other professionals
    who track and bill for their time.
  • Version 4.0 of The Missing Sync for Windows Mobile also includes a new SMS
    Log plugin and matching SMS Log application for Mac OS X. Working in
    combination, these components provide access to the device’s log of sent
    and received SMS text messages. Messages are grouped by contact and easily
    searched using Apple’s Spotlight technology. Like the Call Log application,
    the SMS Log application also integrates with Apple’s Address Book app to
    gather information for known contacts. This feature not only provides a
    backup for often-critical communications sent to or from a mobile device,
    but it also allows users to access that information with their Mac.

Missing Sync for Windows Mobile version 4.0 retails for $39.95 with upgrades running $24.95. For more information, please visit Mark/Space.
