i-mate SPL... Slim WM5 Smartphone

Here's something out of i-mate it's the SPL.
It looks like a Moto SLVR knockoff but it features Windows Mobile 5 for Smartphone.
Some specs:
TI OMAP 730 200mhz Processor
64Mb RAM/128Mb ROM
Tri-band GSM/GPRS [no EDGE, 3G or 3.5G]
Bluetooth 1.2 [dunno if it supports A2DP]
miniSD Expansion
qVGA display [portrait 240x320]
miniUSB [used for syncing and audio input/output - I hate non-standard jacks for audio]
12 mm thickness [slim profile]
2MP Camera
no WiFi [not a big deal if it had 3 or 3.5G but it doesn't!]

Apart from being slim and having WM5 there really isn't anything that special about this mobile. It is good to see more choices though. Choices are definitely good.

Tips & Tricks|Orientation Aware Backgrounds

I just wanted to share some stuff I learned over at xda-dev's forum today.
Anyway as the title states this is about today themes and Orientation Aware Backgrounds. It's really quite simple
All you need is 2 images [3 if you want to change the Start Menu image as well] of the proper resolution.
tdywater_320_240.gif [Landscape Image] = 320 x 240 image
tdywater_240_320.gif [Portrait Image] = 240 x 320 image
stwater [Start Menu Image] = 190 x 290 image
tdywater_640_480.gif [Landscape Image] = 640 x 480 image
tdywater_480_640.gif [Portrait Image] = 480 x 640 image
stwater [Start Menu Image] = 399 x 586 image
What you do is copy the files to \Windows directory and viola! Orientation Aware Backgrounds!
Notes: The theme's default images will be used once you switch themes. So you would need to copy the files back again to \Windows dir for it to work again, what I do is I have placed Wallpaper sets in ZIP files on my Storage Card so I can change and change as desired.…
