If you are familiar with Xiaomi, you might have heard that they are not the most compliant when it comes to the General Public License that makes the core of Android open to us. The terms of the GPLv2 state that since the Android kernel is based on the Linux kernel, which is licensed under GPL,v2 Android has to be open-source for everyone to study or modify, and those that modify the Android kernel have to make their sources immediately available for...
VoIP Application for Windows Mobile
XDA member ardec1 told us about a free application for your Windows Mobile device. Pocket Talk is a VoIP app that allows you to make calls over the Internet to other phones for free, you can sign up with the SIP Gateway Service and you can also make calls to any normal telephone. The OP has tried this on a HTC Sprint Touch Pro 2, a T-Mobile HD2, a HTC Diamond, and an HTC Fuze and reported working well on each one. The only difference with the paid version is that it unlocks some additional features that most people probably don’t need anyway. Moreover, this is not trial ware so it has no expiration.

I have been trying to set up a VoIP client on my Windows Mobile phone for a long time, starting with the HTC Wizard which I could never get to work.
I have finally managed to get a VoIP client with a really nice interface working on several phones that I have tried it on.
I am using ViaTalk as my provider but it should work with any VoIP provider.
It works great (with a slight delay, nothing that I can’t live with) on an unlocked HTC Sprint Touch Pro 2, a T-Mobile HD2, a HTC Diamond and an HTC Fuze.
The application is by NCH software out of Australia and it is free to use, or if you want to unlock all of the features of the application, download and register the business edition.
Or if you would like, PM me and I will be happy to send it to you as an attachment to an email.

A few months ago, we came up with the idea of presenting the history of flagship devices released by some of the major Android OEMs. In this, we've had the pleasure of bringing you the stories of Sony (Ericsson) and Samsung. Now, it's time for our third and final installment. This is a very special episode, as the OEM I will talk about was heavily connected to Android and the beginnings of XDA as a whole. Yes, I'm talking about HTC, the...
