MOTOMODDING has posted a file (requires registration) which is purported to be the official Windows Mobile 6.1 Standard ROM update for the AT&T version of the Motorola Q 9h Global. We got word not long ago that AT&T will be releasing its WinMo6.1 update for the Q 9h sometime in late July or August, so it’s at least somewhat reasonable to assume this leaked ROM is the real thing.
Keep in mind that this update is not yet official, so you should proceed with caution.
UPDATE: The ROM image does indeed upgrade the Q 9h Global to WM6.1 Standard, but doesn’t include AT&T’s data service settings; as a result, 3G connectivity appears to be a problem after the update is installed. A post on AT&T’s user forms indicate that the official WM6.1 update for the Motorola Q 9h may be released on August 22, 2008.
If you’re a proud owner of the new Palm Treo 800w Smartphone, you may have noticed that you can’t voice dial from a Bluetooth headset. Well, Palm doesn’t want your Bluetooth nightmare to continue, and have released a patch which adds this functionality.
You can download the update on your PC and apply the update via ActiveSync/Windows Mobile Device Center or you can update right from your Treo by pointing your mobile browser to www.palm.com/800wota.
We’re not in Beta 2 territory here, but the folks at Opera have updated their Mobile v9.5 beta browser with a notification sound fix.
From the Opera Mobile blog:
We have updated the beta1 with a fix for the (very annoying) bug that turned off the notification sounds. The notification bugfix was relatively trivial and had a low risk. We are aware of the other bugs and issues, but these aren’t addressed in this update.
Visit the Opera Mobile web page to download the new build of Beta 1.

Yet another Zune Phone rumor has been loosed thanks to a story posted at jkOnTheRun. According to their anonymous source, Microsoft has been having meetings to discuss a Zune Phone designed to help the company do battle with Apple’s iPhone. The Zune Phone would be powered by a specialized version of Windows Mobile 7 and include a lot of functionality powered by Windows Live services (why wait for the Zune Phone, MS?!).
We suppose a ZunePhone is possible, but shouldn’t Microsoft focus on making Windows Mobile 7 a modern, worthy competitor to Apple’s iPhone OS before they go hardware crazy?
