Twitter is one of the most popular social networking services around, and over the last year it’s worked its way into many aspects of our lives. For some time, however, the Twitter app selection for Windows Mobile devices was practically nonexistent.
But in the past several months, a handful of Windows Mobile Twitter apps have been released, and we hope to see their number continue to grow.
Our favorite Twitter client for Windows Mobile at the moment is moTweets. There are several reasons for this, but the main reason we love moTweets is that it has an attractive Twitter-esque UI, just about every option a user could hope for and generally solid performance on touchscreen Windows Mobile smartphones.
If you can’t stop tweeting, Twittering, or whatever you choose to call using Twitter too much, grab a copy of moTweets from Handango and try it for yourself.
One of the only true Gmail disappointments over the years has been the service’s lack of Push support for most mobile devices. Push, the ability to have new email notifications and content pushed to a device in real time, has long been the preferred method of email delivery for mobile users.
For several years we’ve been hoping Google would come and save us from our email-checking doldrums, but month after month, our call went unanswered…
On this glorious Wednesday, we are very happy to report that Gmail disappointment has been vanquished. Today is our check-for-new-mail-every-five-minutes Independence Day. Today we put away the Prozac because… Push Gmail is now a reality!
Users of Windows Mobile Smartphones or the iPhone (running OS 3.0+) can now setup their devices for Push Gmail support. The service requires Exchange, which both handset types support.

We’ve been wondering what’s been taking AT&T so long to add the HTC Touch Pro2; after all, Sprint, T-Mobile and Verizon Wireless have already leaped aboard the TP2 train, and AT&T has long been a leader in Windows Mobile offerings. So what gives?
Today we think we have our answer:
The AT&T version of the HTC Touch Pro2, the AT&T Tilt 2, will ship with Windows Mobile 6.5 pre-installed on October 6.
This information comes from BGR, a site known for many things — frequently incorrect product release information not being one of them. According to BGR’s source (their “ninja”), the Tilt 2 will be released on the same day as the official launch of the Windows Mobile 6.5 OS. Hmmm… And with photos (like the one above) showing WM6.5 running on the handset being posted, we think it’s a safe bet that AT&T made a decision to delay its Touch Pro2 release in order to forego that whole end-user 6.5 upgrade thing.
