Things are certainly looking up for Windows Mobile as their upcoming Windows Phone 7 has received favourable impressions from developers who have tried the new UI coding so far. In addition to this, news has just come out that users can now turn their mobile phone handset into a motion detecting camera.
VIO is a free application which is available for Windows Mobile phones and the in-built camera installed in their handset can now be used to monitor a room to detect any motion. This impressive software can also take pictures automatically and relay them back to you by text or direct to your email account.
This resolution independent software can be used as a kind of entertaining burglar detector as its featured motion detection can alert you to any intruders in the room, while it can also play sounds.
VIO will work with Windows Mobile 5.0 – 6.5 and requires .Net CF 3.5 to run.
As for the next-generation smartphone from Microsoft, Windows Phone 7 will have business and personal users alike waiting to see if this device really can take on Apple’s iPhone. Early signs are looking good though and developers are happy with the early versions they have tested. Let’s hope that this new OS platform really does set the standard for mobile working in the future.
