Re: How to show Panoramas on WindowsMobile6 PPC?
- I bought HTC Herald, unfortunately it does not support PTViewerME2 due
to lack of 3D Graphics support. Having watched PTViewerME2 work on a
much cheaper Nokia phone, I had not thought that this would be such a
major problem. Your problem must be the same. Immervision's player for
mobile is not very good to be honest, I just bought the software just
to create samples as it is the only format (that I found) I can use on
HTC Herald at the moment. But its Warping is just terrible. I am using
Windows Mobile 5, installed Flash Lite that supports Flash7 content
authored for mobile, so Pano2VR would not work as it supports Flash 8
or 9, and probably would need extra functionality to support mobile
even if it could output for Flash7. One of the newer HTCs will support
3D Graphics. I will buy another handheld phone with in-built GPS
system and support for 3D Graphics, but they have not brought all the
models into Turkey yet. I would appreciate if any of you have a model
that you can recommend. I hope my experience helps some of you in your

charge that mentions is actually pretty much the
standard charge that almost *all* mobile users
(in the UK) will pay unless they have a specific
data charge plan. PAYG in this instance refers to
the data traffic, not the overall call charge
This means that standard tariffs can cost users
as much as a penny per kilobyte for data
transfer, or £1 for around 100KB, or around ten
pounds sterling for a megabyte.
For these people, you'd better make sure your panos are worth the cost! :-)
Internet plans that provide much, much better
deals are being pushed hard now. I've been using
a contract that charges £7.50 per month for up to
3GB of data transfer per month. (Rather more
affordable than the £30 I was charged last summer
for checking news reports on my mobile while
working at a festival one weekend.)
I used to seek out free wifi zones, but now I
don't worry about it. Imagine trying to max out
3GB per month on a mobile phone! ;-)
But on my WM5 mobile (rot its soul, where's the
UK iPhone?), Immervision's mobile player only
works with local content, not online stuff.
Peter, are you saying you have the non-mobile,
standard version of Immervision's player working
on your WM6 phone?

yes - it´s running on WM6 prof.
It is not recognised as an application, so i always have to navigate with the FileExplorer to the
folder to start it, but maybe that can be changed somehow (I only have this PPC only for 6

i can really confirm that: i can not complain about the quality of panning on this device. It´s
not as smooth as Spi-V, but to show people what this is all about quite ok!
I also tried PTViewerME2 but did not get it to work due to the lack of 3D support as you have

a large 640x480 screen - it is really not much good at all as a
phone! :-) I might just relegate it to being a pocket VR demo machine
if I got (or rather when I get) an iPhone.
(Although VR support in some way in the iPhone would be absolutely
wonderful. Of course.)

<http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eierlegende_Wollmilchsau> - can't have an
animal that is good at laying eggs, producing wool and milk and still be
for the phone, I would just buy a phone with bluetooth and long battery
life (I am very happy with my seven years old Nokia 6310i - b&w screen
and no polydisturbing sound, although one that has a proper MP3 player
inside could be a bonus).
for mobile computing / VR demo I would get an x86-based subnotebook
rather than a PDA with a weaker CPU.
no place in my world for PDAs nor for smartphones since x86-based
subnotebook have enough juice to go through the day and proper
WiFi/Bluetooth connectivity with a proper display in a form factor
equivalent to PDAs.

*incredibly* useful to be able to carry a VR demo machine around in
I wouldn't try to write an article on the iPhone, and I wouldn't use
it for my main email machine either. But I would use it for *quick*
messaging (SMS, IM, email), *simple* browsing, playing music... and
of course making phone calls. :-)
There is the concern of combining too many things and ending up with
a jack-of-all-trades device. But I think the iPhone has trancended
that; it is proving to be at least pretty good at its multiple core
functions. I think it'd do me. And I'll just have to use the Ameo for
VRs, dangit. :-)

no - not the Standard version is working on this PPC WM6. It´s the mobile version.
PS: i had a typo in my last mail:

very handy to have a small tool around to show as an image tells more than thousand
