midlets' on your Pocket PC phone? Do you want to use the great, free, superfast alternative web browser Opera Mini and Google Maps on your phone? The excellent folks over at XDA-Dev (hands down the most lively Pocket PC Phone Edition forum on the Web) have just released a new version of the best Midlet manager for Pocket PC Phone Edition devices, Intent Midlet Manager version 188.8.131.523 build 20060907. The latter means it's about a year newer than the Intent Midlet Manager version that has come with most of the Pocket PC phones and is really worth upgrading to. For example, it already supports WM5 softkeys (which were still missing from earlier versions); it has no problems with Google Maps either. It's available here (xda [at] ftp [dot] xda-developers [dot] com/Wizard/Misc/Risidoro_Intent_MIDlet_Manager_v11.zip">direct link to the ZIP file). All you need to do is uncompressing the CAB file from the archive, transfer it to your Pocket PC phone and just tap it to be installed. Note that you need to install it in the main storage and it will NOT work on non-Phone Edition devices. That is, don't even try to install it on, say, a Dell Axim x51v - it just won't work. I've thoroughly tested it on my HTC Universal and found it excellent.
