SPB TV 2.0 now available!

SPB TV is a real winner (get it here), and is fast becoming one of my all-time favorite apps on either iPhone or Windows Mobile (see my early WM review here).

Spb TV is a recently released application by Spb Software--a well-done IPTV viewer for tuning in publicly available worldwide channels.

YouTube release their own YouTube client for Windows Mobile

There have been several YouTube players for Windows Mobile, two of them being, in my opinion, the best: the commercial, but highly recommended CorePlayer (which, with the recent, 1.3.0 upgrade, has fixed almost all the problems I’ve talked about in my dedicated all-in-one bible) and the free FlashVideoBundle.

REVIEW & COMPARISON: Spb Online

The Spb folks have just released their online portal, Spb Online. Three other reviews have already been published (some hours ago) on it.
