This morning I received an e-mail in my inbox from Doug Goldring, announcing the public launch of the new Windows Mobile website “My Today Screen“. I already knew of it’s existance, because I had the pleasure to be part of the soft launch earlier this week. Doug Goldring and Tariq Bamadhaj have started this website together, so we can be sure to expect some very good content.
Doug is known from contributions to Gear Diary, and many other things, but mostly from his many reviews on JustAnotherMobileMonday. If you´ve ever looked for a review before purchasing a game for your Pocket PC, there´s a good chance you´ve read one of his articles.
Tariq is an Expert Blogger at Smartphone and Pocket PC Magazine’s website, but also the founder of EtenBlogDotCom. I´ve found EtenBlogDotCom to be a great website, not just for people using Eten devices – even if you skip the Eten content there’s lots of good stuff there.
Read the press announcement after the break!
On April 1,2008, Douglas Goldring and Tariq Bamadhaj will launch a new Windows Mobile-centric website, My Today Screen: Another Look At Windows Mobile (http://www.mytodayscreen.com). The new site is devoted to the idea of making Windows Mobile accessible to all users, from the novice holding a device for the first time, to the experienced power user. To accomplish this goal, this all-in-one resource for Windows Mobile users, will provide reviews, tips, guides, and expert analysis of the industry to help users realize the full potential of their Windows Mobile device .
Goldring, who will serve as Editor-In-Chief of the new site, is the former Editor-In-Chief of Just Another Mobile Monday, and a regular contributor to Gear Diary. Bamadhaj, who will serve as the Administration and Advertising Director, is the founder of Eten Blog dot Com, and a regular Expert Blogger at Smartphone and Pocket PC Magazine’s website.
The site quietly soft launched on Tuesday, March 25. “The soft launch was great,” said Goldring, “it allowed us to test the site under live conditions and tweak it before the official launch.” Added Bamadhaj, “The feedback we’ve gotten during the soft launch has positioned us better for the official launch and we can’t wait for it!”
In order to celebrate the April 1 launch of the new site, My Today Screen will be holding a week of giveaways from April 1 through the 7. These giveaways, which are designed to introduce readers to the site, will include over a thousand dollars worth of software and accessories from dozens of the most highly respected Windows Mobile developers. A list of the sponsors of this giveaway is attached.
My Today Screen is also actively seeking contributors to add their own unique perspectives on Windows Mobile and Windows Mobile software and accessories to the site. Anyone interested in contributing can contact My Today Screen by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
