"Can We Talk?"
A SIP Phone Download

Here�s a free download that enables you to make voice �telephone� calls using your Pocket PC and an Internet connection. You will need to have a SIP phone client installed on your Pocket PC (see free downloads below). You'll also need a carrier service to place calls. You can try Free World Dialing as your carrier (free signup; see link below) or others.

Installing the X-Lite SIP phone will set you up on Free World Dialing automatically. This will save you from having to enter all the settings to get you connected to a carrier. Once you've learned your way around the SIP world, you might want to move up to X-Pro. A special thanks to Xten Corporation for agreeing to give the full version of X-Pro ($50 value when released) to everyone who installs this beta version. Way to go, Xten!

After you get set up, you might want to talk to someone! Try our FREE Pocket PC conference call by dialing 511 [press green talk button] and entering 0180577# as the access code. You'll be asked to say your name. When you join the conference call, you'll be announced to the group.

Happy calling!

It lets you view network activity, and view and edit network settings, IP addresses, and DHCP configuration.

Nobunaga�s Puzzle

This is fun puzzle game that gets harder as you play. All you have to do is to rotate the numbers into correct order, within a limited number of moves. If you use all your moves without finishing the puzzle, you lose one life. If you run out of lives, you lose the game. When that happens, a voice says, �oh no!� and you have to start over again. There are 3 levels of play--easy, medium, and hard--and a high-score screen that records the best times achieved for each level. The background music sounds like something you might hear in a monastery.

Expresso Run

This game takes you into the future, when human civilization has spread to other planets. You have the task of delivering precious coffee beans to these planets in your high-tech truck. Initially you can take your delivery only through the simplest tracks. You will get access to more difficult tracks when you have scored enough points in the simple ones. The number of points you get depends on how much time you take to deliver the crates and how many crates you deliver. On the way, watch out for falling rocks, blizzards, coffee-snarfing predators, and tough vegetation. You can also collect bonus items that will boost the speed of your truck or protect you from the coffee-eaters.

Pocket Bornes

Pocket Bornes for Pocket PCs is based on the old French auto-race card game, Mille Bornes. Cards in your hand might advance your car by a certain number of miles, fill your gas tank, inflate your tires or give you some other bonus or boost. Or they might slow down or stop your opponent's car by puncturing his tire, imposing a speed limit, flashing a red light, etc. You strategize to win the race by moving your own car while slowing down or stopping your opponent's car. Beware, though! Your opponent can play those same hazard cards against you! The game can be played by two players, or by one player against the CPU. A hand usually ends when one player completes 700 miles, but that player then has the option to extend the race to 1000 miles in an attempt to score more points. The game ends when one player reaches 5000 points.
