Side_windowsJon Westfall of Pocket PC Thoughts has an intriguing review of Innobec’s SideWindow product for Windows Mobile devices. Essentially, you can utilize your handheld as a secondary monitor for your Windows desktop; it’s not quite Windows SideShow technology but it’s a slick way to get a wee bit more screen real estate. While you won’t gain the kind of productivity you would with an extra full-sized monitor, I could see this useful for apps that have a relatively small footprint like a VoIP client, digital audio player, or a chat application. For $15, it could be a nice addition if you need just a tad more screen. Be forwarned though: the application doesn’t list Windows Mobile 5 as officially supported even though it generally worked for Jon.

    I tried the ZoneScreen on my XP operating system with my Pharos GPS525 on ActiveSync 4.2 and it works! It’s an excellent Geek idea, but I don’t really have any practical use for it. Still, I NEED to keep the software loaded, just in case… Thanks, Lorie!

  3. Hello Gene,

    For a professionnel video maker with a Notebook and a station with 2 monitors, you can use the notebook as a third place for special floating pallet. Idem for a photograph with a station with one monitor using now his Notebook for a better use of Photoshop or Gimp. Or for have a second, or third application on the whole new available screen. Ordinary there is no VGA entry on a Notebook !

    You can access the second or third virtual screen with Graphic Display settings. Look at this pic :
