Finally - Fujitsu released the final Windows Vista drivers for the Lifebook T4210
Posted by Arne Hess - at 17:20 CET under Digital - Gadgets

Okay, during the past weeks I was ranting here quite heavily about the missing Windows Vista drivers for my Fujitsu Siemens Lifebook T4210 and therefore I should also tell you, that the missing drivers are available now (or better since late last week).
So if you also own a T4210 (or a T4215) and you was waiting for the drivers to upgrade your Tablet to Windows Vista, you don't have any excuses anymore. ;-)

Please note, that downloading the drivers is a real pain, since Fujitsu (Siemens) offers every driver as a single download, instead of packing them together into one ZIP file. Therefore, the download, as well as extracting all the drivers can take some hours but hey - at least the drivers are available.

How slow can a GPRS connection be?
Posted by Arne Hess - at 10:10 CET under Wireless - Mobile Networks

For the next two days,I'm at an event called "CeBit PreView" where leading IT and CE companies previewing their CeBIT news. So far so good but for sure I cannot listen all the time without working from here as well. No problem at all, thanks to my UMTS flat rate - I initially thought. Just arrived at the conference in the heart of Munich to figure out, E-Plus has *no* UMTS indoor coverage here! Sorry, but this is really in the center of Munich but no UMTS available? Okay, there is always a fallback solution called GPRS and I just tried to download a file. The GPRS speed is more then surprising:

Dear Fujitsu Siemens...
Posted by Arne Hess - at 19:05 CET under Digital - Gadgets

...yesterday, Bill Gates officially launched Windows Vista for everybody (not just biz customers and MSDN and TechNet users) and I wonder when you will release Windows Vista drivers for the masses as well?
One reason for me to move to Fujitsu Siemens was, that I thought you are a "serious" PC manufacture. Not only that I've missed you, beside Toshiba and HP, on the stage - as a Windows Vista launch partner - no - I'm also missing the final Windows Vista drivers for my Fujitsu Siemens Lifebook T4210!

So what's wrong? The Beta drivers are not too bad but some drivers are missed, including auto rotating the display if I switch from Notebook mode to Tablet PC mode - so what's wrong? Was the launch of Windows Vista a surprise or what? Wasn't it announced early enough that you leave your customers in the dust now?

Get your Windows Vista upgraded Fujitsu (Siemens) Lifebook T4210 working with Bluetooth
Posted by Arne Hess - at 19:54 CET under Digital - Gadgets

Wow, Fujitsu Siemens really gave me a hard time to get my Bluetooth working correctly. First, Fujitsu Siemens isn't offering Windows Vista Bluetooth drivers yet but is saying anything about license blah blah blah... Ok, not a big deal at all since Toshiba offers Bluetooth drivers for Windows Vista already, I've downloaded and installed after I've upgraded to Windows Vista Business. Nevertheless, I'm not a big fan of Toshiba's Bluetooth implementation. While their Bluetooth stack offers a fantastic range of supported profiles, I had massive problems using the two profiles I'm using most: ActiveSync to wirelessly sync my Windows Mobile Pocket PCs and Smartphones with my Notebook/Tablet PC and DUN (dial-up networking) to access the Internet via UMTS, using my Pocket PC.
ActiveSync completely failed (I wasn't able to sync via Bluetooth) and DUN had massive problems to establish and keep a stable connection.
Therefore I was trying everything the past 24 hours to get rid of the Toshiba Bluetooth stack but get the original Windows Vista Bluetooth stack working and here's what I did to manage it:
