I am looking to see if there are any updates for MS Internet Explorer. I have the original version, I can't seem to find it right now. I am just nackered from setting up my WIFI on it. I have just now done the updates from NEC's website, all two of them. I have had my unit for ever. I have a NEC MobilePro 880. Its old, but it gets the job done. I also have a Samsung i730 that I use as well. Can anyone give me advice or point me in that direction?

There may be a plugin or two to enhance IE on your device, or not, I'm not sure. For a Pocket PC one can use MultiIE or SPB Pocket Plus, but on an H/PC I don't know... Perhaps there's a version of NetFront or Opera you could use instead? Microsoft does not, so far, provide any IE updates for these mobile devices.

There is an alternative browser for MIPS devices running H/PC Pro (CE 2.11). It's called WorldTalk, and can be downloaded here (among other places):

Another alternative for the 880 is to upgrade to H/PC 2000 (CE 3.0) by swapping the ROM chip with one from a 790. It's pretty easy (took me about a minute), and 790 ROMs can be found on eBay from time to time pretty cheap (mine was about $18 ). Smile
