Hi Jaffar -- I would be very interested in beta testing your software, and 
also helping out with the coding if you are making it open source as you 
say.  My phone is running Symbian.  How different is the code for Symbian 
versus Windows CE?

o yes. it is for symbian and the smart phones based on windows.  I am
planning to write the program for all symbian and windows based phones, for
now, but will explore the possibility of writing java based ones in the
future.  Cheers!
