Landscape for Pocket PC users

I was looking for a way to view Pocket IE in Landscape Mode because the regular Portrait Mode just fucking sucks for viewing websites. Turns out that there is no way to view it in Landscape. Can't figure out why MS hasn't added this feature.

Anyway, found some alternatives like Thunder Hawk which is a competely seperate browser from Pocket IE but it's a subscription service. Something about Thunder Hawk caching and recreating websites on there servers and formatting it specifically for there browser. Looks awesome but I can't see myself paying a monthly or yearly fee for using it.

So I did some research and found this product called JS Landscape 3.0 (http://www.jimmysoftware.com/) and it's working out pretty good. Can't browse the internet from work and I don't have anything cached so I can't see how it views my regular websites but so far it's looking great. It puts everything in Landscape not just Pocket IE. Check it out. Cost $9.95 and I think I might actually pay for this product

Yet.

Once Dell gets their heads out of their asses, and fixes the WM2003 fiasco for all new and current owners, then the Axim's will be back to selling like hotcakes, and with the other PPC's running WM2003, all these independant software vendors are going to have to switch over, or at least update to add the support.

I'll have to check it out as well... Given the absence of landscape viewing, looking at the 'net on the PDA is pretty damn worthless. The WiFi is nice, but considering the other frustrations, I'm considering the purchase of one of these after they are released (and once an irresistable deal pops up!).

That's pretty pimp Sean. Just wish it was a little more powerfull and had more features. I saw some tablets like that in a catalog I was looking through that were running (I think) Pocket PC or Windows CE and were like $600 or so. I'll have to look for it again.
