    I apologize as I'm sure this has been answered somewhere, but I was not able to find the answer by searching on both this forum and the web. I would like to switch to Moto Q (from a 700w), but I have one or two WM5 PPC applications I use that are not (yet) available in a WM5 Smartphone version. However, I find that I am able to navigate and use the app fully by using only the keyboard and D-pad -- that is, a touchscreen is not essential for operation. Would such apps at least run on WM5 Smartphone? TIA.

    Yes, possibly. They managed to run PPC Skype on MS Smartphone for example. Which app do you want to use?

    Thanks for that. That is promising. I wanted to try Skype and AlarmClock.

    doesn't WM5 have a built in alarm clock?

    The WM5 alarm clock is practically useless to me. for example, not loud or persistent enough.

    This might be a starting point.

    I'm liking the "Q" -- because I'm considering a dark-side move. But the reason I need to go to the dark side is for GoToMyPC -- unfortunately, I think the "Q"'s lack of a touch screen make render GoToMyPC unusable. Any ideas? Would these fake cursor programs solve the problem?

    Even if it works it will probably be very cumbersome, unless you know all they keyboard shortcuts of your desktop computer..

    Surur,
    Thanks for the links to that very informative article and to the cursor program. I did test it out (SPHelper) on my 700w and it works well.. it was easy to activate/deactivate the cursor whenever needed (although I can't figure out how to access the supposed hotkeys?). While this is more of a "last resort" type of thing, it will surely come in handy, and eliminates my last major concern about never having the touchscreen available. Goodbye Treo hello Moto Q!
