In September, we wrote about the Poker DIY Tourney Manager, a free blind timer and tournament management tool for your home games.  The poker clock features a blind timer, blind management tool, chip calculators, and other tools to help any tournament run better.

The original Poker DIY Tourney Manager was designed to run in the Microsoft Silverlight environment so it could be used locally on your computer or via the website.  The program has gained popularity from home game players because of its robust tool set and the fact that it’s completely free.

The program works anywhere you have a computer with an internet connection.  However, what if you didn’t have one available?  No internet?  No computer or laptop with the software installed?  No problem!  The folks behind the software recently announced that Poker DIY Tourney Manager is now available for free as a download on Windows Phone 7 Mobile devices.

If you are interested in checking it out and have one of these spiffy new phones, you can download it for free from the Zune Marketplace.  Right now, it’s the only free poker clock and blind timer on there.  There’s a neat video tutorial of the software in action on YouTube to demonstrate the features.

The video is two minutes long and starts out showing the timer setup, which shows the blind level, how long that level has been going, and how much the blinds are.  It also shows what the next blind level will be and the time left.

Inside the timer setup, you can see the list of blind levels and even check out when the breaks are going to be in the tournament.  If you want to change the attributes of a given blind level, simply press on it and you’ll be able to check or uncheck whether it’s a break and change the number of minutes the level will last.  You can also change the small blind and big blind amounts.

Poker DIY Tourney Manager has a complete hand ranking chart in case you happen to be at the juiciest poker game ever.  There is also an “About” section that talks about the entire Poker DIY concept and company along with a link to their website.

Later this month, Windows Mobile 7 phones will hit the market for multiple carriers.  It’s been rumored widely that AT&T personnel are already being trained in Windows Mobile 7 technology since it’s widely expected that AT&T will lose its exclusivity to the iPhone in the coming months.

AT&T will carry the Samsung Focus, LG Quantum, and HTC Surround phones.  The Quantum has a slide out keyboard, while the Surround features a slide out SRS Dolby Mobile surround sound feature.  T-Mobile will have the HTC HD7, which will sport the largest screen for a Windows Phone.  On the Microsoft site, Dell is listed as a cellular carrier featuring the Dell Venue Pro phone, which will work on the T-Mobile network.  Only AT&T and T-Mobile will carry Windows Mobile 7 phones at launch.
