Your mobile computing experience is probably one of the most important aspects of technology in your business.
Choices are Palm, Microsoft, BlackBerry, Symbian and maybe a few other providers.
Microsoft launched Windows Mobile 6.0 on February 11, 2007 and it promises and indeed appears to be much better than previous versions.
The press release reads – Windows Mobile 6 delivers the ability to view e-mails in their original rich HTML format with live links to web and SharePoint(R) sites, which means text and images are displayed as they would be on a PC, and are available from a corporate e-mail server such as Exchange Server 2007, from web-based accounts such as Windows Live(TM) Hotmail or from a myriad of other popular service providers. Windows Mobile 6 also includes Windows Live for Windows Mobile, which provides customers with a rich set of Windows Live services. For example, now through Windows Live Messenger, people can chat with more than one person at one time, express themselves through animated figures, quickly send a file or image, or record and send voice notes.
New features include:
– Better-looking e-mail. Users view e-mail the way it was intended with
its original pictures, tables and formatting, whether from a corporate
e-mail server such as Exchange Server 2007, web-based accounts such as
Windows Live Hotmail or Yahoo! Mail, or a wide range of other service
– Ease of viewing and editing of Office system documents. The new Office
Mobile suite, built for all Windows Mobile powered devices, gives users
a truly familiar and powerful experience with rich viewing and editing
capabilities, without having to worry about the deletion of critical
formatting and images.
– E-mail management and setup with fewer clicks. Nine new one-click
options have been added, including Reply All, setting a flag, moving a
message to a subfolder, and, of course, Delete. Users can set an
automatic out-of-office reply while on the road when using a Windows
Mobile 6 powered device and Exchange Server 2007.
– Synchronisation with Windows Vista. Windows Vista(TM) and the Windows
Mobile Device Center take the guesswork out of managing a device and
swapping music, pictures, movies and Outlook information between PC and
– Smart calendar bar. This innovative new feature gives users the ability
to understand at a glance the day or week ahead and quickly determine
open time on their schedules. With Exchange Server 2007, they can see
who is attending a meeting and forward or reply to meeting requests.
– Web search, e-mail, instant messaging (IM) and weblogging all together.
Windows Live for Windows Mobile will provide customers with a rich set
of services including Windows Live Hotmail, Windows Live Messenger,
Live Search and Windows Live Spaces, uniquely designed to work with
Windows Mobile software. Users can also find all their contacts in one
unified list and see presence information on their Windows Live
– Contacts with context. Call history is now placed where it belongs, in
each individual contact card, so people spend less time searching and
more time communicating.
