Mirosoft finally announces Windows Mobile 6 (Crossbow)
A few days before the
beginning of 3GSM,
Microsoft officially announced its new version of the Windows
Mobile operating system, with the code name “Crossbow” and the final
number “6”. There are a few improvement when compared to the
but what is more important is that the new OS should have taken care of
annoying problems the 5.0 version has. The OS will
now come with built-in support for previewing and editing of Word, Excel
and PowerPoint documents, as well as full integration for Windows Live.
HTML-formatted email and enchanced Calendar featuring "Calendar ribbon" are also some of the improvements.The
Windows Mobile 6 will not only be more powerful, but will also use your
hardware better, making your mobile device faster and more efficient.
A new version scheme is also introduced:
- Windows Mobile for Smartphones - Windows Mobile Standard
- Windows Mobile for Pocket PCs - Windows Mobile Classic
- Windows Mobile for Pocket PC Phones - Windows Mobile Professional
Expect our hands-on report on the final Windows Mobile 6 (Crossbow) when we test it at the 3GSM Show in Barcelona, next week.
