Windows Mobile 2003 software
for Pocket PC
The next version of Pocket PC software, named Pocket PC 2003, is the latest innovation from the Microsoft® Mobile Devices Division and improves on the already successful Pocket PC.
Pocket PC 2003 represents an even better Pocket PC experience with improved wireless connectivity, a better messaging experience, new and improved media capabilities. This results in an even stronger platform with new ActiveSync® technology, improved connectivity and easier wireless network configuration.
As the mobile device industry matures, connectivity continues to be a key driver of device adoption. Pocket PC 2003 makes it easier than ever to connect to a variety of wireless networks by automatically detecting and easily connecting to Wi-Fi networks. The software also natively supports Bluetooth®, which adds another option for wireless connectivity. Pocket PC 2003 also features a new and easier to use Connection Manager that improves the overall user experience for connectivity functionality on the device.
Note: Connectivity solutions available via devices that integrate with wireless hardware capabilities or through separately purchased wireless accessories. See Pocket PC device manufacturer and wireless ISPs for details.
Just as connectivity drives device adoption, messaging has emerged as the No. 1 usage scenario beyond PIM for devices in a connected state. With this in mind, Pocket PC 2003 delivers “Always Up-To-Date” (AUTD) synchronization capability for e-mail, calendar and contacts. Pocket PC 2003 also supports Exchange Server 2003 for improved real-time e-mail, calendar and contacts support. For devices equipped with an integrated or modular keyboard, Pocket PC 2003 delivers a great keyboard experience by simplifying navigation and input in e-mail and instant messaging (IM).
