Microsoft is about to release the next version of Windows Mobile (6.0) on Monday at the 3GSM conference in Barcelona. MS has certainly been busy with recent launches of Vista and Office 2007. According to the article on The Tech Chronicles, devices with the new OS will start to appear in three to four months. Apparently customers using T-mobile's Dash will also be able to upgrade from v5.0.
Some of the more notable improvements include:
-A Vista-like interface (?)
-An improved e-mail experience (view email with HTML, tables), set their "out of office reply" remotely using their phone.
-New Office Mobile Suite. All Windows Mobile 6.0 devices will come with Office Mobile, which will enable people view and edit documents.
-Windows Live will allow users to easily perform searches or instant messaging.
-ActiveSync will be replaced (when paired with Vista)
The improvements include a more flexible calendar program, better security options and Internet telephony built in.
