That’s it! Its official! I’m calling 2007 the year of the mobile!
First Apple announce their upcoming iPhone, then Nokia announces their new E90 Communicator. Then i-mate announces their Ultimate range. And the cherry on top off the cake, Microsoft announces their new Windows Mobile 6.
There’s a Windows Mobile 6 Pro Video 1st Look that shows some of the new things in WM6, which I think should be called WM5.5 instead, because the enhancement are NOT worth a major version upgrade (I do, however, think you should upgrade your mobile device should you be given the chance). Here’s the unofficial “What’s new in Windows Mobile 6”.
The things I like most are (in random order):
- Vista effects: almost everything looks like everything in Vista.
- Enhanced security: you can encrypt the contents of your storage card.
- HTML email support: no more that ugly text.
- Enhanced Office Support: office documents look almost as good as on the pc.
- Windows update!!!!
- Internet sharing!!!!
