    Microsoft announce Windows Mobile 6

    Microsoft just couldn’t wait for 3GSM and have announced Windows Mobile 6.

    Windows Mobile 6

    Windows Mobile 6 must be one of the industry’s worst kept secrets with screen-shots and even complete (illegal) ROMs leaked on the internet weeks ago.

    It has also been confirmed that Windows Mobile 6 will come in 3 different flavours depending on the type of device upon which it is installed:

  • Windows Mobile 5.0 for Smartphone becomes Windows Mobile 6 Standard
  • Windows Mobile 5.0 for Pocket PC Phone Edition becomes Windows Mobile 6 Professional
  • Windows Mobile 5.0 for Pocket PC becomes Windows Mobile 6 Classic
  • Windows Mobile 6 feature highlights:

  • Full support for HTML email (within the limitations of IE Mobile’s rendering engine of course)
  • Office Mobile now included, with support for reading and editing Office documents on the Smartphone
  • New streamlined functioning of email client: one click delete, reply, etc. Set email flags for follow-up.
  • Set “Out of Office” function directly on the device (with an Exchange server of course)
  • Windows Vista synchronization with Windows Mobile Device Center
  • Calendar ribbon in the calendar application gives you the ability to see your free/busy time easier
  • Windows Live client
  • Call History is now a part of the contact itself, so you can see when you last phoned that person, etc.
  • Internet sharing: there’s a new built-in application to make using your device as a modem much easier
