BROWSING: MultiIE for Pocket PC 2002 is cooking
Posted by Arne Hess - at 19:26 CET under 02 - Windows Mobile News

Good news for everybody who is using Peter's MultiIE 1.3 (Winner of the Best Product Award 2001 in the category Internet tools) and is waiting now for a Pocket PC 2002 version. Currently Peter is working on this and I'm happy to tell you that the first early Alpha version is really cool.

Peter is working on implementing some cool additional features. However - because it's an Alpha version right now it's to early to talk about it because in this stage of a development it's all the time a question if everything is running how it was planned. Anyway, at least you can expect a MuliIE 1.3 version for Pocket PC 2002 but keep the fingers crossed to get some additional features... ;-)

Stay tuned to get the latest update!

Cheers ~ Arne
