Independent which data enabled mobile phone from the major manufactures (Nokia, Siemens, Ericsson, ...) or which network operator you are using. Together with shortcuts to Inbox and Internet Explorer, the integrated SMS client guarantees seamless communication in an comfortable way.

After installing c2i on your Pocket PC device you will have a tool bar in the today screen, which covers all different types of communication and the possibility to customize your device in the setup area. This feature is mainly for advanced users.

Currently I have no information if c2i is also available with an English GUI and how it works if the operator is not listed. Also it's still not available for download anywhere but the concept looks promising. I try to review it as soon as I get a reviewers copy!
