13th February 2008, the GSMA announced the winners for its annual GSMA Global
Mobile Awards in Barcelona and Microsoft got it in the "Best Mobile Enterprise Product or Service" category for its last year's announced Windows Mobile 6
operating system for smartphones.
At a glittering gala dinner in Barcelona, hosted by international comedian
Graham Norton, awards were presented by actor, writer and producer Isabella
Rossellini, Bollywood actress Sherlyn Chopra and from the music world.
Microsoft is connecting people to the information that matters most to them,
anywhere, anytime. Windows Mobile 6 makes it easier for businesses to go mobile
with increased integration with existing Microsoft technology, new mobile
security features and added functionality to help employees collaborate while on
Judges' comments: "A leading platform for business owing to the ease of
integration with Microsoft Exchange infrastructure. For the SMB market in
particular, Windows Mobile 6 is an attractive proposition."
Windows Mobile 6 advances rich mobile experiences for people outside of work
through integration with Windows Live Mail, Windows Live Messenger, Live Search
and Windows Live Spaces. Windows Mobile 6 was the first mobile device platform
to offer HTML E-Mail support allowing people to receive, view and compose E-Mail
in HTML format.
It was an evening full of stars and surprises, with a special guest
appearance by legendary actor, director and Sundance Institute Founder and
President, Robert Redford, introducing the GSMA's Mobile Entertainment Awards
ahead of his keynote speech at the Mobile World Congress today.
