Not that HP is playing the same role anymore it used to play in the very early Pocket PC days, during the Mobile World Congress HP announced plans to support the Microsoft Windows Mobile 6.5 operating system on future smartphone devices. While it wasn't unveiled yet what future smartphones HP has in mind it was confirmed by HP that Windows Mobile 6.5 on HP smartphones will offer key enhancements to business productivity, personal messaging and mobile Internet capabilities, making it even easier for mobile customers to communicate and to manage critical business and personal information. With its new visual appeal, enhanced mobile Internet experience and greater personalization capabilities, the new operating system boosts the opportunities for Windows-based smartphones in broader market segments.

The refreshed look of the new operating system offers a more interactive touch experience that responds to tapping, flicking and panning on-screen movements. The mobile Internet experience is improved with browser enhancements and Rich Internet Application (RIA) support that allows users to add new dynamic applications on the home screen.

Additionally, with Windows Mobile 6.5, customers will have new ways to personalize their smartphones including new themes, applications and ring tones, and by using personal photos as photo contact cards and for the home screen background.

Customers can also transfer music and video to their smartphones with Windows Media Player and select an array of widgets for use on their home screens. Customers will enjoy staying up to date with a rich and more-efficient messaging experience. HP smartphones with Windows Mobile 6.5 will automatically discover Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 settings for company E-Mail. A unified E-Mail inbox allows customers to see "text" or Short Messaging Service (SMS) messages and conveniently playback their voicemail. SMS messages can also be archived on an Exchange Server to safeguard information for later reference.

No word yet if HP also plans to release Windows Mobile 6.5 upgrades for its current Windows Mobile 6.1 smartphones but it's unlikely since HP hasn't released Windows Mobile upgrades for years.

Cheers ~ Arne
