As announced before, today Microsoft provided a preview to its latest Windows Mobile version, now called Windows Mobile Second Edition and I'm happy to give you - who are not able to attend the MDC in San Francisco - a sneak preview of what you can expect.
Please keep in mind that Windows Mobile 2003 Second Edition isn't a complete new OS but also based on Windows CE.Net 4.x; therefore you will not find so many new features except the display improvements you can see here:

Today Screen

Phone Dialer for Phone Edition

Screen Orientation

Font Size

Font Size used for Inbox

The screenshots above were taken from a real device, not from a Developer Kit; however - today it's too early to say which devices will be upgradeable and which won't.
BTW: now we know why we've never seen the Motorola MPx Phone Edition with a working/running screen... ;-)
However, while I've assigned a button to rotate the screen by hand for the screenshots above, Motorola already confirmed me, that the MPx will do the portrait/landscape stuff itself, depending on how you open the screen.

Cheers ~ Arne
