Microsoft Windows Mobile group just released a 61 pages, 12 MB sized PDF file
for its partners which explains all the Windows Mobile 6 changes and
enhancements in a granularity I haven't seen before.
Windows Mobile 6, which was
announced during the 3GSM World Congress in February this year, represents
the next major release of Windows Mobile platform after Windows Mobile 5.0.
Windows Mobile 6 delivers advanced mobile communications, increased mobile
productivity and integrated mobile business performance with a consistent and
familiar Microsoft software experience.
Windows Mobile 6 introduces a new degree of efficiency and fidelity to
Microsoft Office Outlook Mobile, delivering a more powerful mobile
communications experience to the user. Only Windows Mobile offers the genuine
mobile Microsoft Office Outlook experience, helping to provide more efficient
management of E-Mail. Flexible connections and new account setup are designed to
improve the E-Mail setup experience. Users have faster access to contacts;
higher fidelity messages help to increase readability and increased protection
of confidential messages and documents helps provide security. Windows Mobile 6
also offers more flexible connections to the desktop. Windows Live offers a rich
experience for Windows Mobile 6 users.
Windows Mobile 6 provides an increased level of productivity by helping users
reach deeper into available information where they previously may have had no
access when mobile. Greater control and visibility of Outlook Mobile Calendar
information helps users better manage their day. Along with greater
collaboration and operability with Microsoft Exchange Server, Microsoft Office
SharePoint Servers and file shares, the new Microsoft Office Mobile application
suite improves access to information while mobile. With Windows Mobile 6, users
have access to information through the Windows Mobile experience, while
enhancements to Microsoft Internet Explorer Mobile and Windows Live Search are
designed to improve the online experience.
Windows Mobile 6 delivers increased device control and security features and
greater operability with Exchange Server and other productivity tools to help
businesses efficiently deploy, manage and help secure Windows Mobile solutions.
Windows Mobile 6 offers simplified administration, increased monitoring and
flexible policy management with Exchange Server 2007; increased device control
and security features enhance integrated mobile business performance. Combined
with new in-ROM capabilities for Line-of-Business (LOB) applications, Windows
Mobile 6 provides the highest standard for LOB application development and
deployment. Additionally, Windows Mobile 6 provides mobile operators with new
business solution improvements in device management, portal experiences, mobile
e-commerce and IP telephony.
