Finally, after the download and installation of the Microsoft Windows Mobile Device Center was possible with a Registry hack only, Microsoft yesterday released Microsoft Windows Mobile Device Center Beta 3 for Windows Vista - together with yesterday's Windows Vista RC2 release. And, beside being available, the WMDC (which replaces ActiveSync on Windows Vista PCs) finally also supports Windows Mobile 2003 and 2003 Second Edition Pocket PCs and Smartphones; the previous versions only supported Windows Mobile 5.0 devices.
The Microsoft Windows Mobile Device Center Beta enables you to set up new partnerships, synchronize content and manage music, pictures and video with any Windows Mobile 2003 or Windows Mobile 5.0 powered device. The Windows Mobile Device Center Beta 3 is only supported on Windows Vista RC1 and above but not on previous Windows Vista Betas.

The Windows Mobile Device Center Beta combines an efficient business-data synchronization platform with a compelling user experience. Windows Mobile Device Center Beta 3 helps you to quickly set up new partnerships, synchronize business-critical information such as E-Mail, contacts and calendar appointments and easily manage your synchronization settings.
The Windows Mobile Device Center Beta 3 simplifies managing media between your Windows Mobile powered device and your desktop PC. With the picture acquisition wizard, you can easily tag and transfer all of the pictures from your Windows Mobile powered device to your desktop PC's Windows Photo Gallery. Microsoft Windows Media Player helps you keep the music on your Windows Mobile powered device up-to-date.

Features include:

  • Streamlined setup - A simplified new partnership wizard and improved partnership management
  • Robust synchronization - Synchronization of business-critical data such as E-Mail, calendars, contacts, tasks, favorites and files
  • Photo management - Picture management helps you detect new photos on your Windows Mobile powered device, tag and import them to the Windows Vista Photo Gallery
  • Media synchronization – Use Microsoft Windows Media Player to synchronize and shuffle music files on your device
  • File browsing - A new device browsing experience enables you more quickly browse files and folders and open documents on your device directly from your PC
  • Enhanced user interface – A simple and compelling user interface helps you to quickly access critical tasks and configure your device

The Windows Mobile Device Center Beta is now compatible with Windows Mobile 2003 and Windows Mobile 5.0 devices and is currently only available as a standalone installer via www.microsoft.com. Future versions will be also distributed through Windows Update.
Windows Mobile Device Center Beta is currently available in English only and will soon be available in English, Japanese, German, French and Spanish also.

Cheers ~ Arne
