Windows Mobile 5.0 is here
Microsoft does not surrender to the domain of Symbian in the mobile phone operating systems market and just introduced Windows Mobile 5.0. This new version arrives full of novelties with the intention of being able to control from Windows Mobile the most important innovations that cell phones offer today. Thus we find, among other features, support for push to talk, support for hard drives, Windows Media Player 10.0 Mobile, support for 3G and Wi-Fi networks, improvements in mail such as Hotmail from Outlook Mobile and greater integration with the Office package : Word Mobile now supports tables and images and just like Excel Mobile can modify documents from the phone itself, to which must be added the star appearance of PowerPoint, but only to view presentations, not to modify them. Undoubtedly an important milestone and significant improvements (many already present in Symbian) that can give Microsoft a boost with the hitherto omnipotent Symbian. Windows Mobile 2005 offers interesting features for the corporate market, such as office automation and security improvements such as virtual private network support, uniting the multimedia and connectivity that a "non-professional" user may want. It only remains to see it in action to be able to assess usability and stability, soon the first compatible terminals.
