Windows Mobile 6.0
Today we are getting our readers to know the new mobile operatingsystem by Microsoft codenamed ?Windows Mobile Crossbow?. The mostprobable title for the commercial edition, though, is ?Windows Mobile6.0?, but it is the thing to remain veiled until an officialannouncement is made. Beginning from the previous version of WindowsMobile, the company has put into practice a new approach to indexing,so that now codenames are replaced by numbers, like ?5.0?, ?6.0? etc.Interestingly, the second digit in the index hasn?t been called for upuntil now, in other words, we haven?t seen Windows Mobile 5.2 or 5.3yet, since all intermediate updates and patch-works have beenintroduced within various versions of AKU (Adaptation Kit Update)update packs.
Nevertheless, the brand-new operating system could be called?Windows Mobile 5.0 Second Edition? for it lacks tons of all-newfeatures and total system revamp as in the case of Windows Mobile 5.0.The most considerable upgrades are coming up in the next version, beingdeveloped under the codename of ?Windows Mobile Photon? scheduled forrelease in two years time at best. Being under the pressure of launchesof new products in its software range, including MS Windows Vista, MSOffice 2007, MS Exchange 2007, Microsoft had no other choice butrelease an updated version of Windows Mobile. Most of Windows Mobile6.0?s new functions are aimed at providing support for what MS Exchange2007 brings to the table. Here with Crossbow we still have the samedivision - WM for Pocket PC and WM for Smartphone, which will fade awayonly in WM Photon
