Windows Mobile Turns 6.0
Feb 7, 2007, 7:17 PM by (staff)
Microsoft will unveil the next generation of its mobile operating system next Monday at 3GSM. Windows Mobile 6 seeks to bring the separate Smartphone and Pocket PC platforms together, while making both platforms faster and easier to use. To emphasize this, Smartphone will now be called Standard edition while Pocket PC will be known as Professional edition. Both platforms will have a full version of mobile Office including Word, Excel and Powerpoint, and each will inherit features from the other; for instance Professional edition will finally get smart dialing from the home screen. Both versions feature a tight integration with Windows Live services, and improvements like support for HTML formatted email, links to recent calls and messages in the contact application and new calendar views. A number of devices running the new OS are expected to be announced next week as well.

Is WM6 really an upgrade?
I can't help but feel that this will only be an incremental upgrade and should have been dubbed, Windows Mobile 5SE. It sure does not sound like a full upgrade version and WM5 has only been out for a somewhat short time now.
More of a marketing ploy by renaming the 3 versions than a real upgrade. After reviewing an article on CNET http://crave.cnet.com/8301-1_105-9685249-1.ht ml?tag=cnetfd.mt
The descriptions and screen shots don't show much
that we don't have now in version 5 except for this new Windows Live and the ability to direct dial a number from the Today screen ...
