Microsoft Updates Windows Mobile to 6.1
Apr 1, 2008, 12:08 PM by Eric M. Zeman
Microsoft announced an update to its Windows Mobile platform, and is calling the new version 6.1. It is not a complete overhaul of the platform, but does offer a number of upgrades. Users will be able to use new tools--the Getting Started Center--to set their smartphone up faster, including easier email account configuration. Windows Mobile 6.1 adds threaded messaging to make organizing SMS conversions easier. It also brings in a new version of Internet Explorer Mobile that will include Adobe Flash and Microsoft's own Silverlight technology for improved web browsing. Users will be able to zoom in and out of web pages to better see pictures or text. The new software won't be available to phone manufacturers until the third quarter, and Microsoft expects to see phones using it by the end of the year.
