Microsoft to put Office in Win Mobile 6

Some attention for Windows Mobile 6, codename crossbow. This article includes a few of the features. Be sure to follow the press announcements this week coming from 3GSM … Hopefully I will be able to upgrade soon so I can show you all the new developments …

… For business users who want Microsoft Office on their cell phones, Windows Mobile 6, the upcoming version of Redmond’s mobile operating system to be unveiled next week, will be a must-have upgrade.

Mobile 6 comes with mobile versions of Outlook, Word, Excel and PowerPoint. …

…  According to John Starkwether, a product manager in the Mobile and Embedded Devices Division at Microsoft, Office is part of the package. Starkwether conjectured that if a vendor really wants to exclude Office from the operating system, an accommodation might be possible….

Surely having the Office viewers is a must have. Glad to see they are in …

 

… Additional upgrades to the mobile OS include Microsoft’s Direct Push Technology with automatic synchronization of Outlook calendars, tasks, and contacts using Exchange Server.

For security and management, Mobile 6 will also give mobile network managers the capability of remotely wiping out all data from a device should it be lost or stolen. Other security features include certificate options and storage card encryption. …

A lot if not all features come ofcourse in combination with Exchange (2003 SP2 / 2007)

… Business users will also be pleased with the inclusion of mobile versions of the .Net Compact Framework and SQL Server in order to access a company’s standard line of business applications remotely. …

Referring back to my post on Enterprise Mobility earlier today. Microsoft is uniquely positioned having the application platform and database on multiple / all different formfactors.

… E-mail viewing will be easier on the eye with formatting, tables, and pictures viewable as originally generated.

One-click options for e-mail, such as “reply all”, moving a message to a subfolder and “delete” have been added to accommodate the restricted functionality of a small device. … 

Again, I hope to show you all new stuff in the near future

… Windows Live will integrate mail, messenger, search, contacts, and spaces. …

Very cool as well seeing a lot of Windows Live applications / services now natively supported on Windows Mobile.
