Pocket PC 2003 released

Microsoft released the latest version of their handheld operating system, Pocket PC 2003. It will be interesting to see if this is just a bug-fix or a true new release with new features. A couple of areas that needed fixing were the WiFi and Bluetooth support and I’m reading that is handled in this release.

I used to be an old Palm guy, back in the day. And then my brother gave me Compaq Ipaq and I never looked back. The usability at that time was just vastly superior that the competing Palm product. I owned several versions of the Compaq Ipaq’s and Toshiba’s Pocket PC PDA of the last few years and just can’t see myself going back to Palm.

Linux is also becoming a contendar in the hand-held space and I wonder if the new Zaurus’sare going to be able to make a dent in the enterprise space.
