Default Microsoft Announces Windows Mobile 5

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://www.microsoft.com/presspass/press/2005/may05/05-10WindowsMobile5PR.asp' target='_blank'>http://www.microsoft.com/presspass/...wsMobile5PR.asp</a><br /><br /></div>"In a packed hall of developers and industry partners at Microsoft® Mobile &amp; Embedded DevCon 2005, Microsoft Corp.'s annual mobile and embedded developers conference, Bill Gates, chairman and chief software architect of Microsoft, announced the release to manufacturing (RTM) of Windows Mobile (TM) 5.0. This new version of the Windows Mobile software platform delivers on partner requests, including more platform flexibility to customize devices and solutions; productivity enhancements that include updated Microsoft Office software and persistent memory storage for more efficient data management; and a powerful multimedia experience with Windows Media® Player 10 Mobile and support for hard drives.<br /><br />Just five years ago, the first Windows Mobile-based Pocket PCs shipped from three hardware partners. Today 40 device-makers are shipping innovative Windows Mobile-based products with 68 mobile operators in 48 countries. These hardware and mobile operator partners have contributed to Windows Mobile revenue growth of 31 percent from 2003 to 2004 and phone license sales more than double those of the previous year."<br /><br /><img src="http://i.microsoft.com/h/en-us/i/WinMobile50_4_10.jpg" /><br /><br />It's here, it's official: Windows Mobile 5, formerly known as Magneto, has been announced at MEDC. Lots to come today, so stay tuned!
