Also can people with Wm 5.0 devices confirm that it mounts as mass storage without activesync being installed?

AS 4.0 is brand new, but only for WM5 devices. For 03/02, its not much different.

As for the SDK, I have no idea - I'm sure MS will post it on MSDN or something soon.

Sounds like Summer/Fall (Q3-ish) basic on HTC's earlier press release. Probably about the same time HP and Dell release updates.

There are going to be so many threads on 5.0; maybe this has already been answered:

Are office documents used in native file format now, or are they still converted by ActiveSync? (implications for the previous question about mounting as mass storage).

Interesting how the Office apps are all "Mobile" now, but "Pocket" MSN lives on,

Yes, I believe that is in place for both Word and Excel. PowerPoint does not do any file modifications, so things would be fine there.

Traditionally it takes about 3 months after RTM for new devices to be out.

Things like USB 2.0 and "Persistent memory storage" are compelling.
I share your sentiments. I just auctioned off my X50v and I find myself regretting that decision already. :dilemma: What I really find compelling would be a Pocket PC-ish Smartphone with a VGA display. Just having WM5 on an X50v doesn't sound too terribly compelling to me. Hardware that is designed from the ground up to exploit the next WinMobile is more to my liking.

Yep, we'll probably be seeing new hardware in time for the Back-to-school season.

If I'm not getting an upgrade to WM5.0 atleast I hope to get a better ActiveSync.

You will be able to get it, but you won't really have any new features unless you have a Windows Mobile 5 devices. But I am running it with Windows Mobile 2003 SE devices and it works fine.

That stinks. All I want is better category filtering. :roll:
