Default T-Mobile Announces Pocket PC 2003 Upgrade To Be Available Soon

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://www.t-mobile.com/promos/ppc2003/default.asp' target='_blank'>http://www.t-mobile.com/promos/ppc2003/default.asp</a><br /><br /></div>T-Mobile has put up a page detailing their plan for releasing a Pocket PC 2003 upgrade. It's not available yet, but the page discusses some of the new and upcoming features. Interesting tidbits include:
  • <li> Always On enables real-time, over-the-air access to new e-mail, calendar appointments, or contacts from MS Exchange 2003 Server<br /><li> View Microsoft PowerPoint and PDF files (looks like they've bundled a viewing program; I'm not sure which)
<img src="http://www.pocketpcthoughts.com/images/web/2003/parekh-20031028-TMobilePPC2003.jpg" /><br /><br />The rest look like standard WM2003 features, but overall it'll be a welcome upgrade. We'll keep you posted when we have more details.

The XDA II bundles ClearVue PDF and PowerPoint viewers. It also has the always on feature. I would hazard a guess that the T-mobile upgrade shares the XDA II features.

I have different "pre-release" versions of their WM2003, being the latest one 4.00.21 (and I think this is their final version), yeah, as Duncan said, ClearVue Presentation, and ClearVue PDF are included in the ROM, also, a Web service called Synchrologic, which I assume is to get access directly to calendar, email and contacts from work emails.

You can check out the ROM in my website:

Default Always on?

Does anyone know if the "always on" feature will be like the RIM Blackberry where email gets pushed to the T-mo?

Thanks,
Paul

Default Always on - should be standard on all PPC Phones

I hope this becomes a standard for all PPC phones. What I'd love to have is something around the form factor of the 2210, with built-in CF and SD, and always on GPRS. I use bluetooth to go online with my 2210 all the time, it would be really great if the 2210 could gimme a quick beep when I have a new message. Speaking of notification, anyone know whether it's common for PPC phones to have a vibrating ring type feature?

yeah, pretty much so, you set up your Exchange Server or even your POP server to check your email every X min. and at the moment you get an email it will pop a window with new email, pretty cool.
