Windows Phone

With Windows Mobile 6.5 being commercially available from October 6th 2009 what does Windows Mobile 6.5 bring to the table in the eyes of Microsoft?

“A Windows phone gives people a single phone that works for their whole life, keeping them connected to the people and information they care most about by harnessing the power of the PC, phone and Web,” according to Todd Peters, corporate vice president of the Mobile Communications Marketing Group at Microsoft.

New windows phones will deliver:

  • New customer experiences through an improved, easy-to-use user interface
  • Better browsing capabilities and access to valuable services,
  • Direct link to Windows Marketplace for Mobile and Microsoft My Phone.

Any Windows Mobile or smartphone fan/user will know that for a long time Windows Mobile has been able to do most things…maybe not in the most logical way, but mostly everything you need to do is possible.  Windows Phones from now on are all about doing all this but in a more logical and intuitive way.

Windows phones are ideal devices for work and play, giving you the confidence to get things done with mobile versions of the software they recognize and expect from their PCs.

The redesigned Internet Explorer Mobile browser includes a new engine and built-in Adobe Flash Lite support for better rendering and completion of tasks, so it’s easy to do more from a phone, such as check in for a flight, get directions or pay bills while on the go.

Microsoft Office Outlook Mobile delivers a familiar, consistent e-mail experience across the PC, phone and browser, while Microsoft Office Mobile allows you to open and edit Word, Excel and PowerPoint documents right from their phone.

Windows Live on the phones, allow you to keep track of friends in one place, no matter which social networking sites they belong to — Facebook, Twitter or MySpace Windows Live.

New Windows Phones will debut two new powerful mobile services so that the information, contacts and applications you want are always at your fingertips.

A wide variety of approved and certified applications will be available for direct download to Windows phones from Windows Marketplace for Mobile, and an easy return policy lets customers buy with confidence.

The free My Phone service allows you to automatically back up and sync photos, music, contacts and text messages from your phone to the Web, making it easy to access and manage them from your phone or PC or restore the information in the event of a lost phone.

We will bring more information on the new Windows Phones, the functionality and features over the coming weeks.
