This guide introduces Microsoft® Windows MobileTM 2003 Second Edition software for Smartphones, which opens a new chapter in mobile phone technology by combining the best of mobile voice and data communications with the best of personal information management software.

Wireless connectivity is becoming more widely available, and no single device can ever meet the needs of all users. Everyone faces a different set of priorities and scenarios every day. Business and personal users communicate remotely through different combinations of voice, e-mail, instant messaging, short message service (SMS), online forums and even video. And when they leave their home or office, they might carry several devices to stay connected to people and information they count on. With that in mind, Microsoft has included support for the .NET Compact Framework in Windows Mobile 2003 software for Smartphones, which enables a new era of mobile XML-based Web services.
Windows Mobile software also provides an open platform upon which independent software vendors can develop a variety of consumer and enterprise-oriented applications. And new support for IPv6, the newest version of Internet Protocol (IP), allows the Windows Mobile software to take advantage of the most current Internet and Web-based information and services while ensuring seamless integration with desktop applications. The localization features of Windows Mobile software support many languages and make this a compelling device for mobile operators and developers alike.
Note: Cellular voice and data plans are required for Internet and phone access. Some features may vary based on the mobile operator. See device manufacturer and mobile operator for details.
