    In addition to Solitaire, Windows Mobile 2003 software offers “Jawbreaker,” a single-player graphical game. Earlier versions of it were known as “Bubblets.”

    Adding vs. integrating: Adding wireless capabilities is fine, but integrating them is better. We’ll point out how this integration plays out as we walk through the new features of Windows Mobile 2003 software.
    Integrated Wireless: Bringing It All Together

    Telephony on Windows Mobile 2003 software is more than just a phone application running on a PDA: It is a fully integrated wireless hardware and software experience designed to make sure the phone integrates seamlessly with the Pocket PC applications. Windows Mobile 2003 software combines a powerful PDA with high-end mobile phone functionality, including WAV, Microsoft Windows Media 9 Audio (WMA), and MiDi ring tones, a call log, call notifications and short messaging service (SMS) messaging.
    In addition, Windows Mobile 2003-based Pocket PCs provide a superior wireless data experience, making existing features such as e-mail, MSN Messenger and Pocket Internet Explorer better. Microsoft has integrated wireless capability throughout the device to “light up” existing features and extend the power of the platform.

    A Great Phone

    GSM or CDMA? Windows Mobile-based Pocket PCs with integrated voice and data capabilities are available for both GSM/GPRS and CDMA networks.
    On hardware that supports integrated voice and data capabilities, Windows Mobile-based Pocket PCs are mobile phones for both GSM/GPRS and CDMA networks with all the features users expect from a high-end mobile phone, including an easily accessible phone dialer, speed dialing, a speaker phone, SMS and Web access. New phone features in Windows Mobile 2003-based Pocket PCs include separate volume controls for phone and PDA notifications, Call Barring and Call Forwarding, richer ring tones, and a mute button.
    Windows Mobile 2003 software utilizes the power of the PDA software to expand and enhance the phone capabilities of a device. For example, the dialer’s caller ID takes advantage of Pocket PC’s seamless integration with the Outlook messaging and collaboration client by displaying a contact’s name rather than a phone number if the number exists in the Contact list. Also, the phone can be personalized by incorporating custom ring tones made from any WAV, WMA or MiDi file.

    mart, Easy Connectivity

    Windows Mobile 2003 software for Pocket PCs was designed to make it easier than ever to connect to a variety of wireless networks and to manage connectivity intelligently. For example, voice calls are given priority over data calls so conversations are not dropped and urgent calls are not missed. At the same time, data is accessible on the device thanks to the multithreaded nature of the underlying operating system. Smart, persistent 2.5G data connections in Windows Mobile 2003 allow users to turn off their device screen but maintain a GSM or CDMA connection.
    Windows Mobile-based Pocket PCs with integrated voice and data capabilities are available from a number of device manufacturers and mobile operators. Voice and wireless data services require a service plan, and services offered may vary by provider. The latest information can be found at http://www.microsoft.com/windowsmobile/.
