What's New in Windows Mobile 5.0?
Pages: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5


The Contacts application in Windows Mobile 5.0 has been enhanced (see Figure 8). Icons are now displayed next to a person's particulars. Also, you can now attach a photo to a contact (which can be done easily if your Pocket PC has a built-in camera). If your Pocket PC phone edition device supports Caller ID, the photo of the person will be displayed every time he or she calls. Also, the photo will be displayed whenever an email from him or her arrives.

The features just discussed are also supported in the Smartphone (see Figure 9).

Word Mobile

Pocket Word is now known as Word Mobile (see Figure 10). In fact, Microsoft has dropped the "Pocket" name from most of its applications (see examples in the next few sections).

One improvement to Word Mobile is its ability to display inline images. Figure 11 shows a word document received via Hotmail and then opened using Word Mobile. Instead of displaying a box with a cross in it (as in Pocket Word in Windows Mobile 2003), it displays the inline image.
