At the end of the month, Microsoft prepares to announce the next version
of its new operating system for handheld devices. The Redmond software giant
will launch Pocket PC 2003 - codenamed Ozone.
The OS is not designed as a major improvement of Pocket PC 2002, but
would include new features, such as the internal support for the wireless
Wi-Fi and Bluetooth technologies. The major changes are expected in the
future version of the operating system, code named Magneto, scheduled
for launching in 2004.
Starting with Magneto, enhanced telephony features are expected, such
as a much more intuitive call dialling and a far improved flexibility,
so that it would be used for a much wider device range.
