The new version of "Pocket PC'' software carries the name Windows Mobile 2003 to help link it with the company's Windows operating system, said Ed Suwanjindar, product manager with Microsoft's Mobility Group.
The software can automatically detect and connect devices to the Internet if there is a wireless WiFi network in place. Many coffee shops, copy centres and other locations are installing such networks. The software also includes improved e-mail and calendar capabilities, along with digital photo editing and display software.
Hewlett-Packard Co. will introduce four models with the new software, including the slimmest and most inexpensive iPAQ yet. The iPAQ h1940 is 4.46 inches (11.33 centimetres) by 2.75 inches (7 centimetres) by half an inch (1.27 centimetres) and costs $299. It has Bluetooth built-in as well as an SD-card expansion slot.
The other three new models are about the size of their predecessors and priced at $399, $549 and $649.
Gateway and JVC also were expected to make handhelds running Microsoft's software. AP
