Pocket PC OS 2003 released
Although still two or three weeks away (in New Zealand), the new version of Microsoft's Pocket PC OS, now branded as Windows Mobile 2003, was released today. Brighthand posted reviews on the new HP H2210and the Toshiba E355 models.

It's just a shame that the New Zealand and Australian subsidiaries of HP and others will take their time to release updated versions of their products.
