T-Mobile update for Pocket PC Phone Edition officialy supported now
T-Mobile USA is giving its Pocket PC Phone Edition users a free software upgrade to Windows Mobile 2003 software from Microsoft.

The company released he update before, but due to problems with some product versions had to remove the downloads. A press release makes it official now, and free.

At a value of US$30, the new software offers customers a richer phone experience, easier connectivity to e-mail, enhanced messaging services and new multimedia functionality including the ability to play MP3 files in digital sound quality. The software is available to download for free until 30 June 2004.

With the new software, customers can easily configure access to their Web-based e-mail service with preloaded links to help simplify the addressing options to get their work and personal POP3 e-mail wirelessly through Pocket Inbox. In addition, the new software enables an "always-on" wireless data connection that dramatically improves application startup and usage.

Together with the Windows Mobile 2003 software upgrade, customers will receive additional applications that will enable them to view PowerPoint and PDF attachments right on their handheld, and in the same vibrant colors they're used to seeing on their computer.

The copany points these improvements in the new version:

  • Call Muting. The ability to mute a call in progress without turning off other system sounds
  • Phone Mute and Volume Control. New dual volume control separates the phone's ringer volume and the Pocket PC's system volume so users can choose the best level for each
  • Improved SMS Integration. Inbox will look for the phone number on an incoming short message service (SMS) message in the Contacts database and display the sender's name if there is a match. An option to call back the sender of an SMS has been added to the SMS notification screen and to Inbox. The SMS account in Inbox is now available when the radio is offline.
  • Quick Contacts Search. Users can find key contacts quickly by typing any portion of a first or last name.
  • Windows Media Player 9. The phone supports Windows Media Audio and Video 9 Series, with improved playlist management and support for Windows XP Plus! Photo Story.
