Software and products compatible with Windows Mobile 2003 Second Edition
The new Windows Mobile 2003 Second Edition OS was just introduced, and a few companies have already announced new versions (or even new products) using the new features available on this OS. The new OS version was announced during the Mobile Developers Conference in San Francisco.

The most sought after feature is probably the landscape orientation. This new OS feature gives the user the chance to rotate the display and present screen content in either landscape or portrait orientation. Users can define the rotation for left or right hand users (the screen's content rotates one way or another), without the need of a soft reset.

Of course the first company to confirm changes in its software was Microsoft itself. We have an article with a list of changes implemented on Pocket Internet Explorer.

Ilium Software announced that all of Ilium Software's mobile applications, including eWallet, FreeWallet, ListPro, DockWare, Keep Track and Recordian will support this new version of the Windows Mobile software.

Web Information Solutions, developers of Pocket Informant is also supporting the new OS structure, starting from Pocket Informant 5.2.

Another company to bring the same kind of support was PhatWare. The company says that Calligrapher, PhatNotes, and PhatSpell, a multi-lingual spell checking utility, will soon support Windows Mobile 2003 Second Edition as well.

Developer One also announced an updated version of its program Agenda Fusion.

Cerience has just released its RepliGo 2.0 software, and confirms that this new version is compatible with Windows Mobile 2003 Second Edition.

In the hardware front, Motorola confirmed that the upcoming Motorola MPx, a Windows Mobile Pocket PC Phone Edition handheld will use the new OS version. Since Microsoft says that this OS will be available in new devices from September 2004, we believe the Motorola MPx will be launched around this time. This Pocket PC comes in a hinged design, allowing users to use it as a clamshell phone, or as a PDA with full QWERTY keyboard.
