Pocket PC Magazine Renamed Smartphone & Pocket PC
Posted on 18-Aug-2005 09:07 | Tags Filed under: News



The publication, originally launched in 1997 by Thaddeus Computing as Handheld PC Magazine, was created to help users get the most out of Microsoft Windows CE-based handheld computers. In 2000 the magazine changed its name to Pocket PC to reflect Microsoft’s new direction for Windows CE-based handhelds.

Now once again in 2005, because of projections for explosive Smartphone growth, a major market shift has taken place. The newest incarnation of the Windows CE-based handheld operating system called Windows Mobile 5 provides PDAs and Smartphones a similar look and functionality. The company has decided to change the magazine's name again, and starting with the 2006 Buyer’s Guide on newsstands in November, Pocket PC becomes Smartphone & Pocket PC.

Publisher and Executive Editor, Hal Goldstein says “the change of name reflects the evolution of the market and of the Windows Mobile operating system. The new name, Smartphone & Pocket PC, more accurately reflects the editorial content and direction of the magazine. The tagline for Pocket PC was ‘For users of Windows Mobile Smartphones & PDAs.’ The new tagline for Smartphone & Pocket PC will now simply be ‘For users of Windows Mobile’.”

Published bi-monthly, Smartphone & Pocket PC and its bonus Buyer’s Guide will continue to focus on all things Windows Mobile. Editorial includes device and software reviews, tips and how-tos, profiles of individual users, and an Enterprise section focused on business solutions. PocketPCmag.com will continue to compliment the magazine with its reference library of past magazine articles, a 3500 product Encyclopedia of Software and Accessories, active support forums, and regularly updated links to the best Windows Mobile sites.
