New Generation Of Pocket PCs On Their Way

Unlike previous versions, Windows Mobile SE offers built-in support for 640-by-480-pixel (VGA) displays, and several companies are expected to release new models that include screens with this resolution.

In addition, the Second Edition is the first version of this operating system that allows users to easily switch the screen between portrait and landscape modes. This opens up the possibility of Pocket PCs that use a clamshell design, with the screen on one side and a keyboard on the other. Motorola has already announced a model that will use this configuration, and at least one other company is expected to do so in the near future.
