An operating system to take on the road: MS Pocket PC 2002

Microsoft's Pocket PC operating system for PDAs addresses some of the most-requested fixes and a few new features.

Microsoft's Pocket PC operating system for PDAs addresses some of the most-requested fixes and a few new features.
Pocket PC 2002 will start shipping in October, and will debut on the HP's Jornada 565, and Compaq iPAQ.

The most apparent change is that new OS now looks like Windows XP. This means new icons, alerts that bubble atop your current application, and a skinnable desktop. More effective memory management is achieved by the operating system monitoring RAM usage and closing idle applications.

It includes a suite of office and entertainment applications. While Pocket Word and Excel come bundled in the OS, it still lacks PowerPoint. You'll also get a few more cool applications. For instance, the bundled MSN Messenger works just like the desktop version. It also includes Windows Media Player 8, which now supports streaming video.

The OS also adds virtual private network access support for connecting to an intranet. Microsoft claims to have made it easier to configure connection settings, but the simplest way to access the Internet remains dropping your PDA into its cradle. The OS also improves as a personal organizer, especially if you use Outlook on a Windows PC. Overall, Pocket PC beats Palm hands down when it comes to working seamlessly with Outlook.
