Microsoft Launches Windows Mobile 5.0

Mobiles and handhelds are hot, hot, hot and Microsoft is making sure that it’s new mobile operating system, Windows Mobile 5, sizzles with the rest of the big players in the red hot PDA and Smartphone market place.

Microsoft launched its next generation Windows Mobile platform as it attempts to elevate its standing in the mobile space and tread into lucrative niche markets dominated by RIM’s Blackberry and Apple’s iPod.

The platform, developed under the code name “Magneto,” is the successor to Windows Mobile 2003 and offers more stability and reliability, as well as rich access to office applications and multimedia data from Windows-based handhelds, Gates said.
