Responding to increasing pressure from other mobile phone platforms, Microsoft today updated versions of Windows Mobile and Internet Explorer Mobile.
The software giant said it also will make its new enterprise device management software available to all medium-size and large businesses.
The updated IE Mobile browser will support Adobe Flash and Microsoft's Silverlight so that Windows Mobile users will be able to view multimedia Internet applications in their browsers.
Microsoft Windows Mobile And IE Mobile Updated [washingtonpost.com]
I'm glad to see Windows Mobile and IE Mobile finally updated. One reason I canned my Treo for an iPhone is because windows mobile was so stale.
Maybe more like this
"Proper" Flash "performs too slow to be useful," on the iPhone, Jobs warned. "There's this missing product in the middle. It just doesn't exist," he explained. Apple's boss insisted Apple maintains a good relationship with Adobe all the same.
Maybe there will be a cutdown version once v2.0 in announced in June.
I wonder what the speed of these Windows mobile phones are like if you have Silverlight open in one tab and Flash in the other, they have to sap the memory and CPU. I can notice the effect of just Flash on my desktop.
