Highlights:

  • HTML-formatted e-mails from POP, IMAP, and Exchange Server 2007
  • Full integration with Windows Live (Search, Mail, Space, Messenger), including a Windows Mobile-based client
  • Automatic synchronization of Outlook calendars and contacts through Exchange Server due to the inclusion of Direct Push on all Windows Mobile 6 devices
  • New Microsoft Office Mobile, which allows users to view and even edit documents on the device while retaining formatting, including tables and images
  • 30% improvement in speed for Internet Explorer Mobile
  • Faster and easier set up of the device
  • Easy syncing of pictures, music, etc., from Windows Vista-powered PCs to the device

  • Improved security, including remote management and wiping of a device and protected/encrypted content
