"Microsoft Corp. (Nasdaq: MSFT) is preparing an April launch of, and a new suite of applications for, its PocketPC. The Redmond, Wash., software maker hopes that consumers will find PocketPC's user interface and application software, code-named Rapier, an easier-to-use successor to its Palm-size PC."

"PocketPCs will offer new hardware designs from a number of vendors, along with the new user interface and applications such as Pocket Explorer and Pocket Word. The device's underlying operating system will be Microsoft's Windows CE."
