"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."
"It will have to be to woo customers away from Palm
Computing's products. PocketPC, formerly known as Palm-size
PC, has been a distant second to Palm Computing's Palm line of
handheld devices since its introduction in 1998 as Palm PC."
