"Microsoft on Wednesday announced it would launch its revamped
Pocket PC at New York City's Grand Central Station this coming
April 19. The launch will mark the third attempt by the
software giant to perfect its troubled Windows CE operating
"...Phil Holden, the group product manager for Windows CE,
admitted that Microsoft is currently trailing Palm for market share
in the handheld computing arena. Holden said that the re-launch of
the Pocket PC, which will be manufactured by companies such as
Casio, Compaq, and Hewlett-Packard, is an opportunity for Microsoft
to re-establish itself in the handheld market."
"New features to look for in upcoming versions of the Pocket PC
will include an e-book reader, an MP3 music player, video
capabilities, and a application Holden called a "transcriber",
which identifies a user's handwriting when etched into the unit,
converting it to text."
