Microsoft Revamps Pocket PC OS

Microsoft’s latest version of their Pocket PC operating system apparently has very little new to offer other than the name. It’s gone from the Pocket PC OS to the Windows Mobile OS, in an attempt to use the Windows name for branding purposes. They’re hoping to use the brand recognition to fight of Symbian and other competitors. Of course, this operating system seems to go through a name change every few years. Wasn’t it just Windows CE a few years ago?
