Windows Mobile 6 adds a lot of new features, most of them tied to Microsoft server software like Exchange or SharePoint. I'm especially interested in the AJAX support in Internet Explorer Mobile and I'm also hoping for more robust Bluetooth support and improved overall stability.
The upgrade procedure does seem a little bit cumbersome though:
- "The upgrade will erase any data stored on the device. Please back up your data first before upgrading your device." So I'll have to figure out what my important data is and how to get it off the device.
- "The update will take up to 30 minutes, DO NOT interrupt the update process, make/receive phone calls, disconnect the device from the PC, or press any buttons until the process has been completed." (Emphasis mine) Doh... I guess I better disconnect from the network because how else can I prevent people from calling me?
We'll see how things turn out...
