A few more details have slipped out about the next version of Microsoft's operating system for Pocket PCs. This will include a revamp of the Pocket Office applications, as well as other changes.
It's been sometime since we've seen Microsoft give its Pocket PC line a big marketing push. The last campaign I remember was the whole "you have 5 minutes standing in line, will you stare at the sky or do work on your Pocket PC" ad thingy. Meanwhile the MSN Direct Watch that uses Microsoft SPOT (Smart Personal Object Technology) is being lavished with money and marketing. We attended a media event in New York City to kick off a new Swatch watch powered by SPOT technology and were rather impressed by the celebs and money spent to get this device noticed. Even Bill Gates showed up from the left coast.

The OQO Model 01 is about the size of a PDA, but it isn't a PDA per se, and even though it runs Windows XP and has a Hi-Res LCD screen it can't be called a notebook computer. For now most are just calling it the worlds smallest computer. The one thing we can say for sure about the OQO Model 01 is that it's been rumored since the beginning of time (only a slight exaggeration) but its time has now arrived and today it went on sale.
Dell will release an upgrade that will bring the latest version of Microsoft's multimedia software to the Axim X30, and HP will do the same thing for its rx3000 series models.
