Pocket PC 2003 Phone Edition

MSMobiles.com has obtained and released a bunch of pictures of the upcoming Pocket PC 2003 Phone Edition OS.  The new OS will be based on Windows CE 4.2, compared to Windows CE 3.0 on which current Pocket PC 2002 Phone Edition is based. Looks like the OS will be out during the second half of the year for new phones.  Note, this is not the next full version of Pocket PC OS with .NET integration, it’ll be a couple of years before we see that.
