T-Mobile has once again made a Windows Mobile 2003 upgrade available for its Pocket PC Phone Edition device. This was available briefly a few weeks ago but it was removed after many people who downloaded it ran into problems.
This isn’t the updated version of the operating system Microsoft is expected to announce later today. Instead it will upgrade T-Mobile’s cellular-wireless device from Pocket PC 2002 to Windows Mobile 2003.
This upgrade will allow this device to have an “always-on” Wireless Data connection to the Internet.
It will also add Windows Media Player 9, improved SMS integration, and call muting. A new dual volume control separates the phone’s ringer volume and the Pocket PC’s system volume.
The free upgrade can be found on the T-Mobile web site.

T-Mobile is no longer offering this device and is expected to begin selling the next version, called the xda II, in the U.S. in the coming months.
