Microsoft to launch newest version of Windows Mobile next week

Microsoft next week is expected to launch the latest version of its mobile software, Windows Mobile 5. The new mobile OS, code-named Magneto, is designed to make Microsoft's mobile platform more flexible and scalable, allowing device makers to create a large variety of Windows-powered mobile gadgets. Windows Mobile 5 is reported to include a number of improvements, including better one-handed device navigation, a improved version of mobile Word, a mobile viewer for PowerPoint, and the ability to add photos to phone contacts. Windows Mobile 5 will also supposedly make it easier for users to roam between different wireless networks, such as roaming between a cellular data connection and a WiFi hotspot.
