According to a report in PocketInfo, the next generation of Windows Mobile OS software will throw out the confusing naming: Windows Mobile Smartphone, Windows Mobile Pocket PC Phone Edition, Windows Mobile Pocket PC. The new software will be called Windows Mobile 6 Standard, Windows Mobile 6 Professional and Windows Mobile 6 Classic, respectively. Pocket PC Phone Edition vs. Smartphone Edition have certainly caused a few headaches. Apparently, the Standard solution is for non-touch screen PDA + phone devices. The Professional solution is for touch screen PDA + phone devices. The Classic solution is for touch screen PDA-only devices. "Classic" means one step away from being phased out, right?
