Two New Updates for Windows Mobile Devices

Microsoft Office Communicator Mobile extends the reach of Live Communications Server 2005 to information workers who use Windows Mobile based devices. Communicator Mobile offers a similar look and feel to the desktop version of Microsoft Office Communicator 2005, and it ensures that access to capabilities that are provided by Live Communications Server 2005 continues when users are away from their desks.
  • Windows Mobile 2003 SE for Pocket PCs
  • Windows Mobile 5.0 for Pocket PCs
  • Windows Mobile 2003 SE for Smartphone
  • Windows Mobile 5.0 for Smartphone
NOTE: Information on fixes included in this version see KB article 919950.
Virtual Earth Mobile 1.64  If you use Virtual Earth Mobile, you may have recently noticed that a few features stopped working when the Virtual Earth website updated its server software.  Specifically, Driving Directions and Business Search were broken. 
New features include:
  1. Driving directions drawn directly on the map.
  2. Pushpins! Now when you search for an address, business, or contact, the map won’t just be centered on the place, there will be a nice labeled pushpin there.
  3. GPS improvements.  GPS should work much smoother now.  Added an options dialog directly in the app so you don’t need to deal with any other GPS control panel (which was missing on Smartphone anyway).  You will still need to set up a Bluetooth COM port for Bluetooth GPSes, however.
Thanks Jason!
