There have been some hints from Microsoft that they are changing their views and ideas about the Pocket PC. They are also looking into what kind of features it must possess. All Pocket PCs contain the Microsoft OS and applications built in and they also share similar designs. With software and technology innovations, newer Pocket PCs are now equipped with Bluetooth and Wi-Fi features. With the release of Windows Mobile 2003 OS, Pocket PCs now have integrated support for digital cameras. Microsoft has continuously developed software and improves its Mobile OS to support faster CPUs using the ARM architecture.
Microsoft is contemplating on adding more functionality to the Pocket PC OS so they are advising software developers to prepare for larger displays and rotating screens in their applications. This step will encourage the adoption of the platform because it can interface with a computer screen. New software supporting electromagnetic digitizers for Pocket PCs will also be coming out. A clamshell Pocket PC or one with pullout QWERTY keyboard is also on the horizon and something software developers need to prepare for.
