Windows Mobile Smartphones

This system was originally designed as a mobile analog desktop Windows. In Microsoft tried to lay in it, the same principles of the user to feel as comfortable as in their stationary PCs.


Until then, while it was on handheld computers, the principle of "similarity" to the desktop of Windows worked. But it turned out to be for smartphones poorly applicable. Windows Mobile interface was "imprisoned" by using the stylus: a lot of small items, small icons, menu navigation, etc.
In addition, the Windows Mobile interface a little like a usual menu of mobile phones, making development of this OS is more complicated for the average user. It has enabled many different companies producing software to create their own custom shell for Windows Mobile, which somehow facilitates the management of the device. The same shell created and manufacturers of smartphones.
Fortunately, Microsoft realized that this approach does not make their system more popular, and from one version to do everything possible to facilitate the management of the device with one hand. Thus, even Windows Mobile 6.5.3 on controllability can be compared with the best touch interface.


The big advantage of Windows Mobile - the possibility of a very deep configure the operating system user under his own preferences. The platform allows you to replace a variety of built-in utilities with their own, radically change the look and set of desktop items, browser settings and much more.

Business Opportunities

Business Opportunities Windows Mobile - out of competition. Perfect compatibility with MS Office package and service MS Exchange - in this case it still has no equal. Knowingly smartphone based on Windows Mobile became almost an obligatory attribute of managers at various levels in many companies.

Number of available software

Number of available software for this platform is difficult to assess - for 10 years of its existence has been released a lot of useful and interesting programs, utilities, and games. However, until recently the problem of software distribution for Windows Mobile was as acute as in the case of Symbian. Only in 2009, Microsoft announced the launch of the store Windows Marketplace, through which you can directly from their mobile devices to buy and download software. While variety in the store is small, but it's only a matter of time.

Support types of touch screens

Support types of touch screens - another important point. Only starting with Windows Mobile versions 6.5.h started to support capacitive screens, before that all devices are equipped only with touch screens that work on resistive technology. The difference is that the capacitive screen only responds to finger pressure, and the resistive screen is capable of handling the press in any subject, including a stylus, but pressing the finger reacts slightly worse. Today released Windows-smartphone with both types of displays.
