New operating system for mobile phones from Microsoft

Microsoft is developing an operating system that supports the TCP/IP protocol and is therefore fully 'compatible' with the Internet. It is the successor to Windows CE and is called CE.NET. The '.NET' is appended because the OS makes use of the .NET services.

Windows CE.NET, also called Talisker, was presented at the Professional Developers Conference in Los Angeles. The new operating system is intended for cell phones and smartphones, and access the .NET services. Internet Explorer and video/audio codecs from Microsoft should also be included. TCP/IP, LAN, IrDA and Bluetooth are supported. An emulation of Windows CE.NET can be downloaded from the Microsoft site . Windows 2000 or XP is required.
