Calling and Messaging

PocketPCs have an unlimited contact list with a plethora of available fields for each entry. Synchronization with MS Outsee is textbook.

There is a very practical additional field to each contact - the "Last call". It displays the number and the time the contact in question was last called. A full log is available of calls to and from numbers belonging to this contact, as well as call duration and time of call.

Sending and receiving messages is done through the centralized Inbox. It has separate folders for SMS, MMS and email. SMS length is virtually unlimited, as well as the memory available for received and sent messages. Inside the multimedia editor you will find the useful option to create multi-page messages containing more than one melody, image or text.

The Outsee Mobile email client supports POP3 and IMAP accounts. You can have multiple accounts and you can set the client to automatically check mail at regular time intervals. It has full support for sending and receiving attachments.

There is also support for Direct Push. What it means is, instead of checking mail at regular intervals, your messages are delivered to you immediately once they are received by the mail server. The only condition is that the pairing Microsoft Exchange server supports Direct Push. Windows Mobile 6.0 Professional offers some upgrades to the email client in comparison to Windows Mobile 5.0 - now you have search via preinstalled software, plus support for HyperText Markup Language (HTML) email.

"...What really gives the Contents Manager a kick in the butt though is the Photo Slides application. It's a small treasure for those who love fine photo managing software. Photo Slides is quite capable yet simple enough not to bog you down in dozens of settings..."
