[ Music ] ^M00:00:03 [ Background Music ] >> Hi! I'm Bonnie Cha, Senior Editor at CNETTV.com and today we're taking a first look at Windows Mobile 6.1 and this is in the major overhaul of the mobile operating system but there are a few enhancements that make it easier to use and easier to set up which is what they're really concentrating on. First, on the home screen, they tend to revamp the whole thing. They've made the clock larger because they've got a lot of costumer request for that since they've have using cellphones more than watches. Also, they've got a new getting started menu where you can set up your e-mail and your background image and blue tooth setup that was really important to them just to make it easier to use for new costumers. Web viewing is also easier now because it has a zoom in and out and you can now go to a certain point on the page and zoom in so you don't have to do a lot of scrolling. Other enhancements include a multiple select for e-mails. It will rule out for Smart phones starting in Q2. It will come to the standard edition phones first and then it will come to personal edition but all right, some nice enhancements. It's not a huge thing again. It's all about ease of use and is a little bit easier to use but you know when this mobile has been a little bit known for making everything a little complicated but this helps. So, I'm Bonnie Cha and this has been your first look at Windows Mobile 6.1.
