Microsoft peeks at mobile strategy

At the CTIA Wireless IT & Entertainment 2004 conference Monday, Mike Wehrs, Microsoft's director of technology & standards for its Mobility Division, disclosed some details about Big Red's future mobile plans. Wehrs said Microsoft will release Version 2.0 of its .Net Compact Framework (CF) before the end of the year. Version 2.0 will add a number of new features to improve the graphics capabilities of smart phones.

The next version of the .Net CF will support DirectShow, a primitive or low-level graphical element that supports higher-level multimedia images. Other areas targeted for upgrades in future versions of the Windows Mobile operating system include support for device management so that enterprise line of business applications can download code and content securely.
