Microsoft Previews Pocket IE

HANOVER, Germany - Microsoft demonstrated the new Internet Explorer for Pocket PC today, showing off an impressive browser for handheld devices. Pocket Internet Explorer is one of the first web browsers that allow handheld devices to visit any web site, not just pre-selected content for PDAs.

Pocket Internet Explorer allows access to web sites in an offline setting with Mobile Favorites synchronization or real-time browsing via a modem or wireless Internet access device.

Pocket PCs with the new Pocket Internet Explorer are expected to be available from companies like Casio, Compaq, and Hewlett-Packard in the first half of this year.
