Microsoft's hardware partners, Hewlett-Packard, NEC Computers and MainStreet Networks Client Devices Group (formerly the platform division of Vadem) have pledged support for the software and announced plans to bring the new handheld PCs to market.

HP will incorporate Handheld PC 2000 into its Jornada 720 handheld PC and MainStreet will be using the devices in its Clio family of products.

The Handheld PC 2000 devices are based on the Microsoft Windows CE 3.0 operating system and include an integrated client for Windows 2000 terminal services, which will allow companies to deploy hand-helds as thin-clients to access corporate applications.

Handheld PC 2000 also includes a Microsoft Internet Explorer 4.0 compatible browser, an e-mail client, personal information manager functionality and pocket versions of desktop Office applications.
