CE .net puts Windows everywhere

Eric Doyle
Windows everywhere came a step closer when Microsoft launched its Windows CE .net operating system at a trade show on Monday.

The operating system will allow businesses to buy or build applications that run from corporate IT systems down to mobile devices, using the "software as a service" model, said Microsoft.

CE .net will allow Web-enabled mobile devices to take advantage of Windows .net services via the Internet. Rather than holding applications on the device, the handheld will rely on its wireless Web connection for access to remote applications and storage.
Microsoft describes CE .net as an embedded real-time operating system for next generation smart devices, such as smartphones, point of sale systems and digital televisions.
