Microsoft has announced the availability of Windows Embedded for Point of Service (POS) 1.1 Update.

The new version includes support for the latest industry POS standards, a streamlined ability to install mass storage devices during setup, and expanded language support, that now totals 33 languages.

Microsoft has also announced the availability of developer solution POS for .NET 1.11, with support for new device classes covering biometrics, electronic journals, bill acceptors and image scanners.
