Back in January, I posted about 3 wishes I had for iPAQs in 2005 (over at www.iPAQabilities.com). One of them was the choice to do my own OS upgrades and not be limited by manufacturers’ decisions. Looks like Microsoft listened and is working on a Windows Mobile Update feature (similar to what you have for Windows XP). According to Marcus Perryman, a Microsoft Developer Evangelist, Microsoft is looking to separate the upgrade mechanism for bits that Microsoft owns from the bits that the OEM owns. This should mean that Microsoft can offer things like Media Player 10 updates directly from the Microsoft site.
Imagine that, being able to update your PDA to the latest when Microsoft issues an update!
