The Windows Mobile 5.0 Messaging and Security Feature Pack has been announced today.  This is big news for enterprise mobile deployments.

Key features include:

  • True push email.  The device will maintain an always-on connection
  • Remotely managable security - administrators can push the red button and wipe the device, set policies on the devices and perform common admin tasks centrally
  • Reduces the need for third party servers

Full details are available on the Messaging and Security Feature Pack web site.

Nathan will be talking about this at tomorrows Wellington Windows Mobile User Group meeting
