RC2 of Windows Vista became available a few days ago.  We've also made available the Beta 3 of the Windows Mobile Device Center for Vista.

Windows Mobile Device Center replaces Activesync in Vista and provides a central point for setting up partnerships, configuring your Windows Mobile device and managing content.

This new Beta release also supports Windows Mobile 2003 and 5.0 devices (the previous betas only supported Windows Mobile 5.0)

Setting up a Windows Mobile device is really simple with WMDC and through using WMDC for the past few months my two favourite features:

1) The Photo import tool - if you plug in your device you can quickly see how many new photos are on your device and then import them into your My Pictures in a few simple clicks - you can also tag the photos at the same time! 

2) The Auto-Fill feature of Windows Media Player so I can sync a portion of my music library to my storage card for listening to on my Windows Mobile device!

Previously there was a registry hack floating around the Internet to get the WMDC but you can now get the Beta via a simple Download from HERE
