The Windows Mobile Device Center Beta is only supported on Windows Vista RC1.

Features Include:

  • Streamlined setup – A simplified new partnership wizard and improved partnership management.
  • Robust synchronization – Synchronization of business-critical data such as e-mail, calendars, contacts, tasks, favorites, and files.
  • Photo management – Picture management helps you detect new photos on your Windows Mobile powered device, tag and import them to the Windows Vista Photo Gallery.
  • Media synchronization – Use Microsoft Windows Media Player to synchronize and shuffle music files on your device.
  • File browsing – A new device browsing experience enables you more quickly browse files and folders and open documents on your device directly from your PC.
  • Enhanced user interface – A simple and compelling user interface helps you to quickly access critical tasks and configure your device.

    So why the hell didn’t they just bundle it in with Vista for RC2? Oh I know, because they either forgot, or were too busy in missing their deadlines 😛

    It was nice to release WMDC at last, several weeks after the release of Vista RC1. It works as worked the former edition relaesed together with Microsoft Vista Beta2, probably better. However, the protection of the (synchronized) device against viruses seems to be out of bounds for the only antivirus software, which works with Vista RC1 (Avast not Trend Micro PC-cillin!) and Defender. Does not make too much sense to me. Any comments?
