Exchange Support Is Quite Good

It might sound simplistic, but because Microsoft developed Windows Mobile, the software works extremely well with Microsoft Exchange. And as most corporate users know, Exchange has become central to the success of many companies. Given the link between Windows Mobile and Exchange, companies could find value in the operating system beyond anything else on the market.

But there is still a major player in that space that doesn't get the kind of respect that it might deserve: Windows Mobile.

Read on to find out what makes Windows Mobile still a somewhat useful tool to corporate users.
