Windows Embedded Compact 7 officially announced

--Just passing on some good news..

http://www.microsoft.com/Presspass/p...omputexPR.mspx


TAIPEI, Taiwan — June 1, 2010 — In this day and age, it’s pretty tough to imagine a world without portable electronics such as media players, e-readers, PCs and slates. Imagine your morning commute on a bus or train, workout routine, layover at an airport, or even zoning out without your favorite TV show, album or website keeping you company.
To coincide with Steve Guggenheimer’s keynote at Computex Taipei, Microsoft announced the Windows Embedded Compact 7 public community technology preview (CTP). Windows Embedded Compact 7 is the next generation of Microsoft’s widely used Windows Embedded CE platform, which provides OEMs with the tools and technologies to deliver specialized devices.
With the recent release of Windows Embedded Standard 7, Microsoft brought the power of Windows 7 and Windows Media Center to embedded devices such as set-top boxes, Blu-ray Disc players and televisions — ushering in the next generation of connected media devices. With the release of Windows Embedded Compact 7, Microsoft Windows Embedded is taking another innovative step forward by bringing the power of Windows 7 across another family of specialized devices, such as slates, portable media players and others.
For consumers, Windows Embedded Compact 7 will provide a fantastic experience, offering the ability to share and manage content across networked devices. In other words, it allows entertainment devices connected to the Internet around your home to share content on the fly. Think about that next time the latest viral video shows up on your favorite streaming website and you want to share it with the family.
You’ll be happy to know Windows Embedded Compact 7 will also come with a powerful update to Microsoft Internet Explorer, including support for Adobe Flash 10.1, a simplified media player with tons of codecs, easy library management, and seamless integration with Windows 7-based PCs.
Windows Embedded Compact 7 will also provide a simplified work experience for enterprise users, including an easier way to connect to corporate e-mail, calendar and contacts through Microsoft Exchange 2010 AirSync or Microsoft Exchange Server support. To make on-the-go life even easier, it also includes Microsoft Office and Adobe PDF viewers to access documents, and Windows 7 Device Stage to transfer files between PCs and portable devices.
New technologies in Windows Embedded Compact 7 will provide developers and designers with powerful tools and a streamlined development experience to build compelling devices quickly and easily, while also providing customized and branded experiences.
Additional features and capabilities of Windows Embedded Compact 7 include the following:
Rich and connected experiences for consumers. Windows Embedded Compact 7 gives consumers the ability to share and manage content across networked devices with Digital Living Network Alliance, such as new HDTVs, and a new media library.
Simplified access to information for enterprise users. Windows Embedded Compact 7 makes it easier to connect to corporate e-mail, calendar and contacts over enterprise networks through Microsoft AirSync and Microsoft Exchange, as well as to Microsoft Office and Adobe PDF viewers to access important documents, and to Windows 7 Device Stage to transfer data and media between PCs and devices.
Resources for hardware manufacturers and developers. Windows Embedded Compact 7 provides resources to help bring high-performing, highly reliable and differentiated specialty devices to market quicker with support for multicore and the latest asset relationship management-based architecture and tools, including Platform Builder, Visual Studio, Expression Blend and Silverlight for Windows Embedded.
This release will continue the momentum of Windows 7 technology impacting the experiences that can be delivered on devices by providing a toolkit for hardware manufacturers and developers that will enable them to quickly bring to market reliable and uniquely rich and branded devices.
Windows Embedded Compact 7 provides new tools and technologies such as Platform Builder, Visual Studio and Expression Blend to ensure OEMs and developers have everything they need to create something incredible. There’s even the ability for developers to use Microsoft Silverlight technology for customized and branded experiences on the device or outside of the browser, as well as support for multicore and the latest ARM-based architecture used extensively in portable consumer electronics.
A series of technical white papers are being released today to help OEMs, partners and the developer community learn the ins and outs of Windows Embedded Compact 7. These resources can be found here.
Interested in the Windows Embedded Compact 7 Public CTP? It’s currently available to the public at http://www.windowsembedded.com/compact7, so go get it! The platform is expected to be released to manufacturing in the fourth quarter of this year, so be sure to keep an eye out for additional details.

Re: Windows Embedded Compact 7 officially announced

The biggest benefit of this upgrade will be the easier access for playing movies on pocket devices due to it comes with a lot more codecs built-in which wil make it a lot easier to play any content without worrying about that the codecs won't support the movie and one need to have to download an upgrade. I saw that myself when I proted my collection of Carol Burnett DVD's into my pocket PC and it wouldn't play it at all until I gound a codec upgrade that supported the AVI format I had used.
That being said then C7 will probably require faster CPU's and more RAM in order to run well so lets hope that Intel is able to make more powerful CPU's which requires less power so devices will run cooler and longer as well.
On my current netbook with N270 Atom CPU then I can run Windows C7 pretty well even with 1 GB when not having too many programs open and it does have better GUI than previous windows versions so looking forward to it.
