Handheld Pc's

Extracts from this document...


Executive summary The project report is on the planning of new features and applications for the mobile device especially MS office on mobile. Hand held devices (pocket PC and smart phones) are increasingly being used by information worker, high level executives and businessmen as it provides assistance and convenience of a conventional computer, in environments where carrying one would not be practicable. With enhanced features and tools it satisfies the business need on the go. But there are still many obstacles in the way of its usage. The fidelity in viewing is not complete and user finds some losses in the documents when he sees on the mobile device. Moreover the user many a times cannot make required changes because those edit features are not available. The increased popularity of share point and exchange in corporate require some new service to cater their needs. This is becoming important as most of the files are now on the share point, OWA (Outlook Web Access, WAC (Web Access Companion). Downloading attachments and then viewing on the mobile phone is very painful because of the bandwidth limitations and the file size. There are other factors such as limited user input capabilities, screen sizes, limited data storage and so on. In order to overcome this problems and limitations many solutions were proposed. To enhance viewing and editing many features were incorporated based on feedback from marketing and internal analysis. There were some new and creative solution provided to overcome the screen size and downloading files. To view files on share point /WAC/OWA several suggestions were discussed with their advantages and limitations which included a dedicated mobile server or enhancing browsing capabilities to hook to the web service provider.

Current research projects range from inventing more intuitive, productive ways of interacting with computers to improving programming languages, enhancing software-development tools, and applying sophisticated mathematical theories to as-yet-unsolved computational challenges. No matter what end of the spectrum they inhabit, all Microsoft Research projects focus on advancing the state of the art in computing, from increasing programmers' productivity and helping enterprises operate more efficiently to enriching people's experiences with technology at work and at home. 6.10.2 Breakthroughs, Large and Small While some people believe that being innovative or making a breakthrough means "getting there first," Microsoft takes a much broader view. A technology breakthrough or innovation can take years to evolve, and its impact may not be fully realized until years later-as in the case of Internet technology or even e-mail. Microsoft believes that a combination of invention and popularization makes a technology or product innovative, so today's researchers must have the freedom to advance computer science and invent new technologies over the long term. Microsoft researchers work across more than 55 disciplines in an atmosphere with minimal bureaucracy and broad opportunities to exchange ideas. Although most of them pursue long-term goals that extend far beyond current product cycles, they also work closely with other groups at Microsoft to transfer knowledge and help turn their discoveries into functional offerings. Nearly every Microsoft product in the marketplace today - including Smart Personal Objects Technology (SPOT), Xbox 360, Xbox Live, Windows Server(tm) 2003, Office 2003, MSN(r) 8, SQL Server(tm), Windows(r) XP, Office XP, Vista and Windows Media(r) Player 9 Series-has been influenced by Microsoft Research. Occasionally, researchers involved with a project even transfer to the product-development group to assist as their initial ideas take shape. No matter how far-reaching or abstract their projects might be, Microsoft researchers consistently strive for results that eventually will solve computer science's grand challenges. In many cases, their results are shared and applied across multiple research areas. Examples of the challenges Microsoft Research is dedicated to solving and some of the current projects that target these challenges. ...read more.
