The term " Pocket PC" sometimes causes irritations concerning its definition. In fact, Pocket PC is not the name for the new Microsoft Windows CE 3.0 operating system. Instead, Pocket PC is the name for a mobile device class using a customised version of Microsoft Windows CE 3.0 as its underlying operating system.
