PocketPC Magazine Renamed

By way of Aximsite.com, we’ve learned that PocketPC magazine is going to be renamed to Smartphone & Pocket PC.

From the press release:

Now once again in 2005, because of projections for explosive Smartphone growth, a major market shift has taken place. The newest incarnation of the Windows CE-based handheld operating system called Windows Mobile 5 provides PDAs and Smartphones a similar look and functionality. Therefore, starting with the 2006 Buyer�s Guide on newsstands in November, Pocket PC becomes Smartphone & Pocket PC.

It will still be seen on the web at PocketPCMag.com. They’ve been very good about mentioning genealogy software, with reviews, and including ‘Genealogy’ as a software category in their ‘Best Software Awards’ issues. Hopefully they will continue the same.
