As of February 2017, IDS is no longer offering our Windows Mobile 6.5 App.
Windows Mobile 6.5 was released in 2009, with its last update in 2010 and became unsupported by Microsoft in January 2013.
With no updates in 7 years, there are some very valid security concerns with regards to the holes within the unsupported operating system.
IDS has also noted that most devices being sold running Windows Mobile 6.5 are being done so running very old hardware from the same era. It’s exactly like buying a 2009 Windows XP computer.
IDS and our clients have noted that these devices are so out of date, they cant even load modern HTML 5 websites.
With new enterprise level devices running Android coming into the market, like the TC-55, IDS cant, in good conscious, sell old outdated technology.
IDS will continue our full support of our App on Enterprise Level / Military Grade devices running modern fully supported Operating Systems provided by Zebra, Motorola, Intermec.
