Windows Mobile 6 – aka Crossbow

I've been in Seattle all week at a technical conference and have been largely living on Windows Mobile devices ... I have a QTek 8500 Smartphone (which is really nice and small Smartphone), a Palm Treo 750 (a Pocket PC with a smaller screen and built in thumboard) and an Orange SPV M3100 (larger PPC with slide out keyboard, Wifi etc). I've also been using Windows Mobile 6 (aka Crossbow) on a couple of other devices for ages... and have gotten really used to some of its new functionality regarding the way e-mail, calendar etc is handled when running against an Exchange 2007 server.

Jason (who was yesterday presenting to a room of 500 screaming and yelling people whilst - I kid you not - dressed as a pirate) has posted on his Mr Mobile! blog with a great summary of what's new in Windows Mobile 6...

... now I can't wait to see it hit the streets on some of the exciting devices that are out now or will be coming soon!

    Not sure if its the right place for this – but it is about a  Treo 750 which uses WM5.

    The problem is that I can’t read the default fonts (since I use reading glasses) without support – even to the extent of finding out who is calling.

    Although I have WM set up to max font sizes (with ClearType on), when I type in a name and it gives me a choice of phone numbers – I can’t read those options due to the font sizes

    – anyway to customize this???
