There are a number of cool Smartphone and Pocket PC Phone Edition devices out there that run Microsoft Windows Mobile 5: Palm Treo 700w, Motorola Q, T-Mobile SDA, T-Mobile MDA, etc. There are third party applications that let you sync them with a Mac running Mac OS X. Parallels just released a new Beta for Parallels Desktop for Mac that provides another option. One of the new features introduced with this beta is support for more USB devices including Windows Mobile 5 devices (Pocket PC, Pocket PC Phone Edition, and Smartphone). Of course, you need a licensed copy of Windows XP to try this. But, Windows Mobile 5 devices come bundled with Microsoft Outlook. So, if you have a Windows XP running as a Guest OS, you should have everything you need to test out Parallels’ newfound Windows Mobile 5 device compatibility.
