This story was of special interest to me as I recently purchased a CE 2.11 Pro device (HP Jornada 680) into which I'll be putting a 170MB Type II ATA card and using its CF slot to transfer (and sort) images from my digital cameras when I'm out in the field.
Sierra Imaging, Inc., the only company offering OEMs all the necessary components for digital still camera product success, today announced the direct online availability and enhanced capabilities of Image Expert(TM) CE 2.0. This latest version of Image Expert CE now supports all PC companion products powered by Microsoft Windows CE 2.0 and 2.11.
Sierra Imaging, the first company to offer a Windows CE 2.0-based imaging solution for every Handheld PC, is again the first imaging solution to support Palm-size PC devices from such vendors as Casio, Compaq, Everex, Hewlett Packard, Philips and others.
In addition to supporting new form factors, Image Expert CE 2.0 enhances the user experience with powerful new features like:
- For the first time on Windows CE-based devices, the ability to create, display and edit text over images and build slide show presentations, allowing users to modify presentations on their CE device while they are away from their desktop PC.
- Creating slide show shortcuts for faster convenient, one step access to slide show presentations of favorite images.
- Support for "high color" and large screen devices for displaying "photo realistic" images for stunning real-time presentations.
"With Image Expert CE 2.0 users can now utilize the same powerful imaging features across all Windows CE-based devices," said Barbara Matthews VP marketing for Sierra Imaging. "Color images in the palm of your hand mean that you will truly be able to take digital images with you everywhere and share them with others."
"We applaud Sierra's strong commitment to the Windows CE platform," said Roger Gulrajani, group product manager, Productivity Appliance Division, Microsoft Corp. "Applications like Image Expert CE unleash new functionality and capabilities further establishing Windows CE as an innovative and powerful mobile computing platform."
