Windows Mobile 6.1 was released this year when Microsoft introduced Mobile Device Manager 2008 (MDM 2008). You might wonder why they didn't just add more functionality to Configuration Manager. I think the reason is that mobile devices and PCs require different management features. Perhaps more functionality would have bloated Configuration Manager.

Microsoft just released MDM 2008 SP1. The main new features are:

  • Multiple Instances: More than one instance of Mobile Device Manager
  • PIN Reset
  • Enrollment Auto Discovery: Matches the user with the correct MDM instance
  • Scalability: MDM 2008 SP1 supports up to 40,000 users
  • Windows Server 2008 support

You can download the evaluation edition here. There are also some downloads related to MDM SP1, for example, the Resource Kit tools. Marco Nielsen has all the links.
