by Richard Shim -- "The announcement will be made in Cannes, France, and the application will be called Microsoft Phone Edition, sources said. The software will allow handhelds to access data and make wireless voice calls. The first devices to support Phone Edition will run on GSM (Global System for Mobile Communications) and GPRS (General Packet Radio Service) networks and will be a new class of devices from manufacturers supporting the Pocket PC OS.

"Phone Edition shows that Microsoft is thinking integration, and it's a good prelude to products that we'll see in the future," IDC analyst Kevin Burden said.
