Windows Mobile Device Center

For those working with Vista and are armed with a Windows Mobile device you should check out the beta version of the Windows Mobile Device Center which extends Vista RC1.  If you aren’t already aware Vista will ship with a cut down WMDC which simply allows you to connect to your device.  In order to partner with your device you need to download this update.  AFAIK the plan is to make this an update that will appear in Windows Update when you have a device plugged in.  IMHO this sux and is again another black mark against mobility.  In the same way that the Windows Mobile 5 sdks should have shipped with Visual Studio 2005 (instead of just WM2003SE), the full WMDC should ship with Vista!
