10 great things which came to Windows Mobile in 2009 – No.10 – 3.5 mm headphone jacks

As we wave goodbye to 2009 it is traditional to have a retrospective. Over the next few hours I will list 10 things which came to Windows Mobile users this year which made this year great.

Number 10 on the list is the death of proprietary ports, with 3.5 mm headphone jacks now becoming almost standard.  We can have pretty high confidence most new handsets will come with standard ports now, meaning their use for media activities is much easier and more likely.

Unfortunately we do not have the music and media services built into our phones yet to take best advantage of this, but this is likely something else we will see coming to us in 2010, and in the mean time side-loading is still possible.

Do you appreciate the rise of standard headphone jacks?  Let us know in the comments below.
