One of the important updates to Office Mobile 2010 was Sharepoint Mobile.  Unfortunately Sharepoint is a technology that is really only used in a corporate context, so most Windows Mobile users have no idea what it does.

Wikipedia says:

Microsoft SharePoint, also known as Microsoft SharePoint Products and Technologies, is a collection of products and software elements that includes, among a growing selection of components, web browser based collaboration functions, process management modules, search modules and a document-management platform. SharePoint can be used to host web sites that access shared workspaces, information stores and documents, as well as host defined applications such as wikis and blogs. All users can manipulate proprietary controls called "web parts" or interact with pieces of content such as lists and document libraries.

MSMobiles have published a review of the Windows Mobile client, and seemed to have some difficulty getting it up and running.  They persevered however and  in the end had this to say about it:

It looks like SharePoint Mobile can be a differentiator that will make purchase of Windows Mobile phones worthwhile! – a reason why to buy Windows Mobile phone rather than Android or iPhone.

… at last Windows Mobile 6.5 has a unique selling point not available at other platforms: Microsoft’s own SharePoint client! If you use SharePoint in your organization/company/enterprise then you should get Windows Mobile 6.5 phone!
