One of Sprint‘s popular Windows Mobile smartphones, the Samsung ACE (SPH-i325), can now be upgraded to the latest 6.1 version of Microsoft’s OS.
Of course, we’re talking about Windows Mobile 6.1 Standard and not the Professional edition, since the ACE is a non-touchscreen device and does not support the latter.
Together with the new WM, Sprint and Samsung are also offering several other enhancements. The most important one is related to GPS: Samsung ACE is now GPS capable and supports Sprint Navigator.
Other improvements include Office Mobile 6.1 and support for unsigned applications, meaning that users are now allowed to install third-party apps, with or without certification.
You can get the WM 6.1 update for your ACE by visiting Samsung Mobile’s website.
Released by Sprint at the beginning of 2008, Samsung ACE is available from the US carrier for $99.99, after a $100 mail-in rebate and the signing of a 2-yr contract. Well, now you have GPS capabilities too for that money.
