With the new development project underway, and the lessons of the past under their belts. The Pegasus team started working on a completely new system. Out of the WinPad project Pegasus took the overall aspirations brought by the hardware design, and completely abandoning the code in favour of the newer and far superior bit technologies that Microsoft were developing elsewhere.

Code from the Pulsar project already Win32 was carried forward into the new group. Testing of the Pegasus groups output began in early , under the project code name of Windows Pegasus. Pegasus was to be used on the new lines of mobile device running on specially designed hardware. Crucially the hardware requirements would be very strict. OEM’s had to comply with the established guidelines. This meant that special low power hardware was mandatory.

Even with bit Processors these demands solved the Battery problems experienced with WinPad. Microsoft created a reference platform specification, which the Pegasus group saw to be the ideal format for the new device. This specification was sent to the seven hardware partners signed up to produce the hardware for the new Windows operating system. The Pegasus Reference Platform dictated that all devices must be:.

Pegasus was also to be considerably more advanced then even consumer versions of Windows that succeeded it. Pegasus was to be a multifunction, multi-region device. To do this Microsoft needed to ensure that it had the power to expand and adapt to different markets. In making use of bit processor technologies and enforcing the universal use of Unicode data through the Operating system Unicode stores character information using a minimum of 2-bytes 16 bit’s instead of 1-bytes as with ASCII they could ensure that the new platform could be used anywhere in the world, in any language.

This CE 1. The Pegasus group were concerned that the form factor of a PDA being a “pocketable” device was too well ingrained into the consumer psyche. They also were all too aware of the problems experienced by Apple with the Newton release, which, despite finding a niche had failed to captivate or inspire the consumer with its keyboard-less, and legendarily unreliable handwriting input system.

In an effort to capture the high ground from it’s competition and distance its new product from the established PDA and Notebook markets the new release was to be billed as a “PC Companion”. Marking what would be the start of a recurring trend, Hewlett Packard elected to buck the established restrictions and pushed for a modified hardware specification.

Hp remodelled the Handheld PC to closer match the winning formula they had found from the popular LX. Widening and thinning down the chassis compared to other manufacturer’s offerings so that an extra pixels could be included on the screen. Microsoft’s original specification dictated that devices use x pixels, where as the new LX from hp would use VGA width and Half VGA height, giving a mobile experience similar to that of many desktops of the time.

The x or ‘HVGA’ screen specification proved to be the winning formula for hp. Once again electing to call upon their own experience, rather than Microsoft ‘PC Companion’ initiative. The moved pushed them out in front of the competition and into a long standing relationship as the standard bearer of what a true Handheld PC was meant to be. The specification changes introduced by hp proved to be so popular that no devices running on the original x screen size were released for the Windows CE 2.

Windows CE 1. Given the intrinsic difficulties in localisation for the Asian market, Microsoft were slow off the mark with realising the urgency for penetrating the Japanese market place with a Windows branded device.

By the time Microsoft were able to finalise Windows CE 1. The move failed dismally as the industry saw the already shaky release as being too little, too late. In the 10 months from the initial release date of the English version of CE 1.

When the Handheld PC’s was finally seen in the Japanese markets, it was widely expected that the release would be insignificant, and one month later, in the November of Microsoft unveiled Windows CE Mercury 2. In the October of , just weeks before the first Windows CE 1. The new Office 97 included Outlook, a new, unified, Personal Information Management application designed to rival the dominant Lotus releases. With the majority of corporations still relying on cc:Mail, MS Mail, Microsoft Exchange or Lotus Domino, and a stubbornness from Microsoft on providing support to anything other than its own PC PIM client – that exists to this day – the much coveted corporate market was less than impressed, with few interested in migrating to Outlook so soon after its release to take the plunge.

Where Microsoft left off, inexorably developer ingenuity was to follow, and by March , Pumatech had readied its own sync client for the 1. The development community was slow to pick up on the tools. Events and circumstances had conspired to see the Windows CE 1.

On September 29, , not even 12 months after CE 1 was released. The Microsoft Corporation officially announced the end of the road for the first generation companion device, and heralded the release of Windows CE 2. Pegasus was the first in a long line of mythological code names given to Windows CE related development projects within Microsoft. For more on the lineage of Handheld PC Explorer 1. Now-a-days finding software, information and other such Windows CE 1 related web sites is very hard to do.

The official Microsoft Web site doesn’t seem to recognise the existence of any mobile device operating system before that of CE 2. With no warranties left, and the manufacturers who sold us their CE 1 products, full of promise now telling us their is nothing that they can do to help it falls to the Internet community to keep the vision of CE 1 alive.
