My window to the world


Vodafone VMC and Vista

By Mauricio Freitas, in , posted: 3-Nov-2006 10:19

In a previous post I pointed out that some companies are in a state of "let Vista be in the wild first, then we develop and update", which means they will be late, and impacting businesses around the world.

Some of our Geekzone users around here tried the Vodafone vodem USB device to connect to Vodafone's HSDPA cellular data network with their Windows Vista tablet PC and laptops, and it simply didn't work.

Today I got an official reply from Vodafone New Zealand regarding this issue. The response is

The VMC software for Vista is being developed globally. I can’t give you an exact date for delivery, but it is in development. The upgrade will be available for download from www.vodafone.co.nz. You can register for software updates online.


Microsoft Windows Vista is very close. Consumers won't see it until 2007, but enteprise IT is already planning deployments. I know of at least two large deployment projects in New Zealand. Also Windows Vista will be available to MSDN subscribers seven days after the RTM. So it is possible the final version can be used by business customers and developers as early is the first week of December 2006.

So I guess this settles the question, at least on this software.
