Yes. The MC909X will support WPA2 (WLAN security) in the Q1’06 timeframe.

3. Will we support Windows Mobile 2003 and CE 4.2 on the MC909X?
No. Symbol typically does not release new products with older versions of the operating system.  Hence the MC909X will not support the older version of Windows Mobile 2003 and CE 4.2. This technology refresh supports CE 5.0 / Windows Mobile 5.0 on the ‘-G’ form-factor and Windows Mobile 5.0 on the ‘-G’, ‘-K’, and ‘-S’ form-factors.

No.  There is no hardware-based upgrade from an MC906X to an MC909X.
6.      Are the MC906X and MC909X keypads interchangeable?
No.  This is due to the difference in rubber bumpers (smaller and harder on the MC909X) and the change from a Piezo in the keypad to the superior performing back-housing speaker.
7.      Will we support or comply with RoHS on the MC909X?

The pick-list feature will be supported in the MC909X configurations with Imager on the Windows Mobile 5.0 out of the box. For MC909X CE 5.0, it will be available as a upgrade at a later date. For the current MC906X, the feature will be available on Windows Mobile 5.0 and CE 5.0 upgrade via software download in Q1’06. It is also being planned for availability on the MC906X\WM2003 by early November.
17. Will applications written for the current MC906X work on the MC909X?
In most cases, yes, but it depends on how the application is written.  The MC906X runs CE 4.2 / Windows Mobile 2003 (WM’03), while the MC909X runs CE 5.0 / Windows Mobile 5.0 (WM 5.0). Some changes may be required to enable the application to run on CE 5.0 / WM 5.0. However the changes are not expected to be extensive. Symbol plans to have partners that can work with end users to migrate their applications from WM'03 on the MC906X to WM 5.0 on the MC909X.
