Stolen Windows Mobile 6.5 Prototype Phone Wiped Remotely

As is common practice with phones on corporate networks, that prototype HTC phone with Windows Mobile 6.5 on it stolen from Telstra's CEO was remotely wiped after it was reported swiped.


A Microsoft staffer confers to APC Mag that the user data and the operating system were both erased as soon as CEO Sol Trujillo reported his phone stolen, and shouldn't have left the thief too much time to get data off of it. The upside is that even though Windows Mobile 6.5 isn't quite ready for wide release, it's ready enough to have the remote wipe feature enabled. [APC Mag]
