In the press release linked in my previous post, Toshiba currently only offers upgrade to PPC 2003 for certain e750/755 series. You cannot upgrade your e740 right now. It's very hard to say if Toshiba will offer upgrades to other models.

The upgrade will wipe out your Pocket PC. You should NOT restore from a backup after upgrading because you will overwrite system files with older versions.

Instead,use a different syn name for your upgraded Pocket PC. When you sync, all your PIM data (Outlook stuff) will get synced to the PDA. Then re-install your applications.

Hi,

I agree that up gradation of version 2003 is safe. I found a lot of useful information here. Thanks for sharing.
