PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless One of the new requirements of WM5 was that it now had to be installed in the flash ROM instead of the main RAM (on WM5 there is only "program" memory and not "data" memory shared anymore). Microsoft's Mike Calligaro blogged as to why this change can save lots of battery life.

If you had critical data to use with your PDA, it could be stored on removable storage. Compact flash storage devices, and later, SD/MMC could/can be used for persistant storage of applications, music, documents, etc., on pre-WM 5 devices and is still needed if you have enough data/applications to exceed the built-in storage.
