Daylight Savings Time and Windows Mobile


One of the advantages of using a mobile phone running Windows Mobile is that you no longer need to be bothered with remembering to adjust the clock when daylight savings time changes. At 3AM this morning here in Sweden we put the clock back to 2AM, so last night my wife and I spent 15 minutes adjusting all the watches in the house. The old clock we did not adjust was the one on my Windows Mobile.

When I woke up this morning at 5AM (which used to be 6AM and match my normal alarm time at working days) I noticed that Windows Mobile had adjusted the time correctly, and it also showed a dialog informing me about that it had made this change. This is really nice!

The only problem is that you need to remember that Windows Mobile actually do adjust the time automatically, which is an exception to every other clock. If you do adjust it manually you will get a double adjustment.
