You can wirelessly transfer (a.k.a., “beam”) documents, contacts, appointments, tasks, and other files from one Windows Mobile device to another using the infrared capabilities built into most devices. The easiest way to beam one of these items from a touch screen device is to find it in the list view of the application, hold your stylus down on the file name until the edit menu pops up, and select the “Beam ...” option. On non-touch screen smartphones, highlight the item in a list and press Menu >Send >Beam.
