While Microsoft may not be directly commentating on this information leak, many of Microsoft’s “secondary” sources are predicting dates for the highly anticipated Windows Mobile 6.5 update. Also, Windows Mobile 7 is going to be pushed back until sometime in 2010 onlyl because 6.5 is being release later than expected. Here are estimated release dates:
Windows Mobile 6.5 RTM (release to manufacturing): April 2009
First Windows Mobile 6.5 devices from cell phone makers: September 2009
Windows Mobile 7.0 release to testers: November 2009
First Windows Mobile 7.0 devices from cell phone makers: April 2010
Thanks to WMExperts for doing their due diligence.
Vito Technology released version 1.2 of their ‘Weather’ application for Windows Mobile 6 devices. The program runs very smooth, utilizing the Touch-screen functions. The newest release now covers EVERY CITY in the United States! There are many free Weather apps out there for WM6, but this one is my favorite by far.
