Microsoft hasn't officially released Windows Mobile 6.5 yet, but we all know that it's coming out fairly soon. New phones running Windows Mobile 6.1 have an "Upgradable to Windows Mobile 6.5" sticker that suggests that they will get a free upgrade to Windows Mobile 6.5. It's analogous to purchasing a PC running Vista if you know you can get a free upgrade to Windows 7.
The sad thing about Windows Mobile 6.5 is that it really isn't a huge improvement from Windows Mobile 6.1. Also, I struggle to see why it's taking so long to release 6.5. If we look at some history, we see that Microsoft released:
- Windows Mobile 5.0
- then skipped to Windows Mobile 6.0
- then they released an update called 6.1
- and now we're waiting on yet another update called 6.5
