Windows Mobile 6.5 coming in October
According to quite a few circulating rumors, it sounds like smartphones running Windows Mobile 6.5 will be arriving in stores in October. Of course, you can probably find a custom-built ROM for many smartphones that are built on Windows Mobile 6.5. My HTC Touch Pro is currently running a custom ROM based on Windows Mobile 6.5. It's not the final build, so it lacks certain features, but it's an improvement over Windows Mobile 6.0 or 6.1.
I think it's great to see how Microsoft is changing their smartphone OS to be more finger touch-friendly. Soon, those days of the thin stylus pen will be gone!
