According to Microsoft, Windows phones are the new phones that include the Windows Mobile 6.5 operating system. It is an interesting re-branding strategy by the guys at Redmond.
A handful of phones have been announced as pencilled down for an update to the WinMo 6.5 OS. Notable among them are the Omnia 2, Touch Diamond 2 and Touch Pro 2. No formal statement on the Xperia X1 yet.
But why should Sony Ericsson’s silence or reluctance to provide an update keep me from switching to the Windows Phone club? What I have done is hunt out an official Windows Mobile 6.5 ROM, which I have now downloaded. I will test it out over the next few days, and if it does not pop up serious issues, I’ll probably keep it.
Yes; just so I can say that I have a Windows Phone. At least I can for now. How about you? Do you have a Windows Mobile device or a Windows Phone?
