Microsoft posts Windows Mobile 6.5 SDK by mistake!

WMStart This is definitely one of those oops moments! Apparently Microsoft published the Windows Mobile 6.5 SDK (software developers kit) on their site late on Friday.

Windows Mobile developers quickly noticed the SDK and several developers got their hands on it quickly before Microsoft pulled it off the site. The SDK includes several tool, emulator and widgets for Windows Mobile 6.5.3, the next version of the OS, 6.6 is thought to be announced in February at MWC.

On Monday, a spokeswoman with Microsoft’s public relations agency confirmed that it had been posted inadvertently. "While the SDK was not announced or promoted, it was discovered and generated questions from the community," she said. "To provide the best experience possible for Windows phone developers, the SDK will be reposted once final testing has been conducted."
