Sony Ericsson Aspen – WinMo 6.5.3 official!

There have obviously been a lot of rumours about Windows Mobile over the past month or so with stories about WM7 and WM6.6 being rumoured to be announced at MWC later this month. Personally I think we’ll hear about Windows Mobile 7 at MWC but I’m not sure we’ll see much of it.

Last month at CES one handset appeared quietly at the end sporting a new update to 6.5: 6.5.3

This morning I woke to an email from Sony Ericsson announcing their new Aspen handset. So there’s a little about the Greenheart concept but what really caught my eye is further down the spec sheet: Operating System: Windows Mobile 6.5.3 so that pretty much confirms it then!

Have a quick look at the press release below, we’ll obviously be trying to get our hands on one too!

February 2, London, UK – Today sees the announcement of Sony Ericsson AspenT, the business mobile phone with green credentials at its core.

Simple email set up allows for a maximized messaging experience on the go. Secure the phone’s contents through the Microsoft MyPhone service, which remotely erases phone data when the handset is lost or stolen.

But it’s not all about work, stay in touch with the fun parts of life with Media Browser and PlayNow T, with simple access to social networks and quick and easy access to media files.
