Windows Mobile 6.5 devices not coming until end of 2009


Reports are popping up today telling us not to expect to see any Windows Mobile 6.5 devices until earliest third quarter of 2009 and more than likely the end of the year for the majority. If as expected Windows Mobile 6.5 is announced next month at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona how come it takes so long to appear on devices and do we even care anymore. Looking at this more closely where does this leave Windows Mobile 7, if this follows a similar path and also taking into account that it supposedly is a much bigger update than 6.5 can we expect to see this any earlier than 2011 now. It is not looking good for Windows Mobile, lets hope this 6.5 update is worth waiting for, multi touch would be a nice surprise but a media interface overhaul, finger friendly OS and a central app store are the bare minimum.
