Windows Mobile 6.5 and Microsoft ‘My Phone’

Nathan Simon Nathan Simon Profile: Nathan Simon

It’s official, Windows Mobile 6.5 is out of rumor status… some things that are worth mentioning is that the main screen will have a honeycomb look to it, i.e. in the way the icons are lain out. Most screens have redesigned menus that will not need that dreaded stylus, IE Mobile will have a touchable zoom slider, and frequently-used command. No devices are said to get a Windows Mobile upgrade, but the first Windows Mobile devices should be available before next Winter. Unfortunately for them, I’ll be picking up my Palm Pre before that :)

Also check out the new service being released by Microsoft called “My Phone” Basically you can synchronize all your contacts, emails, texts, photos, documents, and music. Click here. Unfortunately this service is only available as an invitation-only beta. I hope everyone has unlimited data plans!
