Windows Mobile 6.5 is now complete, “looks really good”

Microsoft has just announced, via its developers’ Twitter account, that Windows Mobile 6.5 is finally complete and every bit of it is functional.

According to the WM developers team, the 6.5 OS “looks really good” – and that’s not a surprise, since we’ve seen quite a few images of it.

Of course, we still have to wait for the commercial release of Windows Mobile 6.5, but it’s good news that everything is now ready for primetime. 

To better illustrate what the new Windows Mobile is offering, Microsoft has published a video preview of it, running on the HTC Touch Pro (well, actually it’s AT&T’s version of the Touch Pro – the Fuze, reviewed by us here).

The video includes most of WM 6.5’s features, like MyPhone – which backups your data on a Microsoft server (for free), so if you lose your handset you will be able to restore all the data from it on a new phone.

To view the video, visit Microsoft’s Tech-ed website – it’s definitely worth watching it.


All in all, although it’s not a major upgrade from Windows Mobile 6.1, Windows Mobile 6.5 does seem pretty cool, so WM fans will probably love it.

Needless to say, many WM 6.1 handsets will be upgradeable to WM 6.5 as soon as this is out – handsets like HTC Touch Diamond2, Toshiba TG01 and so on.
