We’ve heard about Microsoft’s dual platform strategy only few weeks ago, and now this seems to be confirmed.
Once WM 7 is out (sometime in Q4 2010), Microsoft will lower the price of WM 6.5 and make it compete with Android, while WM 7 devices would compete with Apple’s iPhone (which, by then, will reach the fourth or fifth generation).
Windows Mobile 6.5 should be officially launched on October 1 this year, with a WM 6.5 “touch interface” upgrade coming in February 2010.
