Microsoft has just posted a job ad, saying that it’s looking for a Software Development Engineer that will be working with the Windows Mobile 7 International/Content Test Team and be able to make an “immediate” difference.
Microsoft says that they “are rolling out a number of new Test technologies, tools, and processes aimed at the improvement of the UI and Localization Quality of the next Windows Mobile releases”. This most probably means that Windows Mobile 7 is currently in the testing phase – so it shouldn’t be long until leaked images of the new OS will start to show up.
Microsoft’s jobs ads aside, LG today mentioned at CES 2010 that Windows Mobile 7 will indeed be launched this year, reconfirming what Steve Ballmer said back in February 2009.
Now let’s hope that Microsoft will finish working on WM7 by mid 2010, so we can have WM7 phones before the end of the year.
