Windows Mobile 7 might be unveiled at MWC 2010

Not long after LG confirmed that Windows Mobile 7 is coming this year, we’re now hearing that Microsoft is actually ready to unveil its new mobile OS as soon as February – at MWC 2010.

According to ZDNET, Robbie Bach (President of Microsoft’s Entertainment and Devices Division) has recently mentioned WM7, saying that “things will be talked about at MWC.” And while this doesn’t necessarily mean that a full announcement is due for this year’s edition of MWC (15 – 18 February), we should certainly expect important details to be unveiled there.

Robbie Bach went further by saying that he saw Windows Mobile 7 and “played with it”, although he didn’t give any details about the hardware used. He’s confident that the new OS can “set the bar forward not in (just) an evolutionary way” and that it will attract not just business-focused users.

Reportedly, Microsoft intends to be “more engaged” with the OEMs that make Windows phones from now on.

We don’t know if we’ll get to see any WM7 devices in February, but, either way, Microsoft should hurry up with its new platform, because the competition will be stiff.

    Another delay, another Microsoft promise that we'll see Windows Mobile 7 soon. Feb 15. OK. We'll give them 'till Feb 15.

    Somehow I expect that when Feb 15 arrives, we'll be told of further delays, and a release date pushed into 2011.

    I've heard many other people say that WM7 is already D.O.A. I'm starting to agree.
