Windows Mobile 7 actually delayed to 2011?

Although LG and other sources have apparently confirmed that Windows Mobile 7 would be released by the end of 2010, it looks like this may not happen.

Bright Side Of News has reportedly spoke with reps from Microsoft, HTC, Nvidia, Qualcomm, Lenovo, Texas Instruments, Nokia and others, which all said the same thing: Windows Mobile 7’s release is postponed to 2011. I’m not sure what Nokia has to do with WM7, but anyway…

Because of this delay, “dedicated Windows Mobile 7 cellphones and smartbooks are now being shifted to Android”. So it looks like manufacturers have already prepared the hardware for Windows Mobile 7 and they want to sell it as soon as possible, so they’re forced to look for other Operating Systems – and since Android is both free and quite popular lately, it’s a logical choice.

Of course, the alleged WM7 delay might be just bogus, so we’d better wait for something official about this to come from Microsoft.

    It's a bizarre story, but nonetheless tantelizing.

    LG publicly announced that Windows Mobile 7 phones will be on the market in a few months. Microsoft prepping for the big debut of Windows Mobile 7, to be showcased at the MWC expo in February.

    Then this little rumor comes out of the blue, from unverified sources. It would be shocking if it were true. Microsoft has been leading journalists to believe the OS will be unveiled soon. I don't think even Microsoft would do this, if the Windows Mobile 7 operating system was in serious jeopardy of further delays.

    I don't think it's possible that Microsoft would behave like that. Therefore, the rumor must be untrue. Meantime, it's full steam ahead for the unveiling of Wiindows Mobile 7 in February!
