Windows Mobile 6.5 is Coming

Well by now we all know that Windows Mobile 6.5 is coming. For one Ballmer confirmed its existence late last year. The official announcement is supposed to be made at GSMA Mobile World Congress in Barcelona this month. Steve Ballmer is a keynote speaker so we'll probably hear it from the man himself.

HTC Touch HD

Finally we have a Windows Mobile device with a screen bigger than 2.8"! There haven't been many options thus far (well there is the 5" Advantage / Ameo but it's too big to hold in one hand).

It's called the HTC Touch HD and details can be found here: http://www.htc.com/europe/product.aspx?id=64946

Screen is a beautiful 3.8" WVGA (480 x 800) - nice! Also comes with a 5 megapixel camera.

So hardware is impressive. Let's see how snappy that TouchFlo UI is because it's too sluggish on the Diamond. It's gotta be fast to rival the iPhone.

Personally I think WM 6.1 is way behind the iPhone. So come on Microsoft, let's get WM7 out.
