Windows Mobile 6.5 coming to a hand near you

I've not seen it yet, just reading stuff on the world wide wait ...

Microsoft on Monday made its latest bid to stem share loses in the mobile sector with a new version of its Windows Mobile software that includes an online store for third-party applications and also ties into a new cloud service for syncing mobile data.

Presenting at the Mobile World Congress 2009 in Barcelona, the Redmond-based software giant said it's signed deals with a number of top-tier mobile partners to deliver the next generation of Windows phones that will run Windows Mobile 6.5, which features a new user interface and a richer browsing experience when it becomes available during the second half of the year.

Now the fun part ... linking to the Apple Insider blog where the above two paragraphs were lifted, which goes in to some detail regarding Windows Mobile 6.5 and some of the devices available ... ooo the irony! Watch out iPhone!

I'll try get my hands on one of these and have a play, if it gives off good Karma I may very well switch off my iPhone in favour for Windows Mobile 6.5!

If you are lazy, then this pre-formed search link may help you dig out some tidbits on the new Windows Mobile OS.
