For those hardcore Microsoft fans, Windows Mobile will have a new release scheduled in October. The upcoming version is 6.5 and has been promised to make life simpler. Microsoft claims, “On 6 Oct, you’ll see new Windows phones designed for a variety of tastes, needs and price points – with or without keyboards, with or without touch screens, as well as your choice of GPS, accelerometer and high resolution camera.”
We are still not convinced whether WinMo 6.5 will have enough to take on Android. Personally I don’t understand why doesn’t Microsoft work on WinMo’s UI like they did with Zune HD. On a usability perspective, the OS definitely feels much primitive and obsolete when compared to Android or iPhone OS.
