Recent rumors and announcements from Microsoft’s have claimed that Windows Mobile 7 will drop at the upcoming Mobile World Congress. This sounded sensible, as multiple manufacturers have confirmed it.
DigiTimes now reports the following:
Sales of Windows Mobile 6.5 have been flat since the platform was launched in the fourth quarter of 2009, pushing Microsoft to bring forward Windows Mobile 6.6, which supports capacitive touchscreens, the sources noted.
However, Microsoft may now delay the launch of Windows Mobile 7 to 2011, instead of the end of 2010 as originally planned, the sources indicated.
As of now, not much further information is available – stay tuned!
P.S. Windows Mobile 6.5.3 can also be considered a “complete rewrite”…
