Windows Mobile 6.5 Officially Announced

The Discussion

    The Windows Mobile team did a great job with the UI.  I don't think it ends here..still room for improvement for WM7.0.  I am particularly fond of the unique, hopefully patented, "honeycomb" menu.  I'd like to see the Windows Client team somehow incorporate "honeycomb" into Windows 7.  That would create some additional recoginizable UI elements between the desktop and mobile devices.

    I'm really not sure about this "My Phone" service...especially if you are already using Live Mesh and Windows Live services.

    Completely agree with JohnCz, this is impressive and exactly what a +0.4 release (6.1 -> 6.5) should be. I am relieved that it isn't being passed off as a WinMob7 release, shows that they know they have a lot of work to do.

    It's odd but I am seriously stoked for the new lock screen, I pictured something incredibly similar when the iPhone was leaking and I am glad to see it realised by a company like Microsoft. Good job Smiley

    Woohoo, about time! I work in cell phone retail and I've been hesitant to recommend any Windows touchscreen phones because the buttons are so small! Looks like this will fix that.

    Agreed - all phones should have this lock screen! I neeeeed that.
