Windows Mobile Timeline


ZDNet’s Mary Jo Foley has again dug up more information on Microsoft’s plans for Windows Mobile, this time in the form of a rough timeline:

  • Windows Mobile 6.5 RTM (release to manufacturing): April 2009
  • First Windows Mobile 6.5 devices from cell phone makers: September 2009
  • Windows Mobile 7.0 release to testers: November 2009
  • First Windows Mobile 7.0 devices from cell phone makers: April 2010
  • I’m hoping that WinMo 6.5 is going to be available as a software update for current 6.1 devices but I’m not particularly hopeful. If it isn’t I think I’m gonna skip it completely & go straight to WinMo 7 in 2010..how about you?

    My Windows 7 Diary on Microsoft Technet


    Through the magic of Twitter, I heard that they were looking for user submissions for a “Windows 7 Diary” detailing how people are getting on with installing and using Microsoft’s new Operating System.

    I’d been keeping something of a record of my beta testing exploits on this blog anyway (as I’m sure all my regular reader now ha ha!) so I added to that and submitted it. Much to my surprise, mine was chosen to be part of this week’s Technet NewsFlash and also serialised over the week over at Curious George’s Technet Blog (Day 1 is down at the bottom).

    Feel free to let me know what you think!
