Good news for everyone who’s been waiting for Windows Mobile 6.5. According to a Twitter Windows Mobile 6.5 is a relatively minor update focused on changes to the user interface and its touch-friendliness. Phones carrying the operating system are expected to hit the market sometime this fall. But Microsoft is already working on a newer release of Windows Mobile, namely version 7, with devices based on it expected in the first half of 2010. In any case, if you are in the market for a new smartphone, you might also want to consider waiting a few months before taking the plunge. There are several exciting alternatives coming out shortly – like the much awaited Palm Pre, the HTC Pro 2 and probably an update to the iPhone in June.
