Windows Mobile 6.5 Smartphones earliest Q3 2009?

Windows Mobile 6.5 Smartphones earliest Q3 2009?
 
 
It is assumed that Microsoft will debut Windows Mobile 6.5 at the Mobile World Congress 2009 in Barcelona next month. Digitimes reports now that Microsoft is delivering Windows Mobile 6.5 mid-year to device makers like HTC.
This would mean the first Windows Mobile 6.5 powered smartphones would hit the market in Q3 and most of them actually in Q4 2009.
In the meantime Microsoft lets Android build up its momentum with new handsets like the rumored G2 and Palm can have its run on the smartphone market with the Palm Pre without competition from WinMo phones. Apple is also expected to surprise us with a new iPhone this Summer, which would then also still be available before the new Windows Mobile 6.5 phones.
It is likely this schedule also applies to the new rumored mobile cloud services SkyBox and SkyMarket. Maybe the rumor is false and Microsoft can tighten the schedule with Obama's mantra: Yes We Can!

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
