Microsoft seems to be looking at making WinMo a more productive OS, with a better UI and more streamlined access to email, calendar, and text items. The screenshots we've seen show an operating system that finally looks ready for touchscreen phones. WinMo no longer looks like an old UI that was hastily updated to accommodate touch monitors. It's too early to do any sort of review of 6.5, but so far things look very promising. We'll see more on October 6th.
