Windows Mobile 6.5 Gets No Windows Phone 7 Upgrade

If you have a smartphone running Windows Mobile 6.5, you might be hoping that your handset can be updated to Windows Phone 7. The bad news is that will not be happening. Apparently is has to do with the fact that the handsets lack the three buttons WinPo 7 needs.

WinMo 6.5 isn’t going the way of the dodo just yet though. Microsoft is rebranding the OS as Windows Phone Classic Edition. The Os will come in 3G versions and in versions lacking 3G for developing countries.

The lovely HTC HD2 running WinMo 6.5 cannot be upgraded to WinPo 7 thanks to a couple extra buttons it seems. The WP7 devices need three for the home, back, and search functions.

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.
