As a source for reliable rumors, Digitimes is pretty solid. Not perfect or 100% accurate, but solid. Today they're reporting that Microsoft will be launching version 6.6 of Windows Mobile in February. This patch will add in support for capacitive touchscreens and help (Microsoft believes) to strengthen their platform against the iPhone and Android platforms.

I'm not going to go into a rant about whether or not that is a realistic expectation (it's not). Digitimes is also reporting that Windows Mobile 7 will be delayed until 2011. Currently, 7 is expected to hit near the end of this year. We've been lead to believe that 7 will play a huge part in Microsoft's plan to make their OS a more popular choice in the mobile arena. Any delay to its release would be a big shift for them.

We won't know for sure about 7 for months, but we'll see if Digitimes was accurate about 6.6 in just a few more weeks.
