Windows Mobile version 7 in 2010

Just as we are bracing ourselves to catch version 6.5 of Windows Mobile on handsets such as LG-GM730, HTC Touch Diamond 2 and HTC Touch Pro 2, Microsoft’s CEO Steve Ballmer has recently confirmed that Windows Mobile 7 will be available sometime next year.

Although no specific data has been set yet, it is certainly going to be quite an exciting OS to look forward to.

We look forward to the 6.5 version handsets that have stiff competition coming in from Palm’s Pre, TouchFlow, RIM and even LG’s new S-Class 3D UI this year! How exciting for a mobile enthusiast!

Nevertheless, since Windows Mobile has been around for a long enough time, its users do appreciate the various upgrades it’s been through.

According to a few reports, WinMo 7 will have a tighter integration with Windows 7 for PCs that should be out come September of this year. The UI itself may be optimized for finger touch and will hopefully do away with the stylus altogether. Watch this space for more updates on WinMo 7.
