Moto MING for US to run Windows Mobile?

Moto MING Windows Mobile

The enhanced version of Motorola's MING touchscreen phone coming to the US won't use its normal Linux interface, according to a new report. As the Linux-based JUIX operating system used by Motorola doesn't currently support faster HSDPA Internet access, the company will allegedly be forced to use Windows Mobile 6 to support both the touch interface and the newer connection.

The decision is expected after Motorola revealed that the RAZR2 V9 would use the older, proprietary Synergy interface to permit HSDPA rather than the JUIX software of the slower V8 model. Other changes to the MING for a domestic release are still unknown but point to a release through AT&T. [via BGR]
