Win Mobile 6 Update Soon

Microsoft has provided companies a preview of a significant update to Windows Mobile at the cellphone-oriented Mobius conference, say reports from the event. Though guests have been asked not to leak specific information about the software, it should be an upgrade to Windows Mobile 6 rather than a completely new version but will still have tangible new features and other upgrades compared to the original version, which launched early this year and has remained largely unchanged since.

This upgrade is not expected to be ready for loading on cellphones until the start of 2008 and may not filter into production devices until the spring or summer, Mobius visitors note. However, the lack of dramatic changes should also allow the software to install on existing smartphones and may be available as a low-cost or free download to current users instead of a total replacement, as with Windows Mobile 5. An official announcement is expected by early next year at a show such as 3GSM. [via the unwired]
