Windows Mobile 6.1
Accompanying the launch of the AT&T version of the Motorola Q9 is Windows Mobile 6.1 Standard, which introduces important changes to the Microsoft operating system. Among the most important of these is the ability to copy and paste; while theoretically simple, the feature has long been absent from Windows Mobile, and may ease entering complicated information such as names and e-mail addresses. Users can also perform domain enrolling under Settings, and take advantage of a new home screen where users pan left and right to check call and message notifcations.
Messaging has been improved in its own right, with threaded SMS conversations, new text input settings, and automatic contact entry as in Windows Mobile Professional. The OS should, finally, support auto-rotation and a higher, more dynamic range of resolutions, but this has not been confirmed. [via Boy Genius Report]
