It's Official: Windows Mobile 7 to Come in 2010
Windows Mobile 6.5 devices may not be available until the fourth quarter of this year, but now many users may skip it altogether with version 7 on its way.
"We've made a nice release announcement last week of Windows Mobile 6.5," Ballmer said, according to a Microsoft transcript. "We've got Windows Mobile 7 coming next year. We're getting more and more synergy with Windows, so the browser improvements, et cetera, should be quite rapid."
Ballmer made the announcement at a strategic update summit Tuesday in New York.
