Windows Mobile 6.5.1 is looking more promising
It's becoming more evident that Microsoft is slowly grasping the advantages of using the finger as opposed to a stylus. Even though Windows Mobile 6.5 is still being slowly embraced by consumers, they are already moving forward with their next build – WM 6.5.1. Sure it'd be nice to see Microsoft jump full force and focus their attention on WM 7, but gradual steps are needed to really fine tune things out. From the screen shots we've been seeing, which are rumored to be from WM 6.5.1, large finger friendly sized buttons are becoming more noticeable as opposed to the cramp styles we've been accustomed to see in the past. The age of the stylus may soon be behind us if the direction that Microsoft is heading with the new look points true. Even on resistive touch screens, these large icons and text will make the experience a bit more satisfying. There's still some gap between 6.5 and 7, so the latest build should provide a nice transition in the mean time. With even news about the possibility of Zune integration down the road, Microsoft can really perform a jab on its competitors.

I would love to see what windows can do on a capacitive screen...out of curiosity. I still prefer my stylus for control

HD2 is coming to the US soon. And according to the videos, it does just fine.

HTC has also patented a stylus that is for capacitive screens... so if really need one you can also buy it.

dont any body really get it you can make windows mobile look like any thing you can put your "i have to have sombodys els to make it look good for me roms" look like and act like what ever you want. Grow a freaking brain and go into the damn program and change it. Android lookes like android i phone looks like iphone but windows can look like both. I dont get what is the big deal. The best phone would probably be an i phone with windows mobile on it. The i phone is great but i really dont want it. its too bulky. Can you change an i phone no you cant. Its kinda Stupid that there is not phones that compare to a year old lap top yet. I mean the dual cor 2.2 gh processer with two gb of ram and a dedicated memmory for video Should be reality by know. Hint if not plugged inrun one processer or less memmory to keep battory good. Its really weird.

I agree with what i can understand from your writing. But there is no excuse that a phone cannot have at least 512mb of ram. HTC HD2 seems like the best phone for now.. but why not more memory? 480 to 512 is not that much.
