A new version scheme is also introduced:

  • Windows Mobile for Smartphones - Windows Mobile Standard
  • Windows Mobile for Pocket PCs - Windows Mobile Classic
  • Windows Mobile for Pocket PC Phones - Windows Mobile Professional

It's not a matter of "if", but "when" will WM5 users be able to upgrade to 6? Not to mention how.

It will only become possible if the manufacturer of your pda or pda/phone decides to offer a software update. Go to the website of your pda manufacturer & check there. For example, a WM6 update has already been announced for some pda/phones, such as T-Mobile's Dash.
