Windows Mobile 7 to get some stage time at MWC 2010
Windows Mobile 6.5, the current version of Microsoft’s operating system, has been on the market for just about 3 months now. It’s not a secret however that the industry is by no means thrilled by WM6.5 and is now looking forward to version 7, which is supposed to really take the platform to the next level.

Unexpectedly, Robbie Back, Microsoft Entertainment and Devices Division President, has announced at an analyst briefing this week that Windows Mobile 7 will get some stage time at this year’s Mobile World Congress event, so we will actually get to see a demo of the much-anticipated software. In addition, the official has apparently not missed the occasion to say that WM7 will “set the bar forward not in (just) an evolutionary way”. We can only hope this will turn out true, but until we’ve got some solid proof, we’ll have to content with what we have – an aging platform that’s in a desperate need of an all-round redesign.
