We reached HTC, which had no (further) comment on the matter, but everything we've seen about 7 so far kind of leads us to believe that 7-based devices launching before next year's Mobile World Congress sounds a bit premature, even if that doesn't necessarily jibe with the MWg roadmap (which promised devices possibly even later this year)."

The possibility of have having a brand spanking new Windows Mobile 7 device in my hands by my birthday is pretty exciting - even if the thought of waiting until next year for Microsoft’s new mobile operating system is a little bit daunting. While I can completely understand Microsoft's recent stance at keeping every new product with a '7' in its name super hush-hush, I still wish the Powers That Be would throw us a bone and let us know how development is going. To be honest, I don't even care about feature XYZ; I just want a little reassurance from Microsoft that they're still in the game. Is that so much to ask?
