"Microsoft today unveiled a new generation of phones from leading manufacturers and mobile operators that offer an intuitive user interface, powerful Web browsing, and access to an online library of downloadable services and applications. Windows® phones - a new brand for phones running Microsoft's Windows Mobile operating system - are now available in retail stores worldwide in a broad range of styles and prices. The new phones were shown at press events in New York, hosted by Robbie Bach, president of Microsoft's Entertainment & Devices Division, and in Paris, where Microsoft chief executive officer Steve Ballmer showed off the new Windows phones. They also announced the availability of two key services platforms for the new phones: My Phone and Windows Marketplace for Mobile. My Phone is a free service that helps people back up and manage photos, applications and other content from their phone or PC, as well as restore information in the event of a lost phone. Windows Marketplace for Mobile is an online library of business and leisure mobile applications - as well as games - that customers can buy and download directly to their phones."
Ladies and Gentlemen, it's official - Windows Mobile (the operating system) is now at version 6.5, and Windows Phones (the devices) are available. Now let's just hope all of us Dash 3G & Touch Pro 2 (As well as other devices) owners get upgrades in a timely manner!
