Windows Mobile 7 closer than expected?

A finding by istartedsomething.com leads us to the possibility that Windows Mobile 7 is very close to release with hardware certifications being handed out...

http://www.istartedsomething.com/200...dows-mobile-7/

Since we know Windows Mobile 7 won't be upgradable (due to leaked advances like Tegra level 3D support) and the release is less than a year away (MS claims early 2010 still)...

I'm not feeling bad that I'm skipping the TP2 for something a little better coming soon... What are you thoughts on this tidbit?

If it's that close (and I doubt it), then yes, waiting makes sense to me too.

Re: Windows Mobile 7 closer than expected?

Seems to me that M$ should be aware of how late to the game they are.

I think its somewhat critical that they get WM7 out before the next iphone. I'm predicting June 2010 as a target date. Once it gets delayed, I'm thinking late Q3 or Q4 2010.

Re: Windows Mobile 7 closer than expected?

you would think, but it seems like every time we predict when something is going to come out you have to add like 6 months to a year to when it actually comes out.

Re: Windows Mobile 7 closer than expected?

I think tpro 2 will get the windows mobile 7 upgrade
htc has literally flagshipped as well as stated the new iteration was upgradable to windows 7

thats weird because everything I hear about the required hardware specs for wm7 shows the pro2 can't get it.

Re: Windows Mobile 7 closer than expected?

here's a solution: pay full price for a tp2 when it comes out and then when the new winmo 7 device come out, use your upgrade. that's what i am going to do!!!

or keep your tp1 that has the same specs as the tp2, or keep my diamond, spend the $500 on rent or sushi (i'd go with the sushi) then get a firestone or a leo with wm7 with the upgrade.

that Leo looks so sweet, I wish I could get one. It's like my diamond but perfected as a ppc wtih a 4.3" screen, capacitive, 1ghz snapdragon etc. I wish they'd hurry up on the release so I don't have to wait a trillion years...
