Windows Mobile 7 Might on Phones in April 2010


Windows Mobile 7 would head our way in 2010, as Motorola’s CEO Sanjay Jha slipped the info during the company’s conference call regarding the financial results for last year. While Microsoft hasn’t said anything about the future releases of its operating system, some sources close to the company’s plans seem to have said that the development of the platform has been accelerated.
According to the news on the Web, Huang might not just be fluffing up his resume. The timeframe seems about right for WinMo 7 to hit beta testing since it’s been in development for years and there’d been a search for internal testers in the recent months. The timeline Ars lays out based on this information is that testers would truly be seeing the OS in November of this year, while we would see it out in the wild in April of 2010. The dates are loose and based on rumors, but when isn’t that the case?
The way I see it is that WinMo 7 is pretty much Microsoft’s last hope for a decent mobile OS, so I certainly hope this is true, shortening the time we’ll have to endure Windows Mobile 6.5.


As for Windows Mobile 7, the news stated that it should reach testers in November this year, while the first devices to sport the OS should be unveiled in April 2010.
