Microsoft was all set to launch the next generation of the Windows Mobile OS in a few days but have unexpectedly lifted the embargo prior to the official announcement. Major Windows Mobile enthusiast sites have jumped at the chance to tell us their impressions of the new OS and I thought it a good idea to have a roundup of who is saying what so far. Speaking of roundup, Mobile Gadgeteer and MobileTechRoundup cohost Matt Miller has been secretly using WM 6 for quite some time and has posted his impressions along with dozens of screen shots of the new WM offering, and his article is a good place to start. Here’s a list of other sites worth checking out:
- Pocket PC Thoughts impressions; screenshots
- Modern Nomads
- the unwired
There are so many new features to Windows Mobile 6 that are being reported it’s probably best to start with the reviews above and gather your own impressions. I personally can’t wait for HTML support in email, and I love the Vista-like UI.
