Windows Mobile 6.5 coming soon? According to a Microsoft Developer Network post, Microsoft is planning to "launch" Windows Mobile 6.5 next month at the Tech Ed 2009 event.
The event runs from May 11th to May 15th, but it is unknown what the company means by "launch."

The operating system was debuted in February at the Mobile World Congress but Microsoft did admit the system was not in its final version.

There is also a chance there will be some sort of device launched alongside the final version of the operating system but there is no concrete evidence yet of such a phone.

We will keep you updated.

ROFL! yes, 2099, exactly.

Well, hopefully though, they will have a lot better touch screen support in this edition. I'm getting really annoyed by my HTC Diamond.

Far as i can see WM6.5 is just a re-hash of 6 with a new program listing (hexagons) lock screen and a new today app oh and a new version of PIE (pocket internet explorer) that brings it some place closer to an opera like browsing experience.

Other than that .... not much is new.

xda developers have had betas for ages:
