Windows Mobile 6.5 Demo'd On HTC Touch Diamond2.

Windows Mobile 6.5 On HTC Touch Diamond2.
Microsoft has recently given an walk through of the Redmond's new Windows Phone operating system, Windows Mobile 6.5, running on a touch screen HTC Touch Diamond2. If you remember a Touch Diamond II with Windows Mobile 6.5 was lost in February this year, by Telstra CEO Sol Trujillo
From the video, it seems everyone is happy about the new windows mibile 6.5 and I like the new interface which everyone call Zune-esque. But I think it is unique and advanced that Microsoft now can call it even the wiPhone, if they wanted to.
The interface carries 24 bit icons that replaces the folder like buttons on older Windows mobile and available through out the menu functions.
The Market Place for Windows Phone (wiPhone) was demonstrated as well and is similar to the iTunes App Store for iPhone and iPod Touch, a source of controversial Google Voice app rejection.
I am planing to explore the wiPhone store, soon as I get my new wiPhone, I think it will be one of the HTC phones, like Touch Diamond II.
I think the new sync for wiPhone going to be a hit. The software is capable of uploading a mobile's contents up to the cloud via a Windows Live account. A user / owner of the wiPhone could remotely wipe the phone in the event of a loss or theft. The replacement phone will be populated with all the users SMS, emails and contact, seamlessly.

The story is that the new wiPhone OS will be out before Christmas and most probably together with the WIndows 7!
Way to go Microsoft.
