[APRIL FOOLS] Microsoft Announces Classic Mode for Windows Phone 7 Series

Posted by Darius Wey in "Windows Phone Software" @ 02:00 AM

Die-hard Pocket PC fans, rejoice! Microsoft has just announced that come launch day, all Windows Phone 7 Series devices will be able to download Classic Mode from the Windows Phone Marketplace, an app that will allow you to run older apps designed for Windows Mobile 6.5.3 and earlier. The company has stated that it's primarily a virtualization layer, much like what the Windows XP Mode and Virtual PC combo is on Windows 7. So, if you've been lamenting the thought of your favourite app not making it on to Windows Phone 7 Series, lament no longer!
