WinMo 6.5.3 Is The New Classic

Posted by Ed Hansberry in "Windows Phone News" @ 04:00 PM

This is interesting. With the launch of Windows Phone 7 sometime this year, apparently Windows Mobile 6.5.3 will continue to exist and according to the IStartedSomething blog, it will be called Windows Phone Classic.

One thing I haven't seen is how Windows Phone 7 will support non-touchscreen devices, if it will at all. Perhaps Windows Phone Classic is the way to keep low end keyboard centric devices relevant.

"Opera brings you the best Internet experience on any device, from computers and cell phones to portable media players and game consoles. Opera Mobile, first launched in 2000, and with over 100 million installations since 2004, was the first to bring the full Web to the small mobile screen. Opera Mobile for feature phones and smartphones has pioneered and set the standard in mobile browsing, supporting the latest technologies and receiving industry acclaim. Today, Opera continues to provide the best mobile Web experience with the first beta of Opera Mobile 9.5. Opera Mobile is the answer to the demands of Web fans everywhere.

It's finally here! The public beta of Opera Mobile 9.5 is now available for Windows Mobile Classic/Professional (Pocket PC) devices (sorry, Standard (Smartphone) users).

WILLCOM's Colourful 03 On Display

Vibrant colours are a rarity in the Windows Mobile world. If you're lucky, you may find some multi-coloured HTC Touch devices on the street, but other than that, our devices are mostly shades of grey. Enter WILLCOM. You've heard of them before. They were the folks who delivered the W-ZERO3. Now, they've combined Windows Mobile with hot pink, lime green, and bright gold to deliver the 03. And the specs aren't too shabby. There's a 3" 800 x 480 touchscreen, a touch-sensitive pad that switches between numeric keypad mode and D-pad mode, a slide-out QWERTY keyboard, a PXA270 processor, 128MB RAM, 256MB of ROM, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, infrared, a 2.0-megapixel camera, a TV tuner, and a microSD slot, with Windows Mobile 6.1 Classic to keep it all going. Wait, "Classic"? What's the catch? The 03 takes a W-SIM, which means it doesn't have to rely on the cellular radio support offered in "Professional". Oh, and W-SIM also means you won't be seeing it outside of Japan anytime soon. Ah, shucks. Read more...
