Ouch. I knew I wasn’t the only one who wasn’t too fond of Windows Mobile 6.5, but I’m just a lowly blogger; when your hardware partners start bailing, its gotta sting a little.
At their Android ecosystem event this morning, Motorola’s VP of Software and Ecosystem Christy Wyatt disclosed that Moto’s relationship with Windows Mobile was temporarily going on hold. While the company will be focusing on “two strategic platforms” when it comes to smartphones (Android is one, obviously – beyond that, your guess is as good as ours), they’ll be waiting for Microsoft’s next platform release before sparking things up again.
While that means we definitely shouldn’t expect any WinMo 6.5 phones from Motorola, it’s also sounding like any Moto handsets currently running WinMo 6.1 aren’t going to see any upgrades.
