    LG and Microsoft sitting in a tree, w-o-r-k-i-n-g (together on cellphone development)

    Tap tap revolution: WinMo 6.5

    Like lipstick on a pig here comes WinMo 6.5, the next amazing interface from everyone's favorite mobile software company. I could go the "Looks like iPhone" route, but I won't.

    HP wants everyone to know, via a press release, that the company is supporting the recently announced Windows Mobile 6.5. Details? Yeah, right. It seems that HP simply needed something to pass along to us media types with the hopes that we take the bate and post it. We bit, but only in good humor.

    Well, look at that: A marketplace icon. There have been rumors circulating that Microsoft would unveil a Windows Mobile application marketplace sometime soon and even possibly at MWC next week, but these screenshots are the first evidence of its existence. We'll hold off on calling the Marketplace official or confirmed, but there it is. The icon is sitting smack dab in the center of the latest… Read More
