It's coming: WinMo update 6.5 shows up for the XPERIA X1

x11_thumbWindows mobile has had a hard time of it of late, what with the Blackberry and iPhone being so popular. The current version, WinMo 6.1, is at the long coming end of its lifespan. The followup, 6.5, looks pretty great – but what about handsets already running 6.1?

One by one, handsets are getting the upgrade treatment – at least, the high-end ones are. Toshiba just announced that the TG01 would be getting 6.5’d, and now it looks like the Sony Ericsson XPERIA X1 will be following suite. A ROM hacker over at XDA-devs recently got their hands on a “REAL OFFICIAL” 6.5 ROM for the X1, and it’s looking pretty sharp. All we really have are some screen shots, but we’ll keep you posted as more information becomes available.
