Windows Mobile updates

Over at, there's some rumours about Windows Mobile 7 which Microsoft will unveil at the Mobile World Congress. Will it be true the rumour about no multitasking in WM7/WM phone? No muliti-masking?

WMExperts has done a nice recap of the latest Windows Mobile 6.5.3:

Ease of Use
  • Capacitive touchscreen support
  • Platform to enable multi-touch
  • Touch controls throughout system (no need for stylus)
  • Consistent Navigation
  • Horizontal scroll bar replaces tabs (think settings>system>about screen)
  • Magnifier brings touch support to legacy applications
  • Simplified out-of-box experience with fewer steps
  • Drag and drop icons on Start Screen
Browser Performance
  • Page load time decreased
  • Memory management improved
  • Pan & flick gestures smoothed
  • Zoom & rotation speed increased
Quality and Customer Satisfaction
  • Updated runtime tools (.NET CF 3.5, SQL CE 3.1)
  • Arabic read/write document support
  • Watson (error reporting) improvements and bug fixes
But, the bombshell apparently came from have a looksy and tell me what you think...

I may not use Windows Mobile 7/Windows Phone if the rumours were true and my Touch Pro goes belly up.

Say it ain't so Microsoft!
