Windows Mobile 6.5.3 – Quietly Released
After getting spanked by almost every respected tech / blogger with the release of Windows Mobile 6.5, it seems like Microsoft has decided to keep a low profile with the almost confidential release of Windows Mobile 6.5.3.
Version 6.5.3 has already quietly been released to manufacturing in December of 2009, according to a reliable source. There will be no announcement of this version. It will simply show up on shipping products whenever manufacturers are ready.
You’ve already seen plenty of videos of leaked 6.5.3 ROMs with the Start menu at the bottom, the thinner notifications bar, and user-arrange-able Start menu items. It’s being billed as an even smaller upgrade to to 6.x than 6.5 was even though many of the UI changes look pretty significant to us.
