Windows Mobile 6.5’s Shortcomings

Microsoft introduced Windows Mobile 6.5 at Mobile World Congress this week; Engadget’s Joshua Topolsky runs down the list of reasons it’s disappointing. Still no support for capacitive touch screens, for example. But I think the most damning thing is that it’s not even set to ship until the end of the year. What seems so odd is not just that Microsoft is way behind the state-of-the-art in mobile OSes, but that they don’t seem set to catch up any time soon.
