A Motorola Q9h was recently leaked with an updated version of Windows Mobile, a version 6.1. It includes a number of new features including a new home screen similar to the one seen on T-Mobile's Shadow, threaded text messaging and contact search in the messaging "To:" field, as well as copy and paste of text. It was recently revealed that Microsoft would deliver an update for Windows Mobile to manufacturers in the first quarter of 2008, and is likely that this leak is an early version of what Microsoft is preparing.
This is the best thing I could have read first thing in the morning. Threaded text messaging! So any chance this will be available as an update to the windows mobile 6 phone i alraedy have? I really don't want to have to buy an entire new device just to get this.
It depends on your provider if they offer it for an sofeware upgrade. Tmobile offered WM6 upgrade for the dash for free. If your carrier doesn't offer it there will be other places you should be able to get it.
