According to sources cited by the Wall Street Journal, Microsoft will announce the next version of its Windows Phone platform at Mobile World Congress next week in Barcelona. The Journal's sources say, "The operating system sports a revamped user interface that resembles the look of Microsoft's Zune HD music player and is designed for devices with touch-sensing screens." No more details about the OS were shared. Microsoft only recently admitted to the existence of WinMo 6.5.3, a stop-gap between WinMo 7 and WinMo 6.5, which was introduced in October 2009. WinMo 6.5.3 hasn't officially reached the market yet.

2) Slap on another layer of pig lipstick.

Let's hope if nothing else they at least add in a decent web browser (highly unlikely, Windows 7 doesn't even get one) decent media player (likely), sy...
In all honesty, I disagree. Windows may not have a trillion fart apps, and for that I am actually glad.

For example, WMWifiRouter. Every single WinMo device I've had since the HTC 6800 has been a walking WiFi hotspot for my laptop or PMP. Never had...
