Windows Phones

Since we're in the Philippines, we don't really get a lot of commercials about mobile phones. Well, in other parts of the world, Microsoft has been aggressively marketing their new New windows mobile phones. This is because they've recently released their Windows Mobile 6.5 OS.

The new Windows Mobile 6.5 OS hopes to answer some of the limitations of 6.1. WinMo 6.5 now has improved UI which makes it easier for you to navigate your Windows phones using your fingers instead of just the stylus.

In the Philippines, devices running Windows Mobile 6.5 include the HTC Diamond2, which will require a ROM Update for those who bought this phone early. Samsung Omnia 2 is also Windows Mobile 6.5 capable although I haven't heard anything yet whether Samsung has officially released their WinMo 6.5 ROM update.

Acer also has some new mobile phones running Windows Mobile 6.5 but the latter is a little slow and I don't think a lot of people here would opt for an Acer when they could buy Samsungs or HTCs. Of course, Acer's windows mobile phones are a lot cheaper.
