    Nice pic of the AT&T TP2! I love the numbers/dialpad on the AT&T versions. Do you guys like the dedicated numbers row or the embedded ones?

    Personally, I would prefer another row with the numbers on top, but there are of course drawbacks for that. I sometime need to use numbers during texting, but that is pretty rare. Without another row for the number, the keyboard are more spreaded out and great for texting. So, lol, I kind of want it and not. Okay, I changed my mind and I like the TP2 the way it is :p

    Oh God, Please Tell Me This Isn't Microsoft's Plan For Windows Mobile - windows mobile 7 - Gizmodo

    Windows Mobile 6.5: Due October, pretty much as is. Windows Mobile 7: Coming at the end of next year. Both: On sale at the same time, marketed in a bizarre two-tiered way. If this rumor isn't false, it should be.

    From Digitimes:

    Microsoft is expected to officially launch Windows Mobile 6.5 on October 1, 2009 and add an upgrade version with a touch interface in February 2010, the sources indicated citing Microsoft roadmap.

    Despite being the most predictable part of the story, this is the most disturbing—it'll be a year from now before Microsoft has a true competitor for webOS, iPhone OS or Android. Lame, but totally possible. Then there's that "upgrade version"—could that be Cashmere? Anyhoo, this is when the story goes from unfortunate to bizarre:

    [A] dual-platform strategy will allow Microsoft to compete with Android-based platform using Windows Mobile 6.5 and also compete with iPhones leveraging Windows Mobile 7, the sources asserted.

    Since Windows Mobile 7 is meant to be a fairly clean break from the ancient 5.x and 6.x legacy, you'd expect it to simply step aside for the new guy. The plan, though, is apparently to leave 6.5 in a sort of Palm OS deadzone, sold on less desirable hardware than the company's flagship OS, and at a lower cost. The premise is bizarre, since Windows Mobile 6.5 can't compete with Android now, much less whatever Android looks like in 2010.

    Ina at CNET is tentatively optimistic about this plan, but I see a failure of imagination: At this rate, 6.5 will be a pathetic orphan, and 7? One human year equals about 20 cellphones years, so this thing had better be pretty great.

    --------------------------

    I am not the only one who thinks buying any winmo phone before WM7 is a mistake.

    True but if you look at the history of MS and their WinMo releases, they been always lagged behind. It will be at least 1 more year for the release of WinMo 7. But I'm betting that it will drag onward to 1st or 2nd quarter of 2011. Anyway, everyone got their opinion on stuff and would rather wait or not on technological advances out there.. To me, if I waited, it would be like having an Apache (10/2005) and skipped the Mogul and wait for the release of Touch Pro (11/2008).
