Windows Mobile 6.5 Prototype Phone Stolen
A prototype phone running Microsoft’s new Windows Mobile 6.5 operating system was reported stolen.
Mere days after it was unveiled to the public for the first time, a phone loaded with an upcoming version of Microsoft’s operating system for “Windows Phones” was stolen right out of the pocket of a Telstra executive. The prototype HTC smartphone was loaded with Windows Mobile 6.5, which features an improved user interface and a much friendlier user experience. DailyTech covered it earlier this week, and it has since met with a generally positive welcome.
The theft took place at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2009, which was held at Barcelona this week. The MWC is an annual convention where the latest mobile and wireless products and trends are being showcased by device makers and Telcos. Other handsets shown with Windows Mobile 6.5 at the MWC include devices from phone maker LG. It is not known whether the pinched device is an HTC Touch Diamond 2 or the Touch Pro 2.
