Windows Mobile 6.1 Announced

Windows Mobile 6.1 Today Microsoft announced the release of Windows Mobile 6.1 – coming soon to a mobile operator and device near you. Engadget’s got the scoop on it with some screen shots.

The cool news (in my opinion) is in regards to the web browser:

“The new version of Internet Explorer Mobile adds the ability to easily view full-screen Web pages and multimedia on the Web with a smartphone. By taking advantage of Internet Explorer 6 technologies and supporting established and upcoming industry standards such as H.264, Adobe Flash and Microsoft Silverlight, the updated Internet Explorer Mobile gives people a rich mobile Internet experience. The update will be available to mobile phone partners in the third quarter of 2008, with the first Windows Mobile phones using the new version expected to be available by the end of 2008.”
