It looks like WM6 may eventually come to many more mobile devices that expected. It also leads me to think that it may be a less than painful upgrade process and put some new life into some older equipment… assuming they could run WM5 easily
It looks like Microsoft’s making it a little bit easier for manufacturers to release updates to Windows Mobile 6. The company is giving free licenses to any vendors who issue upgrades for their devices. Just because the license is free doesn’t mean manufacturers won’t charge the consumer. Customizing Windows Mobile 6 for each device is still a lot of work.
But does that mean we’ll see updates issued for Dell Axim or HP iPaq models anytime soon? I wouldn’t hold my breath. But it’s possible.
