Motorola Passes on Windows Mobile 6.5

Ouch, when Motorola passes on you, things must be really bad.

Today, Motorola's Christy Wyatt said that Motorola would be waiting for a next generation version of Windows Mobile before developing a new product for the platform. Instead, the company is focusing on "two strategic platforms"—one of them confirmed to be Android.

But wow, WinMo getting turned down by Motorola is pretty much the equivalent of asking the school's most shunned female outcast to the dance, only to learn that she'd prefer to sit in misery at home rather than dance in public agony with you. [phone scoop via MobileCrunch]
