Yet more to-ing and fro-ing about the Windows Mobile 7 launch, this time with Digitimes pointing at a Mobile World Congress announcement of an end-of-2010 launch. It's nothing we haven't heard before, but they're piling up thick 'n fast now.

HTC hasn't been too sure on whether the HD2 will be upgraded with WinMo 7, but there's talk of a new HTC phone in town—the Obsession, or Diamond3, which Boy Genius Report believes will be offered on AT&T and T-Mobile. LG is also readying a phone for the big Microsoft push, called the Apollo—which WMPowerUser and Let's Go Digital are claiming will have an enormous amount of spec.

It's all pretty dubious, to say the least—a WinMo phone with a 10-megapixel camera and 720p video recording? Let's Go Digital has published a picture of the supposed device, which looks just like the Viewty Smart running Windows Mobile 6.5. I honestly don't know what to think about Windows 7 anymore, just make it all go away while I lie down and whimper for a while. [Digitimes]

Don't rush it, Microsoft. I mean, if you need an extra couple of years, we can wait. Really. I will probably be looking for a new phone in 2012 or so and surely I will consider whatever you release that year, or a year after, or a decade after that. It isn't like any competitor will release any new products before the end of the year. So, think it over. This technology stuff stays pretty stagnant for a long time.
