The original story's been pulled, but pocketinfo.nl had an interesting rumor about a possible Windows Mobile 6.1 coming next February at 3GSM. The supposed new features are a "carousel" UI where you scroll left and right for features, as well as other small fixes. There shouldn't be anything spectacular in a point release, and any mindblowing changes to Windows Mobile will be coming in Windows Mobile 7 sometime possibly late next year. In any case, file this under interesting rumor. [Pocketinfo via WMExperts]
@hughjass: I totally agree. I'm sick of hearing people whine about not getting WM6 upgrades. It's a very minor incremental upgrade anyway. And every time you flash an upgrade like this, a percentage of phones get bricked - it's unavoidable. So tell me, why would Verizon bother to spend the engineering and customer support costs to offer a free OS upgrade to the tiny percentage of smartphone owners who even give a rats ass about it (those of us on these forums that is)? Besides, do you think Microsoft is offering free WM6 licenses to Verizon? I think not.
If you were a Verizon shareholder you sure wouldn't be advocating upgrades - it's a huge money looser.
