    More about Windows Mobile 6.5

    The latest version of Microsoft’s operating system for high-end phones isn’t a major upgrade. The most significant changes are included in the Professional edition.

    This version of Windows Mobile 6.5 is more fingertip friendly, with many on-screen elements enlarged so users can select them without a stylus. Windows Mobile 6.5 also has more of a focus on consumers, as the Today Screen has been modified to include items like a music player and photo viewer.

    Both the Standard and the Pro editions come with a new version of Internet Explorer, and have access to Microsoft’s new on-device software store.
