The launch of
Windows Mobile 7 may get delayed even further
, according to Taiwanese website Digitimes. Its sources have revealed that Microsoft may push the launch to 2011. Another delay will leave the Windows Mobile platform with very little chance of drawing level with other platforms, leaving its rivals ample time to stretch their technological lead even further.
The report claims that Microsoft will further prolong its longer-than-expected countdown to Windows Mobile 7 by unveiling another minor update in the form of Windows Mobile 6.6 (codenamed Maldives) at the Mobile World Congress in February. The minor update will support capacitive touchscreens and help Microsoft bide its time. If the report is correct, then MWC 2010 may not even feature a fleeting glimpse of Windows Mobile 7.
