Microsoft unveils Windows Mobile 6.5 phones and app store

Posted by David Hunter at 2:47 PM ET.

As expected, Microsoft and its partners today unveiled the first Windows Mobile 6.5 phones as well as the Windows Marketplace for Mobile applications store (formerly codenamed Skymarket):

Today at Mobile World Congress 2009, Microsoft Corp. CEO Steve Ballmer along with key mobile partners, HTC, LG and Orange, unveiled new Windows phones featuring new user-friendly software and services. The next generation of Windows phones will be based on Windows Mobile 6.5 and feature a new user interface and a richer browsing experience. In addition, Windows phones will feature two new services: My Phone, to sync text messages, photos, video, contacts and more to the Web; and Windows Marketplace for Mobile, a new marketplace that will provide direct-to-phone mobile applications and can be accessed from both the phone and the Web.

The phones include the LG-GM7300 which currently runs 6.1, but will add a Windows Mobile 6.5 version and the new HTC’s Touch Diamond 2 and Touch Pro 2 which will be upgradeable to 6.5. So when will Windows Mobile 6.5 actually appear on a phone? All Microsoft will say is that "the new Windows phones are expected to be available in the second half of 2009."
