Alright, so Ryan and I are kicking it here in Seattle at Mobius, Microsoft’s invite-only conference about Windows Mobile and mobile devices (don’t worry, we paid our own way, we don’t accept junkets). Not a ton of news or product announcements, but we did just get a sneak peek at Photon, the codename for the next version of Windows Mobile.
The new OS is still “years” away, but the one thing they would confirm is that they’re finally going to unify the Smartphone and Pocket PC platforms, something they were supposedly going to do with Windows Mobile 5.0.
Please note: Windows Mobile PHOTON still is years away (or so claims Microsoft in order not to hinder sales of Windows Mobile 5.0 devices) and before PHOTON there will be Windows Mobile CROSSBOW released probably as Windows Mobile 5.0 Second Edition.
