Windows Mobile 6.5 upgrades hit T-Mobile today

By Tim Conneally, Betanews

When Windows Mobile 6.5 launched four months ago Microsoft listed eight Windows Mobile 6.1 devices that would be upgradeable to 6.5. Unfortunately, at the time they were all listed as “date not yet available.”

Today, T-Mobile announced that the Windows Mobile 6.5 upgrades are available now for the HTC Touch Pro2 and HTC Dash 3G (a.k.a., HTC Rhodium).

Since this is a major upgrade, installing the new Windows Mobile ROM requires the user to download an update utility and software package to his PC and install it on the phone via USB. Fortunately, the new upgrades come just ahead of Mobile World Congress, when Microsoft is expected to unveil another update to the Windows Phone platform.
