Microsoft set to release Windows Mobile 6.5 next month

It looks like we finally have an official release date for Windows Mobile 6.5. Microsoft took to their corporate blog today and made the announcement that the mobile operating system will be released on May 11th.

This date makes sense and syncs up with the Microsoft TechEd 2009 conference, which will serve as a demonstration of the new operating system for developers and other people involved in the tech industry.

There will also be special seminars on various aspects of Windows Mobile 6.5 including the gestures and touch interface. The newest version of Microsoft's mobile platform is intended to keep them afloat in the world of handhelds where touch UIs have become so commonplace.
