Microsoft holds an annual event called Mobis where Windows Mobile enthusiasts from around the world come to get briefed on what is hot, new and even get a sneak preview of what we will be looking forward to in 2008. Windows Mobile 7, code name Photon, was not shown, but an update to Windows Mobile 6 was demonstrated under NDA and it impressed quite a lot of people.
Ryan Block from Engadget said: “Our first impressions: very slick, and has a lot of features that just about any WinMo user will agree is way overdue.”
Judie Lipsett from Gear Diary said: “We saw it running on current hardware, it looked freaking impressive, I want it NOW…and that’s all I’m going to say about that.”
Matt Miller from ZD|Net has a full list of the attendees and links to their respective blogs over at his blog.
