It looks like we got a little too excited when a poorly-worded post covering Windows Mobile 6.5’s cameo at Tech Ed 2009 hit Microsoft’s Windows Mobile blog. According to Microsoft, the post was misinterpreted and 6.5 will not be launching on the 11th — instead, Microsoft will just be demoing some Windows Mobile 6.5 features/functionality and discussing 6.5’s future. Sad as it may be, we’ll all just have to continue to wait as Redmond gets all of its ducks in a row. The post on the Windows Mobile blog has been updated for clarification sake.
