WinMo Wrap: New Version Unveiled

The week marches on and today being Saturday means it is time to recap the recent happenings in the world of Windows Mobile. Microsoft (s msft) presented another interim release of Windows Mobile this week. Version 6.5.3 is not the big version 7 that enthusiasts have been waiting for, but it adds OS support for multitouch for the first time. WinMo 6.5.3 made an appearance in the new Aspen announced by Sony Ericsson.

China Mobile made a very strange claim that its Android phones will run Windows Mobile apps. The company claims its Open Mobile 2.0 will run Windows Mobile apps, but didn’t give any details on how that works or what apps fall under this claim. Open Mobile supposedly runs the “Windows Mobile API”, but it is not clear if this claim is legitimate or how it might work.

WinMoSquare is coming for those who can’t wait any longer for a native FourSquare app for the platform. It is being developed by Touchality using FourSquare’s public APIs. You must send an email to get your WinMo 6.1 or 6.5 phone (touchscreen mandatory) included in the beta program for WinMoSquare.
