Good news for Windows Mobile phone users today! First, we learn that the Redmond giant will launch the first Windows Mobile 6.5 handsets on October 6th and then AT&T comes forth with a very cool offer: free Wi-Fi for Windows Mobile phone users.
Microsoft has also announced that it’ll partner with carriers like AT&T, Sprint or Verizon in the US, or phone makers like HP, LG, Samsung or HTC in North America, in order to launch the new Windows Mobile 6.5 devices. In Europe, the Redmond giant will work with Orange, Vodafone, Deutsche Telekom, HTC, Samsung, Sony Ericsson and Toshiba, while in Latin America, they’ll partner with TIM Brazil, HTC, Samsung and LG.
Also, in Asia Pacific, carriers NTT DoCoMo, Softbank Mobile Corp, SK Telecom and Telstra, plus phone makers like HTC, LG, Acer, Samsung, Toshiba and SE will play their part in the launch of the new devices.
