Ok, I suppose its appropriate to mention this again. On upgrading Windows Mobile.
1) Based on leaked / provided information, processor wise, WM6.6 should work with anything that runs 6.1 smoothly.
2) Unfortunately, the info does indicate only models with the designated RAM size can run 6.5.
3) Microsoft does not update phones. Manufacturers do.
4) If you're using HTC, they tend to be quick releasing new ROMs.
5) If your model is not listed, check the major WM modding communities for custom ROMs.
6) Microsoft's statement on "only in new phones" is not true. Any new phone (assuming having the specs required) will definitely get a WM6.5 update. HTC will be pissed if its HTC Touch HD doesn't get one. SE will be pissed in the X1 doesn't get one. Etc.
Unless the company that provided your phone plans on coming out with an update for you to WinMo 6.5/7, the only way to get it is to hope someone out there is smart enough (and this is usually the case) to rip it off another device and cook a ROM for your device that you can use to update it.
So far, WinMo 6.5 is exclusive to only latest phones. Even some of the latest phones shipping with WinMo 6.1 will not be able to upgrade to 6.5. As a matter of fact, WinMo 6.5 even needs a hardware "windows" key on your mobile. However, things might change in 6-8 months, so far there is absolutely no hope for 6.1 to 6.5 upgrade.
can u upgrade ur windows mobile from 6.1 to 6.5...if yes then in which way...
itz gr8 to c difrnt types of mobs here among all ths luks coollll...
Anonymous, 03 Mar 2009i bet everyone who is saying winmo cannot be upraded to newer version fells pretty silly right... moreYes, Apple is used only by a minority of people. That is because it is not for the masses. Apple makes the best that can be technologically achieved and with all rights protects it as well. I will rather pay a little and use a perfect Mac than download a free copy of Windows full of bugs and viruses.
You know, if you go with the masses you will be like the masses. Why do you think that 96% of the money in the world is owned buy 2% of population?!
Going with the masses is always the safe option but not the prosperous option.
hhh, 03 Mar 2009f**k microsoftMicrosoft and WinMo are the best and I just cant wait for Xperia X2 with WM 7.0
Anonymous, 03 Mar 2009i bet everyone who is saying winmo cannot be upraded to newer version fells pretty silly right... moreYou'd better hope no-one puts something malicious in those pirated ROM's you download e.g. something that sends an SMS to all your contacts containing a link to a site which installs more malicious software.
A botnet of mobile devices would be handy to some.
i bet everyone who is saying winmo cannot be upraded to newer version fells pretty silly right now :) i mean really, do you even think before you speak(type)?
regarding apple OS? com'on, its a software for a very few minority, most of the people in the planet use Windows, apple users would really struggle with compatibility issues with other users. Their monopoly stand is like an iron wall that apple made to isolate themeselves to the rest of the world.
hello guys just wondering do you guys know if the samsung i780 can have a wm7 software version?just upgrade it to wm6.1,do you have links or infos in getting it?how about wm6.5 can i install it on my samsung i780?
My HTC BlueAngel come with WM2003SE, and now it is running with WM 6.1.
It is possible to change, but only for the ones who know how.
Expert, 02 Mar 2009I perfectly agree with that! I was using WinMo before and even I had mastered pretty well it ... moreHi I, I am software developer and also I do not give a sh*t to brand name as well. I actually like apple but that are saying things they do not create them .For example they did not create icons in OS, It was created in Xrocs Labs. Look to their advertisements also, attacking Microsoft name is the main goal. One of the silly Adds is Mac OS X is virus free. Windows is sharing 90% of OS industry, so most of hackers will create the viruses, worms for windows because most of people using it. One last thing Apple will never dominate their OS as long as they sell it with their hardware. By the way ask you friend if she can anything else than Multimedia processing (photoshop , video…..) better than windows . Example (Office is more productive tool than any fancy software in MAC (iwork).
"...you cant update the version of winmo that a phone is using..."
Gee, really? So how did my WinMo 6.0 phone get WinMo 6.1 on it?
Actually, you wrong, you can update your Windows to new version, it is not legal and most of the times the best choice for your device, but anyway it is possible and depends on your exact device!
Anonymous, 01 Mar 2009So how do you buy a license from Microsoft to use a new ROM?
Oh, that's right you have to u... moreI perfectly agree with that! I was using WinMo before and even I had mastered pretty well it was making some problems all the time.
Than I got an iPhone and I was and still am AMAZED how well everything works! And with the endless flow of great applications for it I can say that WinMo is doomed if they don’t do some radical changes and fast!
The point is this: WinMo is made for masses for profit. In the same time Apple makes products also for profit, BUT not just for profit. When they release something, you can be sure that that is top of its range, flawlessly working made by real enthusiast who believes that they will develop the best of the best! That is a huge difference! Look at the PC`s for example. Everybody can buy PC for much less money than an iMac, but the iMac is far more superior than any other Windows PC. I have a friend who is a biology researcher. She does not give a sh**t about brands, but she insists that she can only work on iMac`s! She buys a Macbook Pro, turns it on and NEVER EVER turns it off until 3-4 years pass and she gets a newer one. And her Macbook is NEVER hot! Never! Fast, reliable just as it meant to be! Window is like you make a DIY job. It is rubber and tape, nothing more.
iPhone rules because OSX rules!
MtOXxXIC, 01 Mar 2009by the way, if you just wanna make calls and send messages and stuff like this, dont bother bu... moreHave you seen one of the new Apps you can get for an iPhone?
Basically you can put your Photoshop toolbars on the iPhone screen and it links to your PC or Mac via wireless to control Photoshop.
It's called Photokeys, Photoshop remote.
You'll find the iPhone can be very professional in a wide range of fields.
MtoxXxic, 01 Mar 2009guys i wonder why these people keep saying that it's difficult to work with winmo? i got my om... moreWinmo is not prof. it's not even semi-prof it's just garbage from the middle-age. Symbian is professional!
btw -> any new leaks on the upcomming new iphone?
