T-Mobile (UK) Release Windows Mobile 6

This made me very happy yesterday when Jason Langridge posted this.  T-Mobile have officially released Windows Mobile 6 for a range of their Windows Mobile phones, including my MDA Vario II.

All you need to do is go to the Download Site and grab the release.

Few comments I have after installing it.

  • WM6 wipes everything on your phone
  • Very hard to find a good backup program. I gave up, copied all the files onto my laptop and numbers onto my sim card (I found an option in one of the menus to do this).  Meant I lost all SMS messages.
  • Install is very easy.  Plug phone in over USB, run the installer and it will install happily
  • WM6 looks very nice
  • Its faster

It will keep me happy until a iPhone with 3G and built in GPS is released.  Having said that, Windows Mobile 6.1 is on some of the new phones.  Screenshots are at http://www.boygeniusreport.com/2007/12/03/windows-mobile-61-standard-in-100-pictures/

I also installed TouchPal which is very cool.
