It's not that HP hates Windows Mobile 6; after all, the newer iPAQs sport WM6. It's just that HP hates us. I can't think of any other explanation, because the one that HP cites (quoted from the unwired below) just doesn't hold water. Well, actually it does, but that doesn't mean we have to like it.
The computer giant cited "the potential for long delays, as well as possible carry-over costs" to its customers as reasons for this decision. Beside not offering any upgrades for existing customers, HP will also continues to offer these devices with Windows Mobile 5.0 only.
