A few weeks ago we saw an excellent interview with HTC's Eric Lin by Japanese site Akihabra News. The third part of that interview is now available. [via]

In the final installment, Lin gives a look at the HTC Magic, which runs Anrdoid, and the HTC Snap. He also talks about upgrades to Windows Mobile 6.5. You'll want to watch the whole interview, but here's a teaser:

"Microsoft has not announced any plans for 6.5 for Smartphones, for Standard edition yet. So, we cannot promise a 6.5 upgrade for Snap, because Microsoft has not offered 6.5 for Smartphones yet.However, we have absolutely promised a 6.5 upgrade for Diamond 2 and (Touch) Pro 2.

"And, in fact, we made changes to how 6.1 works and to the hardware of Diamond 2 and Pro 2 so that when our customers upgrade to 6.5, that everything will work the same, that they will not have to relearn anything."
