We've discussed as far back as February that Microsoft was likely sending the "Windows Mobile" moniker the way of the dinosaur and instead going with "Windows Phone." Looks like they haven't forgot.
According to The Inquirer (.net, not the tabloid) [via Giz], the change indeed is coming with
Windows Mobile 6.5 — er, the next release of Windows Mobile — er, the next release of Microsoft's operating system for mobile phones. And as much as we loathe the idea of trying to discuss various versions of an OS without the handy numeral suffixes (never mind that our little site here is called WMExperts), we'll (hardly) be the first to say that things are in need of a reboot. Badly.
Says The Inquirer:
The My Phone service certainly seems to have begun that transition to a more seamless desktop-mobile experience.
But what say you, dear reader?
