A few days ago it was speculated that Microsoft may use the upcoming Professional Developers Conference (PDC) in November to release some code or something about WM7 to those lucky attendees.
Well, to rain on that parade is Microsoft themselves. Mary Jo Foley contacted them directly and a spokesperson responded to her request on the matter thusly:
As far as PDC goes, Microsoft will be talking about WM6.5 but nothing about the rumored WM6.5.1.
Disappointing, yes. Surprising? Not really. We suppose it is good marketing to concentrate on your current "big thing" and not invalidate all that work by simultaneously making it seem obsolete.
