Windows Mobile Train Race video also outs Windows Mobile 7 (surprise!)
Everybody, meet Mel. Mel, meet everybody. See, Mel was part of a pretty cool thing Microsoft did leading up to the Professional Developers Conference last year in Los Angeles. A bunch of WinMo devs took a train from Seattle to L.A., and on the 36-hour journey they developed some eco-friendly apps. And Mel, as you can see, introduces himself as a member of the Windows Mobile 7 team. That in and of itself isn't that remarkable -- there surely are tons of people on it. But Mel did out himself before WM7's even been announced, and that makes us smile.
So thanks, Mel. Now check out more on the WinMo Train Race after the break.

This is Mel. Not sure what the fuss about this video is, but I'm glad to see so much excitement building around Windows Mobile. Thanks to Phil and team for all the news and tidbids you've been posting on WMExperts. Can't say if any of it is true, but we're definitely working on some extremely cool stuff and can't wait till it's shown to the world. Reading this buzz makes my job interesting and fun. Thanks and keep up the great work. -Mel

Your feedback and kind words are much appreciated. Don't believe all the speculation you read on the Internet :) Start thinking about the cool apps you'll write for WM7. It will be a great developer platform :) -Mel
@Mobile 7 Kyle: Eh, don't read too much into anything. What started out as a post about the Train Race (which I think is very cool, btw) kinda devolved into "OMG, he mentioned Windows Mobile 7!" lol
