    Saw this today, figured it was worth a post for those of you who came from WinMo or were thinking about maybe going back to WinMo. :icon_evil:

    Just found it funny to see that Android stole the thunder from WinMo so they may push it back to let the Android buzz die out.... little do they know we aren't going anywhere :icon_ devil:

    I really just feel bad for those that work at microsoft (such as a couple family members) who have to use winmo for work... they have nothing to do with winmo, yet they suffer lol

    There was a CNet top devices of 2010 that showed a Xperia running Android.

    As to M$ pushing back WM7 I can believe they are using Android as an excuse but seriously doubt it is the reason. Far more likely, IMHO that they just can't get a decent build that is worth updating for... they screwed around a LOT with WM6.5 builds and very few maid any real difference. More like M$ is just playing this card to buy them time so they can try to develop something worth updating for (seeing as 6.5 for all practical purposes was a flop and not a huge improvement from 6.1, even on the best cooked ROMs).
