Windows Mobile 6.5.3 Details Emerge, Multitouch!!

Labels: , , , , ,

It looks like some of the highlight of the upcoming Windows Mobile 6.5.3 have just been published somewhere. The most exciting feature (at least I think it is) is the inclusion of multitouch. The full list is below so you can briefly skim through that.

  • Platform to enable multitouch
  • Touch controls throughout system (no need for stylus)
  • Consistent Navigation
  • Horizontal scroll bar replaces tabs (think settings>system>about screen)
  • Magnifier to bring touch support to legacy applications
  • Simplified out-of-box experience with fewer steps
  • Drag and drop icons on Start Screen
  • Browser page load time decreased and memory management improved
  • Browser pan & flick gestures smoothed and zoom & rotation speed increased
  • Updated runtime tools (.NET CF 3.5, SQL CE 3.1)
  • Arabic read/write document support
  • Watson (error reporting) improvements and bug fixes

No doubt we'll see more of Windows Mobile 6.5.3 at MWC in under two weeks. We'll also see more phones running it, not just the Sony Ericsson Faith Aspen.
