WM7 Delayed to Mid-2009???

Enthusiast sites are reporting that Windows Mobile 7 has been delayed to early or mid 2009. With Google releasing it's 1st Android phone a few hours ago. Apple's Mac OS for phones, Symbian, RIM all in the mobile OS race it comes to a surprise that MS isn't pushing for an earlier release. I do think that a late but great release is better than a fast yet buggy release.

There is no question that WM has room for improvement. Let's hope the elves at Redmond are working night and day to improve my mobile OS of choice.

We can't really be too hard on MS for releasing the next version 0.5 or even 1.5 years late... look at palm OS it's been 4 years since they released anything [although rumor has it NOVA is due out Apr 09]. I think WM should evolve or it will suffer the fate of palm. Consumers want ease of use, multimedia, fast browser, messaging whilst the Enterprise wants these with security. I think MS can do it they just need more time.

All you need is 2 images [3 if you want to change the Start Menu image as well] of the proper resolution.

What you do is copy the files to \Windows directory and viola! Orientation Aware Backgrounds!
--
Notes: The theme's default images will be used once you switch themes. So you would need to copy the files back again to \Windows dir for it to work again, what I do is I have placed Wallpaper sets in ZIP files on my Storage Card so I can change and change as desired.…
