Following Motorola's casual talk about Windows Mobile 6.5, this week, Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer became a little bit more detailed about Microsoft's upcoming Windows Mobile release plans. During Telstra's Investor Day in Australia, in the Q&A session, Ballmer mentioned an upcoming Windows Mobile 6.5 release for next year (2009) and Windows Mobile 7 the year after (2010): "With releases we'll make this year - releases we'll make with 6.5 next year, Windows Mobile 7, I think we have a pretty interesting roadmap".
While Motorola's hint of Windows Mobile 6.5 might was a mistake, with this confirmation Windows Mobile 6.5 is - more or less - official.

While there are absolutely no information available yet what Windows Mobile 6.5 will bring or might makes different, a more formal announcement can be expected during next February's Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.

Cheers ~ Arne
