While I was in Seattle earlier this year for the 2008 Möbius event already, Microsoft decided to hold another Möbius conference this week which I call Winter Möbius 2008 now. And while I have no further information yet, what Microsoft and its partners might show-off, I'm sure it will packed with loads information again. Hopefully Microsoft is able to give the Möbius attendees another sneak-peak into their Windows Mobile roadmap (not to mention Windows Mobile 6.5 and Windows Mobile 7 here) and service strategy but also other topics like Windows 7 on Netbooks and the never dying rumor of an upcoming Zune Phone (which was recently code-named "Pink") might be interesting.

That said I'm not sure how much I/we will be able to unveil and share with you since such kind of outlooks are always under NDA. And if you haven't heard about Möbius before, it's an invitation-only community (with roughly 100+ members now) of the - as the website describes it - world's most influential technology pundits and online writers/bloggers, initiated back in 2000 by Microsoft. The yearly Möbius conference brings together around 25 Möbians which normally interact behind the scenes with companies, big and small, to shape the direction of devices, services, pricing, design and the culture of consumer technology. While Möbius isn't a full featured NDA event/briefing, much of the information are given under a gentlemen agreed handshake NDA and this worked fine all the years before. As a matter of fact, Möbius isn't just another press or analysts briefing but the main part of it is the vital discussion between the attendees, Microsoft and its partners. It's 48 hours of discussions, sharing information and thoughts about mobility.

Since I haven't received an agenda yet, I'm not sure what Microsoft plans to present nor I have any information yet which partners might present. In the past years we had discussions with HTC, Motorola, Sony Ericsson, i-mate, MWg, Orange, Sling Media and many other companies and most of them gave interesting insights.

Winter Möbius 2008 kicks-off tonight with the traditional opening reception and after I should know more. For sure I will keep you updated here on the::unwired (don't forget to subscribe to our RSS feed). But for real time updates you can also follow the::unwired Twitter feed here.

Last but not least the full disclosure: Microsoft is sponsoring this event which means Microsoft takes care of the flight ticket, the hotel and the meals.

Cheers ~ Arne
