Not that Microsoft's Windows Mobile 7 is anything official yet, it's expectable that Microsoft is working on a Windows Mobile 6.x follower which is - most likely - the number 7. However, if today's information turns out to be true, Microsoft might want to skip 7 in favor of 8 already (at least 8 is a lucky number) because - according to Beyond Binary (a CNet News blog) - Microsoft has recently informed some of its partners that it has had to delay Windows Mobile 7. Partners (like ODMs and carriers) who had expected to have a final release in their hands by early next year have been told now that the new Windows Mobile platform won't be ready until the second half of next year, sources told CNET News.

Definitely bad news because Windows Mobile urgently need its refresh and if Windows Mobile 7 is postponed to the second half of 2009, it's most likely that we will not see devices before end of 2009. Nevertheless, every bad news also have a positive aspect and in this case it means you don't have to hold up for a new device but you can get your new i900 Omnia, Touch Diamond, Touch Pro or Touch HD today already because it will last for the next 12 months anyway.
