With Microsoft gearing up for the release of Windows Phone 7 series, many have wondered what’s going to happen with Windows Mobile 6.5. Apparently, it will now be rebranded as Windows Phone Starter Edition. We’re not sure what makes it a “starter” phone and in fact it’ll likely appeal to enthusiasts more than new smartphone owners.
Things would be too easy if there were only two lines and Engadget says there is a potential for two Windows Mobile 6.5 brands — Windows Phone Classic and the aforementioned Windows Phone Starter Edition. If they start adding Windows Mobile Ultimate, then we’ve got problems.
