First and foremost, WinMo 6.5 is an evolutionary step forward from where the WinMo platform is currently. And the inclusion of a store featuring downloadable content is a must these days.
But where I believe many are missing the point is by comparing WinMo 6.5 to the iPhone. That is not really a direct comparison. Were Microsoft to release an operating system over which they have strict control, which is available on only one device, also designed, built and controlled by Microsoft, then it would be accurate to judge both in parallel.
There are rumors, of course, about the Microsoft Pink phone, but even then I don't think it would be a fair comparison."
