The first report provides some Windows Mobile release information, though the data was first made public in April this year. Specifically, Crossbow is due to ship to OEMs in Q4 to allow them plenty of time to get devices ready for the OS' introduction in late Q1/early Q2 2007. Crossbow is expected to give gadgets more a better telephony experience and to improve its messaging technology.

Come Q4 2007, and Microsoft will release 'Photon', the follow up to Crossbow, to developers. Photon is said to sport a new Windows CE foundation. It's due to be launched to the public Q1/Q2 2008. ®
