Windows Mobile 6.1 spotted

Readers of this blog may recall my frustration at Microsoft's spectacularly unspectacular press conference last week at Mobile World Congress. They just didn't have much to say, which was really annoying given that everyone was expecting something about an update to Windows Mobile - either WinMob 7 (yeah right) or, more reasonably, Windows Mobile 6.

Readers of this blog may recall my frustration at Microsoft's spectacularly unspectacular press conference last week at Mobile World Congress. They just didn't have much to say, which was really annoying given that everyone was expecting something about an update to Windows Mobile - either WinMob 7 (yeah right) or, more reasonably, Windows Mobile 6.1. It's no secret that 6.1 exists.

And then, via a Hungarian blog (and Coolsmartphone, where I spotted it), comes this. On Sony Ericsson's Xperia WinMob phone, it's... Windows Mobile 6.1. As to why I didn't spot this myself, in my defence we only flew into Barcelona as the Sony Ericsson launch party was underway.

So, Microsoft, why the reticence? Is 6.1 out there or not?
