Windows Phone: more smart, less phone?

Given that I've gone from a Windows Mobile fan to something of a Windows Mobile diehard in my phone use (I've been disappointed with the glacial development and short term solutions of the last two Windows Mobile releases even as I've enjoyed new features and the best mobile browser anywhere - Skyfire not Mobile IE, of course), I'm still undecided about how much I like Windows Phone 7.

Microsoft announced Windows Mobile 6.5 today at Mobile World Congress in Spain and as a fan of the Windows Mobile OS, I have to say I am pretty disappointed with the update and the 9+ months we have to wait to actually see it on any device. I have seen a few demos of 6.5 in action and in my opinion it just adds the UI enhancements we saw on Standard (non-touch screen) devices with Windows Mobile 6.1 and makes it more finger friendly. There is also an improved web browser (Opera Mobile already gives us a superior browsing experience) and some services that will be supported on 6.5 devices. I am sure we will see some cool devices come out in late 2009, but honestly there is nothing I see here that compels me to start saving up to run out and buy a Windows Mobile device.
