We've been calling Windows Mobile WinMo for ages, and so has everyone else. But ever since MWC and the announcement of Windows Phone 7 Series we haven't heard anyone mention Windows Phone as WinPho. So we did. And we are copyrighting it in text right here. So Microsoft, start payin' to use that, buddy. Anyway, we learned this week that WinMo 6.5, the new operating system coming to several phones in the upcoming months will be renamed to Windows Phone Starter Edition, mainly due to Microsoft's everlasting rule of launching a product and naming it something else without changing anything but the wrapper.
Zdnet got a hold of a Windows Mobile spokesperson who said something interesting when asked about the difference between WinMo 6.5 and if WinPho Starter Edition will be a stripped-down version.
The Windows Phone 6 Starter Edition SKU is offered in multi-language versions with and without Microsoft Office Mobile and supports 2G (GSM), 2.5G (CDMA2000 xRTT, EDGE, GPRS), CDMA (Rev A, EV-DO Revision A), and TD-SCDMA radios.
