Windows Mobile 2005 (“Magneto”) Leaked

Yes, it’s real. No, I’m not going to link to anywhere to get it. But it seems that a ROM image for the next generation Windows Mobile for Pocket PC operating system, codenamed Magneto, has leaked onto the internet. The ROM image is for the XDA II, and includes Phone Edition features (based on the screeshots I’ve seen).

Microsoft cracked down lawyer-style on people who were posting screenshots of WM2005 (myself included) a while back, so I can’t imagine they’re happy about this. But I wonder if they can look at the bright side, and look at all the free buzz and excitement this is generating for the new OS.

I really hope an upgrade to WM2005 is made available for my Dell Axim x50v, and the Audiovox SMT5600 Smartphone. Are you listening, Dell and Audiovox/Cingular?!

    I have been contemplating an Axim X50v purchase, but the forthcoming release of WM2005 has been holding me back. I would think that there are others like myself who would buy product now if Dell made a commitment to support Magneto.

    I would definitely buy an x50v right now if Dell committed to a WinMobile 2005 upgrade.
