With all the hype around the iPhone & Android phone one could almost forget that Windows Mobile is also a significant player in that market. I came across a video today that shows a walk-through for the latest version (6.5) running on a HTC Diamond II. It is interesting to see the many changes.

- The Browser: The phone sport a full desktop version of IE displaying web content in the same way as on your desktop. You can also select to view a mobile compatible version if you want to.
- “tag”: Tag is an app that lets you scan barcode type tags in public spaces (billboards, magazines etc.) and will pull up relevant web content. Great for advertising & marketing campaigns.
Anyway, look and see what you think:
