    wow that's great! It seems that all big Mobile manufacturing companies are interested in Windows Phone 7 series. lets hope that we will get lot of device models to choose from.

    Do anyone have any idea that the current WinMO 6.5 devices are upgradeable to Windows phone 7 series ?

    So far the answer is no. I googled it to see if anyone is saying anything about it and I found this article on a site called BGR

    Natasha Kwan, Microsoft’s General Manager for Mobile Communications Business in the Asia-Pacific market, has spoken, and Windows Mobile 6 owners are not going to like what they hear. When asked about the possiblity of a Windows Mobile 6 upgrade path, Kwan dropped this bomshell to tech blog APC: “Because we have very specific requirements for Windows Phone 7 Series the current phones we have right now will not be upgradable.” And that includes the HTC HD2. While the HD2 meets the extensive list of hardware component requirements, it fails to fulfill one superficial prerequisite: it has more than 3 dedicated buttons. Perhaps this is one of the first, albeit painful, steps in a better Windows mobile platform experience for all. However, we now know this for certain: if you want to run Windows Phone 7, you’re going to need some new hardware
