No, this is not Windows Phone 7, this is a completely different mobile OS, which is designed for the business. Its name is Windows Embedded Handheld. I really hope that Microsoft are going to change this name, because I can hardly pronounce it.

The idea of Microsoft for this OS is to be released in about 6 months (WOW!). This version will be based on the old Windows Mobile 6.5. In the second half of 2011 they are planning to release its next version based on the new Windows Phone 7 Technology.

The new OS was presented on Motorola ES400 device.

I'm wondering whether this strategy is right. The business doesn't need a "new OS", which has the same possibilities as their old Windows Mobile OS. I also think that it's not correct to have two different mobile OS versions for business and for personal use. Do we have different versions of Windows desktop OS for business and for gaming? Yes, we have Windows Server, but this is different, because server OSs are used for specific needs.

There isn't many information about this OS, so I might be wrong. Read the article and give me your opinion.
