What exactly does the latest version of Windows Mobile 6.5.3 entail? Well, apart from capacitive touchscreen support, you will be able to enjoy multitouch controls sans stylus, consistent navigation, a horizontal scroll bar that does away with tabs, a magnifier for touch support in legacy applications, the ability to drag-and-drop icons onto the Start Screen, reduced browser page load time and better memory management among others. Apart from that runtime tools such as .NET CF 3.5, SQL CE 3.1 have also been updated, alongside the inclusion of Arabic read/write document support to reach a wider audience. All of these should have been included from a long time ago, but at least Microsoft is moving in the right direction. Let us hope that Windows Mobile 7 will bring many more updates that help them catch up with Android and the iPhone OS.
