Just announced. Emphasis seems to be on making WiMo more finger-friendly. WiMo6.5 will be available on devices only from Q4 though, according to Microsoft. Oddly enough, they're (MS) saying none of the phones currently in the market will receive updates to 6.5.

Do either Vodafone (Mumbai) or AirTel (Mumbai) offer any 'unlimited usage' plans (to be able to stay connected while on the go) for under 500 bucks?
Would this be the GPRS/EDGE facility?

Airtel offers Mobile-office unlimited net access for Rs.399 p.m.

I guess the access is through GPRS/EDGE.

Let me add, its full access through EDGE/GPRS but there is a free download limit of 100 MB IIRC with 399 rest will be charged at 10paise/10kb or something like that.

Just dial customer service of both service providers and get the details.

That would be Airtel Live, with limited access but unlimited download limit.

congrats!!! BTW what do you get when you start your phone SPL 1.07.OREF version or 1.07.Opil (dont exactly remember.) ? If you are getting the first one you can upgrade to win 6.1
