Mobile OS finally set for update after long wait

Microsoft is reportedly set to show off the long-awaited Windows Mobile 7 software next month at Mobile World Congress, according to CNET. Unnamed sources claim the company is still in the process of finalizing code for the OS update. The development is expected to be mostly complete by the end of summer, allowing the new OS to ship on devices by the end of the year.

Earlier reports suggest the Windows Mobile 7 launch may be delayed until 2011. As companies wait for the major revision, many of the recent smartphone introductions have focused on other platforms such as Android. Motorola has admitted that its 2010 lineup will not include any devices based on Microsoft's mobile platform.

Microsoft has yet to disclose full details regarding Windows Mobile 7 and any upcoming devices. Aside from MWC, additional information should also be made available at the Mix 10 trade show also held in March.
